You can always purchase any strap available on the market.
The process is straightforward: simply buy the strap of your choice and then detach the bronze buckle from the original strap that came with your watch. Next, remove the buckle from the newly purchased strap and swap it with the bronze one.
Just make sure to buy a strap that has holes for the buckle pin similar to those on your original strap. Typically, a hole punch tool creates round or wide holes.
