I don't have any nato straps, but I have a few leather, sailcloth ones, I'll upload some pictures later today.

I ordered it a couple of weeks ago and got in before the pre order date was pushed back.
It's a great looking watch, the lack of visible crown was a bit odd when I first put it on, but in the few hours Its been on my wrist It's really grown on me. The carbon looks fantastic, just got to work out what straps will work with it.
Seriously cool looking watch! Gz on purchase

For me the winners so far are the tropic and the hybrid it came on. I have a black leather vintage strap inbound that could work, and I'm thinking the CW black canvas may be worth a shot..I have never been a fan of natos so cant show any..sorry.

The leather strap in whisky colour does it for me, perhaps a version with black stitching would work well?
Thanks, it is now on my order list, hopefully delivered before the big day?
Keep well,

Yep, looks the absolute business on the brown leather. You can over-do black.

That looks like a 'proper job' on the #tide strap (although for an Airborne Regiment isn't a dive watch strap a bit of an oxymoron). :-k :-k

Didn't have mine long but when I was tracking the s/day, it was around +2 to +3 but now I'm getting all -1 or -3, is that normal? The timegrapher supports the same.

A new watch can take a few days to settle in. You should have a clearer idea of what to expect after a week.
I wouldn't be concerned.

What I noticed with my model is a small "ridge" right where the case flank starts. Anyone of you guys seeing that as well? Looks almost like the flanks were glued to the middle part?

Hi,
The only ridge I can see on mine is where the bezel meets the mid case, the actual case is a one piece injection moulded affair..

So you don't see something like this on your model? Would you mind taking a picture?

I couldn't get any closer and stay in focus, but if you zoom in its pretty clear.
All I'm seeing on mine is a smooth bevelled edge, its definitely a one piece mid case.
Hope this helps.

If that's a machined chamfer it's possible the cutter was damaged when it was doing yours as David's chamfer looks bigger as well as being clean, but that could just be a shadow.
