    Rubber Nato/one piece straps

    Been looking for a 22mm rubber nato, BC has them only in 20, emailed them before, never got a reply, found these Hand made Black/Green NATO PVD Zulu-yellowdogwatchstraps.com was wondering if anyone had any experience with them, or knew where I could get rubber to make my own? I'd prefer a different style buckle, and keeper, more like a RAF but rubber.

    Re: Rubber Nato

    They actually make rubber natos on 22mm but they haven't made them available thru their retailers that I know of. Last I emailed them in 2014, rep said it'd be a few months only but not yet

    Thanks, I was thinking they'd just make Model 298 in 22 but I guess not. I'll have to e-mail them again then and see if there's a new date.

    Re: Rubber Nato

    That Yellow Dog rubber NATO is 2mm thick, which I think may be too thick to slide through the gap between the case and the spring bars on many watches. I have a leather zulu strap that is about 1.5-1.75mm, and it is a tight fit on my Sinn 104. Obviously, watches vary somewhat in terms of clearance, but 2mm is pushing it. Thinner spring bars may or may not solve the problem. Just something to keep in mind.

    If still interested, The BC rubber nato model 328 are already available, in black 22mm, at WatchGecko. I just placed my order. I want to try it on my Tudor BB and Seiko 6309-7040 (when it comes back from the spa)

    Cheers

    I have that strap on a Breitling and it is very comfortable and well made.

    Would you mind posting some pictures? I'd like to see how the fold over end looks like. Thanks
