I did search however didn't find what I was looking. So here is questions for you watch collectors/strap collectors. A lil but t about what I collect.
Vintage Hamilton
Vintage bulova
Vintage Elgin
Modern dive watches (omega smp 300/seiko monsters / helix Swiss Quartz / Invicta pro diver and grand diver; I've modded a few prodivers )
Modern pilot watches (Hamilton 44mm with 6497/ I've put together three pilot style watches / Hamilton times 2 khaki)

What I would is the opinion of the folks here at wtf on matching straps to watches . Example
When to put a dark blue strap on watch taking into consideration the case material / dial color and so forth
All of my military/field watches have the tan leather straps I would like to change it up but I'm thinking once u put a dressing watch strap on now it becomes a dress watch. I just put together a caravelle pocket watch dial/ movement Unitas 6498 I put a solid black strap and it looked good however I just put a blue strap on it and man I think it looks awesome with the blue
What do u guys thinks
