This GP has become my go-to watch and near daily wearer if I don't need ruggedness. I wanted to dress it down and give it a more vintage look. Custom ordered a grained leather strap from Camille Fournet which I received this morning. What do you think? I probably would have gone one shade darker if I could do it over again, but it's still pretty cool! What do you guys think? The interior lining is a cool blue rubberized leather material for summer.

I think it looks great. Definitely a "vintage" look as I've seen a lot of vintage watches on a similar strap. Hodinkee sells a similar one and it looks like one of their best by a long shot. I also think you nailed the color choice. Darker would have been a poor choice in my opinion and as others have noted it will likely darken over time. Looks great right now though.
EDIT: And I just noticed it's a minute repeater.
