    Leather strap for SARB065 Cocktail time

    OK..as many, I dislike the stock patent leather strap of the Cocktail time. The problem for me is that I have zero (0) style.

    I want a leather strap, want to be a combination of casual and pull off dressy as well. I don't know which is more versatile with this watch...brown or blue????

    I am leaning towards a Colareb...help!!!!!

    hi, my suggestion is a navy strap with gloss finish, you can go with full stitch. A tapered 20/18 also looks good.

    You can go full stitch, but I'd go top stitch only. Slightly better choice than corner stitch only, but not all that common. In Colareb, the Siena tan would probably work great. The Amalfi would probably work too.

    2 points, tho:

    1. Colareb's closed until the 24th...that's posted on their site.
    2. The straps are on the thick and somewhat stiff side.

    Calf is possible. Light blue would blend with, say, blue oxford cloth, and work fine with gray suits. It'd be better with lighter skin tones. Wheat and tan will work with a lot of things, in part because tan leather's rather classic.

    Something to consider: suede.

    The desert brown or tan might be my first 2 choices; the moss green would look great, but might not be quite as versatile.

    This is the best combo on the cocktail. Hands down. Not my pic.



    It's the Hirsch Modena and it's about $40. You can't beat the combo or the price.

    Love it. Probably the best combo I have seen on the 065.

    Grey suede, bit of taupe character - nice casual look for today. I also have a black ostrich leg with royal blue full stitching, made to use the Seiko deployant. I'll try to post a pic of that later.
