Need help finding a tapered leather strap

Post by TheJohnP » Mon Jun 10, 2019 10:09 pm

Looking to sell an Alpha watch and the strap needs to be replaced.
Don't want to spend a lot (less than $10 preferably), but need to find a 24mm strap that tapers to 18mm so I can try to keep the original buckle.

My Google-Fu isn't helping me find anything.

Anyone have a link to something that fits the bill?

For tapered watch straps it's often written like:

24/18 or 24/18mm

Try that and see if it helps.

That might be the trick @AnimalMother!

Think I found someone on Etsy who can make one on the cheap.
