I happened to drive by a Michael's and remembered seeing a post on Reddit about $3.99 leather watch straps there, so I stopped in and checked it out. Works like a charm. I replaced a black silicone strap with this, and the watch looks amazing. Check out the pictures in the original post:

Totally worth it. Looks great.
