    Does this strap look good with my black bay?

    I love this strap and want it to work but I think the orange stitching might be clashing with the bronze on the dial. I know things don't always have to match, just want opinions.

    Umm...I don't really like it to be honest. Yeah it's too orange, white stitching may work however. But personally I'd stick to leather. Great watch by the way, it's my grail.

    It looks okay, if you are going for a strap you can use for water resistant activities like swimming and such it would be a great rubber alternative. Assuming the skin facing side isn't leather anyway.

    Thanks for the honest opinions. I'm leaning towards going a solid color NATO. Just hate changing straps on this watch. Taking the bracelet off was interesting. I love the watch too. I think this one won't ever be traded unless I can get a good trade on a sub or explorer1.

    Looks fine to me. You could do better but no problem for a mix up.

    Not bad. Better looking in your pictures than I thought it would be when I read your post.

    I am personally not a fan. I dont think the orange ties in with the watch and overall think it looks a bit cheap for such a stunning peice.

    Solid NATOs would be my choice too ! So many options and easy strap changes

    It's not bad, but not ideal in my opinion. The Black Bay has a vintage vibe about it while the strap is much more modern and technical looking. I'd try a solid black NATO or a brown vintage leather strap (and I have for mine!).
