    Need Strap Suggestions for this Symphony

    So, it has really been tough for me to put a strap for this watch. I've never owned a watch with black casing before, so that may be the case. I personally can only see this one with black straps, any other color seems to be way off for me. Again, that might be because i'm still getting use to the black case.

    Even with this strap, what's your opinion about it?

    Recommend a strap for this watch.

    Personally, I think that red strap is a poor match, especially that shade of red. I do like that full-grain look it has, and like your idea of a black strap, so a nice leather with a full rich, textured grain like that. I'd suggest you go with a nice red stitch to give it both a splash of personality, and bring out the little highlight on the dial in the Orient logo.

    Nice watch, regardless.

    It is indeed a very bad combo. I might really need to stay with black straps with just different stitchings. Good thing i've never worn this combo outside of my room. Lol

    I tend to like a little bit of contrast with my combos.

    Here's how brown would look on a similar Orient:

    I'm not an expert of straps at all, but as the above said I think you should stick with black (preferred) or dark brown with the Symphony. The darker the better imo

    Omega AT blue or black (my love of teak dials will be complete with this purchase)

    Yes, black or a dark chocolate brown would work the best for the watch, IMHO.

    Perhaps something with a strong black thread would work:

    I might give that dark brown with black stitching a try.
