Oddly, both are not leather:

The OEM strap, seemingly natural rubber. It's the summer strap variant for me. I prefer it on a thick leather strap.

Image

I like this combo for a variety of reasons: coordination, flow, comfort.

Favourite is the one on the Casio Databank cos my daughter made it for me years ago when she was a child around the time Rainbow Loom was in.

Least favourite is the one on the Svalbard. They say you get what you pay for, and I didn't pay much for this Lake House 2-piece before they went under. The cuts and finishing on that one is...meh. Love the one-hander the strap is on though.

What's your least favorite watch/strap combo you've got?
Least favorite is tough but I’d say this

Colors do not compliment. The texture of the strap is too soft for the watch design. The strap itself needs some contrast stitching too.
