    Quality Leather Racing/Driving/Rally Straps

    I'm looking for something to wear at work in summer with this watch:

    It's not an automotive-style watch, but I think a black leather strap with holes in the racing/driving style would ventilate better in hot humid weather. And it visually balances out the large watch (42mm x 11.4mm case, 22mm lugs).
    Both the leather material and the styling should look good enough for a professional setting.
    Here's my shortlist. Visually and quality-wise, what would you put on this watch?


    Top quality:
    1. Lugs.com RACING DEEP BLACK Barenia leather:

    Might look at Rios and Fluco for a couple of other suggestions.

    I really like the Fluco shell cordovan rally strap too, but they don't make it in 22mm.

    Have you considered a dark navy blue? that should look wonderful with those blued hands...
    I have bought from watchgekko on several occasions and am very pleased with their service as well as the quality of the straps.

    The watch came with a dark blue crocodile strap, so I'l looking at other colors for the second strap.

    Have a few B&R that I'm quite satisfied with. Their racing straps seem particularly well made. Purely out of personal preference, I wish they were a bit thinner.
