    Which strap looks best, opinions please

    Here it is guys and gals. I just got this Hamilton Khaki Sunset and it came on the factory dk brown leather strap. Well me being an accessory guy I ordered up a rubber strap and two Hirsch Liberty straps. Having a silver face I think they all look pretty good, but you tell me. Which one works the best and why. Enjoy.

    on black rubber style band.

    The black stitched one by a mile for me. Classy.

    I also think the black hirsch works best. The tan is ok, nothing amazing IMO. Not really into the look of the rubber combo.

    the brown one is perfection! the black looks good too, and i dont like the pattern on the rubber. pilot watches on rubber dont mesh well, IMO.

    I normally say black, but I think the tan works very well with that watch.

    Nix the rubber, the black dresses it up a bit and the tan gives it a sportier look.

    Oh great, this answer's gonna clear everything right up...

    My bet is that, when the watch is worn, the rubber strap will pop the watch the best because of the textural contract between the black matte strap and the satiny metallic watch finish. Give it a very modern hi-tech look

    Just my take. I understand Palaco's point, but this time I think it'll work. That hammy is not a typical pilot...
