    Opinion on this strap combo - vintage tan leather and vintage style Seiko SARB031

    I recently bought a tan colored vintage style strap (style is vintage, the leather is new), originally intending to use it on my Fortis Flieger. It looks good on the Flieger but I thought it might have other uses.


    So I tried this combo. I paired it with the classically styled, hi-dome Seiko SARB031. The SARB031 looks most "at home" with a croco/gator strap, but I think this combo gives it an entirely new look. What do you think?





    It is SOOOO VERY comfortable, and I think it looks great, but I am still undecided. I think I just need somebody to tell me that it looks wesome.




    By the way the strap is a custom make from jstraps and I have no affiliation except that I am a happy customer.

    Cool combo, I have seen similar combos on old Omegas and Rolex Explorers with a similar strap but the strap was cracked from age. Looked awesome. Your pics remind me of those watches. I say go with it and it will only look cooler as the strap ages.

    I like it! Tones the watch down and gives it more casual appearance.

    Personally I prefer that kind of strap on a black dial watch! It is not ugly, but it is not a 100% fit.

    I think a white dial watch is better off with black or dark brown leather.

    I really like it!
    The tan strap/white face combo is brilliant...I imagine it looks stunning with a pair of jeans and t-shirt...
    Totally takes that watch in a new direction!

    I like white/cream faced watch with brown or dark brown leather.

    I think it's awesome! Keep it that way. It's a very vintage look but with a modern twist (because the strap doesn't taper).
    It looks good with the watch and as already stated any white/cream dial looks nice on most shades of tan/brown leather.
