This is my second purchase from Nomad Watch Works. My first - Marine Nationale 20mm in Black - was awesome. Fit was great. Wrote a 4-star review. Was so happy that I placed an order for another one, this time in Black-Grey, but sadly, the fit isn't as snug due to the strap being around 2cm longer than the first. Most folks would not be bothered by this inconsistency in strap length, but for someone like me with small ~5.75" wrists, it makes a lot of difference. Now I have to move the slider mechanism all the way up until it's sitting next to the watch case, ruining the overall aesthetic. Nomad needs to either state potential size discrepancies on the product page or ensure all straps of same range are of equal length, or better still, offer different sizes for small and big wrists. Aside from that, overall strap quality is decent.
This strap is fast becoming the favourite for my BB58 Navy Blue, but I really hope Nomad comes up with more colour combos so I can snag some for my other watches!
Goes really well with my Black Bay, and the comfort is amazing
1000% comfortable & worth every single cent spent, i would never stopped buying again, perfectly worth the priced stated. thank you again so much. keep up the good work on watches strap. thumbs up!!!
Took a bit of fiddling initially to get a good fit on my small (5.75”) wrists, but it’s pretty good now that I’ve gotten used to it. Helps keep my relatively heavy dive watch locked down on the wrist. Still gives the security of a single pass NATO without the extra bulk or big gaps on side of wrist.
1. Decently priced.
2. Snug fit without being too tight. Watch doesn’t move about too much.
3. No sharp/rough edges on metal hardware or nylon sides.
1. Not sure if the elasticity will hold up over time.
2. Material is rougher than expected. Not uncomfortable, but does leave mark on skin after long hours of wear.
3. Option to personalize the metal clasp with some engraving would’ve been nice.
