Either my 16610 or my 16570 Polar are my go-to NATO choices. But on occassion I'll throw on my dad's old Mido Multifort, bought new in 1957

I have a few nice pieces, but I will admit that my "NATO watch" gets a lot of wrist time...mainly because periodically changing the look prevents me from getting tired of it.

Today I was about to put it back in the watch box and pull out my other watches but I saw the bag of NATOs and made a quick swap and put it back on my wrist:)

I wore this watch to the new avengers movie but was using a comic book NATO strap. After the movie I swapped to a black nylon NATO and today I am using a classier canvas NATO.

I look fwd to your posts!
what a nato!

How Many Have A Designated NATO Watch

I wear my 14060 and my 79180 Big Block on a NATO most of the time. I love the versatility and how the watches never seen to get old! Not to mention comfort.

Also the Orange Monster - this thing just screams to be on a NATO!

I love the brilliant match of the nylon and the Lumes!!!

My Tudor Sub is NATO only (standard NATO or leather) among many of my modern pieces. On watch on a bracelet is the BLNR.

I find em on ebay. Between 1 and 5 bucks per. The cheaper the thinner and really more comfortable.

Rolex should pay the fees around when considering all the free, first-class advertising they get!!! Terrific pics my friends.

Those premium "stiff" natos r much better in quality than cheapos from Asia. Trust me. U just need to break them in. Also they don't stain as easily as the latter. I did a comparison article before.

Here is my NATO exclusive watch




I blame it on the autoconnect.

Bump. Anymore pics of Rolexes on Nato.
Thinking to get one to switch out for the summer because I find the oyster slightly uncomfortable with the build up of sweat when wearing my LN on a humid day.

I wish I had a better pic. I hate the omega bracelet so the speedy stays on a strap.
