    Tips and pics to help decide new colour strap

    Hi,

    I have the Zenith Captain dual time with a black face. The original strap was dark brown and I currently have a black strap. However I want to get a new strap in a better, perhaps more louder, colour.

    Has anyone any reccomendations for coloured straps to match the black face.

    If anyone has a similar combination, I would be grateful to see a picture.

    Many thanks

    Nice watch! It's the same with shirts or suits: any colour (tie) goes with a white shirt and any colour goes with a black suit. In theory, you should have a vast range of options. In practice, the red tip on the 24 hour hand restricts that a little. I would avoid anything that conflicts with or distracts from that. A different shade of red is out, so is pink, purple or related sort-of-red colours. The red is a highlight here so you need something more sober - another highlight would not suit the watch.

    Nice watch, one of my favorite Zenith complications. I would stick with Black Alligator, and if you live in California, buy it quick as they have banned the sale of alligator as of January 1st.

    ??? Purchase/vending only or possession/wearing too?

    I can't see the point as long as it's farmed alligator and certain minimum standards with regards to humane killing are adhered to. It's effectively the same as cattle farming then.....
