    Strap advice for my Stowa

    Hello everyone, I need some strap advice. I asked for advice on this watch in an earlier thread, and now one of the straps I mentioned in that thread has arrived. Which strap do you think works better on this watch?


    The Stowa OEM that came with the watch:

    Or the new Bulang and Sons:

    What do you think and thanks for your help! You people are great!

    I love the Bulang one much better... since i just love simple stiches strap and this particular one match the white hands and numbers on the dial perfectly..
    to my eyes, it just look sweet...

    lovely combo buddy! enjoy that handsome stowa.

    I perfer the Stowa strap. The other one wants to be on a pilot's watch, while the watch itself looks like a dressy/casual type of watch. BTW, Love the ink collection. I'm just getting into pens myself.

    I like em both! The stitching on the B&S lug end looks kinda military to me, which matches the watch.

    I like the B&S one more, then I would as it is made by Jean Paul Menicucci of Italy and we also stock them

    One thing I wouldn't describe the Partitio as is 'kinda military'

    It takes its design cues from a 1930's model... It's more a dress watch than anything else.

    This is the problem I'm having with the watch and straps. Sometimes I think the Bulang looks really good on it, a little military even. Other times I think it looks all wrong because it is not a military watch. I'm leaning toward the OEM strap because of this. However, I find the OEM a little plain. Maybe that's what this watch needs. I don't know. I'm open to suggestions.

    I find it the hardest thing looking for a replacement strap for some watches....

    Maybe look at other Stowa genuine straps.... or another source might be somewhere like Steinhart who do loads of straps

    I disagree - I think it looks kinda military!
