I just got a Steinhart Ocean 1 Black, and like many people, I am not a huge can of the clasp. And like many people, I really want this baby on a brown leather nato. I found one that I love from Bas and Lokes, and from what I've heard, they make quality stuff:
"Corbin" Mahagony Handmade Leather One Piece NATO Watch Straps
But before I go spending $80 on a nato, I wanted to know if there were any forum favorites or better value alternatives that I should consider.
Things that are important to me:
- Leather: I really prefer full grain leather (possibly top grain, if it's really really nice)
- Construction: fully tanned, solid and heavy hardware, any stitching should be strong and durable.
- Color: dark-medium brown
