    What's a good site for Nato straps? Just picked up a made in Japan Seiko "flieger"

    I bought two from here, red/blue and a bond strap. Very happy with them, and very inexpensive.

    I have bought from these guys too. Great quality.
    They combine shipping too.

    As suggested in the P0rn thread. This watch should probably be here instead [​IMG]

    Grenen Model #M-44XLUUC. Steel on an olive Nato with black hardware.

    Grenen Model #M-24XLSSN. Steel on an orange nubuck strap.

    Grenen is an offshoot of Skagen. Very similar style, both come with steel mesh bands and use a 22mm strap size.

    Funny a lot of these watches look better to me (just gut cool factor) than many of the 10K+ watches!

    Info about the watch, potemkin?

    Its a Titoni Airmaster that I found on ebay a few years ago. They can be had for quite cheap and they are very nice watches. This one is a manual wind watch which basically means it stops working every 2 days because I never remember to wind it until its too late. Eventually I want to get an automatic one as well. There is a great one one ebay right now with a date magnifier but Canada Post is on strike right now so I cant really order anything online until thats resolved because I have no idea if or when it will actually arrive.
