    Can I pull this look off? Two piece nylon strap on Intramatic

    Anyone ever tried putting a 2 piece nylon strap (ie NATO/Zulu/RAF) on a semi-dress watch? I don't really consider the Intramatic a true dress watch and was thinking a solid band in gray or blue so as not to look overstated.

    Any thoughts on colors or patterns?

    A black or charcoal band would make a nice summer watch. That would keep its sleek design without adding any distraction.

    I don't see why you couldn't pull it off. I agree with old and vintage, a charcoal strap would look good.

    You could probably pull off a nautical themed nylon strap, like the one on this Daniel Wellington watch.

    By the way the watch has a silver-like dial with black markers. I replaced the black leather band with brown as I'm not a big fan of black straps.

    I really do like black with orange stripe although I fear it may be too sporty.

    I think the striped nylon actually works - and better than the all-solid nylon. The blue/grey works better than the one with the smaller orange accent stripe.

    If it looks like you're trying to replace the leather strap, you're probably in trouble style-wise. This is one of those times where bolder is probably a bit better...
