It's trial and error isn't it. The blue and orange hybrid looks great, as does the blue tropic, and no doubt the bracelet does as well. It's then a matter of trying straps until you find the one. I suspect a plain blue hybrid would go well. I presume the CW blue straps are the same tone as the watch, which may not be the case with all blue straps. I doubt you would want the strap to draw attention away from the watch itself, which may be the issue with the orange Tiber. Maybe a brown Tiber would work well.

I gave it a go and wasn’t entirely convinced. I’d quite like to try it on a tide strap though.

Who needs a Power Reserve indicator? Gorgeous.

Nice macro photos there. Dare I say that it looks almost black, not blue, in them and looks far better as black/orange rather than blue?

Good observation. Makes me wonder how a black/red combo would look. The blue/orange has never appealed to me.

Actually, they could have done 105 in each of blue/orange and black/red. I doubt that would have made the production any harder.

^^^ I would like to see how the Concept would look in black/red. That scheme appeals to me more than the blue/orange. Not that I dislike either color pairing. Perhaps not distinctive enough to distinguish the Concept from the Abyss?

The prototype models (if they exist) would be a fascinating future sale inclusion
