nice one! i almost bought that same watch, but went with the protrek instead because of the ability to readily use a nato strap. here’s mine with my manix in the woods. it’s now synced thanks to you.
Cool watch and knife, and I like the Hawaiian background foliage.
Yeah, after not wearing a watch for many years, my brother gave me a Victorinox Maverick. It’s a great watch, very durable, but whenever I banged it against metal at work, I’d worry about gouging or scratching the face. In truth it just seems to shrug off most impacts and scrapes, but I got a G-Shock anyway for work use.
I could well sympathise with newbies to Spyderco knives by the bafflement I felt when trying to learn about and choose a G-Shock. There were so many models that I would end up confused and not buying anything.
Finally I narrowed it down to the Rangeman, Mudmaster, or a Pro Trek. I ended up going with the Rangeman over the Pro Trek for having the G-Shock toughness, and it’s a bit smaller than the Mudmaster.
Yeah I haven’t tried a NATO strap, but I’ve had the Jaysandkays two piece strap for about a week, and it fits much better and is more comfortable than the resin strap. The strap also allows installation with the original Casio screw in steel bars, rather than the flimsy backup springbars it comes with.
