I can make a two piece strap from this leather/stitch/lining combination....This style strap is definitely not for all watches but versatile enough for most.

I just recently had a customer admit he really wants to like one piece straps for the security they offer when diving or doing activities where losing the watch is a possibility...(has happened to me)...but just couldn't find one that didn't make his Darth Tuna sit up too high, that would fit through his narrow case/bar gap, and would accommodate his 8" wrist. We got him a thin 3 ring zulu style and he was very pleased with the results.

Thinking that chocolate would look nice on a bronze watch...

I can make these with bronze hardware as well. I make my own rings/buckles. I have 206 brass now and some leaded phosphor bronze. Neither will match exactly the composition of your case material however. I think the ones for sale at crown and buckle should. I think its composition is actually C510 whereas your case is probably a CuSn8 or C5210 slightly lower tin content. It was not something a business as small as mine to acquire a small quantity or commission a manufacturer to produce the phosphor bronze alloy to match cases.

At any rate I could always make a two piece and you install the buckle that matches!

Boy Mike, that is one impressive NATO ! Can't believe how nice the leather looks, as well as how great it looks in the NATO style. Really is something next to the regular NATO design also. Amazing !

What's nice is that the looks, and design seem to be matched by the quality, and comfort. Looks awesome with the Unique here. Excellent review Mike, and work Dustin !
