    Strap suggestions for a dark blue watch



    I am looking for suggestions for a leather strap for my Zelos Horizons GMT with the Aventurine (dark blue with stars) dial. It has a 20mm lug width.

    I used the available bracelet for a while, but it didnít really do it for me.

    I am wearing it more like a dress watch than a diver, so I want something thin to fit easily under my shirt cuffs.

    Itís a great watch so I want a strap that really makes it pop.

    Strap suggestions for a dark blue watch

    Got this from Watch Gecko - blue leather upper with blue stitching. Black rubber edge and liner. Only had it for a week but so far so good. Sturdy but supple.

    To pop I would go tan leather. Crown and buckle or bandrbands. Or you can always go custom.

    That’s a nice one! I would at least try a beads of rice bracelet. Goes great with a blue vintage diver.

    +1. Something tan with white contrast stitching should bring up the "dress" factor while still keeping it connected to a sport feel. If you do a polished leather strap, croc/alligator or something similar it will look disjointed.

    I have my aventurine on a navy blue Epsom leather from Nomad Watch Works.

    I sometimes dress it down with a NATO from Moose Strap (I think).

    I'll be interested in your bracelet if it doesn't cut it for you!

    I was thinking lighter still...sand and beige. Suede for dressier, canvas for casual. Barton has some good colors for this. Dark blue canvas would be fine too.

    I like that strap and the NATO a lot. Might have to add the NATO to list of things to pick up.

    Happy to sell you the bracelet, Iíll grab pics when I get home if it. I think itís in decent shape, only wore it about a month.

    Thatís pretty cool, think I might try a navy leather after a brown one.
