Awesome. Thanks a lot for these links. I feel like the dark brown strap goes really well with the teak gray dial AT.

Two more follow-up questions, if you guys don't mind:

1. Relatively speaking, how difficult is it to remove the spring bars on an AT? I know that some watches (such as the Tudor Pelagos) have spring bars that are notoriously difficult to remove.

2. For a 41.5mm AT 8500, would I be looking at 19mm lugs? Just want to confirm and not purchase the wrong one.

Thanks again for everyone's help and the inspiring photos!

I am in the armed forces and all my watches come out and play, from ranges, to deployments. Does not matter on brand from Patek, Rolex, Omega to JLC.

Took some day trips by train this weekend, so it seemed fitting to sport my 42mm Railmaster (on a generic but very nice and comfy calfsking strap).

Saturday, LIRR to Jamaica for a transfer:

Hey fellas,

I purchased an Aqua Terra 8500 in the Teak Gray colorway over the summer. The watch came with the SS bracelet. I love the SS bracelet, but am thinking about getting a leather strap to dress it up a little.

What would you guys consider the best leather strap option? Would you recommend going for the OEM black strap? If so, about how much will one of those run me, and how would I go about purchasing one?

Thanks for any help!

Small observation: You guys are making me feel really bad about how I treat my Aqua Terra! I would say that I wear mine pretty hard (I even somehow got a small ding on one of the lugs), but it seems like you guys take efforts to keep your beautiful watches pristine!
You're wearing it how it's supposed to be worn

Pgoat. Pm me about your Hadley Roma bracelet. It says you are not accepting or can't accept pms.
Thanks

Hey Happy, sorry about that - and thanks for letting me know.

It's apparently not letting me send PMs, either; I'm not sure what's up since it worked fine for years beforehand?

I put my emil addy in the bracelet sales thread.

Your 2500 Aqua Terra (2503.80) is a beauty! I have been looking for this exact watch for some time now. Interested in selling?

Thanks,
Ryan
