I have finally stepped up from Orient/Seiko to an Omega Seamaster. I really like NATO straps but have an issue with lengths. My wrist is right at 7 3/8" around and every time I set up a NATO, just to have the main buckle in the middle of the bottom of my wrist, I have to push the watch so its basically touching the keeper at the end of the strap underneath. Hopefully that makes sense?

Is there an answer for this?

Also, that brands are recommended here that I can get off Amazon?

Thanks WUS!

NATOs are designed to have the keepers and hardware on the side of your wrist, not underneath. If you want it underneath you can buy or modify your strap as a single layer version, removing the second layer of nylon that "captures" the watch head in a certain position. Then you can position the hardware wherever you'd like it.

Now that I realise that the design of NATOs and in particular ZULUs is to keep the hardware at the side, not under you wrist, I find it quite appealing.
