    Marine Original Blue LE Fashion Show

    Finally got around to pulling the original croc strap on the Marine Original Blue (first efforts found it very tight and quit while I was ahead, with intention to revisit.) Had a number of straps I wanted to experiment with so here goes...

    If any of the fittings look odd it's because the straps are just inserted passively for easy switching from shot to shot. Haven't settled on which is getting the next wear but I like each of them for different purposes. I really like the RIOS straps and the extra presence they bring while offering a more casual appearance, and the C. Ward for the bold blue dress appeal (made nicer but the fit of the curved lugs.) What this shows is that the M.O. Blue can dress up or down quite well.

    The Rios and the CW straps are the winners for me, but they all look great!

    Yes, the RIOS are both really nice. Ended up with the Chestnut. But the Stone also kills. They are untapered 22mm which along with the padding pumps up the watch.

    Like the Rios and the C&B with the blue stitching.

    All of them look nice, so no wrong choice, IMHO.

    I think all of them work well with that beautiful watch.

    Just noticed this new blue strap from Worn & Wound...

    Wondering how this would look on the MOBILE. That said I think these taper to 18mm which I don't like, too narrow/too much of a reduction for my tastes.
