    Just like anything else:

    Horses of courses.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Both looks good, but why choose, it comes with both? The choice is between the leather strap and the steel bracelet (which also comes with the fabric strap). Ideally I'd want all three :D

    That makes sense. When you said pre-moon, I was thinking 321 movement. But I guess you were referring to the caseback, which is certainly correct terminology, too.

    Doh. You're right. I obviously fail at properly comprehending websites. Leather + nato it is then.

    I like the Tudor much more on steel. I don't think the leather or NATO work well

    Not bad, not bad at all.


    I do like the rubber strap that goes with this one though.

    This is the one I tend to wear on a Nato.

    In my opinion a little bit of Red always looks nice on a dial.

    Aquanaut on a NATO like its a Timex is pretty baller.

    Though that is the only watch without a dive bezel that I prefer on a rubber strap.

    Both - in either leather or steel, it comes with a gorgeous fabric strap as an accessory. I find the Black Bay to look for more distinctive and unique on the OE antiqued leather strap. I have on on order so equipped.
