    Can't stand black watch straps myself , treat the supplied as a to try when a watch turns up

    Grey straps don't work often imo, but, can, and do on some

    I agree with you, grey strap combos can work really well, and look great on silver and grey dials (can also look great on black dial watches too imo).

    Grey nato:












    Grey dive strap:




    Grey canvas:




    Grey Zulu:

    Cheers,

    Chris

    I only have three grey straps and I like them. Their "neutrality" makes them an easy match to a lot of different watches.

    Yes it is, Jim. But the pic's colour balance made it look a bit more brownish than it really is.
