    I'm thinking maybe blue stingray leather or possibly mesh? What do you guys thing might look good? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Personally, I love Barton Bands and I love their ad with their straps on this very wat h. I think it looks slick on their elite silicone.

    Also, can't go wrong with a good Hirsch!

    I know the proportions of that watch. It needs something thick and heavy.

    Stingray would be pretty neat, though I don't think you can really beat genuine alligator.

    I have a Barton silicone strap in blue that I wear with my Orient Ray. The color's not bad however, I think it looks too casual on the Bulova.

    It must be Bulova day. I just got my new Precisionist 96B260 today. Mine came on a bracelet but I'm thinking this would look good on a variety of straps, as well. Slow evening at work so I brought my link remover and sized it already. Let's keep the strap suggestions coming. Anyone have either of these models on something not stock to show? Because we all love pics:

    I was thinking about getting that same model as a dress watch. Might just have to now. Good choice, cubdog.

    I vote blue stingray.

    It's still quite an exotic and unusual leather choice!

    Mmm, probably not a deal of help to you as I’d put that watch on black leather. Mind you, if my SARB065 experience has taught me anything there’s leather and leather.

    My precisionist came on a stainless bracelet. The watch in total is nearly as heavy as my car, but it looks great, and I love heavy watches.

    True and as is often the case the black leather that came with the watch is nothing to get excited about. I'm not ruling anything out at this point.
