    Thanks. Yes I did, I do quite like the bracelet but fancied a change.

    Old Casio with khaki-green natostrap, for outside dirt jobs...

    Not my watch, but loving this watch strap on a cheap Vostok
    Has a Tudor vibe about it, the watch no one loves.

    I just had this hornback with gold stitching made for my Linde Werdelin Moon Tattoo. I'm rather pleased with it.

    New blue Barton rubber strap for the BB58 Blue, very soft and comfy, no smell. What's not to like for £20?!

    New Joseph Bonnie tropic strap for the Seiko, looks fab with the watch and is super soft and comfortable. A big step up from the supplied waffle straps (which are actually pretty good but too long for my wrist)

    Had the blue and olive Bonnie tropics on my Baltics and the are indeed superb quality and comfortable. Expensive, but well worth the price!

    Had my Damasko DSub3 on Barton Elite straps for the last few weeks - and they are very good except for one thing: colour density. It's one thing that lets most silicone straps down - a translucent, washed-out quality to colours other than black - because pigment is expensive...

    The £12 smartwatch strap below absolutely monsters it - it is not quite as vividly lurid as my third rate camera skills make it look, but it is as good as any expensive natural rubber strap and no pungent reek of fake-vanilla. It also has the clever and convenient spring-loaded clips for the springbars which means you could even use it with fixed bars if desired.

    For those not smitten with ORANGE! as a colour, there's 8 others to choose from, mostly more restrained, but all limited to 22mm lug width: Amazon Link

    Wondering whether thereís a 20mm option out there for my CWC sbs? I canít really work out how the strap fits to the bars - but these seem like a clever solution for fixed bar watches

    Not that exact design, but this from the same source is close.

    There's a spring-loaded tab on the underside of the strap which you pull back to clip the strap to the watch:

    I bought a garmin Fenix strap for a cwc. It fits but the garmin must use a super thick spring bars because it rattled a huge amount.

    took it straight off

    I don't think that you can beat a Perlon Nato for the warmer months.

    DS30 yellow on blue Zuludiver FKM

    Wasn't sure about this but I think it goes and makes it a bit more subtle than the yellow leather I normally wear it on.

    My latest NickMankey hook strap arrived yesterday, I wasn't sure about ordering a solid colour strap for my Tudor BB Bronze but I couldn't be happier and the antique bronze hardware matches the case perfectly.

    That looks the mutt's nuts - well done. I know they're expensive but I've worn my Landmaster on little else since I got one.

    (Sorry for the fluff on the dial!)

    Thankfully it missed Customs so at about £30 all in its in the same price bracket as a GGB velcro but no where near the silly price of one of Erika'$ or a Tudor NATO.

    Isn't it strange how we all see things differently.

    For a thread called "The Perfect Strap-Watch Combination" I look at about 80% of these and hate them.

    Not a criticism, just an observation. My taste is just as good/bad as the next guy's.

    Love variety of opinion and love threads like this. There are several stunners too...IMHO of course.

    I have to agree.... I think that looks fantastic. Is there a name for that colour? Just wondering if it's still available from Pav

    Not sure what the name was, bet he could make another for you.

    With the sun making (eventually) an appearance this morning, I've swapped the Boldr onto an orange Ritche canvass...

    Wasn’t a big fan of the light brown alligator embossed strap that this came on as standard. Made it look way to dressy. Then I tried it on this Everest that I found in the drawer, and bingo (I think, anyway)...

    I think it looks good, I would not have thought about pairing this watch with a rubber but in the metal it looks ace!
