I've been thinking about this too, but OEM is eye-wateringly expensive, particularly with the deployant clasp. So I will experiment with 3rd party straps first, although the 19mm lug width is a pain.

Clarky - what's the strap in your photo (it looks great)?

This is the strap I have on my AT: http://www.watchobsession.co.uk/HIRSCH- ... trap-BROWN

It comes in 20mm and 19mm as well as others, and as an added bonus it is water resistant leather :thumbup:

I also have the same strap in dark blue which works very well with the blue dial

A new Omega buckle will cost you about £20 a vintage one about £50

Thanks Clarky for the info on straps and buckles. Like Greg, I need to make this happen. And I will! :)

Grab and go 80's digital I've been wearing for work more recently.. My Dad has worn a very similar Seiko since the late 70's. Can't really argue with the ease of use and reliability of it, and cheap cost.

After work, another recent buy from eBay is this Chinese skeleton auto:
