Straps for CW C60 Trident 43mm

Post by Mikeyb13 » Tue Aug 06, 2019 5:04 pm

Hi everyone. New guy here. Just received my C60 Trident orange and black 43mm watch from the almost new sale. This is my first "real" watch and I absolutely love it. But I would love to save the bracelet for the fall and winter months and use something lighter for the summer. I've looked at CWs website but nothing jumped out at me. Has anyone replaced the bracelet with a non CW strap and if so, what would you recommend?

What about this CW soft touch strap with orange stitching.
Would work very well.

Summer is perfect for NATO style straps - light, breathable, VERY cheap and washable if they become too “fragrant”. Pretty much any colour combination is available from Amazon, eBay....

Erikasoriginals are great summer straps (worth the premium over the cheaper copies) but at €50 a go, you may be better putting the money against the bracelet. If you’re shopping Stateside, Nick Mankey Designs does a similar but different strap at under $30.

Hi
This image shows a good quality inexpensive calf leather strap with contrasting coloured stitching from thewatchstrap store.
These are nice and flexible and very comfy:

Thank you so much for the replies. I have some digging to do. I'm now even more unsure of what I want. 🤣
