I don't much like Nato straps, but I think it is fine for CW to offer them. I also agree that they should be a few quid less than the leather option.

I quite like Natos as they give a sporty look - and I find them comfortable. They also provide a change of look!

I wear NATOs on quite a few of my watches. They're comfortable and rugged.
But yes, they should be £20 cheaper than a decent leather strap and I'd prefer to buy a watch on a bracelet and buy straps, especially NATOs, afterwards.

Great that CW are offering NATOs, but for the the same price as a leather strap that retails for £35....?

I noticed the C60/Nato is now £15 cheaper than the C60/Rubber or C60/Leather combinations.

Not really, just a bit shocked that it took 6 days for CW to realise the error of his ways. :lol:

I think that military watches look great on a Nato:

This also goes well with my suit. I have a Traser on one too. Certainly helps when doing milsim (my hobby >>) and I need to wear the watch over gloves.
