    Strap ideas for blue-face Chronos?

    I have a blue face chrono but already too many other watches with bracelets. Having a hard time thinking of what kind of other strap (I.e., not bracelet) might look good on it.

    Anyone have some interesting ideas or inspiration for me? I'm new to the world of blue watches and would really appreciate some help

    Something in a honey brown would look nice IMHO.

    I saw a nice black ostrich leg with rally holes and blue stitching. Was looking for it but couldn't find it again. Will post if I do.

    I was thinking British tan. Medium blue works well with the light brown/darker yellow range.

    Or maybe go blue on blue, altho this doesn't always work. Worn & Wound cordovan, in oceano.

    Or if you want to go with a more wintry, cool, they have a Horween Coal. Medium gray ties in with the blue.

    Thanks for the suggestions. The honey brown seems like it might work. Would whisky cordovan qualify, in your opinions? I haven't seen in it person. I like cordovan so also have considered horweens blue cordovan, but actually now have been think blue croc might be very interesting. please keep suggestions coming.

    Not exactly the same context, but this is a custom honey tan ostrich I had made for my very first "precious" watch (back in 1994 that is)
    Blue dialed chrono at least :)

    A Gunny Deep Blue might work well I think.

    Although not a Chrono, but is a blue dial, and like yours, it came on bracelet, which I quickly changed to this. It's the first time I am as excited about the strap as I am with the watch :)

    Its a Horween Chestnut leather.
