But seriously, I get no sliding with these straps on either the Spork or the Sumo. I wear 'em fairly snug but not overly so. Now, both my orange and brown NATOs are Maratac's so-called 'MIL-NATO' straps, which are thin and very smooth compared to their other straps. Still, until they get soaked, the watch stays put. Very comfy.
Haha alrighty then
Well I'll see what I'll do. (they first have to deliver it).
Think I'll first try it on it's standard issue ss bracelet for a while, and then, mainly based on your positive feedback (grinn) maybe I'll try it on a nice nutter nato strap.
I'll try to find an even more disturbing one than the all orange one, although that may be a difficult task
I ordered the watch just about 5 minutes ago so we'll see when it arrives
A few more taken today, 7/10:
Well guys the Spork arrived today
Now since we all know what the Spork looks like, and a bunch of beautiful photographs of it have been posted over time, in several threads, I will only post a few shots, to indicate how it fits me (wrist size 8inches) and to show off it's weight.
Anyway here's a brief first impression.
As expected the watch looks terrific and wears very comfortable.
Despite it's 212 grams you pretty soon forget you're wearing this watch.
This is probably due to the good weight distribution between housing and bracelet.
I just had one link removed, now it fits me absolutely perfect!
Although the Spork is now down to 207 grams I'm loving it even more!
I measured a 43 mm bezel diameter and a 33mm crystal diameter.
Which is nicer than my 46mm Apeks/Aqualung which only has a 30mm crystal diameter.
Also this puppy has a bigger lug to lug size which makes it more suited for larger wrists.
And of course there's the sturdy look and build of the watch, everything looks like it's bulletproof, I absolutely love that!

I got my spork with rubber band a week ago. Yesterday, I received the super oyster type II bracelet from tungchoy.com.
(TAT-DIV20-012)Super Oyster Type II for SEIKO Diver SKA367 & SNA371 Band 25 Jewles Rotomatic Watch, Automatic , Manual wind Vintage , slim quartz watch Tungchoy:
One of the bracelet ends was a little big. So, it didn't fit into the lug. I had to sand it.
Anyway, these are the shots taken minutes ago.
I already got some scratches on the crystal. Have any of you installed sapphire crystal on Spork? How much does it cost?
