    Any Nato/Zulu recommendations for UX and 900?

    Hi all,

    Iíve got a UX and 900 that Iím thinking to try Nato or Zulu on.

    A couple points:

    1) Currently I have Erikaís MNs and Strapcode Perlons. Both of these are just thick enough to be snug under my 2mm spring bars. So Iím worried about Natos being too thick. I know I can go thinner, or even curved spring bars. But am looking for others experience with strap thickness.

    2) I like the fact that these straps secure the watch even if one spring bar fails, so Iíd rather not choose a Nato with a spring bar in the buckle.

    I have googled, but my goodness, there are gobs of Nato brands.

    Iím looking for quality too, donít mind the price. Itís keeping my Sinn off the pavement after all.

    Hereís a shot of an Erikaís with 2mm shoulder less bars on the back of my UX, really feel secure with this setup.

    I’m heavily biased ;)

    but.... ToxicNATO’s Shiznits are awesome straps. Even his “regular “ are great. The “ Rogue” is excellent as well!

    Excellent hardware in brushed or PVD and the beveled keepers are very cool.


    I think I own 20+ of Terry’s straps ;o

    Great thanks! White uno zulu on its way to see how that looks on the 900.

    I'm personally a big fan of Cincy Strap Works natos. I have bought a number of them and they have served me very well and still look almost new even after years of daily use. My favorites from Cincy are the seat belt for a more refined look or the "premium" for a more durable/rugged/daily strap.
