    Victorinox Clous de Paris Recommendations

    Pretty new to the watch scene, but I've got a Victorinox Clous de Paris Ambassador coming in a few weeks. I love the dial, but the SS bracelet paired with it is a bit overpowering for me. I definitely want to put a different strap on it, but I've never worried about having to do this before.

    What are some good sources for straps? What material and color would y'all recommend to pair with this beauty? I'm leaning towards a leather Rally or Nato style strap, but I'm not really sure.

    Picture attached for reference!

    Any suggestions at all out there?

    I'm really torn about which direction to take the watch, as it could go more towards everyday sport or dressy depending on the style of strap.

    A 2-piece black leather would be my first choice and probably light brown/tan works as well. I believe that is a fairly thick watch. If that is the case, then the strap shouldn't be too thin or delicate in appearance. You didn't mention a budget and whether you wanted bespoke or off the shelf. Take a look at Toshi Straps or Micah Vintager for the former and Panatime for the latter.

    Thank you for the response! I think black is definitely the safest route to go, but brown is calling to me on this one for some reason. It is definitely a thicker case, which is the only aspect I'm worried about with switching to leather. However, the straps from Toshi Straps look to be plenty rugged enough to pull it off. Thank you again for the suggestions!

    I'm not terribly worried about budget (~$100 or so) or source, as long as the strap is a quality piece that will last.
