    some months ago I got my new ST2 Ultraman. I have not worn it yet as I am waiting for a special occasion to wear it for the first time and because as much as I love the watch I think that the nato with the orange line is quite loud and steals the thunder of the dial and the leather strap that comes with it is not the quality that I would like.
    So my question for your kind help...
    Do you have any suggestions for a strap that would compliment it without being too loud?
    (My ideas so far would be a solid black nato strap or a military green leather strap...)
    Thank you

    It’s a Speedy Pro... any strap looks good.

    Why not try the original orange striped strap? I think it complements the orange accents on the dial and is not too 'loud'. It's a sports watch, it's supposed to have a bit of flair. I'm not sure introducing a green color into the mix is the way to go but try it and see.

    You could try a custom Rousseau strap in black with orange stitching, that looks good.

    I would say something like the above IF you were using it formally. ABP concept can help you with one of those; they're having a sale too I think.

    Otherwise I'll hook you up with 10% off. You can choose anything from Alligator to Elephant.

    I think anything black strap would look good and minimalistic. How about a suede strap?

    You might also look at the Omega Black NATO with orange edges. It is a subtle look that would accent the dial yet not look as prominent as the stock strap with central orange stripe. But if you don't like any color on the strap than a solid black NATO is the way to go.

    Thanks. I think though that the gator strap does not really go with a speedy...
    Cheers

    That would probably work better than the original one... a bit more discreet and the dial would pop up better

    I have seen a military camo green on it on another forum so the colour combination (orange/military green) could work...
    The original nato though is a tad too loud...

    They look great on a bracelet although I’m not sure which model is suitable having read a few discussions. And not a cheap alternative...
