Thank you very much, Nordwulf. I guessed it would be a US-based supplier, but shipping fees don't look extortionate and this looks the exact colour i wanted. As I don't own a Vintage yet, I might as well order the strap now on economy shipping and who knows, arrival might coincide with finding the watch! :D

Or I can just stick t on my black GMT...yep I think I'll order. Cheers.

You're welcome! Keep in mind the spring bars are close to the case on the C60. Nato straps fit fine with straight spring bars but the thicker zulu straps need curved spring bar in order to get enough clearance and easily slide the strap through.

Thanks - I hadn't realised that! Luckily I do have a pair of curved, so I will make sure I use those.

I'm guessing that is the 43 mm Vintage? It definitely looks cool on the olive green NATO.

Hate the rubber strap. I do a lot of running and cycling, and I imagine it could get a bit sweaty and uncomfortable. Is this the case or not?

OP, the vintage looks awesome on the NATO.

I know topic is bit old but its the only one I've found. Did anyone successfully mounted shark mesh on 43mm version? If did which one? I own a pvd version of trident and had a strapcode's shark mesh at home which I tried to put on but didnt succeed. I have curved spring bars, but I couldnt get them throug and for the straight ones there is no enough space.

The Trident is a really versatile watch- going to try mine on some different straps, now.

I can recommend Haveston straps. IMHO the best straps, I've ever had.
