They will do that....sweat, oil from the skin etc etc!!

That's the only thing I don't like about these custom/unusual type straps is that you can't change them so easily!!

You could buy the other colour strap from CW tho?!!

This is a thread resurrection and a half :oops: :D
...but, having recently acquired a 2009 FLE, I think that I may have found a strap solution.
I've just bought a blue one of these:

As a follow up...
The strap ordered from eBay, as per the link above, arrived :thumbup:
It's a bit of a tight fit and a little stiff but otherwise spot on :D

Reviving this thread, I have a much loved le2009 whose strap is in terrible shape. What are my options?

There's no pictures of the watch on this thread. Any chance?

From what I read on the first page it seems they're talking about the CW FLE from 2009 - a C2 Lido with pretty blue bits :)

Edit Just noticed which section this thread is in - definitely the right watch :lol:

Yup, that's the correct watch, from the description.

There are several pages of photos in the Reference Gallery which is easily accessed via the CWArchive.

I can't otherwise help with a strap, other than to say that CW had a batch of Vintage Oak straps made for the C2/C20 a few years ago, but they're sold out now.

I take it that central projection is fixed, and non-removeable, so the strap is specially made. In which case, I imagine you would have to go the handmade route. I don't know whether if it has a standard spring bar, or whether there's a pin that can be unscrewed to release the old strap.

It's a very attractive watch. I should think a CW cordovan would look very good with that.

One option is to buy a 26mm strap and then cut out a notch from it on each piece, to match the fixed central lug of the C20. You can re-use the fitting post from the original strap to attach it to the watch.

Alternatively, approach a bespoke strap maker and ask them to make you a strap - and send them the original strap so they can get the precise measurements.
