Depends on the watch. Some of the Elgin military watches came with a Ranger-Tennere plastic-type 1-piece strap in grey I think.
Here's a couple in the Cordovan color:





Canvas straps by Guss and others were also used on military watches:













The Don Juan and Artyslip were also popular for military watches, as they can be used with fixed-lugs or spring bars:

Thanks Scott
Nice collection you have there
I have seen some of the Guss Straps FS on Ebay
My wrist is too large-the Guss straps don't fit me
I've been using Nato straps or Bund leather straps-both look nice on my WWII British and German watches
I've had to use canvas reproduction straps on my US watches from WWII
