    I did try the CWC stretch nato too which is quite nice especially against my ‘vintage lume’version https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210803/ee637bd6409d3959f181228ea3d670be.jpg

    I’ve tried mine on lots of straps and always return to the grey CWC with black hardware. It’s quite a tight fit between the lugs - like it’s 21mm or something - and just long enough for my 8 3/4 inch...

    I just bought a Casio Gw5000U from Seiya in Japan which should work out at about £300 after tax. That’s probably the only watch I’ve ever bought ‘over list’ in about 35 years of buying and selling...

    I must admit I’m now looking at my G shock collection - many of which I rarely if ever wear, partly due to 50+ eyesight - and have come to the conclusion that the screwback Japanese made models, of...

    Apparently the GW5000U are not coming to the UK - the other models are showing as ‘coming soon’ on the G shock UK website but not the 5000U. I’ve just ordered one from Seiya who has them back in...

    I had a red/black one on a Sinn U1 and thought it was very good. I have 8 3/4 inch wrists and it was a good length for me. I didn’t find it all that malleable - if it was I think the upper layer...

    I’ve heard recommendations for cheap CRV’s over the years but whenever I looked they were much more than £5k. I must look in the wrong places?? - at this price I’d stick to Japanese whatever, just...

    If you can buy it in a high street shop, I don’t think you can tell if the wearer is a ‘watch guy’ - and that includes most Omega and Rolex watches - an AD is still a shop!

    Hmm. A NATO strap is a strip of Nylon ribbon, with a few bits of steel hardware. I can’t think of a better example of overpricing. I wonder how much an Omega NATO costs to produce - perhaps £5-£10? ...
