I will assume you are not trolling...
IMO Nato straps look great on 'tool' watches, even (or especially) on expensive vintages ones, such as a Sub 5512 or 5513. Nato straps have been worn on such watches for decades, in case you didn't realise - it's not some recent fad, or the result of people watching too many James Bond movies, as you insinuate.
You don't like Nato straps. fine, you are entitled to your opinion, but don't get all huffy about it - it just makes you look foolish.
