    Eterna KonTiki Chronograph - but with leather strap or steel bracelet?

    Please help me with my decision. I've chosen to buy Eterna KonTiki chronograph with ETA Valjoux 7750 movement, Ref. number 1240.41.43.XXXX , but I'm not sure which one would be better looking, can't make up my mind. Your opinion? Below the pics. Thanks!

    Here with ss bracelet, model nr. 1240.41.43.0219:




    Here with brown leather strap, model nr. 1240.41.43.1183:

    If you ever think you'll want the bracelet, buy it on the bracelet. You can add a multitude of straps, including the OEM strap, for less than the bracelet cost. And the premium you pay for buying it on a bracelet is much less than buying the bracelet separately later.

    Thanks to all for your kind replies. Any idea how much the genuine OEM Eterna stainless steel bracelet cost? If bought separately later? I take it is available through official Eterna sellers?

    If you have any interest in the bracelet, buy it with the bracelet. It's too expensive to buy it down the road.

    I'm guessing you'd have to ask a AD the cost of the bracelet.

    Yep, bracelets cost a fortune in comparison to straps. If a bracelet is available, I always try to buy on a bracelet and then get straps later, whether OEM or aftermarket.

    I've actually been trying to track one of those leather straps down. I love the cross stitching. If anyone has a lead for me, that would be awesome.

    Bracelet all the way. You can always get a strap later if you choose to.
