Dang, y'all are some serious Rolex and Omega folks. Very nice collection! Feel free to stop by the thread any time you wish! Thanks a bunch for sharing.

Also, that is one serious looking winder.

I think that Seamaster could look good on a NATO. There's something about those 60s/70s vintage chronos that just suits.

I like the vintage racing strap idea as suggested by Apropos.

Not sure I like the blue with it, but that's just me.  Maybe with a different color or a classic NATO.

That's a great looking strap, do you have a source for it? The only perlon straps I can get a hold of are the black NATO straps. And I have a tendency to go through those, as they stretch and then you have to cut and cauterize and they stretch again and then you have to cut cauterize etc.

Certainly! 20mm Eulit Kristall Blau Schnalle chrom perlon from http://www.yellys.ch/zub/zub-eulit.html.

The web pages might be a little daunting if you don't read German (and even then), but send herr Fuchs a mail at info@yellys.ch with your order in English, and you will quickly receive a PayPal invoice and excellent service. The shipping was expensive compared to the strap though smile.gif
