    I like the brown with the black face. What do you all think?

    Also thinking for the mesh strap. I know black is a go to color but I think the Brown and Darker brown make for a versitel watch combo for dressing up and just wearing with jeans.

    Thoughts. Other ideas for straps? I could go white face or even orange but those don't work as well with a suit if I wanted them to. I am a pretty casual guy most the time.

    Either of the straps that you picture look terrific IMO as would a mesh bracelet. The only consideration there is polished VS brushed given the polished watch case and a polished mesh is going to definitely add some bling to it.

    Honestly, I've never seen this watch look bad with any combo! Orange or white....hmmm, maybe but I find the more conservative combos to be better with the black dial version. The blue dial version lends itself to even more casual choices to me.

    I wish I could find some similar straps from an American maker. The top one is from England and expensive the bottom one I have no idea who makes it.

    They both look great. I put light/dark brown on my Armida A7 steel all the time, similar watch with orange minute hand. Thought about mesh for it as well, but in the end I like the factory bracelet. Check out SNPR straps, Joe can make whatever you want and he is here in the U.S. He is making a dark olive Horween for my A7 right now, kind of a waiting list but from what I've read it's worth it.

    Edit: He's a member of the forum as well, great guy to deal with.

    I like the light brown, and think a Hirsch rally would look great:

    Thinking of this one.

    I would also get the mesh. Just because I can. I think I need the mesh in front of me to truly decide if I like it or not.Name:  451445d1341560917-squale-1521-prof-500-inkl-shark-mesh-dsc_0931.jpg

    The darker brown looks really good on that watch to me. Both are very nice.

    The finishing on Squale's polished cases make almost all straps look good.

    I can not find that strap manufacture for the darker one. The lighter one is in England and just way to much money in my opinion.

    The top one is made by Heuerville in England. I have no idea about the darker one on the bottom.
