    Chronostop... Think I have found the right strap... haven't I?

    Hi Gents!

    Todays arrival... not a watch, but a strap! Since getting advice on what watch to keep.. Chronograph or Chronostop?

    I have been unsure about the strap since keeping the Chronostop.

    My first choice was a Mesh Bracelet...





    After a couple of days of this... it was growing on me... but I have never been 100% sure... So, I changed to the black leather.....




    Still not 100% sure... I had been eying up a silicone strap... as I had searched 'orange stitch' strap on the bay, when I first got the watch, as I thought this would work well with the bright orange second hand... this week... I pulled the trigger and here it is!










    Now.. I realise I may have weighted this poll in my favour (few more pics of one than the others)... but what do you think?

    Since coming home tonight and putting this on... I cant stop looking at it! Or... have I not found the right strap yet?

    Cheers

    I see how the sentence 'my first choice was' could have confused... I actual like the Silicone!!!

    I should have said... The first strap on the watch was.....

    So... thats 1 for mesh... 1 for Silicone!

    I voted for the silicone. The stitching really accents the second hand and brings it all together. Even though not original stock, it makes the watch look original from a unique perspective! You could keep looking for a leather with orange stitching, but I think you made the right choice.

    I just picked up an Accutron that didn't come with a band, so toying with the idea of a blue leather. I thought it would compliment the dial, but still on the fence personally. Might have to go your route and try a few out to see what looks best.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    You are really making me regret passing on one just before you bought yours. Damn you.

    I'm surprised to wake up this morning and find the mesh in the lead...

    Mesh was one of the std straps for this cal. Also the leather Id bracelet deployment clasp and stitched leather straps similar to your silicone. Just bought the same watch (see omega forum) Do Google search for pics of original straps.
