Casio on a nato strap or original style?

I love nato strap in many reasons. However, but I see a lot of people here using nato strap on casio watches like G-Shock, F-91W, but for me doesn鈥檛 fit. I don't want to offend anyone, but it hurts my eyes as if they had put pepper in it. lol馃槶馃ぃ馃槀 Don't get me wrong, everyone wears what they like, of course I respect it, but I would like to know if I'm the only one here who prefers an original Casio style (or another of rubber) and would never put a nato strap on it. And those who don't agree, ok, I'd like to see your point of view.

For me, a NATO is more about comfort and practicality, I think. A good NATO is a like an old pair of slippers - just so comfortable, and doesn't need breaking in of softening up like a lot of other straps. Plus, if a pin bar pings away, you don't lose your watch.

As you quite rightly said though, each to their own - it would be a boring hobby if we all liked the same thing. 馃檭

Same for me it's just comfortable and I also think it looks good. Also adds some variation.

Sorry I'm old fashioned it has to be plastic or rubber聽

For sure NATO is pure comfort, safe and is very good in many ways. A watch content creator I like, TGV, likes to wear his G-Shock in a nato as well, but I can't use it in a Casio. For me it's like a design murder 馃ぃ.

But we agree that wear a watch is personal, each one uses it as they want, I respect it. 馃憤

Me too 100%!!!

Casio with rubberstrap is how I wore them when I was just a kid and teenager. My recent buying spree of the plain Casio's and the G-Shocks are all original. My Citizen AW1365-19P and Seiko Series 5 SNZG07K1 are on NATO's. Uncomfortable original straps.

Me too. Nato is great for other watches, but I don't like it for resin casio. I've been wearing Casio since I was a kid, 100% original look.
Casio, as far as I know, has never released a resin watch with a nato strap for a reason.

For me, it depends on the watch-I have three G-Shocks converted to NATO straps, and four or five without. 聽Some work, some don't.聽

They are the perfect watch for a NATO in many ways. Light weight and comfortable. Looks aren't great but then again these little digitals look like toys what ever is on there.

Watch bands are for me primarily for comfort, not for looks. I am not a fan of bracelets and surely not of Casio's, and I am not a huge fan of Natos either, I'm more a leather strap guy. Finding leather straps suitable for a Casio is not that easy (or cost you more than the watch).

The result is that it has put me off buying Casios in the first place. Currently I have a Casio on order, and I already have the strap that I intend to replace its bracelet.

A Casio on it's original resin strap looks better, I admit but a Casio on a nato strap...hrmm, that comfort is just unmatched.聽

Starts looking for one of those adapters for my Casio MRW-200H.

Wear it how you like it most馃槍
