    mate at work has a pre maxi case sub and recently had it on a tan leather strap for a few weeks, it looked smart.

    For me personally Nay, but who cares what anyone else thinks, if you like it then wear the hell out of it. Sometimes it's nice to swap watches over to leather for a while even if they do look best on their bracelets, variety is the spice of life and all that.

    it went back on the bracelet before a holiday for ease of wearing on the beach, in the sea etc. and tbh....asking a guy at work for a photo would feel odd! it made it look less tool watch and more vintage-cool in my view.

    Nay, at least on my wrist, unless it's a leather NATO. Something about the bracelet just works without fail and I find everything else just isn't quite as good.

    Looks fine to me. I think both NATOís and vintage leather straps work on pre ceramic Submariners.

    The older ones do look good on leather except I hate them on the new 6 digit references.

    Only leather straps I have, doesn't do it for me but makes a change and each to their own.

    Several bracelet watches look good on leather...

    Nay for me. If you're after a change, I'd go for a nato. Difficult though when it's got the perfect partner in the bracelet.

    Have to say those straps are very nice indeed. Are they Bulang and sons?
