    Best strap combo for Stowa Marine Automatic?

    Im about to order my first Stowa, the marine automatic. But im struggling to know wich strap combination i should order. I do know that i will go for one of the croc straps, but cant really decide wich one. I kinda like the light brown croco strap, but i dont know..... what do you guys think?

    Heres a overview:

    Marine automatic white with date, polished case - STOWA GmbH & Co.KG

    as far as croc straps go, if i had to pick, id prob choose the dark brown. i think it fits so damn nice. but then again id rather just get a leather strap but this is good

    Matter of taste. All do fit. I'd go for the dark brown croco strap.
    Kind regards

    Yes you can't go wrong with dark brown, as it goes well with both casual and dress attire. If you want something more for sport leather is also popular, and I am a big fan of the metal band. It's all a matter of personal preference, you can't go wrong.

    I have the MO whith the Millanese and the leather in brown with light stictching. I think it looks great with both combos.

    For Christmas my wife got me two Toshi straps Toshi Straps! Handmade leather watch straps - home page one in concor with natural stitching the other in chocolate with matching stitching. The Toshi straps are very thick and make a much more casual look perhaps more "military".

    As you can guess I like to switch things up a bit, and the watch goes very nice from dressy to casual.

    Why not get a dark Croco for dress attire and a light brown leather for more a more casual look. The leather straps are inexpensive at 20 euros
