    I appreciate a NATO for swimming and snorkeling. I swam today with a NATO and it works well, dries fast and has that second layer of protection if a springbar fails. I was in 20' of water in a lake so I think about these things when I dive in which is often. I was wearing one of my Vostoks that stays on a NATO.

    I swim and spend time in the surf with my SKX as well but I think twice given that I keep it on a bracelet. For whatever reason, I feel more comfortable with a silicon strap than a bracelet. Both are susceptible to the same type of failure so it makes no sense.

    Just my two cents - no real point I guess.

    And a pic because I like pics more than anything else. I just love viewing watches, especially dive watches.

    Salt_Water I don't have any data on spring bars durability. That what I see good quality spring bars are more durable then chinese. Of course salt water is more destructive than fresh water ;)
