The rubber strap is definitely nice. The canvas straps aren’t on the level of Micah’s or what I would imagine Drew’s are like but they’re fine. These are begging to be put on natos or mn straps anyway.

Not a question of nice. The straps I've seen all look cheap. That's all.

I don't expect much from straps that are included with a watch under 1k. But if these are the same straps I saw at Wind Up last year I wouldn't call them cheap. Cheap is the shit you get from cheapnatostraps.com I will call them middle of the road for not being a custom strap. :thumbsup:

Maybe i don't know what the hell I am talking about. But Halios and cheap don't go together I am afraid.

Maybe it's the color choices they used that just looks bad to me.

You got two canvas and one rubber?I only got the rubber and an ugly orange strap.
Orange strap with an orange dial? Sounds like too much orange to me. Should have been black or charcoal.

I got a blue strap and a rubber one with my DLC pastel. Probably won't use the blue like said above about the orange,a bit too much blue

I think you are right on it being the color choices.

Matching the straps to the dial is definitely not a good idea imo.

But I bet hipsters love that shit.

but matching straps to dials (or GMT hands) is what a lot of people do with natos or straps. there was a thread on the main forum about the crafter blue strap to match the blue pelagos, didn't have a negative comment on it. :shrug:

to each their own. i like the light blue canvas on the pastel blue seaforth.

Some times it works. I don't mind the blue on blue as much as the all orange look, which is just awful.

I agree. I think that blue on blue looks good on the Seaforth. I haven’t seen my orange Seaforth yet, so I’m reserving final judgement until I do, but I use to have an Orange monster and put it on an orange NATO and it was way to much. I found one of the black NATOs with the grey/orange stripes in the middle and that toned it down a lot.

hey, i'm with you that it doesn't always work. just not with "matching the straps to the dial is definitely not a good idea."

and i think orange is probably harder to get right than the pastel blue. it's a more volatile color.

I like the blue. Think an orange band works well with something subtle like an orange minute hand.

The orange is much darker in person.

for me personally matching a strap to an accent color on a dial works. but matching a solid colored strap to a whole dial does not.

Ugh, wish it came with a black strap instead. I’ll see what I have in my strap drawer or maybe just flip it. I’m not feeling it on the orange.

I bet any sub knock off bracelet would work on the Seaforth.

This dial is the most attractive of the bunch I feel.

the bond bracelet looks good. i've seen them on a few others on IG and asked.

Hadley Roma MB4216
Ginault bracelet
strapcode shark mesh

feel like i saw it on one other one, too, but can't find the reference. i'm vaguely tempted by the hadley roma.
