Armida A1 on vintage Dangerous9 Antique Walnut

(click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers, As many of you know, I've really been enjoying new newly acquired Armida A1 Dive watch. for the last couple of weeks I've been wearing it on my Dangerous9 exclusive Moss Gray Nubuck Shark skin strap with Emergency Orange Stitching, which I think is just about the perfect strap for this watch. But, everyone needs to change things up now and then. With that in mind, I had a vintage 2010 Antique Walnut strap in my personal collection that I used to wear on my Revue Thommen Diver, but had been switched out a while ago and that I hadn't been wearing for a while. This is one of my favorite brown leather straps, but was stitched in black 7 ply Irish linen and the black stitching just didn't "pop" for me on the Armida. And so it was re-stitching time. I see no sense in building a whole new strap, If I've got a strap I love that can be made to work in a lot less time and effort. Here are the results. I think it looks really great re-stitched a pale yellow braided nylon that's just about the perfect match for the bezel and dial markers and still retains it's vintage leather feel and I think it's perfect for fall:
