I am getting close to placing an order for a "Breitling Navitimer Montbrillant Datora" with a Havana Dial.

What are your opinions on strap colors? Should I get it on a Brown Croco Strap or Gold Croco Strap? I want the deployant buckle too.

I am thinking to maybe order it on a Navitimer Bracelet and get the strap also.

I got mine on the bracelet and a Chocolate brown strap on the side.
The combo of Havana dial and dark brown strap just blows your socks off and really brings out the color of the dial

I had the 2 combo on my 38mm Montbrillant.

I would take Navitimer bracelet and dark (if you can choose from various pieces) brown croco. The only picture I have made is with the gold strap. Jean-Michel posted it in navitimer.net. I reproduce it here. Not a Havana Datora, but it gives the idea.
Cheers,
Christian

Thanks guys!
I think the gold strap is probably to light for the Havana dial, so it will be on the Brown Croco strap. Will try to get the strap as an "extra" and order the watch on the Navitimer bracelet.
