I came across these and it's pretty good thickness (some of these are 7mm thick which is perfect for my PO since OEM rubber strap is curved to fill up the lug gap).

Only thing is my PO is 21mm so I'm not sure these are too rigid to flex into my watch. I currently have mine on a 22mm isofrane that's soft and pliable so it fits into the 21mm lugs without much fuss (and easy to remove as well).

Examples..

I've got two. They are good rather than exceptional quality. Without going bespoke they are hard to beat.

I do not own an Omega watch, but I have one "ROBBY" and it is the most uncomfortable strap I have ever owned. I wore it for at least a month everyday hoping the material becomes softer but no. The underside is really stiff. Only way to prevent skin damage for me was to wear it loose so the watch could rotate around my wrist, but that´s not for me.

Ive never put one on my Omega but I have owned one. I agree theyre very rigid but this means theyre very tough and durable. I left mine on a watch pad overnight which helps them bend to your wrist shape. Theyre really good straps for the money but I still think the Omega OEM straps take a lot of beating.

I’ve had a couple of Hirsch Robby and Hirsch Pure straps, I’ve also squeezed a 22mm Robby into 20mm lugs without too much effort. Fitting a 22 into 21mm lugs will provide a really close fit without looking forced IMO.
That said, if you’ve skinny wrists you may find the 22mm Hirsch Robby too long for you. My wrist is 6 3/4” and on a 48mm lug to lug watch, I’m on the last adjustment hole. Same with the 22mm Pure.

Once shaped, the Robby holds it’s shape well.

but I’ve found that all those blocks on the underside to be a bit uncomfortable over time.

I've owned three Robbys and ended up selling them. Like Nat-e and Jasper110 state above, it is not a very comfortable strap. It's a shame because I think they look great.

I had a Robby on a Fortis watch and struggled to find a good fit. The underside has rather stiff blocks that help with ventillation, but make the watch rather uncomfortable when tight. A hole looser, on the other hand, was a tad too loose. Sold the Fortis, got the Omega, I would not consider Robby as replacement strap.
