    Bell&Ross BR-X1 forged carbon straps suggestions!

    Hello All,

    I'm new on this forum. What strap color/texture would look nice on the BR-X1 ceramic/forged carbon?

    I've been wearing the watch with the OEM black rubber for some time now and need something new for a change.

    Was thinking a light color canvas/Kevlar texture.

    Here's a quick shot of the watch



    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,
    Laurent

    Congrats on an awesome watch! My favorite of the X1 series so far.

    OEM canvas would be great, maybe in green. Eric also had a great shot of the watch on an OEM brown heritage, which was great. Being mostly black, you've got a lot of options.

    With such a nice piece, many colors will work well.

    That's what I thought i would do. But need to tee how the white rubber would look on this piece before pulling the trigger. White tends to be very critical sometimes. It either works well or looks terrible.

    Highlights lack of BR options
    A red rubber would be awesome

    I'm pulling the trigger on this one for sure

    Any idea from where I can buy it online without visiting an AD? Need to save time since my AD might not have it in stock

    Thanks,
    Laurent

    Well thought about the orange strap but it won't work since there's no orange color on the watch at all.
