Strap on a Bell-Matic

While adjusting the long, shiny and somewhat noisy bracelet on my “new” watch with dark blue dial and rings of teal and cobalt, I decided to try a few other choices.

In my 19mm drawer I found: Beige leather did not work, dark brown Cordovan was also unhappy, while a mesh bracelet did not fit. Shifting to 18mm there was nothing suitable.
Digging into the vast 20mm pile I uttered “Eureka!”

Cobalt stitching! Deployant already fitted.

Dark blue leather. Ends easily fitted into the lugless case.

Thanks! I have a couple other Bell-Matics
