Hello Senor Covey, welcome to myBulova. This is a nice old Military issued watch, nice to have gotten it from the original owner. I'm not sure what type strap these originally have but it was most likely some type of canvas.

I have seen them on eBay as well.  Good luck, it would be awesome to get an original NOS band for it.
