Its big, and heavy but can't seem to stop wearing it. Much prefer it on an elastic nato rather than on the metal bracelet.
I recently bought a Black Bay Steel because I needed a dive watch with a date function. I love the look of this watch, but geez...it is a thick beast of a watch, isn't it?
I've tried wearing it on a metal bracelet, a leather strap and a single-pass NATO. Like you, I think that the NATO is going to be the. best option. There is something about the metal bracelet that seems to emphasize the thickness. I have an elastic NATO on order. I think that will be my go-to option for this one.
Always been a watch fan since I was a young lad. I thank my late father for kick starting my obsession with his seiko. Only recently now consider myself a true watch fanatic.
