I tried this on recently. Didn't like it because of the nato's excess adding bulk. My wrist is 7.5"
I thought that to myself every time I saw one in relation to the nato's excess. Is there any possible way to buy nato's that are custom sized?
Both cool choices. I’ll give you something to think about. If you take aesthetics out of the decision one watch is better and cheaper than the other. So it’s not a difficult choice. But aesthetics are important. So if money is not an issue then you have some thinking to do. I’ve tried on both and they are both really cool.
I asked the boutique the price of the nato strap for this model. It's a shocker coming up to around USD 500. They explained that was because of the titanium parts. Unbelievable.
Wow... You can always just buy the “Craig” Nick Mankey hook strap for $29. I have one for my BB58. That solves the price problem and the excess problem. $500 is insane for a NATO strap. Even $160 that Omega charges for their others.I thought that to myself every time I saw one in relation to the nato's excess. Is there any possible way to buy nato's that are custom sized?
Looks like a great choice as well. Personally, I would choose either PO you have pictured in this thread over the Bond watch. I don’t like watches associated with a fictional character, although I have a standard Diver 300M and love it. The PO has better lume’d hour and minute hands and I think the bezel is better as well. I tried to operate my Diver 300 bezel when it was wet with bare hands and it was literally impossible for me to turn. I also like having a date complication on my watches as I use it quite often. I’m on the lookout for a 45.5mm PO chrono with orange bezel and gray dial.
