    Which strap do you think looks better?

    I have three Alpina Startimers that came on a tan fabric strap of not very good quality. I've replaced them with various straps, including a Hirsch Liberty on one. For my Alpina Startimer Pilot Camouflage Chronograph AL372MLY4FBS6, I swapped out the tan strap for a black strap with beige stitching. I'm waiting on a black PVD buckle for the black strap so I put the tan strap back on. Here are pictures of both straps. Which do you think looks better?

    Between those pics I like the tan one better. However, I know with me, straps that are too close to my skin tone never look as good on the wrist. You may want to include some wrist shots if the tan strap is at all close to your skin tone so we can give a better opinion.

    I’d go tan too. How about just plain black leather? Or maybe a black metal mesh bracelet!

    I like both. The black is a bit more versatile though.

    I've tried two more straps on this watch. At least I can change up the look periodically. Thanks for all the replies.
