    Fair enough, I can understand that.

    You could try Combat Straps for a custom made strap. He is quite happy to make TAG Heuer style straps that are compatible with either 2mm or 3mm clasps. I was in touch with him a few years ago but didn't go ahead with an order because I couldn't settle on a design. That was my limitation, not his.

    @Nalin Thank you for that great information. I hope you didn't have to look through a bunch of TAG Heuer webpages to get it.

    I continue to be astounded by how difficult it is to buy OEM straps and bracelets from the Swiss watch companies.

    Look at Apple: they sell a bunch of straps and bracelets that don't vary much in size, and you can change them using simple tool-less mechanisms.

    I found a potential solution. Zenith makes 42mm El Primero watches that have 21mm interhorn (lug width) distance. It's not TAG Heuer, but at least it's within LVMH. I can order the strap and clasp from my local Zenith authorized dealer. Before I do so, does anyone know if there is any obvious problem or incompatibility?

    So you're going to wear a zenith strap and clasp on a TH.:whistling:

    It's cheaper so go with combat straps he can make a 21mm lugwidth strap and provide a TH style clasp:

    Should be no problem fitting a 21mm Zenith strap to a 21mm lug-width TAG (neither Zenith nor TAG play weird games with their spring bars like some companies do). But the clasp could probably be another story, so unless it's a pin buckle I'd see if there's any way to compare them. If your local Zenith AD also carries TAG they can probably help with that.

    TAG Heuer makes 21mm leather straps with clasps. Here are two examples:
    - Strap for the Green Cal 16 Formula 1 CAZ2016.FC6473 (green stitch)
    - Strap for the Senna Cal 16 Formula 1 CAZ201B.FC6487 (yellow stitch)
    There might be others, not sure, but that's what I'd search for if one wants 21mm OEM + Clasp.

    I also believe 22mm straps can fit ok; while not perfect, I do it all the time with my 21mm lug F1. I think these two in 22mm might do nicely, both have blue stitching to match the Siffert Autavia.
    - Strap for the Fangio Cal 16 Carrera CV201AT.FC6475 (light blue stitch)
    - Strap for the Monaco CAW211D.FC6300 (dark blue stitch)*
    *Note: The FC6300 comes with 22mm quick release spring bars. You'll have to remove these and replace with standard 21mm spring bars.
