    Boeing Strap Choice

    Hello all,

    My recent new addition of a white face Boeing has now had significant wrist time but....I canít seem to get any of the straps/ bracelet comfortably fitting my wrist. Initially I removed the blue stitched synthetic and fitted the bracelet, this made the watch quite heavy so I switched to the leather. This lasted a fortnight but due to the temperature here in Cyprus, salt marks were appearing so I removed it and switched back to the blue stitch synthetic which is not comfortable. Has anyone fitted a nato or another alternative to a Boeing and if so how do they find the fit. I have fitted my solo with a Nato ( the non Velcro ) and Iím very impressed, itís comfortable and looks great but at £85 for a nato it should be. Any images would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks for your assistance.

    Regards
    Taileron

    Taileron, are you open to handmade leather straps? I too am out in cyprus and I use handmade leather NATOís.

    I also have a few MN straps by Erikas Originals they are fantastic in cyprus especially when you go to the beach etc.

    I really like the Bremont rubber straps! They are comfy and come in 3 color choices! Cheers JIM

    Thanks for the responses, I do like the look on the leather Nato and the rubber. Mine is the same model as yours Jim, the fit looks spot on. I’m a bit anal on fit and finish. Have you had any salt marks come through on your leather Nato Dan?

    Many Thanks
