    I don't believe we have a discussion specifically for this type of strap? I couldn't find one. (If so, Mods, please move this!)

    The past couple of weeks (ever since the posts about the Sinn Dark Star appeared.. :D ) I've been pondering a Bund style strap for one or other of my watches.

    Obviously there's several suppliers, but does anyone have any leather strap suppliers that they'd recommend?

    I'm also wondering if anyone has tried a bund strap like this: (found on Etsy): IE a single unit, rather than the traditional 3 part system.

    I'd buy one of these that I found, but I'm a very cautious online buyer and I don't trust the Etsy marketplace at all.

    Hanhard is selling one as std strap, which (I believe) has had a reasonably positive reception…

    I don't trust Etsy either.
    Atelier Romane makes very good quality straps.
    Watch Strap Bund & Officier - Atelier romane (atelier-romane.com)
    Or for a cheaper alternative, I've been happy with StrapsCo for the price.

    I had a good experience on Etsy. Bought a lovely blue salamander strap for my Grand Seiko. Exceedingly good and a bargain price. I guess like any online marketplace there will be a mixture of stuff on there - some good, some bad. Read the reviews, communicate with the seller, do your due diligence, etc...
