I can't decide either.
I like the color of the castro but the design doesn't seem to fit the tangente.
Both these straps seem a bit too rugged for the style of your Tangente.

I like the color of the Castro but like others I do not think it fits the Nomos.
Yes, both of those straps look great and compliment a field watch nicely - of which your Nomos is not.
Undoubtedly the Tangente would look great with a stap with some of the same elements as the ones in those straps (e.g. brown coulour, slightly grained surface, similar or little less thickness) but without some of the details (too bold stitching, pre-worn?) that turn those too much into military style.
Neither, prefer OEM Cordovan.

As others have said, Nomos watches are somewhat elegant and refined and are well-suited for straps that have the same characteristics. That doesn't mean that your Tangente will look bad on a more rugged strap, however. Personally, I think either of those straps you show would look fine; and would "toughen up" the look of the watch...in a good way.
