I would like to try my 40mm flieger on an anthracite suede strap, but before I spend the cash on it I was wondering if anybody had this combo with pics to share? I'm currently looking at either the fluco or nomos strap.

Should look nice … there are many pics of similar combos online … only concern would be thickness (not width) of strap… a very thin dressy strap may look a bit odd in my opinion…

It can look really good in my opinion. I like Fluco straps and you can get them at very competitive prices from this site (in the UK): Fluco Velor Brown Leather Watch Strap : 18mm or 20mm UK Watch Strap
be aware though, they will get darker with moderate use.


This is my Flieger (sadly now sold) and Partitio. Both straps were the same when new. The Partitio still looks good on its one although it now looks almost black in some lights. Nomos straps are a lot more expensive but perhaps they retain their colour better? Don't know as I have never seen one.

I have my IWC pilot on a blue suede strap and it looks great to me, so I think your choice would look very good as well, IMHO.

My Hanhart will come on a blue suede strap.

Oh wow, I didn't realize the color would darken so much. I may opt for a lighter color than the anthracite to avoid it turning nearly black. These are great pics that show the look on suede. Thanks for sharing!
