Best strap for bronze watch?

I am theory crafting what sort of strap/bracelet would look good on a bronze watch like the CW Trident C60 Bronze. Let me know what you think, as well as any other ideas you have!

Here are a few great options in and around that dollar figure. If these aren't your style, I suggest looking around more at these brands because they have quite a wide range. My personal favorite from this list is the Hydrotimer from Jack Mason.

Orient Mako-3 AA08 Diver Watch | RA-AA0821S19B RA-AA0821S RAAA0821S | Orient Watch USA - $340

Orient World Map Revival Watch | RA-AA0E01S19B RA-AA0E01S AA0E01S | Orient Watch USA - $430

Benguela โ€“ Green NH35A โ€“ Draken Watches - $499

SRPJ33 โ€“ Seiko USA - $595

Sector Deep - Polar Destro โ€” Nodus Watches - $599

Aquascaphe Classic White - Baltic Watches (baltic-watches.com) - $632

Arctic White | Freediver (traskawatch.com) - $660

Hydrotimer Dive Watch โ€“ Jack Mason (jackmasonbrand.com) - $729

I hope this helps!

What are your goals and what budget do you have?

I have been really impressed with how much they elevate the look of a watch, especially with the deployant clasp. Heard nothing but good things about the user experience too. I enjoyed your review post!

I think blue would look great against the bronze, but I am not quite sure how it would pair with a brown dial. What do you think for that dial specifically?

Beautiful watch! I think the bronze version will be my next watch later this year.

I can hardly wait. Everything I hear about them is amazing. It would be a big jump up in quality for my collection as well.

That is an absolutely stunning watch!

Thank you!

I hope you enjoy it. I'm actually with you on cigar choice, I tend to smoke Arturo Fuentes and Perdomo. My local shop gave me 50% off and I thought that was my best chance to grab a Davidoff haha.

My wife and I are having our first child this August, and I am planning to get a watch to commemorate the moment (as well as to one day pass on to her). I am definitely leaning a certain way but of th...
