    New Hambleden Vintage Strap (aka Crazy Horse/Codebreaker NATO)

    Thanks Jeremy and CaptLeslie! I am a big fan of the combo... It's growing on me quickly. Capt - you should have yours tomorrow. I ordered mine on the 2nd and got it today on the 8th and I live on the East Coast.

    That looks fantastic! Heres a question for you, do you think that strap would suit an orange MBII?

    I use NATO straps quite a bit on my MBII and I doubt very much you'd fit the leather one between the springbar and barrel. It's a job to get a thick nylon one through TBH.

    Use curved spring bars and all will be ok. I use this strap on my U2 IAFDT just fine like that...

    Good to know, might try that, thought curved bars on a NATO wouldn't work as I assumed they'd rotate.

    I had issues fitting the strap between the spring bars and barrel on the P51. I ended up taking the bar out, looping the leather through to the barrel and then putting the spring bar back on. That seemed to work fine but I may try the curved bar instead!

    I used the curved bars on my mbii with a leather NATO. There was no chance of the straight bars giving enough room to get the strap under, but the curved worked beautifully. They only "rotate" into the perfect position for the strap on the watch.
