    Junghans Max Bill Bauhaus 100 Jahre strap

    Well, I predicted that the very light gray Max Bill 100 Jahre strap would get dirty very quickly. Here is the proof:

    ... after one month

    I can't deal with the dirt especially since the watch strap is supposed to be a light gray to match the Bauhaus building, so I set out to fix Junghans' design flaw. Here is my solution...

    the new rubber strap is clunkier than the leather, but will at least keep the original color. What do you think?

    You probably should have gone with the grey NATO strap...

    I'm only kidding. That strap is exquisite!

    I like how ir looks on your new rubber strap, but i think they don't match well. For this Junghans i would look a leather or suede strap

    Gray NATO was definitely an option... I may try it still.

    Victorv, I would prefer leather as well, but if the strap looks like this after a month...

    I felt like I had no choice but to look for an alternative.

    I agree, unless you are totally going to baby the watch a light grey suede is not gonna work. However, you should be able to find a more robust grey leather strap that wouldn’t stain. The rubber you found looks alright though
