    New Shoes for My MO

    I recently picked up a Marine Original that came with the Stowa brown strap and the Milanese bracelet. I wanted some added variety and was not really enjoying the brown strap as it was slightly too long for me. I picked up a navy Hirsch Duke strap and like it quite a bit. It is a little dark and unfortunately looks pretty close to black, especially in the pics. Here are some pics:

    Please feel free to tell me what you think and if there are other strap suggestions that might look good.

    They are all nice but the Mesh Rocks. I am going to have to get one for my MO LE. Very cool, thanks for posting the pics.

    Thanks inlanding and scm64, I also really like the mesh bracelet, even though it is a bit of a hair puller. I love that this watch seems to easily pair up with a variety of straps. If anyone has any other strap suggestions or pics, please share them.

    Hi Len!

    Those are all great looking options. As you have found out & as others have said, the Marine line of Stowas look great with a WIDE variety of straps.

    Here's my Marine auto with the light brown Stowa strap:



    Standard black leather with contrasting stitching (a little dark):



    Dark navy blue Genesis II strap from lonestarwatches (great strap!):




    Looks like you already have most of the bases covered with your selections. Enjoy!

    Dave, thanks for posting those great pics of your Marine Auto on the various straps. I really like the blue stitching on that Genesis II and how it ties in with the blued hands.

    The Genesis II is one of the nicest straps I've had the pleasure to wear and yes, it goes with the Marine like it was made for it.

    Good luck!

    Hary, I think you made a good decision to order the mesh for your MO LE. It may not be the most traditional combination, but it looks great and offers some nice variety. Congrats on your choice and please post some pics when it arrives.
