I’ve been real into milsubs lately. Wearing a Steiny OVM a lot. And I want to put it on a NATO cause it’s all authentic and everything. And they always look so rad in photos, and it gives you a way to switch up the vibe of your watch quite easily. But I just don’t like em on my wrist. I thought the extra length folded back around would bother me, but that’s not it at all. The nylons just so thin that the strap doesn’t have any depth at all, which makes the watch look strange on my wrist to me. And you have to wear them tight, so there’s really no play at all. Maybe I’m just too used to a metal bracelet.
Anyway, I want to like em, but I just don’t seem to. The only NATO strap I’ve tried is a pretty cheap one. Is there a consensus best manufacturer? Maybe leather? Are two-piece NATO’s just kinda lame?
