Hey All!

I was really excited to add a DW290 to my collection- I'd been looking for a beater and then got sold on this one after seeing TGV's video on it. I love the look of it on a zulu strap, so I ordered one to go with it. But I didn't realize the thickness would be such an issue. I couldn't muscle the spring bars into place no matter what, and I ended up destroying the strap trying to mod it to fit.

My ask is: Please let me know what nato/zulu type straps you've been able to fit on the DW290 without mods. I'd heard an 18mm strap would work, but that was without taking thickness into account. Maybe a 2 piece strap would leave more clearance around the spring bars- that would be cool too as long as it still looks like a zulu.

I've seen lots of pics of other straps on this watch which puzzles me based on how impossible it was to fit this one. So I'm hoping for some foolproof recommendations that have personally worked for you to help me avoid more frustration.
