I haven't any leather strap suggestions as I tend to favour NATO's but great watch choice.... :D

I've been considering one of these for my Blumo.

As for leather, I'd go for something like this:http://www.watch-band-center.com/watchstrap-p22372h2049s2052-Watch-strap-20mm-bla.html

Great watch the Sumo. Congrats .

Just curious, did you decide on a strap, or are you happy with the bracelet ?

I ordered this yesterday, about time my Sumo had a new look :

Always wanted one of these but the size and 20mm lug width makes me hesitate. Are they (top) heavy without the bracelet when waering on a rubber, leather or nato strap? Seems like such good value for money, even though they have been increasing in price.

The Sumo wears much smaller than the size would indicate, sort of snugs to your wrist. Not top heavy at all. Still a good weight to it :-)
