So I have taken the plunge and got my zenith (with the assistance of WUS!) and I have been mostly happy so far. Works perfectly, dial is easy to read the movement is great to look at! Pic below;
My only issue is that I am not 100% sold on the strap. It is a shiny brown alligator strap which does suit my business wear (black leather) and is not casual either. I want to get a black strap with matched stiching and a steel bracelet in order to suit most occasions. Unfortunately the odd 21mm lug sizing makes options limited. My best research so far is the two below:
Black strap: IWC Style Genuine Black Alligator Strap with Black Stitch [iwc_blk_allig_match_21mm] - $114.95 : The Watch Boys, Providing quality products for watch collectors!Steel: Original Zenith El Primero Stainless Steel Watch Bracelet Band 21mm New | eBay
I am not sure if the steel bracelet will fit and it it is going to look right... I have done a mock up below:
Any feedback or other suggestions would be appreciated.
