Replacement Straps

I'm looking to replace the strap on one of my Citizen watches. Does anyone know of any sites or stores that carry a large variety of straps? Reason I'm replacing is because I do not like the the fold over clasp that it comes with. I'd like to change it to a buckle clasp.

Well, just about every store that sells watches sells watch strap and bracelets. Go to a store that sells Citizen if you specifically want a Citizen replacement strap/bracelet.

Otherwise you might try:
If you want something "posh" or unique you can try:
All the best.

The strap is for a Navihawk.


I'm thinking of one of these:

Ballistic Nylon


Kevlar


But there's so many to choose from. It's hard to decide.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I think the little leather strip on the kevlar one is nice, but I suspect mostly it won't be visible when you wear the watch.

If you can't decide, use the "coin toss" method of decision making. I think they are equally good choices; they both look nice and they will both be durable.

All the best.
