Subs without bracelets

Hello all,
I am hoping to get my first Rolex - a 116610LN soon. I am not too fond of wearing it on a bracelet though. I was wondering how many others tend to wear their subs on alternate bands...
If you do wear your sub on any kind of leather/fabric/rubber strap, please show them off here, basically any strap made of anything other than metal. I would really appreciate strap designs and ideas.

Submariner on a 16mm regimental single piece strap. I use 2.5mm spring bars to stay consistent with the maxi case design.

I don't own a sub (yet) but I love them on the nato straps like above and also those vintage suede straps.

5517

The Iconic 5517 had fixed bars so a Nato strap was the only option, Phoenix manufacture for the British Army and also sell to the Public, I own 3 and rotate them on other watches.

Here's a leather strap I made on my 114060:




I need to switch over to the curved springbars though as the leather is rubbing against the housing.

Subs on canvas have got to be my favorite. I think they just look killer.

I actually prefer cloth straps. It's lighter, doesn't pull my hair, doesn't pinch my skin. And, since the 16610 is so common, it gives it sort of a unique look. This is a single pass strap from BluShark, that doesn't lift the watch off the wrist as much as a regular NATO. I wouln't feel comfortable swimming/diving with it though, would go with the traditional bracelet or a NATO.

Love the rubber B on the Subs, also help preserve the case of the watch and the integrity of the original bracelet. Looks real nice on the natos also.

Vintage Sean Connery Era Bond nato strap with the gentle red always looks good on the Sub - especially so on the 6538 ref

The strap might need a bath.
