Post Strap suggestion for my new addition please
Last night I managed to finish one of long-waited projects. It is hard to find a free time these days.

It powered by reliable 6497 in 42mm O&W case. Changed the flat crystal to the dome and vintagised the case as well as the hands set.

Currently it fitted with 20mm dark brown handmade (poorly made) strap with a bronze buckle that I could find in my drawer.

I would be appreciated if you could suggest a suitable type of strap that you think it will compliment the watch better.

Thanks for looking. :)

Definitely has to be an aged leather strap. That watch is perfectly vintaged and needs the right leather to compliment it.

I bent the strap up and down, it creates the wrinkled all over the strap. Looks cool and very vintage now.
