    Strap recommendation for gold dial watch

    Recently picked up this Ball Trainmaster Legend with gold dial.

    The bracelet is nice, but I do tend to favor leather straps on the more dress style of watches.
    Wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on what might compliment this one.

    Do not want
    - Brown leather at all. (Don't wear enough brown to justify.)
    - Black leather with yellow stitching. (Zzzzzzzzzzzz)
    - Yellow leather (just would seem nearly impossible to find a good color match.)

    As I look online, thought getting a collective of suggestions would help me in my search.
    Thanks!
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    Black will look best.

    I've seen a lot of vintage gold watches on black strap, definitely better than other colors.

    Maybe it would help to know the end goal - would you like to keep it on the dressier side, or are you looking to “casual it up”?

    I'm fine either way.
    Little of column A, little of column B?

    Re: Strap recommendation for gold dial watch

    When I see pics of your watch I think two things:

    1. It's got a 70's kind of vibe (not a bad thing)
    2. I think the gold dial is the focal point


    So that said, just some of my thoughts:

    1. Something minimal and for whatever reason reminds of a 70's jazz club - a Di-Modell Elegance Black (pic from Holben's):

    2. Something on the dressier side, but still reminds me of the 70's - a DeBeer Teju Lizard Grain (pic also from Holben's):

    3. But I think I'd really like to see it on this Ostrich Leg Leather from Geckota:

    Thanks gmads.
    I like that first one the most.

    Here's a wristshot from earlier today just because we all love pics.

    I would personally go grey, matches the case and compliments the dail, here's a Hirsch Osiris in Nubuck
