I’ve been chatting back and forth with him and he’s a super nice guy. Fair warning though: he’s a one man shop and he does all his own sewing, so the wait can be a few weeks. All the elastic straps are to your wrist size so they’re not premade.

A little while ago he got Reddit famous so he had a monster influx of customers.

They look similar to the Erika's Originals straps.

Ericas straps are a lot stiffer and use a different method to attach to the watch. Her straps are basically a big loop like a NATO. Nicks straps involve looping the elastic through a metal keeper. There’s no material under the watch head with the hook strap

I vastly prefer the hook strap over the MN style strap.

Thanks @DougNg.

I thought that Nick's straps were a similar design to Erika's, I hadn't paid that much attention when I checked out his website. They do look good, and I'll have to investigate when I get a new watch.

Your wonderfully faded sleeve cuff is distracting @Graeme  :D :D

Die to some late night drinking and eBay browsing, I now have a new watch. It's a pretty faithful remake of a model from 1970-71 that I've liked for years, however, the originals tend to be in poor condition and far more than I'm willing to pay.  I've already ordered a replacement NATO, as this silicone strap is cool looking, but not especially comfortable.

Nice!

And the world clearly needs more indigo flannels.
Think it, be it.

Is that the one that’s referred to as the surfboard?
