That's the whole beauty of these: You don't have to decide.
The first thing I did when I bought my first Sub was to buy a bunch of NATOs to swap out when the mood struck.

I like the bracelet personally, but the Nato will do at a pinch,

Matos provide a fun option to match colors etc. I prefer my Subs on an oyster bracelet but that's just me. Nice watch btw.

I think that the 5512 and 5513 are some of the very few Rolex that look cool on a Nato. I think it could be because of the bond association and we all recall that era and Nato use. What do you think?
