    SE Straps

    Thanks for my strap Piers, much appreciated - excellent workmanship indeed, a fine piece of kit! Cannot wait to marry it up with the watch itself although I will take your advise and 'brush' the buckle to take the shine off it.

    While I am delighted with the grey leather strap on my S/S SE, and the canvas one from Piers, I was just wondering if a yellow leather strap would work?? Picking up the yellow accents on the watch itself - thoughts anyone!

    Yellow leather? Sounds a bit extreme...
    Maybe a black leather with yellow stitching would be good to bring out the yellow while not being too much in your face.
    No longer a fan boy...

    I have ordered a Toshi slate grey strap, it was suggested to me that yellow stitching would not work and to either go for grey or natural stitching.

    Sounds good advice! I do however like the Toshi slate grey.

    Agreed, I think it would be super hard to pull off a yellow strap. Perhaps you could have a Zero-Zero made by GGB with yellow stitching on grey or black nylon?

    All food for thought but for the time being will enjoy the straps I have, a black NATO came with my SE.

    Hey guys.... Curious if anyone ordered a Gas Gas Bones or Toshi strap for their SE? Was thinking of a Zero Zero black with yellow stitching.... Post some pics if you did!

    Of note, I've noticed that Carl is now offering different colored leather springbar keepers. I think a black strap with grey leather keepers and yellow stitching would look terrific! We could ask him if he could do something like that?
