Strap Guide written by @watches_explorer
To talk a bit about the watch before the straps, Baltic is a brand I've been following since the very beginning, and I'm quite a fan. When I saw the announcement of the Hermétique Tourer model, I immediately fell in love, especially with the green dial, which I would describe as both deep and vintage. Moreover, it has a special significance as it is a gift from my wife.
It's funny because you'll discover through this guide that I've selected unexpected straps colours for this watch, and depending on the strap I pair it with, the dial gives the impression of being more or less dark.
Its 37mm diameter allows it to perfectly fit every wrist, and its integrated crown adds a touch of elegance and simplicity.
For information, my wrist measures 17.5cm/6.9", and all the straps are made for watches with a 20mm lug width.
What a beautiful strap with its incredible texture and grain. This gold colour will bring light to any watch it's paired with. The stitches are discreet and luminous as well. It's truly a strap that knows how to showcase the watch and gives it a very elegant touch.
This strap is super soft and flexible, and I've enjoyed wearing it every time.
It's impossible not to notice how this golden-brown colour forms a sublime combo with the green Hermetique Tourer.
I think I'm not the first, and I won't be the last, to praise the merits of the Delugs Rubber CTS strap. Whether it's the quality of FKM, its flexibility, or even the uniquely designed deployant clasp, you can't help but be delighted when you receive this strap.
And this baby blue, let's talk about it. A very versatile blue that works really well with casual outfits. It makes you want to be in summer, with a field watch on your wrist (and what a field watch this Baltic is), ready for an adventure. The blue of the strap and the green of the dial form a clever and unique blend. What do you think?
Firstly, it should be known that Saffiano leather is synonymous with beauty and luxury. And this strap is no exception. What a beautiful piece once you hold it in your hand! This seamless design is a pure joy for the eyes but also for the wrist as it is comfortable.
You might think that this green doesn't match that of the Hermétique Tourer dial, and yet! Instead of creating a combination with different shades of the same green, this green adds a touch of excitement to this combination, which I find super original.
Now, this one has been the strap + watch combo that received the most compliments for me. You could almost think this bracelet was designed for this watch.
In addition to working exceptionally well with this dial, the Alcantara is just a delight once on the wrist. It's soft, it's smooth, and depending on the light, it reveals either a beautiful texture or an unexpected dark side.
It enhances every watch it's paired with.
And finally, the Natural Pueblo Slim strap. As soon as you take it out of its pouch, you get the feeling that this strap has already had some life, and it's super pleasant. You can feel all the effort put into achieving such a high level of quality.
I loved having a very natural colour of leather, and it can dress up this field watch to face everyday life but can also be worn with a more chic outfit on another dial.
This one will follow me on all my watches with a 20mm lug width, and I can't wait for it to develop even more patina!
