    http://www.watchbandsonline.com/hirsch_leather/

    www.watchband.biz (look for their 24mm straps)

    www.broadarrow.net (for 24mm Zulu straps)


    http://www.hirschag.com/ (Hirsch factory site). There was also a good article about Hirsch straps in Watchtime magazine last year. They are contracted out by many premium watch brands (Such as Glashutte Original, Blancpain, and some Vacheron) to make their straps. GO's magazine had a good article about Hirsch as well this last year.

    Well, they're handmade, aren't they? :thinking:

    So I couldn't see why you shouldn't be able to order custom length on your strap? :dunno:

    I have a couple of Hirsch straps that I bought brand new a few weeks ago for the Speedy that I sold yesterday so I'll be putting them up in the marketplace this weekend. Apparently the lug spacing on the 44mm speedys is 22 not 20 so they didn't fit. The construction of them is right up there with the best so I can see why they supply straps to makers like GO and Vacheron.

    Actually, I'd thought they'd be more expensive. :thinking:

    Jeff, Is your new Co-Axial Speedmaster 44mm?

    You can try to squish the 22mm straps into a 20mm lug width, I did that on my GO Navigator with one of my Hirsch 20 mm Straps and it looks great.

    That might have worked, but it seems that Jeff just sold his Co-ax Speedy. :cheers:
