Rolex 16710 GMT Pepsi Bezel bracelet v nato?

Hi all,

I just purchased a 2007 16710 GMT with Pepsi Bezel . For those of you who have owned this reference over the years do you guys prefer it on bracelet or nato? And which nato straps might go the best with it?

Thanks!

Bracelet. I've never worn any of my 16710 or 16700s on a NATO.

It’s best on the bracelet (like most ss sport models). I think the natos look great on the submariner (aka no date), not so much on the gmt though.

Bracelet. Nato's can be a "fun" change of pace, but I don't feel a 16710 needs that. Classic is classic, leave it alone.

Alternatively, you could use a high quality leather strap (e.g. JPM). I currently have mine on a medium brown one. It looks pretty sharp that way, too.

NATO is better for a sub, IMHO.
