    Show me your Nato Straps

    I have had the JCrew Timex for a few years but still have the olive strap it came with. I really want to get a few strap. JCrew has some cool options but I want to know what else is out there that will fit this watch. I would love a striped band in the Italian colors (with the blue, read, green and white.


    First two are from and the last is the real Bond strap from Corvus, all on my Orient Snorkeler. I have bunches more but thats what I easily found photos of.



      Here's mine, from too. I don't recall seeing 18mm straps like you need, but you could take a look.



        I'm hoping someone can recommend a good source for leather and suede NATOs.



          @Vespa -- from Joe:



            I got a few leather and striped NATO straps from Crown and Buckle:

            $12-$18 + 15% discount code: watchuseek



              I plan on getting a few when I finally break down and buy an Orient Ray. But I've heard very good things about these straps (and plan to buy from this site when the time comes).




                Can you dig it?




                  @Rod, I dig those.

                  For what its worth, I get a lot more wear out of my solid colored NATOs.

                  I really want a red suede NATO strap:

         $80? yeah right.

                  I just came across this article on how to make your own leather NATO. Pretty straight forward if you think about it, I think I'm gonna buy some red suede and give it a try.




                    Currently, I have 3 watches on Nato/Nylon straps:


                    Left to right: Alpha, Alpha, Zodiac.

                    The strap on the Zodiac is to small at 20mm, it needs a 22mm to fit properly.




                      its a corvus shell cordovan leather nato strap on a laco type b.



                        This is my current go-to strap for my weekend watch.


                        All of the Ivy's are covered, and this one happens to match my own school colors (Gig 'em).

                        There's a huge wormhole you can fall into with these. Heaven help us.
