This question is related to the recent thread on summer straps for the Antea KS, but I didn’t want to hijack the discussion by posting it there.
A number of members have posted pictures of the Antea with the mesh bracelet. On the Stowa site this bracelet is available with either a polished or matte finish, and I was wondering which option people chose.
The fact that the case of the Antea is polished would suggest that the polished bracelet would match well. However, I’m concerned that it would suddenly make a watch that I love for its understated elegance appear, well, very “shiny.” The matte would mitigate this (possible) problem, but might not suit the case.
My apologies if this question is rudimentary, but I have not had a great deal of experience in matching watches to straps and bracelets.
