Need some advice. My blue 5 Military should be going on the big brown truck today, so I haven't seen it in person, but I'm already considering a strap swap. Has anyone done this and, if so, what color and type did you pick? Pics, if possible, please.

Thanks for your help.

BTW, what is the correct lug width?

I think brown leather would look nice. Something simple. Maybe a white contrast stitch. It is a military-esq so gator would look out of place.

Do you mean one of these?



If so, mine is still wearing the original strap primarily because it's ultra-comfortable and looks nice of this "minimalist" watch.

Thanks, Catbird. Your point is well taken. Should probably just wait until it gets here to see if maybe the original isn't so bad after all.

Thanks to all for your help. I was thinking of dark brown also. The white stitching is a great idea.
