    Great comparison, thanks for doing this, it really helps to figure this out although I still might need all of them ;)

    just found this thread. Excellent! Am debating what to get too.

    Passing up on the Blusharks for sure as I dont think the big buckle and rectangle holes do justice for any of my watches. A bit too much of a "beefy" look for something like my speedmaster.

    Now what to choose?

    The choice is simple: PhenomeNato. Of course, I am biased.

    Thanks for the pics!. How long have you had yours? Daily beater? Curious about how those holes will hold up under a daily-beater type load.

    They have only been out for about a month so no one has any long term wear experience

    I've had mine for 2 months and have had the blue one maybe 15 times with several watches. You couldn't tell by the hole though. Looks like it's been used once.

    Haven't used the black one and only used the grey 4-5 times.

    Definitely daily beater capable that'll hold up, in my experience. I have 4 more coming so I don't have to keep swapping them and just leave them permanently on certain pieces.

    not bad. i may hop on the boat with the blue one as no one else has that sort of color. Will wait this one out though to see if anyone has daily-beater long term thoughts on this. So far by the likes what you are saying it seems like a quality product.

    Like CastorTroy said, they have only been out a short while.

    I have a couple of different watches that get worn regularly, and they are different sizes (20 and 22mm lugs). I also have way too many straps. The result is that no strap is worn too long at any time. That said, I also don't care too much about the condition of the buckle holes. If they stretch a little, which is inevitable, that's the way it works....Since "the holes" are on the inside of my wrist, no one knows about the condition except me.
