Default Baby’s got new shoes

I thought this beauty might look nice on a blue rubber strap. Then I remembered that the original diver, that it was the “reimagination” of, was supplied with a tropic strap. So, since I couldn’t find a blue tropic, I went for the waffle. So, what do you think? Too much blue?

I don’t think that you can go wrong. My 6015 also has a lot of blue. It is broken up more without a colored bezel like yours.

To be frank, a tad too much blue imo. The more neutral black does it more justice. Just my 0.02c

nope - looks great. I have that same waffle on my Pepsi Turtle - probably the most comfortable strap I won. Looks great Kat ....

Personally, I try to like the Z -straps but can't. They aways get taken off and replaced.

I think it looks great, matches up beautifully......blue with blue gives it modern look with a classic design.....I think it works better than a black strap.

I prefer black over blue and metal over rubber.

I have the metal bracelet, but like to switch it up. The bracelet is nice, but makes the watch very heavy. It is much more comfortable on a rubber strap.

+1. Not that I'm a diver watch guy, but the few I have are on rubber straps - too heavy on bracelets and easier to clean off after use on a strap ....
