I have another prospect, it has a 40mm diameter, 20mm band and only $52. What do you guys think? Can this watch pull-off NATO nylon or alligator leather straps?
The key for me is versatility (and simplicity) where I can dress-up or dress-down the watch by replacing straps. I feel that my Timex Weekender is just too casual and time for a little change.
That is a good looking watch and a nice price. It would look great with an alligator leather strap.
I would just use the Weekender as my casual watch and use it to feature the NATO straps on. I'm not a NATO strap fan, though. I think they look ok with a watch like the Weekender, but I don't care for them when worn with Rolex's or Omega's, other high end brands, etc. A little too...I'm so cool, I wear my expensive watch on a $15 dollar strap.
