    On C&B Supreme single pass NATO. Much better than the throwaway on Amazon that started fraying upon the first wear. It wears very close to the wrist...very nice.

    I have a curved end vulcanized rubber from Cincy Strap Co. and a canvas 2 piece on the way from a guy on Etsy. Still looking for a good leather strap if anyone has recs.

    I may be in the minority but I’ve never been a fan of the nato strap as it takes away the elegance of the piece

    I’m a fan of the Craft & Tailored leather straps. I have both a Nubuck and a Vintage Style and they’re both great quality.

    Rover haven is awesome for cordovan leather. The guy who runs it lets you customize everything down to the stitching color, length, and buckle type. He's made me two and they are both fantastic.

    Same. If it's a beater watch...or maybe a flieger style...I could see it. But otherwise, just not a fan. But to each his own.

    I generally agree, but I think that some watches have the versatility to do both. The Explorer is a great example. It can look classy and elegant on a bracelet, but I think it can also work super casual on a nato with jeans and a hoodie. A Daytona, Royal Oak, etc. would look stupid that way, but Explorers, Subs, Seamasters, etc. can work.

    Speedy works on any strap. It’s insane how flexible it is.

    I’m applying for a role within my company... just noticed in the job description “up to 30% travel to our office in Soluthurn, Switzerland.”

    Apologies on that returned expense report. I’ve acquired a new portable company asset that will ensure I have the correct day and date to prevent this from happening again in the future.
