    GW-2500 on NATO - is it possible?

    I've just ordered a GW-2500B-1AER, with the positive display. It's my first G-Shock, and is intended as a beater and for use when travelling. I like NATO straps - for their comfort, practically and security, and would like to put this watch on one, of possible.

    Can anyone tell me, please, if and how this can be done? What width strap do I need? Does it make the watch sit much higher? And how much does the orange of the dial stand out - should I get a plain black or one with an orange stripe?

    I cant imagine a strap adapter fitting on the GW-2500.
    The "lug" is hmm.. lets say inverted.
    There is a 12-14mm stub in the middle (guessing from my memories) with a hole for the fastening bolt.

    Yes, it can be done - one of the Pathfinder adapters does fit. I think it was either the PAW-1300 or something of similar size. One of the members here has already tried it and it worked - don't know who it was though. I'll try to find it on the forum.

    Thanks, Sedi - I've just ordered the POAW-1300 adaptor from Tiktox - I'm looking forward to trying it out.
