one of the big online nato sellers advertises that their "hardware is 100% stainless, unlike their competitors, that use chromed brass."
cool. i want some of that chromed brass to go with my komradederpskie that i'm stripping. it seems impossible to find an 18mm nato/zulu with brass that isn't a custom job. i'd feel a bit goofy with a watch that cost less than the strap, so i'm looking for the low tech(cost?) solution. any ideas on where to find these 'inferior' products?
