    Straps & Pelagos - do these really go together?

    So I'm just wondering if any Pelagos owners can comment on the straps/bracelet situation with these watches. I'm seriously considering buying a black two liner, but I'm generally not a bracelet guy, so will want to change to a strap of some sort. I've heard the lug design can makes straps look a little weird though. Anyone had any experience with this?

    It's not to bad on a chunky leather strap. Nato straps do leave a large chunk of the case showing which did look odd when I first tried it.

    Ok so avoid Nato's. Does it look any good on chunky leather, or is it one of those where it's really got to be on a bracelet?

    Good review here, with some pictures. Post 130 shows the gap with a nato.

    The rubber it comes with can be worn with the end links so neatly covers it. I've had it on a few leather straps, all covered it hap pretty well. I've got used to it now, and it's still one of my faves.

    I often wear mine on straps rather than the bracelet.

    Favourites are Sailcloth, Cordura or a GGB.

    The bracelet is so good, I never wore mine on the rubber strap it came with.

    They actually look great, especially the Cordura. I'd just decided to abandon my Pelagos hunt in favour of the more strap-friendly Black Bay Black, so this isn't helping...
