Help me choose casual strap for Breguet 7097?

Apr 26, 2021,22:24 PM

I spent a few minutes photoshopping some Gunny and CF straps on to a Breguet 7097. I am looking to dress the watch down, i.e., should go with jeans. My favorite is the Gunny strap so far since it has both a vintage look and dark (almost black) color that brings out the detail in the watch face. Any other thoughts?

I’d go with the very first one in picture 1, and the gray ostrich in the second picture.

I do like the green straps but I’d want the skin to be a matte or even distressed finish. Love the watch, it’s been on my “wish to own” list for several years.

Grey Alligator and Grey Ostrich

But also the blue alligator makes the hands pop

I like the gray ostrich.

Like with ties...

It has been an incredible privilege to own one! It is a very different effect, having the movement on the dial side rather than skeleton works.. Breguet did a masterful job with all Tradition pieces.

I've never been a fan of skeletonized watches as I've always been a "dial" guy and appreciate to savor the movement when exhibited on the back. I will admit, however, that the first time I saw this Breguet, I was struck by the geometric train wheel bridge...

I like how the blue matches the hands and this blue makes it more casual. I also like your choice. Great watch - can’t go wrong since all eyes will be on the watch anyway.

Did you have a look at.....

a Nato strap? When it comes to jeans, dressing down, it should be at least considered, no? There are some pretty snazzy ones out there, these days

I would go for a brown (milk chocolate) calf leather strap

or with the grey large-scale alligator when it does not shine too much. George

Here’s an idea.

I put this beige suede on mine for a more casual look. I really enjoy it this way. ...  

Thanks so much!

I've decided...

 By: ecsrun : April 29th, 2021-19:59 go with the grey ostrich (3rd from the right in the second pic) and the dark chocolate strap (bottom pic). At some point I plan to also try one of the blue alligator straps. Thank you everyone for the feedback! I hope the pics help anyone else with ...
