Thoughts about this nato combo?

Post by RolliPolli »

What are your thoughts about this rubber ZuluDiver nato strap with the white sand Aquitaine? I think I love it for summer.

Doesn't go, I'm sorry to say. Not a white strap.

I'm all for bold combinations, but the white sand is a cream / beige colour so you need an appropriate strap; white is too bold.

I think like Guy said a strap color closer to the dial color would look great, but I still love this combo for summer wear! nothing beats a bright, crisp white strap in the sun. And, the strap matches the date wheel color perfectly 8)

I wouldn’t even bother to ask opinions. You like it, so wear it - that’s what matters. Enjoy.

That said, I like it too.

I like it. And when it gets a little grubby, it will match the dial perfectly. :)

I like the colour combo, great for summer....but I don't really like Natos I'm afraid. A white rubber/silicone strap would be my preference.

Rubber NATOs never wear as well as they just don’t drop down from the lugs like fabric so you end up with that odd flaring out. A white nylon nato could be fine

I think that looks pretty good, which surprises me. My only concern would be how long will that crisp, white NATO remain a crisp, white NATO?
