    1st thing I did when I got home last night was switch the stock strap for a NATO. Think it looks much better now.

    ^ I don't think the bond nato with pvd hardware works on this IMO.

    polished hardware would've been better, but I already had this strap, so........

    The following is just my personal opinion:
    No, I meant that strap doesn't look right on the green Alpinist. The olive bond nato only works on black dial diver type watches, there is nothing black in the Alpinist dial, just green and gold (which is why its hard to find a strap for it). I tried the same bond nato on my yellow Mako and it didn't look right.


    In contrast, this looks decent, but it would look even better on a black submariner-style diver.



    I am still looking for the right nato strap which does to the Alpinist what the following zulu strap does to the yellow Mako:

    oh, ok....to me I think the green in the NATO works perfectly with the green dial....

    I also disagree that NATO's only work on divers. I actually got this one for my Speedy Pro & again, I really like it. But to me, this is one of those straps that I feel works well on anything.

    It has finally arrived. Chino did a great job..this is my second watch in less than a month from Chino (the other was a tuna can 015).

    This watch is really impressive and it is heading for the Rocky Mountains next weekend.. It will be in its habitat.

    For now, a couple of quick pictures..
