    Recommendation for grey faced dressy watch?

    Hi everyone, i recently got a very nice louis erard 1931 with 7001 movement, it's a very nice watch. The seller even sent it with the original grey strap:

    And with a beatiful brown ostrich strap:

    The problem i have is that i positively dislike croco style or embossed leather... Do you have any recommendations? It's a very nice watch and I'm afraid that i might get something too plain or too informal for it...
    thanks!!

    I've been bookmarking this beautiful dark grey horween leather strap made by choicecuts on Etsy for a while now. I don't know why I haven't bought this one already. I think it would look great with your watch.

    thanks so much! Great taste. I had seen something very similar and i lo ve.
    But wouldn't it be too informal to wear under a shirt and go to work?

    Something in Horween or shell cordovan perhaps?

    Sure, thanks for the suggestion. But which color gesides the obvious dark grey would you suggest?
