    Pilot watch straps

    My Zenith Pilot Big Date Special should arrive next month and I already think which strap to order in addition to mesh bracelet.

    I did not like OEM leather because of its yellowish color. The colors of the watch are mostly black and white but sometimes there is blue tint from AR coating.

    So the question is: which leather to get and in which color? What is the classic strap for Pilot watch in general? I suppose alligator will be inappropriate here, so I think of some thick calf. Black or dark brown? Blue maybe? Which stitching, white or blue?

    Pics are warmly welcomed.

    I see more brown pilot straps than black, but IMHO, it is really a matter of personal preference.

    I think a nice chocolate brown with white accent stitching would look very nice on that watch.

    I believe the watch above is an Ingersoll Wells Fargo ... it's a handwind amazingly. A very nice watch indeed.

    Depends on the look you are going for really. I wanted something distressed ... kind of vintage ... in black so I asked Peter Gunny to make mine ...

    Di-modell pilot brown or black would look great on that watch.

    Wow! The mother of all straps!

    I don't know. His works are interesting, but I can order customized strap from Camille Fournet for less money. With all due respect to John, isn't his prices a bit over the top?
