Strap Guide written by @watchillaax. Thank you Daniel!
When I got the Tudor Black Bay 36 I had fewer watches and needed a versatile piece, that I could wear with different outfits from a dressy night out in a suit to a casual situation. I have to say it never disappointed. In my opinion this is one of the most versatile pieces in the watch history and if you ask me, a future classic. I gave it almost 2 years of wear without even taking off the bracelet, because it just kept the watch neutral and easy to pair with anything no matter what I was wearing. But why would you keep such a beautiful dial neutral when you could elevate it and make it stand out with a great strap? I hope the following shots will inspire you to DARE and take off that bracelet on your Black Bay 36 to make it look even more interesting.
Taupe Saffiano Stitchless
Bringing out the dressy side of the BB36 with the luxurious Saffiano leather. This leather has a beautiful texture to it and not only is it very elegant but also resistant to scratches. This taupe colour balances out the colder brighter blue with its neutral and earthy brownish colour very well in my opinion.
Jean Grey Babele Slim
The perfect casual strap for the weekends. Pair it with jeans and a white T-shirt and you have a sporty badass outfit. It has a rough texture but is surprisingly soft and wears like a dream.
Tan Crazy Horse Side-Stitch
This one is a nice vintage strap for the BB36. Time to dress down the Tudor and travel to the Wild Wild West. The colour tone might change over time. That´s what makes it so attractive to me. Can´t wait for this one to develop some patina.
Taupe Epsom Slim
A fresh looking strap with that white stitching. Sporty but also kind of elegant. Everyone needs a classic Epsom strap. Honestly I could leave this on for everyday use as it pairs well with anything. I again went with the Taupe colour here. Just love how it pairs with the everchanging Blue of the Black Bay36.
Cognac Pueblo Slim
Another casual strap with a scratched-like surface. It feels earthy and rustic with a sporty touch of the white stitching. It really is a stunner with the BB36.
