Always thought that the Overseas bracelet looks really comfy but have never managed to try one on.

It’s fairly comfy. But I am not a bracelet person, all other watches on nato, leather or rubber. Don’t have the option to that with the VC due to the integrated bracelet.

That looks nice. How long was the wait?

The campaign started around March 20 last year, was meant to be ready in November but had a few delays along the way. Long long wait

Came with a nice travel pouch too, feels like real leather to me.

Yea i know what you mean, i took a chance on it and the delays did end up pissing me off. The guy behind it had a good track record on delivering though so i wasnt worried about being ripped off.
Main problem was the campaign got a lot bigger than he anticipated, Sold about 1300 watches instead of around 300. it had a few stretch goals that all got activated when the campaign hit all its targets in the first 5 minutes of going live
The ball bearing bezel assembly had issues so that slowed things down, he also had a new clasp with a divers extension(hasnt arrived yet) that had its problems.
Different colour dials, different bezels as well but it all seems to have come good for him.

I was wondering how it looked after we chatted about this a month ago. that looks amazing.

Does the Barton NATO get sweaty or itchy etc. as I've only worn leather straps.

No not itchy or sweaty at all. Very happy with it - as I am with all of the Barton straps I've bought.
