    How does your Zulu or Nato fit?

    So how well does your Nato or Zulu strap fit on your wrist with a kobold? What I mean is, I am a big fan of Nato and Zulu straps, but when I put I had them on the old Rolex Subs I used to own, they made the watch IMHO stand up to much on the wrist. With the Kobold flatter back case and the way the kobold lugs are deigned how is the fit? Cheers!

    I wore my chrono on a Zulu most of the time. The longer lugs make Kobold watches perfect for Zulu straps. By comparions, my Kobold wore better on a Zulu than the Submariner on a Nato.

    If you like straps, have no worries.

    Thanks for the feedback Kev. I am going to call Mike Kobold and order a Kobold as soon as I get back to Afghanistan! (in Qatar right now for a couple of days then on to Malaysia and Cambodia for a couple of weeks) Cheers.

    Congrats!!! Here is a picture on a Zulu for you. . . notice how the longer lugs make it perfect for a Zulu strap.

    Be sure to post photos of your new/first Kobold!

    I wonder if it will also be possible for me to get the Phantom with a one peice SS bezel like on the Soarway diver? Both are 41mm? Hmmm have to talk with Kobold on that. Phantom with brushed SS case, bezel, and bracelet and Arabic Numbers and maybe OD Green instead of Red on the hands.

    Kind of like the Idea that Kobold, with additional cost, customize for you. Makes a one of a kind watch.

    Leopardprey...

    Just a small point/observation for what it's worth. At least in my experience, if you wear your watch on the inside of your wrist, you can comfortably wear a larger watch than you might otherwise be able to carry off when worn on the top of the wrist as most folks do.

    I'm ex-military and have always worn my watch on the inside of my wrist. I wear my SMG-1 that way (currently back in PA for a few adjustments) and while a one-piece band certainly does add to the thickness of the stack, it still rides both well and comfortably for me. Most all my watches ride on zulus that I get from country.comm.

    Stay safe and thanks for your service to your country & fellow citizens.


    Regards From Colorado,

    Hey Tony, great points.

    What site do you order your zulus from? I tried www.country.com, and it redirects me to CMT's site.
