Thread: Strap Suggestions for Sinn St 144 Jubilee?

    Strap Suggestions for Sinn St 144 Jubilee?

    Hey guys, for some reason I really wanted a DLC black watch...after a bunch of digging I ended up getting this awesome Sinn from WatchRecon.




    But now I am thinking about putting it on a strap instead of a metal bracelet. I ended up ordering a bunch of black-buckle NATOs the other day, but then I got thinking about leather and maybe even rubber.

    Figured you guys would have lots of ideas Any suggestions or thoughts?


    Thanks,
    Dan

    One thing I really liked with my black watches was a bit odd, I admit. Light brown/tan leather.

    Ha, I actually found my own picture in a Google search.

    Gray NATO with PVD hardware works too:

    These are some of mine that I do. The one on the right would look sweet.

    No help at all; but for me.... Leave it on the bracelet - It looks the business as it is
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    I like DLC/PVD on dark brown leather. My late Pilot Pro:

    I've always really liked light tan straps on black watches.

    black watches are fine but i think black watches with black bracelets are just a little too black [ my own opinion of course ]- the only one i have in that vein is the Citizen which i bought because it was all black - very soon became disenchanted with that particular look - now i wear it on a vintage brown -black1 copy 2.jpg a nice leather strap will change that watch particularly - you will expose those rather large lug ends [ unless you use a knotched strap of course ] so i vote yes to the leather , maybe even tan leather nato
