I know I am in the minority but I really like bund straps, particularly if they are made from very soft leather and wrap most of the way around the wrist. Wondering if some of you feel the same and can recommend good places to purchase these straps. Thank you in advance.

I like them in certain instances, like on a pilot, as long as they don't overwhelm the watch.

The Timex Midget homage to the Ingersoll Midget trench watch came with a nice thin bund strap made by S.B. Foot Tanning Co., in Red Wing, MN. Although the original Ingersoll trench watch likely came with just a strap the bund looks good and is very comfortable.

It's a style that works on some designs.
Originally released in Japan.

I'm a fan too, although I'm so far down the rabbit hole I've had some made (Steveo straps here in the UK is excellent). Dassari make some interesting bund straps, as do Tula (a Russian brand) and Strapcode. Amazon has a pretty decent selection. You can also just buy a bund pad and use it with an existing strap.

I have three bund straps. And i like them for the watches they are on.

one thing i dont like though is if the watch has a display caseback.

Try 922leather.com. He's on Instagram as well. No experience myself but he posts up great pics. The straps look quite good.

I like them, on other people.

The only thing I don't like about the bund strap is that nowadays I feel like it doesn't fit suits. it also feels like you are wearing a big bracelet, but it is comfortable though.
