Need some casual strap ideas for this one. Right now it’s on matte navy alligator.

Thinking of navy suede or maybe navy sharkskin?

The exotic leather stuff like shark skin, stingray, etc can end up looking really weird sometimes though.

It is ridiculous. A mindless muppets watch.

I like the grey and gold combo...something that I've been looking for in a watch and I like the overall aesthetic...Probably something I could get from Habring for a bit cheaper and from people I have some admiration for.

I was really looking at this one closely...but not entirely sold on the black bezel and steel. Ideally I'd have the U50 (dial, hands, and bezel style) in titanium with a titanium bezel...

I have a ezm3 and 856utc, and love them both. I'm excited to get another Sinn

Nice, came very close to getting the EZM over this one, but I love how thin this is. Refreshing after wearing mostly thicker divers.

Love your Daniel Roth! As a first choice I'd try suede - dark blue or maybe dark brown. I think stingray just seems to busy. A friend had a stingray strap on a rose gold AP Millenary Star Wheel, and it was an interesting material, but it just never looked right with it. It just seemed like the strap was so busy it was competing with what was happening on the dial. Maybe it would have worked better if it were a time only piece. Sharkskin might work, but I have never really loved sharkskin for a watch strap. If you are open to sharkskin perhaps consider ostrich leg which, which is not the part that has the bumps (my mom hated ostrich skin, claiming it looked like leather with acne :rotflmao:). The leg depending on the section taken can have sections that look a bit like crocodile, or smaller patterned sections that can look like sharkskin or a big lizard. Years ago my dad had a wallet made out of it and it wore well and was interesting. I just included a few sample photos from below showing it can look different depending on the section of the leg that is used.
