Black is an universal colour that matches well with any watch material eg Gold, Steel etc for any occasion. But it'd be dull if all your watches come in black strap. Moreover Patek mentioned 'Create Your Own Tradition'. Exotic Skin is beautiful especially Croc or Alligator. Snake, Ostrich, & Lizard are nice too. You'll be a class above.
Following are my Exotic Skin, Exotic Colour Collection:
Snake Skin, Cobra, for Year of the Snake 2013! The exotic skin shop in Bangkok didn't have the right tool to handle Rolex so i went to a watch service shop in Central World Plaza whom i know might be of help. Gosh! The mall was so big that although i remembered it's in the basement, I actually went to the wrong zone & got the wrong shop! Well that guy called Tang did a great job, & FREE he said. To repay his kindness, i bought him an organic drink. He does total Watch Service & Repair. You can look him up at Time Store, Central World, Zen Zone A, B1.

My 1st Vintage Watch, Brown Croc Skin on a Longines Tank
The salesgirl told me the Green colour matches well with this Limited Edition Green Logo of Frederique Constant. Beautiful Grain of the Croc.
How about White, Blue, Purple or Silver Strap? Take up the Challenge! Pink is ok too.
Happy Watching, 27/6/13, 6.00pm
