    I need help choosing a strap

    I need help choosing a strap for my Swiss Army watch. Currently the watch does not get a lot of wrist time but I feel like that's because it looks a little too dressy for casual wear. I'm looking for a new strap that will make a little more casual and ready for daily wear. I'm thinking something like a dark brown leather or maybe some type of black with red accent. Looking for options and suggestions. Thanks.

    Perhaps something in red and black from the Hirsch Performance Collection? Here's a link with a few examples shown. It's kind of a sporty watch, so these straps might look pretty good.

    You ever thought about a ZULU? that would deviate from dressy and make it more sporty tactical? I know it's not leather with the red, but it's a very cheap option to play with.

    Nato is an obvious option, but for a sporty, leather strap, I like to start with the look of a Hirsch Liberty. Lots of folks make similar straps, but you can find plenty of pictures of the Liberty. It seems to have a nice warm look to the browns and the perfect size three for the contrast stitch. Any of the standard colors will look good on that watch.

    I, liking the style of the brown Hirsch Liberty. I also like this one but don't think it will give he the casual look I am after. Would it still dress it down a bit and give it a sporty look with the red stitching? Or is the leather too formally finished? It would keep with the all black theme of the watch. I am thinking of picking up a Citizen Nighthawk and butting that on a brown strap, so that could be my black and brown watch.

    For casual wear why not a nato strap? Gives you more flexibility and gives it a less dressier look

    I just ordered a black sailcloth with red stitch from Bradystraps.com. I think that strap would look stellar on your watch.

    Re: I need help choosing a strap

    Love me a Perlon strap, particularly a vintage or German made Eulit. The less fine weave is more wearable to me but i appreciate both. I love the ability to loosen/tighten in small increments. I also like that there isn't much extra strap past the buckle.
