    Need advice on new band for Montblanc

    Hey guys,

    I currently own a Montblanc Star Chrono 4810 (black face). Love the watch, but I am starting to get a bit tired of the black band, black face simplicity. I want to swap out the band.

    I am an avid watcher of Shark Tark, and Kevin O Leary is usually wearing this stunning Panerai with a redish alligator band. I am thinking about also getting a decently high end ($200-$300) red alligator band. Paneristi Public Forum: Red strap on Kevin O'Leary's (Shark Tank) Question But some people are telling me this may not be the best for corporate daily use.

    Maybe if I go with a non-red alligator strap (honey brown?) it would be more work appropriate for regular use.

    (My weekend watch is a rare victorinox XL chrono with white face/blue hands/blue alligator band - which fits the "sport" use...the montblanc would be work only)

    What do you guys think? My current setup is on the left. I am also considering a bracelet (but not the Montblanc bracelet, as it is very chunky and unattractive).

    I prefer leather strap for this watch. How about grey and white python ? Try ABP Paris where you can customized the strap to your heart's content. They also have pre-made ones for less.

    dont think so...google the omega planet ocean with blue strap. IMO tho, i would shoot to get the blue strap for the PO in hopes that the curvature will confirm yo yours.
