    Yes, I've asked them to engrave IWL on the third keeper, which on a standard NATO is the keeper that faces the wearer.

    so you would get the best of both worlds going with the 22mm I would have thought sharky said on the mwc thread


    "
    I've just voted for the size, didn't know there was a poll for that lol, now 20/22 are tied I'd buy more if 22mm is made
    "


    I have said the same if they went 22 I would have at least two more depending on price so that seem to be a case with a lot of use have said about buying more then one

    think most of the guys on mwc will buy a couple that is how it seems in chatting anyway
    I'm a man of the people I'll do what the majority want. If the folks of MWC are interested in 22mm convince them to come vote. 20mm isn't set in stone, that's just what I had worked up. I can easily change it to 22 if that's the one with higher demand.

    Is it just a 2 piece nato ? Or is there a 1 piece option?

    As Geoff mentioned, it's a standard NATO strap with the flap behind the main strap.

    Maybe I should just end everything now as 22mm is in the lead by 1 vote at the moment.

    most have that is why it is tied do you think we could do one last vote on 22 and that other size I can't quite remember one vote only allowed so we can get a final true read and then go for the size 22 hmmm mean what ever sizes wins that is

    I actually don't care for diving with Natos myself, though they do offer some extra safety. I suppose there are military watches with 18mm or 20mm, but are people really going to use this on dress watches? As we've made the point before, a 22 can fit into 20mm lugs easily, but a 20mm strap when you have 22mm lug watches is something that will sit in a drawer. I've committed to buy either way, but I would like to be able to wear it rather than just admire it.

    If they were 22mm I'd pick one up to play with. Is this reasonably thick material?

    1.2mm the standard NATO thickness. Might be 1.5 but I think that's for Zulu.

    I will gladly buy a 22 or 20mm. Doesn't matter to me.
