When you wear a watch with the black leather strap, make sure that you match it with your belt and your shoes. They must be black in color as well. This type of watch will go with literally any color of outfit. However, it is best worn with outfits that have dark shades.
A dress watch with a brown leather strap
Do you want to look elegant and business-ready while still maintaining a casual demeanor? Then this is the minimalist watch to wear.

When you are attending events that are have less formality, this is the watch that you should wear. The brown leather strap watch can go with a variety of outfits. It can fit in with completely casual clothes or light colored suits. When wearing this type of watch, let the colors of your outfit be light ones such as beige, grey and light blue. Once again, ensure that you match the color of your belt and your shoes with that of your brown leather strap watch. Brown is a tricky color to work with because it has various shades. Examples of these are coffee, walnut, tan, light and deep brown. As such, ensure that your belt and shoes match the brown on your watch as closely as possible.
