    Suggestions on a strap for this new-to-me Muhle

    Hi All-

    I have this coming in the mail. It's coming on a leather strap. I'll probably get a nice deep blue alligator or something to bring out the blue hands. But in the summer, I'd like to have something more moisture and sweat resistant. I'm not a one-piece or NATO guy. Does anyone have a suggestion for something that will maintain the vintage look but be moisture resistant?

    Thanks.

    I had the same issue with the roman numeral version of this watch, was thinking of a perforated leather strap:

    Hirsch Mariner could work; it should be water resistant: https://www.hirschstraps.com/collections/mariner

    You could always have a strap made from whatever material on the outside and waterproof (water resistant) leather on the inside closest to your wrist.

    That's pretty!
    Have you considered a (polished in your case, I'd say) Milanese mesh bracelet? I find MM bracelets to be extremely comfortable and the one I have sizes perfectly.

    All great recommendations! I particularly like the look of the sailcloth...
