Yes this would work with either of the 2x hardware options but the PVD (Black) hardware option is always more fun as it gives a much more dramatic look and contrast to the leather. At these prices you could also consider trying one of each leather color and swapping straps (without tools) which is always a smart idea. We like to say this analogy is just like shoes, if you wear the same pair of shoes everyday you will wear that one pair out much faster vs rotating the 2+ pairs every few days. Regardless of what you choose, they will all look very good on this watch. If you need anything else, please let us know.
