    I have just gotten two piece natos. And they are very nice

    Hello guys.

    I ordered two two-piece natos for my divers. To be honest I prefer them to the traditional ones.
    What do you think?
    (I know that in case of a broken spring bar the watch will fell but I don't mind as they are much more comfortable)

    They do look nice, and I've had a couple. My new Oris Divers 65 is on the two piece khaki canvas strap like those you've shown. And it is very comfortable.

    The downside to me is that you've got to change them just like a regular strap change, which means digging out the tool and then digging out the spring bars. Regular NATOs are so easy to change, and are more secure, that I'd give them the nod.

    They look good! I'd never even considered dual piece natos....

    They are unexpectedly comfortable.
    And they dont make the watch bulkier which is good for me

    I've got several and like them for the same reasons. It's true that you give up the quick change feature that I like about NATO's, but I have several watches with a tight clearance between lug and case, so the quick change thing is a bust on them, anyway. I just happen to be wearing the Clockwork version that has the leather lining. I know it doesn't make a lot of sense to put leather on a nylon dive strap, but I use them on chrono's that can't handle swimming.

    I prefer them, though not so easy to find ones I like. The true NATOSs are bulkier. I like perlon, and haven't tried a RAF yet.

    Collection: Rolex Submariner 116610 and Explorer 1 mk2; Seikos Orange Monster, Black Monster, 007 (X2), 009, SRPB53, SPB079, and SRP775; Hamiltons Khaki 42mm, Khaki King, and Khaki Filed Auto 40mm; Halios Laguna; 2012 WUS CMW Forum Dual Crown Project Watch; Invicta Pro Diver 8926OB; Casio Pathfinder PAG40; G-Shock GD350, GW7900B-1, DW9052-1BCG.

    On some watches the bulkiness of a traditional nato can bug me at times. The 2 piece Nato looks great.

    I prefer a soft single piece nato so I can get the hardware in the middle of my wrist. If I'm going to use a two piece I tend to go toward canvas, rubber, leather etc.
