The right strap counts for alot & it doesn't always have to be an expensive one.
case in point is my Hirsch Liberty (which is like a $35 strap), I put it on a cheap homage I had & it completely changed the watch, made it look great & was super comfortable. I sold the homage, but kept the strap. Put it on a Mickey Mouse watch I had & again completely changed it & made it super comfortable to wear. I like that strap so much I'm buyin another one in brown.
My Hirsch Liberty rescued my Hamilton Sunset from gathering dust because the strap was uncomfortable. It's a little lighter than the OEM strap, but it fit the character of the watch just fine.
