NATO Strap on a GMT?

NATO straps: yay or nay?

I love them on my Pagani Design PD-1662, a homage to the Rolex GMT Master II. They are fun, comfortable, and affordable, and they let me customize my watch to my liking....

BUUUTTTT..... what about on the real Rolex GMT Master and other high-end watches?

Do they look too casual and cheap, or do they add some contrast and personality?

What do you think?

Not cheap, but utilitarian.

Sometimes that鈥檚 not the look I鈥檓 going for.

What he said. 馃槑

I vote for NATOs on smaller/thinner watches. Big ones wobble too much.

Yes 馃憤

But the Omega one isn't as good as Zuludiver (sharper hardware, buckle not sewn in, keepers are inflexible, material thicker)

Just because a NATO is more expensive doesn't mean it's better than the cheaper ones...

The big advantage to a Nato or leather is weight. You can shed almost half the weight of the watch switching. you can also go to any color of the rainbow with a nato and even add a print on it.

Nah a Nado strap on a GMT is valid. On a dress watch would look funny but if someone loved the look I still would support it. I can support somethig I would never do no problem 馃槈

I can't do it. I like the jubilee on mine too much. I got the perfect fit with it. I think a nato would make it top heavy. I don't know for sure.

I like the bracelet as well (Oyster style), but I ordered a bunch of NATO straps and in winter it's nicer than the bracelet the watch doesn't feel as cold, we already got snow up in these mountains.
