Personally the brown oak vintage strap would be my choice ;)

Mine came with the brown oak but I've had it on the blue webbing since day 1. I change the strap on my C65 quite often but for some reason not this one.

I’d also go with the dark brown strap.

If you are not going to keep acid washing your bronze C60; it will change colour to an uneven darker brown with lighter highlights where the watch rubs on cuffs and other clothing.

This patina will be uneven and to my eyes very attractive. If you want the watch and strap to look as if they belong to each other, the strap will need to look similarly 'distressed'. A bright, shiny, clean strap will look out of place. Which is a long way of saying: "Vintage Oak" or similar. Here's my own brown strap.

There's always time for one more.

Thanks for your opinions. Yep I will stick with the vintage leather.
