    Omega NATO longevity

    Hello,

    I'd like to hear your experiences on the OEM NATOs from Omega.
    How long they last wearing them daily? Also how does a more active (scuba/diving, etc.) lifestyle affect their life span?
    Should one more like treasure them instead of having them as a daily beater?

    Thanks :-)
    Pat

    Mine will last forever as its ludicrous keeper spacing means it doesn't fit on my wrist, thus it will remain in the box!

    Mate of mine is Petty Officer Stoker and he wears his speedy on the black Omega NATO daily. Swears blind by it and he really puts it through its paces. If hes happy with it elbow deep in ships engines i would imagine you have nothing to worry about

    Even though theyíre quite durable, Iím more towards treasuring the oem one and just using a lookalike nato, that way if anything happens to the nato you wonít feel too bad about it!

    I use my black OEM NATO on my Speedie and transfer it regular to the 2254. I donít worry about it and treat it as any other NATO so far itís stood up to everything Iíve thrown at it.

    My OEM NATO from the Speedy is now on my 2254 but, as I've moaned before, the centralised buckle means the strap end is too short to double back through the keeper but just long enough to overlap the bezel of the watch GRRR!!!
    Quality is superb, practicality is less so...

    Thank you gents for you input!

    Currently I have worn my time factor NATO for the best part since last year mainly for the actively spent warmer days and it already is fraying at the end (opposite the buckle).
    So I was curious if Omega's price is justified with durability, not just branding.

    While they're beautiful and you could clearly feel its a premium product, due to its price I am yet to pull the trigger hence trying to find a rational motive.

    The quality is excellent, I'm just fed up that the design stops me wearing it! If I could get it to fit I'd wear it every day probably.

    It's the black one that came with the Speedy. At the moment I don't really want to sell it but if I do I'll let you know
