    Check out my NT and tell me what you think

    OK
    So I was bored and frustrated.
    I have not been able to wear my NT for sometime.
    The Ball band is just too big (I wear it on the second to last hole) AND
    I figure Id rather keep it as new IF I ever decide to sell my NT since it doesn't git well anyway.
    So I have not worn the NT and its been bugging me.
    I have been lazy, busy and just spending money elsewhere so I have not found someone to make me the perfect band yet.
    I have been switch back and forth between my Rolex Sea Dweller and Rolex Deep Sea Sea Dweller. Last week I decided to grab a Nato band (black and gray). I LOVE it on the SD it feels GREAT for daily wear (I tend to snag the metal band when working in tight spaces or scratch it and my laptop up with the regular band)
    SO sitting here bored tonight looking at my NT sitting on the table making me feel guilty for not wearing it I decided "Hey! It's REALLY easy to throw on the Nato so what the heck" I thought it would look horrible BUT I must admit I kinda like it! I am tempted to order a solid black and a Black and Orange Nato for it...

    So guys, please be honest... Give it a minute, look it over before you decide and then let me know what you think

    Yeah yeah my pics suck, sorry it was a quick snap with the camera phone

    I really am starting to like Nato bands WOW are they comfortable!

    Looks good JYogi, I am wearing a nato on my Sub Date right now. I think a solid black would be your best option, the bond nato needs a specific watch to look great. Maybe try an Orange nato???

    Re: Check out my NT and tell me what you think

    I just need to find where to get the best NATO straps.
    I like the NATO much more than the Zulu!

    I wanna order up a few as they are SOOOO easy to put on
    a watch!

    I am glad to get positive feedback so far, I thought you guys were
    gonna slam me.

    The only reason I was willing to try the Bond instead of just waiting for a Black
    one is the NT case kinda is between the gray and black in the strap color wise so it
    looks pretty cool!

    What is the spacing on the NT? 20, 22? If I recall I was told to use 22 mm bands??

    I think its 21 but a 22 is suggested. 20 would be too small.

    K that explains it...
    The Rolex Sea Dweller is 20 mm (I am pretty sure)
    so thats why this looks a tad small BUT it will do till
    I find a few others, its just nice to be able to wear the NT!!!!

    Re: Check out my NT and tell me what you think

    continues my theory that nothing looks bad on a zulu or nato...

    the best place to get zulu/natos - maratecs - are at www.broadarrow.net

    they are easy to work with, have a great selection, and ship quick!

    I'm with Ed on this. The Bond NATO looks nice (especially your black/grey as opposed to dark blue/light blue), but the black Night Train really looks best on a black 22mm NATO, IMHO.
