    Cylon, perlon straps are sometimes also called tropical or braided NATO straps.

    They are difficult to find in 20/22mm widths now as a true NATO (as opposed to RAF style band), it took me ages to find a source despite some advanced Google-fu.

    This is the most comfortable strap I have ever worn, and the mesh design allows for very fine adjustment of fit as there are no punched holes.

    My Nomos Orion Rose Gold:

    [​IMG]

    My first and only "expensive" watch. Paid for half of it along with my parents for my 18th birthday. Lets just say I'm very careful when wearing an expensive watch..

    Edit: Did Nomos raise their prices? This watch is now 2200$ CAD but I remember paying less (1600$) but then the customs was another several hundred. Interesting.
