No, I left it behind to research it and the bracelet but I may go back for it later. Also checked another store in the same Mall that had a sweet JLC Master Control and IWC Portuguese, didn't get any pics though.

Styles mentioned in this thread:
I respect your highly accomplished strap awesomeness, but I've never liked those perforated things. Contrast stitching would definitely be appropriate, though - maybe just a solid, untapered, padded black calf leather with some eye-melting stitches?
Were the Master Control and Port new or used? And I was initially thinking along the lines of Mimo, but I think I may have to agree with Apropos on this one. However, I do think that a funky Nato strap could be cool, a la the strap on the new Tudor Heritage Chrono. Variety is the spice of life.
Make your mind up, Nuke! Yeah, that's sort of the mental picture I had. Overall, it just strikes me as a rather unusual but also fun, not-to-be-taken-too-seriously kind of thing, and so a bit of colour or at least personality seems to be required to match it. Anyway, I like it - look forward to seeing Max's pictures on the strap he ends up with (assuming he goes back!).
Then again, during the summer I really like brightly colored Natos.
Something fun like this:
Which is, mind you, one of the coolest things I have seen in a while!

For that particular Seamaster, I do like the idea of a perforated strap.
I have a black one that I wear on my Monaco from time to time. (It's usually on blue croc).
Never was a fan of the "large holes" style myself.
How about this one, via Pantime?
EDIT: sorry for the huge image.
And jeezus, what a bunch of enablers....Madmax hasn't even bought the watch yet!
Here's a pic of it on a racing strap as suggested by Apropos.
Here's a link with some owners with other strap/bracelet options
That's the issue when you are using a movement designed in 1969 to fit a chronograph with a 38mm case and trying to make it work in a much larger contemporary case size. The subdials end up looking squished into the middle of what is a much larger dial.
