I rock the leather Nato on my TT GMT Master II. It's a great combo.

I go between leather and a crown and buckle nato. Been trying to sell this piece but it's nice to have a nato only watch. Decisions.

I like the one piece nylon straps - don't think they are referred to as NATO's though.

Yeah I think technically its not a NATO. Its just a single pass, but still works basically the same way if a springbar was lost.

Here's a 'vintage' NATO. I've had this strap at least 15 years, don't remember the brand, the cost or how many watches its been on but it's still looking good. A little faded and a little fuzzy but still safely protecting my babies as was intended. :)
