    suggestions for this...

    OK, so this is sitting in Customs right now, so hopefully it'll arrive inside of a week:




    IF I don't like the Seiko bracelet...which is fairly likely, because most bracelets are problematic for me...what kind of strap do y'all think might work, given the white/gray motif and the textured dial? NOTE: I'd prefer to avoid blacks, blues, and grays for this one; I've already got that combo covered. Both material and color are open for discussion, but not too exotic on the material. Croc, shell cordovan sure...toad, ray and the like, not so much.

    Well I bet a nice tan strap would work. For something dressy you could go with this: Hirsch RIVETTA Calf Leather Watch Strap in GOLD BROWN | HirschStraps

    Or maybe something a little more "different" that has a vintage look something like this one would definitely stand out from the crowd: Colareb.it.20mm VENEZIA green strap

    Given the sleek lines of the case, I would go with a cordovan strap in natural or whiskey tan with a full stitch in white to match the chapter ring.

    Well this one is an alligator strap but I think a leather version of this would pair nicely.

    I think it's 20mm lugs, but might be 19. IIRC the case size is 38.

    White/blue stripe. That's one I'd not considered. Might look for it in RAF.
    The Colareb is interesting. Another one of theirs drawing my attention:

    Shell cordovan or something in Horween would give it a nice finished look, IMHO.

    I would say a grey nato but since it's ruled out perhaps a cream/beige nato, itll make the dial pop more and the metal will compliment the light strap colour

    I always like dark brown to compliment the light colored dials. Depending on budget, Panatime has some nice ones...

    Went with 2...if you're gonna order international, and they're not overly expensive, hey why get one?

    The Colareb Amalfi cream-color, pic'd above, and this ostrich from them:




    Almost went with a W&W single pass cordovan in whiskey, which is gorgeous...but it's a full 10" long, and I've got a small wrist. Yeah, I could trim off some excess, but trimming THAT much gets you too much into the holes.
