    Please show your Damaskos with aftermarket straps!

    I have a DA38, and though it came with a good strap, I'm not quite feeling the black. So, I'm looking for alternatives.

    I have a Collins on a brown leather that I really like, but the numerals and indices are kind of a sand color (found out it's called gold sand lume) that goes well with the brown. I'm not sure how the brown would go with the white on the Damasko. And I have to admit I haven't swapped anything yet because I'm sort of afraid of scratching something up.

    On the original Damasko strap, I really do like that the leather extends beyond the lugs sideways. I think it makes the lines nice.

    I'm open to NATO's, canvas, or leather. Not really interested in a bracelet.

    So, could you guys share photos of your Damaskos on alternative straps? Or suggest something you think would look good?

    Here's the Damasko:

    I don’t like the black leather either. I swap straps all the time and I’m not careful at all. In fact I pop the spring bars in with my fingers, so the spring bar tip basically rubs the back of the lugs as I put the pressure on it. There isn’t a scratch on it. Stop worrying and start swapping!

    Scratch a Damasko? Easier said than done. Should not be a concern here.

    OK. I'll try the Collins strap on it. The only other 20mm strap I have to try came with the Collins, and it's... black.

    I like the brown leather that came with the DS30, but prefer more of a cognac leather with black stitch. Was going to get a custom strap, but ended up finding one from Sinn.

    Re: Please show your Damaskos with aftermarket straps!

    OK. Here it is. I think I'd need something darker, though. The straps I'm seeing above seem to coordinate with the dial, case, or seconds hand. This one doesn't really do that.

    ... but it's growing on me as it spends a few minutes there. I like that strap on the Collins, so it will go back. The question is, do I purchase one similar to this for the DA38?

    I don't know. I'm not a color wizard. What do you guys think? Good? Bad? Horological faux pas? Is it like a brown belt and black shoes?
