Strap Recommendation for CW C9 Harrison?

Post by woohootony »

Hi all,

First post here. Would like to wish everyone Happy New Years.

I have a 43mm C9 Harrison 5-Day with the white dial and metal band. I'm looking to change straps and is looking for the og brown alligator leather strap with bader buckle but is having no such luck..

Any chance CW will release a brown leather strap with bader buckle in the near future? Only bader buckle on site I see is the Cordovan leather in black or blue.

What are your opinion for brown leather strap to compliment this watch? Thanks!
Tony

I’m away from home currently so I will look when I get back next week. I have a C9 Harrison GMT that came with both a black strap, and a brown strap, but I think the brown is not a CW. I will share pics when I can.

Personally I would get a CW black cordovan. Fantastic strap, In my opinion as good as any other strap available.

When not on the bracelet, I usually wear mine on the CW Vintage Oak, I think the distressed look really works with the C9. I also have the CW blue alligator strap for it which gives it a quite formal look.

This is the original brown alligator strap for the first release of the SH21 C9.

It's a bit too dark for me, but it's OK (ish).

There's always time for one more.

Here's a similar styled watch with a CW black cordovan strap.

The slight smudge on the strap near the 6, which I have just realised is there, is because the end of the strap has been rubbing against a different watch case. Now I've seen it, I am very irritated, and I am applying some cordovan polish to the strap. I guess that's why some straps have curved ends. It's also a function of a short lug to lug, and a pain when straps are quite expensive.

Blue cordovan on bader to pick out the blued hands. There’s just something about white dial, blued hands and a nice blue leather strap that looks so right to me.
