Cylon, based on past posts/pics I was thinking this as well.
Can't kill da rooster - Lovely broad arrow ! - Re the strap question, one of the combinations I find works well with strap is match strap to dial colour and stitch to indices colour (or off-white) instead of silver. Maybe something with a finer edge stitching in this case too.
Never really thought of it this way. Think I will try a couple out next week.
