Wow; that's one beefy watch! The factory stainless steel bracelet looks great and hence why my vote goes to it!

I voted factory bracelet. The leather looks "too wimpy" for that watch. Yellow rubber?
I'd go for the bracelet. If you want to look at leather, something thick and no nonsense in brown might better fit this one's personality.

I would always go for the bracelet, but in this case that might be overkill (too much of a good thing, and all that...).
Yellow looks good, but would be better on rubber IMO.

Of your two choices, the bracelet. This is the fundamental problem with pairing straps to thick watches, you need a thick strap. I think you need a strap at least 6-7mm at the lug end, heavily padded. Also a black strap with yellow contrast stitching may make it more wearable for more occassions.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
The yellow one looks great, but just doesn't really match this watch. So my vote is the factory one for this watch, then buy another watch to match the yellow strap, maybe a pilots watch or something a bit more minimalist.
