Thinking of a strap to fit a sort of high-end dressy watch, - to dress it down. The watch is dark blue- slate grey with SS case, at the moment it's on a dark blue alligator, and I have a second semi-distressed brown leather one.
I have a reason for not posting the watch in question yet, so here's something that has a similar style (minus the complication):
I'm thinking of:
- blue-green tweed
- dark grey tweed
- dark grey suede (?)
- dark blue suede
Any other alternative materials I'm not thinking of?
And on the flip side, if I wanted to go 'dandy', what would fit?
I'm being really attracted to that particular golden honey-brown lizard lately, but for some reason in my mind's eye they fit only with light-coloured dials (white, cream). In this case the problem I think is that the strap cannot be more eye-catching than the watch itself, which to me has already a strong character.
Yes, I believe these can be dressed down very well. At least dressed down compared to my usual style So I'm thinking of something that evokes comfort. Only thing is, I'm really unsure of the durability of tweed and suede.
As to budget, I'm not sure. I wouldn't go for something like Camille Fournet for now, because I want to test first how i like the 'alternative strap material' look with them.
