This rubber strap is the only one I'd buy on the tang buckle. It's extremely flexible and very comfortable on the wrist.

My new strap finally arrived and I put it on my Navi shortly after it showed up. I can't believe I've worn this watch for so long without ever considering a rubber strap! The first six years I owned and wore this watch we lived on a tropical island, and this strap surely would've been useful there.

My wife picked out this strap for my birthday, although I was concerned that the "Breitling" on the strap would be too overt for my taste. I'm not the kind of guy to ever wear a Breitling hat or other branded swag. I'm happy to say it's more subtle than the picture shows. I decided to go with a tang buckle, as I was worried that I'd scratch up the deployment buckle with all the activities I have planned for this strap. I'll see how it goes when I take it flying this weekend.

For me the most confortable strap in Breitling brand is the leather strap. I love it. For me rubber isnt enough smooth and steel is very hard to setup fine.
I never try Breitling nylon strap but people seems to love it

I enjoyed the rubber strap so much yesterday that I'm already considering buying another one, this time with a deployment buckle -- you know, just for scientific research. Oh, what a slippery slope we climb!

The Nato strap is very comfortable. I wore my SOHC on it for a few weeks and loved it. I still prefer the rubber mesh strap in terms of fit to the Nato but I'd recommend anyone interested to pick one up.
