Bit of watch help please :o)

My wife has asked me to investigate having the strap replaced on her watch back to what it would originally have had.

Can anyone tell me where I might find one, and what it looks like and the chances of getting this done?

It's a Michel Herbelin

Thanks

buying a new strap is a waste of money for that price range watch. You can take to Torneuau and ask them to tighten the strap and may be polish. It will look like brand new.

Should have said it's more sentimental than it's monetary value, she really wants the original style strap on, but I've no idea where to look!

thats not the same case so not the right strap

This looks similar, but still not the same shape case http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item/35564...NEW_STOCK.html

I would guess that something like this would be correct http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOP-QUALIT...item35c2ad34d9

Have you emailed the manufacturer to ask if they can confirm the model number and correct strap/bracelet for it? Give the impression you want to buy a replacement from them and then see if you can source one elsewhere http://www.michelherbelin.co.uk/aftersales/contact.html
