one of the things i found works well to hide that flap just a little bit more (and that i tried because that timefactors nato is *really* snug to fold the flap back through) is to pull up through, then around and tuck back into the first piece.

not sure if that makes sense, perhaps this picture describes it slightly better.

Greg, I also tried this method recently and it worked so well I do this on ALL nato straps now - its my standard style.
Particularly good when the strap is short, not enough to tuck back but short enough to block view of watch to let hang, and hides the first buckle and looks great.

I'm just switching to perlons. No flaps or visible tongues...or strap holes.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

i have a perlon, i just don't like the texture/weight of it as much as a good, heavy-duty nato.

Everytime I try a nato (or others really) it is also "back on the bracelet by morning"!
Currently ever watch I have is on its original bracelet/ strap
Cheers now, Paul

Gets a thumbs up from me ^^^^^

Mines back on too - absolutely amazed how comfortable this is. Overjoyed with my latest piece.
