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.

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

I refuse to wear thick watches now or any type. Knowing what sinn can do and that they are indestructible basically. What's the point of wearing 15mm+ bricks.

This watch really is a perfect starter watch. My wife has been running with it, sometimes up to 20 km per run and it still more or less only loses 1 to 2 per day.

I don’t think anything in this price point is as accurate, except GS spring drive.

Also, the crystal and grey dial are such a nice touch. Really does nail the vintage vibe. I have 0 regrets selling my 66 submariner because I just borrow this when I’m in the mood for vintage lol
