BOR, Original or alternative rubber, nato or what? 🤔

I do enjoy my divers on a bracelet. So upon grabbing the Willard I immediately set about getting an Uncle Seiko BOR, also a green nato. I loved the look of the original strap that came with it; although the hardware (chiefly the keeper) isn’t the most comfy tbh. Does the difference in colour of the bracelet due to the diashield on the watch look kinda wrong or is it just fine in your opinion? Utilitarian look or shiny shiny? What say you?

If I had one, I'd put it on a black rubber chocolate bar strap from Uncle Straps to really go for that vintage look. I think it would also look killer on an elastic fabric strap like a hook strap from Nick Mankey Designs or something that's closer to the MN style like one from Erika's Originals.

Thanks 🙏 Useful feedback…Those chocolate bar straps do look the part. Even a “waffle” rubber perhaps? Not enough options on the poll 😉🤣 You’re leaning towards utilitarian rather than shiny; I agree that’s probably more the style of the piece. The bracelet is growing on me as well though…

Thanks 🙏 It’s definitely growing on me now, plus it’s very comfortable. When I first started into the crazy world of watches I didn’t necessarily think I was a “bracelet guy” but I do love ‘em 😀

Lovely watch there btw 👏

Your Willard is a strap and bracelet monster, bud! All of the above work well. Also get it a hexad bracelet, a few more silicone strap styles, and MN straps like @biglove mentioned. Cheers and enjoy! Image

Many Thanks 🙏 The Hexad design does look rather splendid, great suggestion. I guess the MN straps can get you around the situation I often get with standard nato where I end up “between holes” ? Interesting… So loving this new beast, not sure when my other watches are going to get a look-in 🤣🍻

You're welcome bud! Enjoy!

The Willard came on a waffle strap, and that is the way it should be. IMHO
