    Strap suggestion for Vulcain blue panda?

    Hi, folks. I got a blue panda just like this one, except the strap is horrible:
    https://www.fratellowatches.com/tbt-...a-chronograph/

    I actually like the Hamilton strap pictured there (know what ref it is?).

    Looking for other ideas or suggestions. I like the brown. Would maybe some blue threading be cool or too much?
    Also want to get a deployant clasp with it.

    What do you think?

    Hard to tell from the image whether the dial is a strong blue or faded.

    How about a Hirsch French in Blue, see link

    I'd consider Barton sailcloth. Any blue, also white would seem to fit here.

    Brown leather and blue dials do very well together. I agree the one in the review does this watch justice. As far as leather straps go, personally I wouldn't go with blue anywhere on the strap, including the thread, but that's just me. Outside of leather I think a linen perlon strap might work as it fits the period.
