    Leather nato

    I traded a buddy some spare parts for a leather NATO strap he created out of a old belt and some Steel he had laying around. It's pretty gnarly looking. The stitching is tight and you can really see the badassery in the design. I put one of my cheap Sottomario's on it. I wanted to put a nice looking watch on a Frankenstein band. I'm extremely happy with the out come. I need to do a little tweaking to fit the watch perfectly (he didn't have the watch when making the band).

    Heres the out come. I will post more pictures when I get it to sit perfect

    Thanks for the nice review.
    I'll forward all the pics I have from it's inception. I can't post pics w/ my phone
    The chrono bezel has been plated. I retro'd with a modern military dial I aged. Gonna ditch the quartz mov't and put in an old mech. The case has a surprise in store, yet to be done. I am designing a bund style NATO for it. It is gonna be crazy.

    Pretty cool. I like making watch bands out of old straps laying around the house too.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.
