    Question What strap to go with this watch?

    I'm waiting on my MM GMT with Blue dial and I am thinking of a new strap to put on there. I was hoping to get some of your ideas on it.
    Not the greatest picture, but you get the idea.
    Cheers,

    Hirsch Carbon maybe



    Hirsch Mobile, not convinced this is dark enough though...



    Hirsch Aviator for something very different.....



    as you can see all straps carry on the blue theme of the dial !!

    Thanks! I like the unique style of the Aviator, but I really don't want to try and match the dial. I was thinking more of a brown or lighter color maybe?
    Any other opinions guys?

    I don't think aviator style strap works with this watch case. It is a Panerai style watch case. Panerai style straps (4mm+ thickness) fits this case well.

    Sharkskin makes it more sporty





    if you want to dress up a blue dial, try natural python


    if you just want a beater strap, then veg. tanned calf, it ages over time.

    I would suggest you to take Matt Genuine Python Snake, since it comes with a special cut pattern and Matt Python has a very very raw hand feel, I believe it could gives a best matching to your watch.
    You can try to check with this website www.inspire-workshop.com
    you can find a lot of very special materials from them and I am sure you could find your right partner there. Good Luck..............StrapBoy

    Here's a better picture of the watch since it has arrived. I want something that is more casual than dressy.
    Maybe something in a satin/flat black with slate colored stitching?
    Your thoughts?

    That one is different! I have no idea why that one's called an "Aviator." It looks like it has nothing to do with aviator-style watches.
