    My vote goes to the original bracelet

    Tbh, none of those do a lot for me. I'm not sure this is a watch that benefits from being jazzed up too much by the strap. I did buy one of Eddie's grey NATOs for mine and thought that looked pretty good, though.

    This +1 without doubt. If I can be blunt all those straps detract from the watch imo.

    Wait until the 20>16 rivetted bracelet arrives, your opinion may change. Also, this watch is made for Natos (not the examples in this thread unfortunately) or plain brown leather. IMHO.

    For me the best NATO for the 25 is Eddie's grey or green ones. 😉

    Vintage leather is the way to go.

    Half a dozen new watches in the pipeline, shipping orders and he still has time to introduce a new strap range. They must be putting something in the Sheffield water.

    Thanks for the info , I m wondering about the 20 mm lug width , afaik the PRS-25 I just received is 22mm lug width , will you provide a 22 mm version ?

    Among the straps I tried , I have now some *sure* criteria according to my taste :

    - if NATO it must be a 2 rings or a no ring with just a NATO loop , it suits better with the classy touch of the 25

    - a cordovan 22/20 can do the job too

    - as Eddie advised, I ve ordered a 22mm ammo strap ( didnít knew Eddie would provide one )

    - I remember a handmade genuine alligator strap in 22 mm remains in the tray , I ll test it on when Iím back from vacation

    The new strap pictured above was initially for the white dial Expedition watch, which is why I though a roller buckle would be appropriate. The strap will be available before the watch and I may put it on general sale. I have no plans to make it in 22mm at this time.

    If you like a stripe you might like the Service series from Haveston.

    Not relative to the Omega pi$$take price for a Nato

    Yes but a 2 ring or US Military type (no steel ring but a fabric loop) would be classier imo ;) .
