    Do you think maybe a brown strap?

    Black is elegant but brown also can be, right?

    Right.

    Black and brown are both all-purpose. Sometimes it has to be the right shade of brown, though. I’d be happy to wear mid or dark brown with that watch. And black, of course.

    My favorite color for that style of gold watch is actually more like a Burgundy-brown. I think the old name for it was oxblood.

    I have a SeaGull WuYi reissue on something a bit like burgundy....



    This one here looks good I think, although it's a bit more straight brown:

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Agree...I think a brown iyonk creation would complement this one beautifully!
    Cheers,

    That looks great on black, a dressy brown would be a nice option too. I'm jealous. GREAT looking watch!
