I have a Panerai and used to swap the strap every morning to coordinate with shoes/belt. While I like the ease w/w you can do that, it was still a hassle and I think it looked too fussy - a little too anal. That's just me. That Seiko is nice, though, and I am just saying how I thought the coordination looked on me.
9073 From Citishoes with Black Edge. Darker side of the cigar spectrum is typical on this make up from Citi, and appropriately so, IMO. TSM's version has antique edge, as depicted by other poster.

My thoughts on a cigar balmoral. Still very formal. I only expect to wear these with a navy suit. Would not wear to a job interview, ect, where I would instead employ a Black or Color 8 Cap Toe. However, I would wear these cigar cap toes for social occasions where a suit is appropriate. Weddings, Christenings, ect.
If my memory serves me correctly, you already own the 9016, therefore, since you have the basics covered, this would be a nice addition. No doubt it's a niche make-up, rather than a staple.
I try not to follow the Epaulet and Carmina threads because they show photos of items I can actually buy, right now, 3 clicks away. Ep and Carmina also take special orders, bastards, both of them.
Which brings me to today's RL discounted shell talk...
You really should do it if it's not already too late.
Sizes are going fast.
