    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.

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

    This might look great with a grey leather NATO strap.

    Can someone bump this thread for me on Tuesday morning? I keep trying to remember to go back on a Tuesday to buy one of these, but sales are always closed by the time I remember.

    No worries, I remembered myself!



    First new watch I've bought myself in a while. Absolutely loving it. Only slight gripe is the second hand doesn't hit the markers. Are there any tricks I can try to get them to line up?

    I read somewhere that the second hand can be set to align properly but that it's very time consuming to do. Guess you just have to find someone who is willing to it. If you do find someone please let me know!

    I've been trying a trick that worked on a Seiko I have - pulling the crown just as it's about to tick, wiggling it a bit and putting it back. All I've achieved is it now hits exactly between the minute markers, rather than just after one.

    So infuriating!
