    Need your honest opinion, new shoes for my rollie

    Ok- give me your honest opinion please. I personally think my new strap is AWESOME, But it could be like judging the beauty of your own child, i may be blinded. Thats why I need you guys to lay it on me.


    It started with this chocolate brown ostrich strap I had made specifically for my Exp II.








    I loved it but, but I didn't think it completely complimented that gorgeous orange gmt hand, so I ordered a second strap. This one is a hornback top, black croc belly and black stitching. What are your thoughts? Too much? Just right?


    This is a Combat Straps creation.

















    Thanks, Jay.

    Honest opinion:

    I absolutely love the chocolate ostrich strap with the orange stitching. I think it compliments the watch perfectly and is perhaps the best strap I've seen affixed to an Explorer II.

    I don't really like the orange hornback strap at all. Too much orange. Stitching looks a bit less refined than the first strap due to the rough surface of the hornback. Just don't think it works as well with the aesthetics of the watch.

    Both look pretty cool to me, but I prefer the Orange.

    Honest no BS opinion is, the chocolate with orange stitch looks might nice. Extremely sharp. However, the orange strap with black stitch, especially with the white dial strikes me as a bit feminine IMO.

    The black strap with orange stitch had just the right amount of orange to make the gmt hand pop.

    I like the contrast stitching, but prefer something more sporty than leather, such as the Brady Sailcloth strap.

    Thanks everyone for your honesty, im partial to orange, like the orange rubber on the ploprof. Pictures cant do the hornback justice. I appreciate the feedback.
