C60 bronze strap

Post by Christoperjc » Sat Nov 17, 2018 8:36 pm

Hello all cw fans,
I've just purchased a cw c60 bronze which I love, my question is does anyone have any input on a nice strap to put on it ? I've got the cw blie canvas strap which I'm not overly pleased with. Thanks in advance.

Which size one do you have - 38mm or 43mm?
Makes a difference as the lug width is either 20mm and 22mm respectively.

Size dependent, I have a couple of nice brown leather straps that would work.

I've been fiddling with this for a while. My problem is that whilst I'm happy with the watch getting patinated, the blue canvas strap just looked too rubbish, too quickly.
On the other hand, there's no point in having a shiny alligator strap on a 'well used' looking bronze watch. I don't like natos, and I do like the Bader clasp.

So, for now I'm using a rustic looking brown leather. Looks fine to me.

I think a canvas strap would look great on that. Check Clover Straps for some reasonably priced custom options.

Straps are awesome though.

He is a close friend of mine, I have worn his first strap he ever made, as an experiment. It was ... 5-6 years ago. He went a long way since then.

What is so bad about the canvas strap?

Thanks for all your replies.
It's the 43mm size. Paul that has nice patina developing there and looks nice on the strap, I agree about the blue canvas cw strap looks a little washed out and does no Justice to the watch. I have since had a nice new blue leather with orange sticking custom made, the strap I thinks looks nice with this watch, it's also very comfy.
Some reason I can't add a picture ?
