A little less blue..

Changed the blue strap on the rattrapante to an olive green suede to allow the dial to be showcased. What do you guys think?

I, for one, totally love it!!

What a properly 'moody' combo with such rich yet toned-down colors........

I agree, the tone is a bit muted and moodyπŸ‘

Felt like it had too much blue going on before. But the forest green almost makes it look a bit rugged, which I like.

The strap is beautiful, needless to say that the watch is, too, but I am not sure... I would maybe have seen a light gray one?

I was thinking of a light grey with blue stitch, but I felt that it would not pop enough.

Maybe I should have one made though.

Yes, try, I think it may help the dial to pop...

I think it looks better than the original photo.

Oh yes! Great pictures.

I like green

However this combo does not work for me. I would try beige. Nice Elvis πŸ˜‰

Well to each their own, right? Good eye on the Elvis, love that pen, good weight.

Looks good, I love all things Mont Blanc, especially

your pen case.

Thanks Thomas, you need an equally good case to carry a fine pen, right?

Normally i think this combo could work but it could the lighting here as i recall this dial being a bit lighter from memory

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 6th, 2022-16:55
Here is a blue dial green strap i had tried which i enjoyed a few months back...So i think it can work but may not be for everyone licking.  On yours i must say I could not resist an orange strap, a baby blue strap, and also a dark blue with orange stitching strap

I agree the lighting is off, it was taken at night over my dining room table.

 By: jp884 : May 6th, 2022-17:20
In the day it looks much nicer, I might order an orange strap for the summersmile Nice GS BTW.

Thanks! Orange will look amazing on yours!

Here are some daylight shots, definitely looks better in the light.

 By: jp884 : May 7th, 2022-17:08

I think it looks cool!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 7th, 2022-20:10

Nice strap and certainly does bring a lot more attention to the dial!

Thank you so much!
