    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.

    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 ;) .

    Of the options listed A or B for me. I like the contrast that they provide with the dial, which makes it stand out. But personally I would probably opt for a grey as well

    Its from Finwatchstraps - made from vintage style ammo leather from the UK. Custom made to whatever dimensions you like. I ordered non tapered ones initially but wasnt keen on them on the Everest. The one above tapers to 16mm and feels perfect. Its amazingly soft.

    I still prefer the watch on a tapered Oyster style bracelet though - but its nice to pop it on this now and then.

    honestly, I think that it fits nicely all the shown straps.
    A total strap monster as they say.

    I have a PRS-25 incoming, and appreciate the strap ideas.
    I have a weathered, black leather strap and a Erika's MN that are on the short list.
