I have had good luck with Panatime, particularly when they have a promotion (15-30%).

https://panatime.com/

He may offer a forum discount if staff asks for one.

Holbens also has a pretty big ebay store, so if you have ebay bucks or a code, it's a way to save some money.

I have slim wrists so I have pretty much all my straps custom made.

I only turn to Watch Strap Heaven for my leather straps: https://www.watchstrapheaven.com/ I used to do leatherwork so I can vouch for the quality of their leather and stitching. They do ready- and custom-made.

For rubber straps, I have several made by Yellow Dog: https://www.yellowdogwatchstraps.com/ Apart from the length, they also do custom patterns.

I am not a big fan of NATOs but I have nothing against nylon straps. Helm does a good one that does not involve folding back much of the end of the strap. The logo on the buckle is very discreet and doesn't show when the watch is worn. https://helmwatches.com/nylon.html

I need to find out if anyone does custom-made nylon and perlon straps...

P.S. I am very surprised no one has linked Erika's yet: https://erikasoriginals.com/
