New strap on 15400r

Change of pace...something different. What’s the verdict?

I’m lukewarm. Don’t exactly hate, but I don’t like it either.

Brown or black for the model is perfect.

Another angle. Color changes depending on the light

I'd prefer if there was a blue pointer from the dial, so black, brown and grey for me.

That looks better for sure, but still not crazy about it.

I like it, but I like the brown and black more on this dial.

Looking good. It depends as well on the attire you will have on you when you wear blue strap. Usually you want to match the strap with your shoes and similar ...

I have quite a few straps for most of my watches to fit with how I am dressed. An exception is my 5711/1A where Patek is quite restrictive and does not offer any strap alternatives.

This is kinda how I was thinking also. ...

I do agree the brown and black strap work best overall.

Nice! Have you polished the deployant buckle? They get scratched easy. Had mine for 1.5 months and wear with care, still get scratched :(

I think Brown looks better... you should just sell me the blue strap!

AP begs to differ!



I like the strap. Not as an every day thing, but a bold choice.

Are there any other colors available for the straps? I have seen rubber straps available for the 15400.OR black dial, but not much for the silver/white dial version. I saw a picture of a grey rubber strap on social media but have not seen them on sale as of yet.
