[quote="baldrick"]Right - a selection of straps with some (shamefully dismal) photos.

Big fan of the Borealis rubber but also quite taken with the mesh (thanks Robden for the idea!). I'm going to leave it on that for now.

The Bradystraps blue sailcloth with yellow stitching is also a perfect fit to my eye - really good combo - but perhaps too dressy for a tool diver.

You got'a luv a mesh. Mind you, the Borealis doesn't look too shabby.

Thank to the generosity of Bahnstormer_vRS, I've had the opportunity to try the watch on the Hirsch Robby which I think suits the watch perfectly and is so much more comfortable than the supplied rubber strap. I think it looks great!

Yes, I could like that; the strap seems to have enough "body" to not be dominated by the size of the case.
I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

Glad it has worked out for you. :thumbup: Looks great. :clap:

I see you've wasted no time changing the buckle; CWL 'sports' by any chance?

Enjoy.

It's just the original buckle from the rubber OEM strap :)

Thought something like that.

I've done the same myself. :thumbup:

Bumping an old thread with some new shoes for the Trident Chrono.

Somewhat left-field, but I took a punt on a blue and yellow Citizen Nighthawk Blue Angels strap. Crap photos, but I'm really quite happy with it. (Strap was from Hurley Roberts, which was cheaper than most other outlets by about USD 20, but confess I didn't do a great deal of searching.)ImageImageImageImageImage

That looks fantastic, a great strap for that watch.
