Midweek Modness: 1970s Glashütte GUB Watch

I have a lot of 1970s watches. You don’t have to be a psychologist to suss out that the 1970s was the decade of my childhood and therefore the period I am most nostalgic for. One of the problems I have is finding a strap that suits the small florenteened and textured dials of the era. I think I’ve tried out ten different watches on this butch black suede military strap. And I was satisfied with this pairing. But then I saw a picture of Anna Wintour wearing a vintage Cartier Cloche watch on a coloured strap and I was tempted to switch to an emerald-green leather faux alligator.
