SBGA413 Incoming- Need Strap Advice

Hello All
So my AD called and is sending me my SBGA413. Need advice on a strap and deployment clasp that will accent/ bring out the pink hue of the dial.
Thank you in advance
This is like fun but hard for me... I am really color blind and have little fashion sense... or so I'm told...

Congrats. It is a lovely reference. I put mine on a Hodinkee calf skin strap.

I also just got a SBGA413 and was curious about straps as well. Such a ridiculously gorgeous piece!

I'm following this thread because I'm in the same situation. My GS clasp just arrived and now I need a suitable strap for my SBGA413.
The greige looks nice.

My custom strap is finished and hopefully will arrive soon (but likely a couple of weeks). I’ll post pics when ready.

Light Blue with white thread leather would look good, or crocodile/alligator in blue and white thread

Just got my new strap in. I took a chance on the color and stitching but I like it so far.

I just got this watch today. WOW. I mean I guess I’m a bit of a newbie when it comes to horology, but I can say that after owning a few rolexes, breitling, nomos, etc — this is the nicest watch I have seen in person. Absolutely beautiful.

Would you guys mind sharing with me where you got your GS buckles, I’d like to get a deployment as well if they make one.

Aint cheap, but perfect fit on the GS if they make one for that specific case.

My sense is black alligator might work well on that watch.

What buckle did you use and where did you source it?

I ordered the deployant clasp from the Grand Seiko boutique. It's stainless, which doesn't really match the case material, but I think it works well. Plus, it's far less expensive than the titanium deployant.
