    I never really wanted a nato strap, but I may have to rethink it. It looks really good with that particular watch.

    Below is my AP collection at its peak.

    Only 3 of these remain in my possession. 3 had to go due to little or no wear and the ever present need for hard cash. [​IMG]

    I've never seen this combination before (the solid grey NATO isn't all that common) but it looks VERY sharp. I never would've thought to put it together, but now I want a Speedy so I can put it on the same strap. Nice job!

    Yes, I do have a small wrist- 6.5" around. Anything bigger than 36mm just looks silly on me. Im also not a fan of the big bling watch craze. I prefer to wear my watches rather than them wearing me. The watch may appear larger than 36mm due to the zoom on the camera.

    tell me about it.. my wrist is just 6". I haven't seen ANYONE with a wrist that small. Its hard to find watches that fit me well.

    The left sided three are still with me. I found the Volcano fun but too "colourful", the Shaq too big and I had no need for the regatta timer on the Alinghi Polaris.

    Excellent choices, although I would have kept the Alinghi instead of the two tone ROO, for a little bit of movement diversity but I understand your decision.
