Those Pateks and Langes look ridiculous on nylon but my Explorer II on nylon while I was deployed (even though I still wear it on one) is 100% acceptable. Hmph!

Yup, here's one I saved.
Those look great but he doesn't stock anything in 18mm. Damn.

It's interesting that you (indrectly) make a reference to price - watch straps are just that, watch straps. They accessorise the watch.
If you think a watch strap must be "high end" to match a "high end" watch then it might be worthwhile asking yourself ...why?
IMO you are approaching the whole WIS thing from a wrong angle - i.e. by using as a metric the perceived value of objects. Like people whose enjoyment of paintings is based on the name in the lower R hand corner.
BTW apropos, your last sentence about the name of a painter goes well with your choice of Patek. You are buying the name when you purchase a Patek. I like their watches, but they are way over valued and quite over hyped. In addition, their dealers are among the most arrogant I have met, with very few exceptions. I sold mine years ago and went with pieces I liked more. Also, Patek's are not the most reliable watches and they aren't as accurate as others for 1/4 the price, similar complications. My 2¢.
