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.
