So how to pick the right strap?

What’s the best choice to complement your ensemble? Here are some useful tricks to choosing the right watch strap. Just remember: watch tastes are very personal. The following are basic rules so feel free to break them!

Overall Rule:

Match leather and metal items. For example, with a black belt and black shoes, you should have a black watch strap. If you are wearing silver jewelry, your watch case should be silver. Eventually, your strap and strap buckle should be silver too. Same rule applies to gold. Make sense? Pretty easy.
