    Have you ever bought a watch to go with a specific strap?

    Rather than the more usual vice-versa.

    No. I’m lucky enough to have some quite lovely straps but I always let the dog wag the tail, as it were.

    No. But maybe about to. . .
    Lucky enough to receive several straps from Simona Distefano this morning. (Only dispatched from Italy Friday tea time, Royal Mail take note. Amazing 7 hours from Cologne to my front door)
    Very, very pleased with them as they are a significant step above any straps that I have bought previously.
    However sorry to say that none quite click with their intended watch recipients in the flesh. Hence I feel an imminent reverse quest arising.

    You could consider another alternative that would not only save you a shedload of money but actually generate some for you, you could offer the new straps on SC!

    No, but I've nearly bought watches because I liked their straps on a couple of occasions!

    You can't mention that and not provide pics of the strap!

    Whilst I appreciate your logical advice. I'm afraid that, when it comes to watches at least, all sense is abandoned for me.

    The 5 new straps, and a couple of the watches that they were loosely intended for:

    I bought a correct NSA bracelet ready to fit to a Heuer Silverstone (Bordeaux) but they shot up in value before I had a chance to buy one! Naturally I live in hope.
