C60 Sapphire Black strap options

Post by Retroman »

Hi all,

I have a Sapphire Black incoming (pics to follow!), can’t wait. It’s my second CW, after my well-worn C65 I bought on the forum a couple of years ago.

I hear that good strap options for the Sapphire Black are hard to come by, and many just don’t look right. It’s coming on the rubber (I couldn’t stretch to the bracelet) - any other suggestions? Pics welcome!

Cheers :D

I would have thought the standard black and red hybrid would look good, as pictured in the archives.

Search for sapphire black in the archives.

CW cordovan leather is my favourite, but I wouldn't be sure without trying it, and it's almost as expensive as the bracelet anyway.

Check out Barton straps, their elite silicone are really comfy and some of their color options would look great on the sapphire black. Maybe the black, or the red, or the gray or white.

I received one of these yesterday…finally. I was surprised to find the dial doesn’t look smoked or dark at all—it looks completely transparent. Consequently, it’s a very neutral watch you can pair with just about anything I think.
