Found this strap to go with my incoming Halios Tropik B with grey dial.

There is a very nice review of this strap maker here:

Here is the source page to order. You have to register to purchase, so be sure to check your notification preferences so you aren't bombarded by etsy spam.

The ordering process was easy. I appreciate the fact that they have in-stock, ready to go straps. I was contacted by the owner shortly after completing the purchase. He was interested in what watch/watches I would be using the strap for.

The strap arrived from Canada about 5 business days later with a nice note:

The strap is a rich, blood red/brown affair, with rally perforations.

Nice touch, slanted cut on the long end.

My only current 22mm lug watch, an older Android quartz model. Will use it to break in the leather till the Halios comes in.

Overall very pleased with the product and the ease of transaction. Thanks for looking!

Yes, very nice. It appears it won't need too long of a break in period.

I love the strap ... I am more of a strap than bracelet guy anyway. I am not sure about the angled cut on the end though. Is that an option you chose?

The angled cut actually makes it easier to slide the end through the keeper.
