    Wrist shot request - dressed down "dressy" watches

    Let's see some wrist shots of watches that are normally considered dressy or formal that you've dressed down with a strap change. I'm thinking about getting an 1815 down the road as a casual wearer and would love to get some ideas.

    I once saw someone here post a pic of their gold Rolex on a brightly colored striped Nato band!

    Can't help you with the pics but I'd say that the 1815 would look good on a nice brown calf leather strap. It's just an observation/deck watch dial in a Lange case. Black would look too dressy IMO. Though I did see pics of a guy in casual dress with a Lange watch and a bunch of colorful fabric bracelets on his wrist which ended up looking really good. He had a black gator strap on it. I forget where I saw it.

    Personal opinion - a nice dress watch can be worn in almost any situation. I routinely wear my dress"y" watches w jeans\tshirt, or with shorts\tanktop. Only things I don't wear dress watch for are sports\water.
    I think a white dial dress watch on a nice brown or black leather strap will look perfectly fine w a casual outfit.

    I was thinking the same. Thanks it's good to know the name of this dial "genre" :)
