    What do you think of this watch and strap combo?

    Do you think these look good together? Should I go with this strap or keep looking? The watch is my new Stowa Partitio and the strap is a single piece Hodinkee cordovan.

    I don't think that strap does the watch justice mate..its too plain and looks very plasticish? A very humble opinion by the way. .just wouldn't be my choice

    Plain black leather (calf or buffalo) with white stitching would be my choice. The white stitching follows on from the numerals on the dial. Great watch, by the way.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I wasn't too sure about the strap either, and I just wanted to make sure I was right. I've got this one coming in the mail for this watch too. Hopefully it works out better.

    That chunky and better quality strap with the white stitches should do it more justice.
    I look forward to some pics when it arrives.

    Agree with GeofF ^^

    The strap(s) shown overpower the watch.
    Partitio is a great little watch and needs a befitting strap.
    Tapered croc, maybe with accent stitching, would look really nice.

    What do you think of this one? It reminds me of the alligator strap I liked that was on my old Longines Master Collection watch I sold. It doesn't look to shiny, so I think it might suit the watch.
