I’m thinking more and more on replacing my classic rolex bands with some think leather straps, in order to give it some new look.
The leather straps could be allow for a nice change in the look and feel of the complete watch. I used to make strap changes on and off on my Panerai watches.
I really liked to change from a nylon strap to a thick leather strap, in different colors, just to change the complete look of the watch.
Even Rolex have come out with rubber straps to some of their models, and their TUDOR watches have a complete setup of straps to select from.
