    Confused Tudor Pelagos Blue Strap Suggestions

    Hello~ This is my first post although I've been a long time lurker on this forum. I recently acquired a brand new Tudor Pelagos Blue and need some strap suggestions. I usually prefer to wear my watches on straps rather than metal bracelets and the rubber strap that came with the watch makes the whole seem to much "blue." I've been in the market searching for strap options but I have a hard time deciding which strap will look good on this watch. Given that the Tudor Pelagos is a more modern take on dive watch, it seems like the old distressed look may not suite the watch very well. I'm also looking for a strap that is more versatile to match with outfits although the blue dial on this watch is already hard to work with. I'm wondering if there are any of you that can give me some suggestions to specific types of leather and color that will make the watch look better. I'm open to suggestions and it would be even better if url links are provided. Thanks.

    I imagine it would look terrific with a dark brown leather strap that has a bit of glossy look, like this dark brown chromexcel.


    Lighter shade brown should be okay too, take a look at this Fossil.


    It would be great if someone can do a photoshop to combine such straps with a real photo of the Pelagos.

    There are tons of custom strapmakers who are more than happy to made one for you.

    This has alot (some the same) pictures with different looks for ideas. Usually see it on a bracelet. I like the brown leather nato version myself.

    Spend enough and get a good quality strap for a watch that nice, IMHO.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Do any of you think that a grey strap would work well with the blue dial?

    I have the blue pelagos too and while I love natos on my divers normally, the original pelagos titanium bracelet is just perfect for me (looks great and light). But yes I do think a smoke grey strap would look great on the pelagos. Looking forward to pics of whatever you end up with.

    Not bad Shang, I would look for a strap with a little light/more orange/brown color to it though. Think it would work well and pop quite nicely with the bright watch face. Something like this might look really nice if you want something dressy for it: Hirsch RIVETTA Calf Leather Watch Strap in GOLD BROWN | HirschStraps

    While playing around on Photoshop, I thought to myself maybe straps similar to the Tudor North Flag just might work with the watch. Here is what I had in mind:

    Granted that these straps can only be custom made, what are your opinions?
    BTW thanks for all the kind suggestions.

    Not bad at all! I actually like the contrast of the dark brown strap with the bright blue dial. Masculine and classy. I like it better than the grey actually.
