    Unhappy Do wire lugs look good with nato straps? I can find almost no pictures

    maybe the fake wire lugs

    but I think a nato strap would look decent

    any pics you guys have handy?

    I don't have any pictures, but, it can really depend on the case of the watch. I've seen them on Panerai Radiomirs and they look great. The thing you have to be careful of is with a wire lug, it allows the strap to potentially shift off the of the spring bar and onto the lug itself, which can look bad and expose the spring bar. However, with many watches the strap is a friction fit between the case and the lug, so it's not really going to be moving anyways.
