    Welcome to WUS, cloud.

    I'm also a girl, and it's not a look I'd ever sport myself. I won't say they look cheap, just not my style. Other people want to wear them though, that's fine with me.

    I found out about the woven nylon "NATO" & "Zulu" straps a couple of years ago & am now a devotee................cheap(but I don't think they cheapen watch/look etc.), comfy, a few can change look of one watch, dries fairly quick, I wash 'em in the machine, just strap them on to belt loops of pants/jeans...air dry! Try 'em, what have you got zulus(sorry, couldn't resist)

    Re: Nato straps look cheap?

    I love NATOs and zulus! I think you can wear your Subs, Seadwellers, Speedmasters and Seamasters on them with no problem! They may be expensive status symbols now, but they are descended from hard working military, dive, and bomb disposal watches of years gone past. I've gotten some good history from Mike O'Leary's excellent site (I'm sure it's been mentioned here before)... http://www.diving-watch.net/ Wearing those watches on nylon straps like professional divers and astronauts might not mean that you yourself are going caving, diving and extreme mountaineering with your $4000+ watch, but the straps are comfortable, light, replaceable, the always popular feature that if a springbar breaks, you get to keep your watch, and it's a nod to their original purpose as tough dependable timepieces for those at the tip of the spear.

    As far as sheer asthetics, you either like it or you don't. If YOU like it, you keep it that way! Those in the know will appreciate it. I love the look and the purpose-driven function. Low-tech coupled with the wherewithal to get the job done has always appealed to me.
