As much as I love wearing my Ocean 1 (42mm with 22mm lugs) on its solid SS OEM bracelet, I've been trying some various strap combos to spice things up a bit. At this point I am not a guy who would consider spending more than about $35-$40 on a strap. Why buy straps when I can buy more watches, right?

But the really low-end ones have not been cutting it for me when paired with my beloved Ocean 1. So I started poking around. Looked at several Hirsch, Hadley Roma, Panatime, and others. Then I found an obscure strap by Darlena available over at Timefactors. It really caught my eye.

Since it was within my price range, I decided to give it a go. The strap is smooth padded black leather with white stitching and 5mm thick. It does taper from 22mm to 18mm at the buckle.

Here's some preliminary shots of the result:

Here are some color shots I snapped this morning. Hopefully they reveal more detail.
