    Fifthy Fathoms strap suggestions

    Still very happy with my Fifthy Fathoms and I was thinking about putting it on a nice croco strap.




    But it's very hard to find a picture of a fifthy fathoms on a croco strap. Do any of you guys have that combination or another suggestion for me?

    I think it looks perfect on the Kevlar.

    However you can never go wrong with a nice croc.

    Leather straps on a dive watch always seemed very strange to me.

    Croc straps are perfect for desk diving!

    Here's an idea. Mkii makes a fifty fathoms homage, right? Why not check out the Mkii forum and see what kind of straps those guys have been using on their homages? I think there is fairly long picture thread there. Since more people probably have the Mkii than the Blancpain, you might find a wider variety of pics with different straps.

    its not strange esp. when 1% of people who buy dive watches actually dive with them..especially ones costing 10k

    People can do whatever they want but it seems silly like putting a Submariner on leather looks extremely strange or a really nice dress watch on rubber.

    I think a black Isofrane might look good.

    Anything that does not taper. Dive watches look best with "chunky" bracelets/straps aesthetically to me. Great watch by the way.

    I think a black Stingray strap or a brushed (thick) Milanese bracelet would looks great as well.

    A few of this and some of the other ...
