    Could you point me in the right direction please? I wasn't aware Eddie sold them and have just had a look, without success.

    Timefactors.com and click on the "smiths" (top left above "watch range"). It's the third watch down.

    Thanks Dave, but I wasn't asking about the watch (I already have one). 'James_' replied to a query from 'chafer' about a leather NATO strap for the PRS-40 by suggesting "one of the Timefactors ones" and I couldn't find any mention of leather NATOs on Eddie's site. I've been considering trying a leather NATO on the PRS-40 for a while but not found the right strap yet.

    I'd have thought a leather NATO would be way too thick.

    I found it wore better if the flap of a standard NATO was cut off. Perhaps it's just me though!

    I probably wouldn't wear it with anything other than a regular fabric NATO strap.

    It was this image from Giovanni Moro himself that made me think leather NATO was a possibility.

    A NATO with the second piece of strap is known as a G10 pattern, with only a single it's an RAF pattern. G10 has 3 rings, RAF has 2.

    Sorry I didn't notice that you mentioned you are looking for a leather nato. Not sure there are any Timefactors leather natos.

    Have a look here...

    Actually I think that the leather NATO looks really good on it.

    This might look great with a grey leather NATO strap.
