    FWIW a lot of European made OTR shirts have huge cuffs, you can fit any watch under them. Asian-made shirts, OTR or MTM are usually pretty tiny, cuff-wise.

    I agree, very nice - it's good to have some variety, in sizes as well as brands and models.

    Great watches, but BP looks really big on you. Portuguese is much better in my taste.

    Here is my limit of size )

    Just for clarification, those weren't pictures of me. They are other people from WAYWRN - I also don't think they are the same person, but I could be mistaken.

    How do you like the NATO with a thicker strap like that? Does the whole concept work adequately? I would think that the thickness of the cordovan would make the strap uncomfortable?

    Good that you managed to get a shell strap through the pins. I have a vintage Sub and such a strap just would not go through.

    In my opinion the cordovan straps are beautiful - but very, very hard to use since the leather is too thick, just as many cheap "leather" NATOs. These "lift" the watch too much and the watch becomes high and wiggly...

    agree, and not feeling it on the Rolex unfortunately. If they'd shave that cordovan down a bit they'd maybe make a case, but that foldback part still ruins the flow. Plus, it'd erase the Horween logo, and that's the whole point for many. :p

    Some of the tool watches like the Damaskos and Sinns would look better on the cordo NATOs but still, it's an awkward product.
