    I would go with the swamp. I will warn you, I own the grey venezia strap from colareb and it is noticeably lighter in person than in the pictures.

    I like the grey with the silver dial.

    To me, either grey or blue is the place to start for a silver dial. I prefer a clean contrast between my arm and any strap, so if you want one of the brown/earth tone straps, I suggest the one that matches your wrist the least.

    I think you should get both blue and grey! Colareb is an exceptional value brand!

    Thanks. That's really valuable feedback about the grey! Does it darken as you wear it though? Do you have the swamp version too, or you just like the look of it?

    I think I agree but I'm worried it'll be too light now given the post above.

    I do not have the swamp, no, just think the look would be good. The grey darkens a little as you wear. Don't get me wrong, it isn't "light" grey, but it is definitely a lighter shade of medium grey if you get what I am saying. If you are looking for a dark grey, you got the wrong strap. If you don't mind it being on the lighter side of the middle, you will be okay.

    IMHO, the grey one would look terrific and pretty "modern" on this watch. I also adore the brown one. I have a Venitzia Marrone on my Seiko Alpinist and the strap color is fantastic if you prefer the "vintage " touch. As those straps are not that expensive quility wise, I would definately for the grey one plus something moer vintage like the Brown or Swamp.
    One thing sure, you can't go wrong with all of these ;)
