I have one of these Barton Espresso Leather straps that I think looks great with a silver dial watch but I know you're hoping to avoid brown leather so maybe the blue or red leather would work.

Over in the "Show off your collection" thread they were discussing tweed herringbone straps. I think that could work as well.

Btw, I can't find the *show off your collection* thread, may someone please show me? Thanks.

On suggestion from yinzburgher, I went ahead and ordered a tweed herringbone strap.
I like it a lot.

Will likely remain on the hunt for other options, but this is a good look.

For the record, have been in communication with Andrea from Martu.
But nothing she has in stock now piques my interest so she is supposed to get back to me when she finds something interesting from her leather supplier.
Share the link on the blue tweed herringbone strap?

Thanks

Has anyone found the tweed straps in Europe? The Amazon seller does not appear to ship outside the U.S...

Try aliexpress, I think they ship to Europe. Just search EACHE strap.
