Just recieved a nice Breitling Croc Strap to go with my newly acquired Steelfish 44, I know Watch/Strap combo' s are a personal thing and I'm not normally a fan of diver Watches on Leather, but in my opinion this just "works"

It certainly does just "work". It looks superb. I still maintain the original SF is one of the all-time-Breitling greats.

Yes agree, having always been a Breitling fan the Steelfish was always one of my favourite Watches along with the avenger skyland, but never got round to owning either till now, I have two superoceans in my collection now, will post a pic of my other if I have one in my photo gallery on my phone.

It absolutely works -- looks great!


I made a similar choice to go with a croc strap on my SOH...

This looks good too, Breitling have to be one of the best high water resistancy watches to get away with wearing leather, normally I'm not a fan of dive type watches on leather straps.

Steelfish is classic and looks good on almost any type of strep or on the bracelet. It is such a versatile watch. It is still one of my all-time favorite Breitlings.

Matt68, that white dial will work with ANY leather strap you throw at it. As long as it has white stiching. Your brown strap looks superb!
Moana43, I'm really digging that yellow/green combo you got going on. Is the dial blue or black?

Here I am to raise the stakes a bit on bold combo's with my entry :D

Love that combo, Ernesto!

As to your question, the dial on the SOH is black.
