    Best Strap Color for Blue Dial?

    I just bought a vintage Seiko (1970s?) from an antique shop. It's a day/date with a navy blue dial and silver indices. It came with a dark brown leather strap. In my opinion, the brown does not go well with the dial .... neither does black with red stitching. Any suggestions? Photos would be awesome. Thanks!

    Brown or tan--the shade depends on the shade of blue.
    TAG Heuer Monaco LE|Omega Speedmaster|Seamaster 300MC|Rolex Submariner|Tudor Ranger

    How did it get so late so soon?

    I have 3 blue dial watches with straps as follows:

    Black alligator (very classy thin dress watch)
    Dark blue alligator (Tag Monaco)
    Blue rubber (surf/dive style watch)

    I think the Tag would look good with a brown strap, but I am sure the other 2 wouldn't. So it depends on the style of the watch as well as the dial color. Why not post a shot of yours?

    Black with white stitching? or Blue with white stitching? (so long as you can match up the right shade of blue)

    I've been thinking about a strap for my SARB045 but have not done it yet as the OEM bracelet is well matched to the case. When I do though, I think I'd go for a black shark with blue stitching.
