    Please help me find a watch for this strap

    I have this crown and buckle brown strap that i love. It's been on a green seagull military watch which i just don't wear often enough. When I look for pics of brown straps, most of them are on black watches, which just doesn't do it for me. Anybody have a similar strap that looks good on a non black watch? I want to give the strap a lot more time. Thanks.

    Giving a lug width for the C&B strap you have would be helpful in narrowing down which other watches might pair properly with it. That being said, in my experience I find that watches with a dominant blue color work very well with brown straps. For example I wear my Seiko SNZH53 almost exclusively on a dark brown or tan strap.

    Anything with a cream dial, a blue dial, a white dial, etc.

    The possibilities are endless with a strap color that versatile, IMHO.

    Thanks for the tips. Incidentally the width is 24, but i'd be willing to get another strap like that with a different width if there's a great watch for it.

    I'm looking for a simple clean dial, automatic, not Seiko and under $400.

    I have not checked the price or the lug width of the following, but the STYLE of these watches would seem to pair well with your strap

    - Steinhart Nav B in bronze
    - Armida or Helson in bronze w green or blue dial
    - Undone chrono w cream dial and blue hands
