Well, I do. The perennial debate about the merits or otherwise of the ubiquitous NATO rumbles on, but I have to admit to being a complete convert. I don;t know why a cheap piece of fabric on a watch costing thousands should work, but to my mind it does; in so many ways, and on so many styles of watch.

This is a Navitimer 806 that dates back to the World Cup-winning year of 1966. The hands and indices have the most perfect patina, and that’s probably why the choice of brown for the strap seems such a good one. Just lovely.
