Yeah, me too. It’s nice to have options though :-)
Where can I get "nice" NATO straps?
I've a few cheap ones and a couple of Straton ones that came with a watch, and they are much nicer (thicker, softer, better hardware) than the cheapies.
Most of their 22mm are unavailable, so looking for alternatives.
Brass hardware a plus but not essential.
I guess it’s a personal thing. Some people claim that Phoenix NATO straps are the best ever, they feel extra cheap to me.
I personally like Bark & Jack NATO’s or George’s straps (there’s few different types too) if I want more funky colours.
+1 for the George straps, great quality for the price and hardware is excellent
What was the reclaimed nylon or seat belt strap a few weeks ago?
Like reclaimed parachute or canvas strap?
Cheers @PawG and @frankohara will check George out and probably grab a couple to try out.
Price seems really good.
Edit: ordered 3 straps, 1 each of french nylon, elastic and thick weave, less than £20 delivered.
I think the blue is best too although while it’s not my bag, it is great value.
This is lovely.
Oh it is! I love the texture on the dial. One of a few watches that look really good with the “fauxtina.
I am seriously tempted to order one .......
Anyone add a nylon / nato watch strap to a Steinhart Ocean One? Is it even possible?
I'm bored of the bracelet.
BB58 does look very good in blue, especially on the fabric strap
I had one of those stretchy £6 jobs on mine for a while - looked ok but I missed the bling and heft.
I'd go rubber diver strap over Nato, personally.
Sure, mine is on a fake Erika strap. I much prefer this to the bracelet actually.
Looks better than expected on here. Dial has an almost blue/grey shift in certain light.
Glad they've done it - nice watch - but I think the gilt still looks better. Would have been great with block markers though.
That's what quite a few are saying. Won't happen as it mixes up too many different elements though between the 58 and Pelagos. Think the sharp triangle marker of the 79090 / 79190 would have stepped it up a bit but won't happen for the same reasons.
Am I not the only one who thinks that Black Bay has really been done to death now ?
It was done to death two or three years ago!
Just counted 66 variations of the Black Bay on the Tudor site!
When bb58 was launched my phone caught fire with all the people emailing and calling . This one nothing so far.
I've had a black PVD hardware Zulu on my Ocean Black from day one, like it a lot...
Don't suppose you still have the link to these fake Erika straps? I've had a little gander but can't find it. Need an 18mm
WatchGecko (where I got mine) doesn't stock them anymore, but you can find them on etsy/ebay/ali-express. Look for "elastic Nato", "french Nato", "marine national strap", etc.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
