    Bracelet or Nato to make Watch look smaller?

    I recently bought an Omega Seamaster 300 MC and I absolutely love it. I would like to wear it on a NATO, but ist 41mm seem to be on the larger side for my wrist - at least on the bracelet.
    I really would like to try the nato, but I'm unsure if it will make the watch look even bigger...
    So... what would you reccommend?

    Being thinner, the NATO might make the watch look larger, but since they’re so inexpensive, it’s worth trying out one (or a few). Also check out Zulus, which are a bit beefier.

    Another observation: if the new watch seems large now, it will “shrink” very soon. Years ago I bought a 39mm watch and initially thought it was HUGE.

    I feel bracelets usually make a watch seem larger, as the end links jut out a bit straighter adding to the length, versus a NATO/strap that's more pliable.

    BluShark has some NATO straps that are adjustable in length so you don't get that extra material at the end of the strap. Might be a good way to split the difference.

    Also, you can get canvas, perlon and two-piece nylon straps which can accomplish the same thing.

    A Nato should give the optical appearance of a smaller watch, IMHO, so you might try one to see if you like it.
