    Strap suggestion for UX GSG9

    Got mine about a week ago. Aside from the fact that I managed to cut the strap too short and also bent the shoulderless spring bars while messing around with the strap, it has been great.
    The watch has a novel unintended complication: the second hand serves as a device that demonstrates the existence of gravity. See it rebounds as you make it work against G.
    Back to the title of the thread. Any suggestion for a suitable strap? I thinking red silicone but that may be a bit too obvious

    I think the UX is a great functional watch. The visibility is unparalleled and I don't have to worry about water, magnetic fields, mis-hit with golf clubs, microwave etc......
    I now have a Hirsch 'textile' strap with red stitching on order.
    What mesh bracelet are you good people referring to?

    U2 on MESH:


    I love mesh. Here is my Omega f300 from 1973 on the original mesh bracelet:


    I bought the meshbracelet for the U2 from Walt at Lonestarwatches.
    It is 3.2 mm thick. I thought about a 4mm Monstermesh, but thought it would be too thick and clumsy. Also, the wire it is made from is thicker.
    Also, I selected the "polished" surface, looks more eye catching. If I get tired of the "bling", I just sandblast it!
