    Everest goes Nato

    Everest 057 (birth year) has been on a TWS Titan leather strap since day one
    in Dec 2011, the bracelet has never been worn. There have been brief stints on one of Eddie’s grey Natos, but I’m giving it a try for a few days on a one piece Haveston to see if I like the weight of the strap before buying a Haveston canvas. So on with a case back protector made from helicopter tape from Paragon Tapes, and shoulderless springbars, followed by a Haveston Carrier.

    Looking good Bob - coincidentally I've just put on the Voyager with their older NATO (Fortress) and I was thinking how the newer one feels in terms of balance on a heavy watch. My newer Haveston was on titanium which is a nice balance.

    I do like the Carrier, sorely tempted...

    I think the Everest belongs on a nato , the bracelet makes it look too friendly.

    Thanks Junaid. I've found that both styles of strap that Haveston do, ie 1 piece pass through and 2 piece, work well on the Voyager, despite my reservations about them discontinuing the 2 piece. I think the way the sliding keeper does away with a tuck and the resulting lack of (comparative) bulks is the reason. I do hope they continue the colours of the Fortress in a pass through. My picture above of the Carrier makes it look too grey, it has a bluey tint in some lights, thus . . .
