So I never thought I would like a NATO strap, it seemed strange to put a cheap nylon strap on a watch but I have come around. Since I was concerned but feeling it would "cheapen" the look of the watch, which I now see I was wrong about, I purposely looked for what in my view was higher quality NATO's. I loved the hardware on the Toxic and BluShark and their straps are great quality also so the whole thing didn't feel cheap at all. I have never had a NATO with the standard hardware but to me it looks so small and chintzy, but would love to hear why others like it or don't seem to mind it? The one reason I'm guessing is that it gives you way more color options. Below is a picture of my recent purchases, I also bought a leather from Uncle Seiko. So I have two "Bond" black/gray, one Toxic, one BluShark Orca, BluShark original vintage Bond for my srp777 and a BluShark original "blue Bond" for my Orient Blue Mako, I figure I can wear the leather on either.
