    you can't. you need the two-piece NATO straps (and AW adapters). see my post above.

    So Hermès leather bands will be sold separately starting April 19. Would love to buy one but they cost more than my AWS at $340. Lels. I don't know.

    i tried out the gray nylon band for 42mm AW Sport and found it rather, hmmm, lacking (i dunno for what but still, lacking)...

    i would've settled for a scuba blue nylon but it's sold out, and then the Product Red original band is no more...

    so, i guess, i just stuck with my OOTB AW black band...

    Sorry for the typo error use of the article, "an". I can't edit anymore the post. Ngayon ko lang napansin, nakakahiya, English Major pa naman ako... Hehehe

    To justify this post, I got a 3rd party Leather Loop Midnight Blue. It feels good and nice to wear.

    Hi penmanila. May I ask the favor if you could please share me some specs of this strap, like the width measurement. And where on ebay can I get a pair of these? Thanks.
