I have the MX10 watch with the 'plastic' strap. I use the watch intermittantly, mainly on night shifts, wearing my Seiko for day to day use.
I was very disappointed that the strap broke across a pair of locating holes after less than 2 years use. Luckily, I was wearing long sleeved coat with the wrist adjustment pulled tight, otherwise the watch could very easily have been lost.
The service from Nite when I ordered a replacement was excellent, but I think that on a £200 watch, the strap should be substantially more robust - possibly with reinforcing braid incorporated in the design, particularly when the failure of the part can lead to the loss of the watch.
If the watch does last for the maximum possible useful life of 25 years, I could end up spending over £228 on straps at todays prices. I consider this unacceptable and detracts from what is otherwise a very useful and well built timepiece.
