Cold cold cold. Snowy too. Ran to GR yesterday and the 45m drive took hour and a half so many people in the ditch.

What a home run by Hamilton. They must have fired the guy in charge of shitty date windows.

Great looking watch, I actually like the OEM nato a lot.
Same here...I'm liking these more and more.

I don't want to sound like a poor sport, but how is it that ours both shipped from the same place at the same time, and yours is in your town and mine is still in Tokyo?? :tap:

Ah well, I hope you do get it today. :salute:

Could be for me, too. I'm curious to see if these hold at MSRP, or will be available with some discount.

Grrrrrr. And he sent you a watch box too? Lol, all good. Looks great. Does the nato wear well, like a normal nato?

Oh, and yeah, he always packs stuff really well.

The OEM strap is ok. Well made. It will either work for you or not. Tail only tucks in first loop. Not a crisis, but I’ve already swapped to an RAF strap :)

Figures. I'm pretty sure that people that design oem natos have never actually worn a nato. Doesn't matter, I've got about a dozen 20mm natos, but I was hoping the oem might be wearable.

Those look like 1:1 of the originals. And before rover rat says it- you can find those all over Ebay- but I’d much rather have this reissue.
