I could really use some strap options

Post by Guest on Fri May 24, 2013 1:11 pm

What strap do you guys think would look good on this Vintage Caravelle? I purchased it a few months back for $15 just the watch head no band. I did have it on a gold tone Twist'O flex bracelet but now have it on this black Alligator style strap I had lying around. It works ok but I would rather have a newer one. I was thinking of a Genuine Lizard? But I'm open to any suggestions. I don't want to spend to much for the strap after all the watch cost me $15.00

Lizard is always a good choice, but I'd say your Caravelle is looking pretty sharp on the gator. Looks like way more than $15.

Thanks I agree. If I do go with Lizard should I go with a black or brown?

Why not try the brown? A little less formal than the black. I think you'll find you wear it more with the brown - and it will work nicely with the gold tone. Dress up? Put the black one on for the Ambassador's Ball.

Although on second thought, if you do go brown - croc or gator might be a better choice than lizard. I tend to think of lizard as more of a dress strap and it usually looks better in black.

I could do that? So far its a toss up between these three?

Your call. If you want to keep it as a dress piece - black lizard all the way. More casual? Medium brown croc or gator. I've got a vintage 14kt. Hamilton Sherwood/Seneca that I switch back and forth between brown gator and black croc all the time. I put both the wife's vintage Cartier tank and my gold tone vintage Accutron on black lizard - they look like a million bucks.

A thin strap (not thick padded) whether it be lizzard or leather. The thick padded straps don't look right on vintage watches.

I say get a good quality leather, chocolate brown.

Makes a lot of sense. I could always go back and forth between a Lizard and the current strap I have.

Agreed with the thick padded part.

Lizard. And not notched, it should be the width of the lug space. With the notches like you have currently, the head gets lost.
