Tip #1 – Choose a leather strap that complements the color of the watch dial, hands or markers
If your dial is cream or champagne color, then perhaps consider brown or tan straps for a warm and elegant look. White or silver dials are very versatile as well and look excellent with dark and lighter straps. Brown and tan leather lend a warm feel. Grey and black leather are a starker look and provide maximum contrast. Bold leather colors can be used with these dials to make a statement.
Think about the clothes you wear. Is there an article of clothing or accessory that you wear often, such as wearing the same shoes and belt? This is a good starting point. Choose a strap in the same color or similar tones so it matches these accessories. If it’s a leather jacket you love, then perhaps consider matching it to that or accessories like your favorite bag or wallet.
