As mentioned earlier finding straps for this combo is a nightmare.

North side must be 22mm tapering to 18 and south side 19mm tapering to 18.

So decided to have one custome made for this watch, really happy with the result !! Great quality, and excellent finishing, price also pretty descent, 65 euro's. Ordered from a Dutch company specializing in watch straps.
They have made quit a few UTC straps in the past already so they are familiar with the sizing of these straps

This strap works really well with the Coral E (without UTC)

It's a bargain and some sort of alternative for the Camel croc OEM strap.

Available from Bob watch bands.

Great story indeed. But what is that with the obsession of Dutch people for orange ;) ?

I have never seen our King wear a Coral Emergency yet, but he should certainly consider it as it's just one of the coolest (orange) watches :lol:

I have the same problem with my Coral Emergency and UTC I have bought to accompany the watch but it's 22mm one end and 19mm the other. I have bought a diver pro strap now and was just wondering what you used to cut it down to size. I don't want to mess it up or have it look untidy. Thank you.
