Strap type on Snorkel

This was my Grandad's Bulova Snorkel that I've recently aquired. I've been wearing it while my TAG is away for a battery change and have grown to like it. It's a lovely piece and has sentimental value too. The paperwork in the box is dated November 16th 1968.

The watch has a metal expander strap on it from Fixo-Flex, which I think my Grandad had put on as he perfered expander straps on his watches (I have 2 others from him which also have expander type straps).

What I would like to know, if you can tell me, is what type of strap would this watch would have originally been supplied with.

Thanks.

Here is a vintage ad with the strap they were sold with.

Great watch, very cool.

Thanks for the quick reply!!! I've see that photo on this website already. I'd like to see a good photo of an original strap, do you know of any? Do you know if there were different options of straps when bought new.
