    Default French Air Force Breitling on NATO

    Christmas is fast approaching, and I decided to give my French Air Force Navitimer 2100 an early gift in the form of a NATO strap.

    Not only does the watch look more purposeful than on its original steel bracelet, it is also more comfortable to wear in my opinion. What do you guys think?

    Default New strap!

    Looking good... I had much the same thought and have changed from my grey and black to this for a more christmassy feel....



    Lovely sunny but cold day at the rugby too!

    Would need to see some bracelet photos Pascal, but it's lovely on the nylon. Still, a bracelet can be a boon to an aviation watch, especially when it's original.

    Aaah, an Iraqi Navitimer...




    I once had one of these, but it had lost its bracelet and came to me on a strap. Still an impressive watch though!




    As for pictures of the Breitling with the bracelet, here's one:

    I think that looks good on the bracelet! The nylon looks good, but then again nylon isn't such a great idea in a place where fire is a hazard
    Cheers all, Colin
