    Shoe shopping - which option is best?!

    Just picked up my new-to-me 1815 up/down. Man I love it. Iíve wanted one for a while but wasnít expecting to pick one up quite yet, but then a good option popped up and I had to take it. Itís my first non-white-metal watch ever and Iím surprised at how much it has resonated with me.

    However, Iím not 100% sure about the stock strap and thought Iíd try a few others out. Iím inclined to go for the lightest of the ones in my arsenal, as it brings out the blue of the hands well, but would love to know anyone elseís thoughts.

    Thanks in advance!

    Definitely mix and match based on mood, etc. I do that with my Lange's too.

    Of the four in your pic, I like the current strap best, but of course you have to go with what you love! Is your watch rose gold or yellow gold?

    Youíre right of course, but I canít help but play with combinations!

    Itís a rose gold watch. Iíve seen rose gold 1815ís on A Collected Man before with the light colour leather and it looks great. Much more casual but in a good way. Iíll give it a try and report back!

    I appreciate the effort -- gotta play around and have some fun with these things! I had a burgundy strap made last year for a yellow gold Lange that I really love and that I think would look nice on rose. Maybe that's why I'm partial to your darker strap.

    I change out the straps on most of my watches for something more unique, but my vote is also for the stock strap in your case. Looks great.

    Nice options but I like the one on the watch.

    I don't know many people in the watch community, but those I do know seem to agree that rose gold Langes tend to work best on their original factory strap. I've been searching for an alternative to the factory reddish-brown strap for my rose gold Saxonia Thin, but haven't yet found anything that works better (at least to my eyes).

    I do, however, like the burgundy strap CFR showed up-thread. I've been giving some thought to having something made custom and have begun exploring options.

    On another forum, someone went through a painstaking effort to put together a huge mockup of different straps. You can view their work here. It might give you some ideas!
