    Need help with strap choice

    I'm trying to decide on a strap for my Rotary Junior

    It's a nice little watch 30mm with fixed bars, what strap do you think it needs?

    A bund? Or a nice leather two piece?

    Leather two piece, but probably a lighter colour then black....S PS FYI I should admit my bias.....I'm less a fan of bunds...

    Re: Need help with strap choice

    Personally, I think bund straps look better with chunkier watches, and 30mm would be too small for me so I'd go for a normal two piece strap. Or possibly a s/steel one with a little bit of gold trim would look nice, if you could find a vintage one to match the condition of the case? Though that's just my taste, so I'd be interested to hear everyone else's opinions.

    I would only go with a bund if it needs one, that is, if the case back isn't stainless. Otherwise it's a dress watch style case so two or one piece strap.

    +1 to the idea of a pigskin strap.

    I agree with Paleo, a grey leather or maybe even a shade of blue to bring out the hands.
