Re: New type of NATO strap

Looks the same. It comes with no holes in the strap for buckle the best way to fit it is put it on the wrist pull strap through buckle until it has proper fit the buckle piece that goes through the hole will make the hole works best than a leather punch.

One thing about strap is the watch slides easy so taking it off or on the wrist the watch can slide off the strap and on the ground if not carful nylon NATO don’t have that problem they don’t slide.

Has the same movement that were in Waltham deck chronometers. Been in a long dry spell first thing I bought in 2020 th...

Re: Nivada Grenchen Chrono Aviator Sea Diver

Think a vintage Omega Speedmaster 105.003 40 mm no crown guard so not much difference at 38mm.

No one complains about the size a 105.003 speedy much so 2 mm not much diffe...
