    Blue Strap Recommendations for GS Snowflake

    Hi,

    I'm hoping to pick up a Grand Seiko Snowflake soon, and am looking for some recommendations for blue leather straps that will look great with this watch, especially if they're horween leather.

    I'm also looking for some nice deployant clasps for it.

    Please post pics, links etc. I live in Canada, so any places here would be best if possible.

    For reference, I'm talking about this watch:

    I bought a Camille Fourcet leather croc dark blue strap for my snowflake. The color looks great but I haven’t installed it yet. Expensive but the quality is amazing.

    I suggest a custom from Nick at Catalyst Leatherwork. Here is a post from another forum where he shows two different blue straps he made. His work is among the best I have found, he is extremely responsive, and his prices are fair. You can customize stitching color/style, leather, etc. Check out the thread on his work here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f222/c...4742895-9.html

    I have enough Tochigi for maybe 2-3 more straps tho. After that, i dont know. Paying the current price of $32/sqft for cow leather is kind of crazy though. Its not any better imo, just harder to get here in the U.S. I have several other blues in the pipeline. I have a blue Dollaro Im currently working on and planning to pick up more Pueblo colors including navy blue.

    Decisions, decisions...
