I've had a lingering doubt in my mind ever since I ordered the Stowa about my strap choice. I've gone for the black croco strap.
Now I understand the reservations about paying so much extra for the croco when you could get an aftermarket one much cheaper. That's not the issue though...it's the colour choice.
In my opinion the brown strap probably does make the watch look more striking but I eventually decided that since I would be using it primarily as a dress watch (well, with a work suit), I'd go for the black.
Now that it's getting to the time where I'm expecting an email within the next couple of weeks, I just can't make up my mind.
Obviously it's all about personal preference but I'd like some opinions. What do you prefer? Would the brown work with a black suit/in general on watch that will be worn as a dress watch?
I guess the other option would be to decide on one of them and then get a cheaper aftermarket one in the other colour to have the option.
Also if you go for the croc do they send it seperately with the standard leather one on the watch? It seems unlikely but I've noticed a couple of youtube videos and reviews saying this, I've just assumed they've had some sort of special request.
Anyway, I'm rambling. Cheers for any opinions.
