    Well sort of Bond. I know in Goldfinger he wore a General Service Corp colours strap [green/black with a red stripe I think] but then I'm not putting the NATO on a vintage Rolex either. But yes it's inspired by that. I really like the grey/black straps even if they're not really like the one worn by Connery & I like the idea of having an all monochrome watch.

    Also I just really liked the look of the blue/yellow & it was free postage on a second strap. I thought it would look equally good on my yellow face Orient Mako. I like the idea of taking the 007 away on holiday with me on a jubilee bracelet along with a spring bar tool & a couple of NATO straps just to make it look different depending on what I'm wearing or doing.

    Is that a bit sad or are we all a bit like that with our watches?

    I haven't picked up the black/grey Bond, cause the alternative kills it, IMO =)

    I do love that, and it sure looks nice on the 007.

    Where did you get yours and how is the quality?

    That's exactly what I did on my last trip to Jamaica. Took my Oris F1 & my 007 on the jubilee & a Bond Nato.

    ^ I'm definitely feeling the nato strap. As much as I'm not a fan of the jubilee bracelet, your picture does make it look good. Jamaica is always fun times. Where did you stay? I'm hoping to hit up Negril the next time around.

    I got it from Gnomon. They are pretty quick to ship if in stock* and its only $5 to ship to the US. I got the strap pictured in August iirc, and its holding up just fine. It is a thinner material (that is to say, thinner than most Zulus that I'm familiar with and basically the same thickness as most NATO) and it tends to put a little bit of a stretch in the hole you use, but I don't feel its in danger of breaking or stretching beyond use. I'm not even inclined to mention it but I'm trying to give honest observations. =)

    I'm sure if its the only band you plan to wear it'll tend to wear quicker but if you have any kind of rotation (even if it's just one other strap) I'm confident it'll last a long while. Even if it wouldn't last as long as a nice thick zulu, the price (don't remember; $14? $18?) is well worth the look imo.

    On this particular strap I've actually cut off the understrap (what TimeFactors, a UK vendor, calls RAF style). Its lighter weight now and wears pretty close to the wrist as, again, the material is thin.

    *quick to ship but delivery is good week or two since they're via Singapore. It seems I've been placing an order with Gnomon monthly since July or August and I'm currently expecting one that was shipped about a week ago. I think this is the second longest wait time. But the longer one was more a result of no one being home to sign for it. I figure the same will happen for this delivery except I haven't gotten the tan USPS card that says I missed delivery. I'm pretty sure that should have come by now.

    We stayed at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay. Great time, very nice place (you can see my review at Tripadvisor, lol)


    I really like the jubilee. It's light, flexible & very comfortable. Here's another shot of the 007 on the jubilee in it's natural environment.

    nice nice!

    can you tell me where you had the dial and bezel work done?

    Looks like a yobokies dial?


    and seperately: i see someone had a white nato strap - are these easy enough to find?

    thanks!!
