    A few years ago I bought a Georg Jensenwatch: http://www.georgjensen.com/~/media/I...&h=640&as=true Because I never wear black shoes/belts anymore, the watch is not in use. A pity, because I like the minimalistic face. I'm looking for a brown strap. Any suggestions?

    I'm not sure what you are asking? Measure it lug to lug (the width of the strap at the watch) and get what you like. This is an easy watch to install a strap on. Look on timezone.com in the classified section for some ideas on color.

    Well, to be honest. I'm looking for an online shop where I can order a simple ( not a cheap looking) brown strap.
    Or is it better to sell the watch because a brown strap won't do the job?

    If you like the watch, there is certainly no need to sell it. A brown strap will work very well with it.

    As has been suggested, just measure (in mm) the width of the watch end of the strap and choose a brown strap you like. There are a number of threads with suggestions for companies that sell watch straps (both here and especially on timezone.com).

    I've had several good experiences with each of them.

    I've generally been pretty happy with aftermarket straps sold by Walt at LoneStarWatches.com or Bob Davis (http://www.mywatchmaker.net/watchstr...atchstraps.htm ). Both are regulars on TZ Sales Corner

    The Watch Boys are great as well

    I've had good experiences with TWB as well.. A nice dark or honey brown Gator strap would look nice on that way.

    I've purchase a couple of straps (Di-Modell Carbon and Hadley-Roma SS Bracelet) for my Breitling from Kenny at fredawatchstraps. He goes by cheapbas on TimeZone.

    Thank you all for your advice.
    The Gator strap is very nice, but because the watch is very minimalistic, will the alligator strap and the minimialistic face be a good combination?

    April in Paris does bespoke watch straps, if you're so inclined.
