    Please recommend a strap for my Edox Les Vauberts

    I'd like to dress it down a bit, but not so much that it doesn't look at home on the watch. Because everything on the dial is black, I'm guessing I should stick with black. I found one that I like, but I'm concerned that once on the watch it will not look at home, so to speak. Here's the watch, strap will follow as soon as I get a photo. It has 22mm lugs. Thanks for any input! Here's a link to the strap. The same one is available in Buffalo. I'm not familiar with the brands, and would be more comfortable with one I know, or that comes with WUS recommendations. One requirement is that the loop that forms the channel for the spring bar is stitched, not only glued or heat bonded. I had a glued one come apart with catastrophic results for the watch.

    I like this one too, but I think it might be too casual:

    I ordered an ostrich in 22mm, but one side was 20mm and the other was 21mm. Not good. Back it went.

    Here's a link:

    Habitue - 22mm Black Calf - 22mm Straps - Width - Crown and Buckle

    Simple enough to go with anything, in my opinion.

    What you ordered should look fine, I might have suggested that ablack strap with natural coloured stitching would help to dress itdown a bitwithout making it too casual. I have a few interesting black options, including shell cordovan, that would suit the watch nicely.

    Update with pics when it comes in.

    That is a nice Edox. I have been looking into this brand recently. My experience tells me that it is actually very difficult to find a black strap with any "depth". Most of them tend to look pretty flat due to lack of any contrast and the color hides any grain. Lizard or Alligator tend to help that fact (like the one currently on the watch).

    I'd like to suggest you look into a brown strap with some nice natural variation. I think that would dress the watch down and still hold some interest and look classy. I rather like this one. It came from Paul at PAC Straps ... it is his bison leather. I found him to be very reasonable for a custom strap maker (and your watch deserves something a little nicer than average).

    That's a nice looking strap. If the black one I ordered doesn't do it for me I'll look into it. My initial thought was brown, but I thought black would go better since all markings and hands are black. I was on the fence about the watch when it arrived, but it's grown on me.
