I posted this image in the "Show Us Your Hamiltons" thread, but since I'm in still in the early stages of post-watch acquisition euphoria, I'll repost it here. One thing worth adding is that I like how it doesn't look overwhelming even on my congenitally scrawny 6 1/2" wrist. Ordered a few NATO straps from Barton's that I think will pair nicely with it. I now think I'm officially set for watches for the foreseeable future.

I'm not a nato guy, so didn't care for the stock strap on this one. I tried a few different leather straps but couldn't get past the large gap caused by the lugs. I thought I was going to have to end up selling it but then tried this red rocks canvas. The extra thickness of the strap fills up that gap between case and springbars a little better. Think I might pick up an olive one as well.
I don't think it looks bad on my 7.5" wrist either.
It's kind of ironic, that I bought this 38 mm Khaki because of the brown leather strap. But then decided I not like it, too stiff and not comfortable.
So, I have a simple black leather that I prefer and an extra buckle from another Hamilton.
