Default Good leather NATO

What's a good leather Nato strap for 5513? Thinking of getting a kangaroo tail from natostrap.com but they're not so responsive.

Jurgens leather Nato seems to use higher quality leather but its metals parts look very un-Nato.

BTW, just received email that natostrap.com email does not exist. Hmmmm... strange.

Default How about J-straps?

I got a couple nice ones from Johnny Torrez at J-Straps. Last time I talked to him, he said that he's still got a bit of this leather left. Shown on the MkII modded Hamilton that I got recently from MWR member m.and



Looks and feels like authentic hardware because I sent him a couple donor straps for the shiny bits.

Default Leather NATOs

Hello!

I have a couple of natostrap.com kangaroo straps which I think are awesome:

However, I think the best leather NATOs are from Jürgens Germany:

I bought mine from watchesu571 on ebay. It's pretty good quality leather although the hardware isn't true NATO style.

Untitled

Pretty reasonable price aswell!

Cheers

Luke

That's a great looking watch, heebs. Too bad I missed it when it was on the PX. Let me know when you're ready to trade it in.

Got another photo of a J-Straps leather nato here:


Jim C., I'll keep you in mind, but that one's a keeper (for now, but that's how the sickness goes, right?)
