    Having just bought a new moonwatch I have always liked the look of them on a brown leather strap. I cant decide what to buy. Post a pic of yours!

    I think the Speedy looks perfect on brown leather. These are mine, the first two are straps from Hodinkee (pricey but very nice, have held up well) the last is a dark brown Omega alligator deployant. My personal favorite is the first.

    Very nice!

    My wife has made a habit out of ordering Bas&Loks straps for my birthday. It’s a good tradition E4F3D6FD-1B15-49D5-B248-89D4E836CC2C.jpeg 9F38294A-711D-4313-AE0C-95C432FB52FB.jpeg

    That's pretty funny as I have just ordered my first strap from them last week. Im really looking forward to wearing it. Love their selection, and that they allow you to completely customize them- especially the length as I don't have very large wrists.

    This thread is completely what I also need to see for the same reason. Been trying to find decent UK suppliers from the big strap thread.

    You’re going to like them. The darker strap is the Wyatt, lighter strap is the Bahrain. The suede on the Bahrain is super comfortable.

    Cousins UK do a heavily padded Italian alligator strap that fits the modern OEM deployant really well (formerly known as the "Bellini" strap).

    What black nato is this? Love the grey edging.

    But since this is a brown leather thread, here is mine on horween leather by Threaded Leather.
