thanks! done and done. I just got the regular one. i guess i just need to be careful. the watch i got came with some extra straps that seem ok, but I want a few NATOs and I'm going to see if the guy who makes belts for me does watch straps too--I've been loving some of hodinkee's instagram pics of his speedmaster on various brown straps (assuming they are all hodinkee straps--the suede and the leather brown both look great).
