    I had one. The velcro ate the knit cuff of my favorite jacket. Never again.

    I totally agree, I was mostly referring to any uncontrollable situation that may occur. I guess you could make the unforeseen argument about pretty much anything.

    malraux72, I knew a fine gentleman like yourself has great taste! That someone you speak of, if you get a chance remind them that the reason the French still speak French is because of...

    Slapped on the tan leather one yesterday. I like the looks of it but not use to the leather feel just yet.

    Man, brightlings are so pretty. There are too many nice watches. I could easily get obsessed.

    I tried putting the bracelet back on my omega the other day.

    Yeah...can't do it. The NATO straps are so much more comfortable.

    Yeah...I tried to wear my G Shock the other day...I ended up taking it off and leaving it in my car. It's kind of a let down to be honest. I don't like how the nato strap adapters look on G Shocks so I may look into the resin bracelet and see how that feels. I don't think I can go back to the resin band.

    [Link removed] ... google crown and buckle, it will pop up. Great service. And I do not work for them or endorsed in any way, just ordered a basic nato from them a few months ago

    Edited.

    I'm more impressed that the Breitling looks good with any strap! Very nice Puinsai !

    I found this write up very helpful on the three types of straps and how they go on the watch...I'd link the page but it's not an approved domain I gather...


    NATO Straps have an additional strap that slides through the 2 lugs, so you have 2 straps of nylon under the watch, instead of one. It has squared-off buckles.

    ZULU (3-Ring) Straps have only 1 long strap, made of thicker nylon cloth, and has thicker beefier rounded buckles.

    ZULU (5-Ring) Straps is similar in configuration to NATO Straps, except that they're is made of thicker nylon cloth, and have beefier rounded buckles.

    i have a question:

    i have the g-shock gw-9400 "master of g" solar and i want to try and put a nato strap on it. there's nothing wrong with the current (factory) strap, i just wanted to try something different. my question is which size do i get? i was looking on natostraps site and there are several sizes from which to choose.

    i've measured the width of the band where it attaches to the case, and it's about 29 mm (at least, that's what i get when i use a ruler). but i'm not sure if that's the correct place at which to measure for the correct width.

    also, would i need to purchase some extra pins to attach the strap to the case or any adapters or anything like that?

    sorry for all the questions, but i'm a total n00b when it comes to this.

    thanx in advance for any help.
