    I tried leather on these style of watches (hmm OK, it was an Alpha ) Even though I liked it in the beginning I ended up switching back to metal bracelets.
    I have to applaud your eye for color matching though. The blue matches perfectly!

    The first one is really nice.

    How tough are curved spring bars/straps to install?

    I have never done it before, but could see a good possibility on a watch I have, as gaps have no place in my world...
