    Quick strap question

    Does anyone have experience with the GasGasBones horween Nato. I was thinking of placing an order to go on my Black Bay. Thought I would check with you guys first as the shipping will probably be more than the strap cost !
    I was considering a second one for the Marinemaster too.

    Anyone got one?

    No direct experience, but I've never heard a bad word about his straps.

    Had two a while back but they went with the watches when I flipped them.

    Excellent quality and workmanship, especially the stitching and hardware.

    I would rate them a level above most other Horween straps that I have had.

    I also have a number of his nylon two-piece straps and they are awesome as well.

    Not cheap, but highly recommended!

    Thanks for the reply , just waiting for email about FedEx Shipping to me.
    Think I will get a couple of the Horween . Not sure about whether I would use regular nylon nato straps with my current watch selection.

    Had a reply from Carl at Gasgasbones very quickly, shipping question sorted without and fuss or bother, 2 straps ordered.

    Funny how some people make it easy to do business and spend money with them and some don't even reply to email queries.
