They all go well with this watch, Johnny....but I think the very first one in black with the "croc" finish looks superb!!

Thanks JJ, but its alligator not crocodile. Croc is a tighter, rounder series of panels.

Now vote already.

Love the black calf and the tan calf!

Personally I only like croc's and alligators on radiomirs.

I was just about to send you one, but then I realized, unfortunately your straps are only 24mm and would be too small to fit the radiomir 26mm loop.

Sorry!

I'll probably be the only one to vote for this but my personal favourite is the OEM rubber strap. I think it's a great strap and looks cool both with casual clothes and with more formal wear.

Shane, I have to say the rubber is the most under-rated strap for a Panerai. Very comfy for sure, and never have to worry about taking your watch off if you want to jump in the pool.

Believe me, we can only imagine what you do with sheep and leather straps

Black Gator, makes me rethink my next watch purchase. Maybe a Pan in my future.

Love that black calf-gives it that real "industrial" look. My vintage and cracked black leather straps are on the way from Aaron Tan and seeing your BC strap really makes me wish mine were here!

I have to go with the Black Gator, followed by a very close OEM Rubber.
I seem to be keeping these in my regular lineup, however I prefer you black with white stitching better than the black stitching.
On the Rad's, I prefer the brown Gator.

Tan calf all the way for me pal. I like all of them, but I am just a fan of the historically correct look.

Antique brown for me - lovely strap that is, and the blue right behind. I also like the Black Gator.......

Thanks for the responses guys.

Always good for some fun. The black gator is my current fave not only cuz it looks awesome, but it's also incredibly supple too. I'd say the black calf, blue gator and the rubber get about equal wrist time, with the tan calf and the antique brown getting the least love... but I still really like them .
