Best colour strap for gold watch

Recommended Posts

For me I would normally prefer to go with light brown to dark brown depending on the dial colour, lighter the dial darker shade of brown strap and vice versa. But have a couple with black straps and they look ok too.

Thinks up to personal taste.

I like alligator strap also, I think @Graham60is right, dial colour makes a difference.



On a completely different tack, I am currently restoring the Bakelite radio depicted in the 1946 advert that the Excalibur with the ostrich strap is sitting on.......

While I’m not generally a fan of black leather straps I do agree that occasion and dial colour do make a difference.

I usually go for a mid to deep brown but did have a gorgeous Hirsch burgundy strap for my Tissot.

And dark brown on my DeVille

I tend to prefer brown/Oxblood on gold and black on stainless but any colour can end up on a watch dependent upon what I have at the time!!

These two are the wrong way around, I don't think it matters too much actually!!

That looks a bit "Mickey Mouse" .:laughing2dw:

Brown, burgundy etc does look better, but not with a black suit. Honestly, who wears brown shoes with a black suit. :sign_wtf:

Wrong, wrong, wrong. :rofl:
