So my AD gifted me two great Sabrina straps. One is a wonderful brown and has found a home a Lange double split. This other one is a grey that I am unsure of:

I thought the Zeitwerk Stricking would have enough silver and white on the dial for it to work but not so sure. What are your thoughts?

Unfortunately I don’t have a white dial watch for this to work with in this strap size.

Lovely strap....just not sure of it with the Zeitwerk. The Zeitwerk's dial is so clean and monochromatic I just think that strap is too understated and washed out for it. As I say, it's a lovely strap, just not for that watch.

Nice strap, just not for that watch, imo, the black and brown just do not go well together. Have you tried the grey strap on the watch?

I’ll echo these thoughts. Not a combo that works particularly well, in my view.

I agree with the others. That's strap does not go with that watch. Lovely strap and amazing watch, but the combo just doesn't go

I actually kind of like that combo... :) Of course, I may not be the best reference as indicated by what I'm wearing today... :roll:
Best,
Ron
