    saHello,
    First post here and apologies if this has been asked already or is not proper decorum but I have a F1 Tag CAC1111 and have been trying to look for alternative strap from the stainless steel one that it comes with.

    I was thinking of getting an original Tag deployment clasp i.e FC5014 or FC5028 and pair the watch with with an aftermarket leather/canvas/sailcloth strap. Yes i am aware it will not be accurate to the watch but aesthetically I think it could work.

    May I ask for suggestions on possible sites/links that offer 18mm lug width leather/canvas/sailcloth straps that work with these potential clasps?

    thank you for your time.

    Thank you for the suggestions. I will check them out. I've tried NATO straps on other watches and don't like them much. I've decided to get the FC 5013 deployment clasp. This would fit a18/16mm strap when I find one that I like. In the meantime, I'm going test with a canvas and and a leather strap.

    and so my search is now complete.as mentioned above, purchased the FC 5013 deployment clasp from TAG for MYR 443 which is about USD 108.61 and this strap https://www.watchstrapworld.com/wat...euer-carrera-models-with-18-16-mm-straps.html which is £33.95. i'm not good at taking pictures but have attached a few here. i've also bought some 18mm bands quick release bands from https://www.bartonwatchbands.com/collections/18mm-20mm-22mm-watch-bands-from-barton to try on when i get bored with the leather option with the TAG clasp.Hope this helps someone else too.
