    Which strap for this old girl?

    None of the above is an acceptable answer. However, if you say none of the above, please give a suggestion.

    Blue gator. Genuine gator. Not genuinely blue.


    Brown, vintage style leather.


    Black, vintage style leather.

    First one.

    The other two don’t look good at all.

    I'll have to say none of the above.

    Go with an alligator, but in black or dark brown.

    None of the above: they all take the eye away from the watch
    In the second two it’s the big stitches
    And the swirly texture of the croc clashes with the amazing engraving on the bezel


    I’d go really simple: a black or brown strap with a subtle texture eg pigskin (first two) or buffalo grain(right)

    Trust me, the watch will shine

    Agreed that a rich brown strap would compliment the sandy color dial and elevate the elegance of the watch. Where I disagree is alligator (a modern hide) as that would have never gone on a watch of that vintage.
