Snowflake - strap showdown

Still waiting on the repaired bracelet's arrival, but a new batch of straps came in for the test drive!

Watch originally came with the dark brown strap. The Veblenist light brown came in a few days ago (which I love!), and now 3 straps from Watch Gecko have joined the group.

Very happy with all the straps, and pleasantly surprised at how much I like the zulustraps. Not a huge fan of NATOs and the extra bulk at the end, so the zulustrap takes care of that nicely; very comfortable and better looking than what I expected (wife even likes them!). Didn't want to spend the $$ on Erika's Originals, and I'm glad I didn't.

Which do you like best?

Light grey all day. So good with that blue bezel!

Yup - that's the one I spent the most money on (still under $100) and you can see why. It just works so well...definitely my favorite at the moment.

Agreed. The light beige and blue colors are so complimentary. This combo just works in a way that the others don't.

The brown leather with white stitching is really slick.

What is the exact name on the Veblenist website?

I went looking for it but couldn't find one that looked like this.

I have a blue no-date flake that came with a gray leather strap but I like yours better.

Funny you mentioned buying the french style zulustrap. I didnt know those existed and recently purchased an EO strap and then bought two more yesterday. After you mentioned the zulustrap I just bought 2 to try them out also.
