    What colour strap?

    I've been wearing this with the rubber strap that came with it for the last two months because i'm not sure what colour leather strap to get for it. So i'm asking for your help with some suggestions. Thanks all.

    A black croc, matte finish no stitching would be nice, but you might also look at some brown ones as well. Rose gold is tougher to match than gold or SS, IMHO.

    The rubber strap is curved lugs from the picture, so you will have some space between the case and lugs unless you find a curved end leather strap, if that is important to you.

    Brown alligator with some red stitching would be nice to compliment the hands.

    A reddish brown would look good with the rose gold and black dial. Search under 'cognac' and 'chestnut'. I prefer a white/ivory contrast stitch for sport watches with white on the dial as this one has.

    It would look something like this...

    ...but even better with rose gold.

    Matching rear view mirror is optional.

    Di-Modell makes a carbon-look waterproof leather in black with white stitch that might look good with that dial. The liner (back side) is perforated and very comfortable (my favorite summer strap).
