I got the manual and gmt as nearly new. Going to keep the gmt and have attached a few photos of it on different straps. Really like the zuludiver sailcloth one as a strap but Barton colour match to the gmt hand is probably a bit better. Will return one, probably the Barton. Even though the colour match may be better it feels a lot cheaper and the flashes of colour aren't as obvious as the Zuludiver and it can look a bit plain. Think the stitching on the zuludiver helps add a bit of contrast

Would also vote for Barton rubber (excuse the dust) quick release, very comfortable and great value.

I switched between the bracelet and this Barton Elite when I owned the GMT ...

I like that khaki silicone one. Looks a good match for the vintage lume. Considering a fabric/canvas one from Barton in khaki. Have got the cw one but may return it as Barton one is a lot cheaper.
