I've got a diver-style sport watch that came with a a black resin/rubber sport band. I'll be picking up a few NATO straps for it because I'm not crazy about the original band. I was also considering getting a band or strap that's a bit dessier or made out of leather. Yea or nay? Any suggestions?

 

Here are some examples:

In January, I bought an Omega Seamaster Aqua-Terra >15,000 Gauss (this now the "Master Coaxial" movement, but the 2013 limited edition was marked as such) and it came with a steel bracelet.  In March, while on vacation in Nice, France, I stopped in the new Omega boutique there and bought a textured leather band with a folding clasp from an Omega DeVile dress watch.  I find that it really 'classed up' an engineer-centric sport watch, and since with my new job I have to wear a suit or at least slacks/shirt/tie most days, I think it was a good move.

The leather will definitely class it up, but don't if you have Submariner look-alike, Bond did rock a '57 sub with a NATO strap in the first couple of films.  You probably definitely want to ditch the rubber though.
