What a difference a strap makes !

Here on my 150th anniversary IWC Portuguese Chronograph with its vibrant blue lacquered dial.

The new Epsom "cognac" strap literally makes the dial color explode.

And as a comparison on the original alligator black strap : pretty boring isn't it?

Some contrast can be the perfect way to bring the dial to light!

Many thanks!

I tried a very similar shade with my old Zenith EP blue dial, with a Bulang and Sons strap. As illustrated on your IWC, I think that contrast works extremely well. Well done

No comparison. You have nailed it!

Makes it a much more exciting watch I think. Enjoy! Bravo!
