    Re: Nato straps look cheap?

    I love Nato's , especially the ones made by Maratac. They are super comfortable.
    I put one on my PO because i wanted it as a daily watch and the bracelet is just a bit too dressy for my taste.
    The only thing i don't like is when they get wet they tend to feel like wearing a wet t-shirt and take some time to dry.

    They are pretty cheap looking but I think that adds to their purpose and charm.

    It is what it is...functional. Who cares what others think. Most people don't know you're wearing a plus $1000.00 watch let alone a inexpensive wrist band. John Wilson

    I like the woven nylon NATO & Zulu straps! I don't think they make a watch look cheap! It's ok that non-WIS folks don't appreciate 'em....at least a million people aren't wearing them...makes it more unique.

    I don't mind people not recognizing my watch, in fact I couldn't care less, but it did hurt me dearly when she said the watch looked cheap because of the strap... just when the affair between my nato and I just started

    They are just soooo comfortable...

    I'd rather people not recognize my watch at all. And I don't care what non-WISes think.

    At this point, I've seen enough bling and fake bling to realize that other people's style opinions -- especially the uninformed -- really don't matter. Going stealth is the best way to fly through life.

    It makes the occasional WIS recognition all the more exciting.

    Totally agree with u, that's why I wear my bond on a NATO bond, and only wear the bracelet for semi-formal situations

    I agree...

    I'm not a big fan of the NATO or other web straps. They look like something that holds down the batteries on my boat... or something that someone made from an old ratchet strap.

    Perhaps I'm too much of a traditionalist. metal or Alligator.

    Now before anybody gets in a tizzy, I take back the ratchet strap comment The NATO straps look nice, they're just not my cup of tea.
