Now that you've said it, I think a big part--or rather the entirety--of the reason I have a hard time pulling the trigger on a brown strap is precisely because of this fact. It is definitely a COLD dial, and certainly something to think about. As some of you may know, I kinda soured on it for awhile after I bought the speedy, but I have come back to it in recent weeks. I think a new strap will help, and heres some I found. I think the watch will look FREAKING AWESOME with something like these two: Sometimes I think I'm a bit colorblind when it comes to navy but the right strap is navy right?
