    Leather strap color to go with everything you wear...

    WIS love to change straps on their watches. However, if you are like me and you stay loyal to one watch for a long period of time, frequent strap changes can be a pain in the arse. My question is, what strap color is most versatile in your opinion? If you had to chose one color to go with everything you wear, what color would that be? Vote.

    Honestly, bracelets.

    My watch strap broadly matches my belt and my shoes - I take some semblance of artistic liberty (e.g., oxblood with dark brown or cognac with walnut), but for the most part, I stay in theme.

    And I wear black shoes only during formal occasions - weddings, black tie events and so on.

    So, most of my watches have brown straps, and a couple have black straps for formal events. However, my watches on bracelet can be worn for all occasions.

    Where's the "there is no such color and what kind of person has just one watch?" option?

    Black would work...all you have to do is give all your non-black shoes and belts to Salvation Army.

    This may come as a shock, but we are the exception, most men I know have one watch and would never consider changing straps. I know, it is hard to comprehend, but please play our game for their sake!

    And show up everywhere in black pumps. Sweats and hoodies with black pumps.

    Black can go with anything. Brown goes better with some things, but black will work, even with something like a light brown 3-piece suit and yellow shirt.

    The belt and shoes color point far more strongly link to the suit and each other than the watch strap...the strap's too peripheral. And that's only with serious business wear and above, IMO. If you're wearing yellow Oxford button-down and navy blue wool sport slacks...black's just fine.

    Granted, dark brown is probably darn close to as versatile.
    The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
