Black strap.

I've tried this already. The black strap and the grey strap look best on the black zeitwerk. You're welcome!

Black for sure. Navy could be passable. Brown's a no-go IMHO.

Another option would be Lange's gray-blue strap that comes with the platinum Datograph -- sort of a charcoal color with slightly lighter stitching. A dark gray strap would look good.

Thanks for all the feedback

I agree the brown strap doesn’t match this dial. I will try it with a dark grey/ grey-blue strap one day. NATO could be interesting but it isn’t my preference. Thanks and stay safe!

For reference, here's what I did with a white metal ZW...

I'm sharing this because it turned out to be one of my favorite strap/watch combinations. I took a chance on this strap because I had never seen this finish (which I think is typically used on women's straps) in person and I usually don't like such thick ...  

When in doubt GO Black !

I think Black suits the best in this timepiece.

I would definitely go with black but not necessarily Croko

A more casual strap with a white stitch might give the Zeitwerk a more "sporty" look

I would go with black and wear my ZW mostly with a black strap as well...

you might also want to try a charcoal dark grey as I think that combo also works well with the ZW

I would say grey...

Not a fan of blue and black combo to be frank. Full black is a bit sad. I usually don't like brown. So with this type of watch I like grey or burdundy strap! Fx

Plus it has the deployant clasp which I think adds to the elegant look.

I think you need to be a little more bold.

How about something a little lighter? I had a grey strap and some others on my Datograph. I tried to link the previous posts but it hasn’t worked so just do a search and you’ll see some posts from last year. These black dials and PT cases can allow for lo... 

Got to go black [nt]

Black all the way

I’d look into good quality bespoke straps

 By: Kmboxers : June 22nd, 2020-12:37
It’s a stunning watch and I think a coloured strap with contrast stitching possibly to pull out the dial details and make it pop! You can always have the black as the ‘safe option’ for those occasions 😀

Due to the white gold dial....

..... I would say it still looks best with a black strap. In any case, an amazing watch from Lange!

A brown can look great with the black dial

 By: Geo : June 23rd, 2020-08:53
But maybe not a dark brown alligator. I have been dubbing quite some time, what colour would look good and also thought about grey. Finally decided for this lighter brown. Black on black is never wrong, but also a bit boring. GEO ...  

Holy smokes - that's gorgeous...!

Whats the strap, if I may ask

personally i think BLACK fits this version of Zeitwerk well.

 By: mahesh : June 23rd, 2020-11:28
I recollect seeing a 'whitish-grey' strap once & it went well too. Best, mahesh.,

Thank you and I should have mentioned that...

I did look at CF and seems the only pearlized they now offer is green. Pardon me not noting that before . I also would prefer a more medium gray, not so dark, and CF doesn't seem to offer a medium gray. I wore the WG Zeit last night and I gotta say, I rea... 

Yes, the first photo is misleadingly light. It's darker.

This is the same strap on a different (yellow gold) watch but taken in less sunlight. ...
