this strap is my favorite, used it every summer for 12/13 years on the aquatimer, the pictures are not mine but explain the concept. I have it also for the ecozilla. safe, comfortable, quickly adjustable, economical.
Really nice looking! I have taken liberty to post here photos from their site
Do you find the strap to keep safe with the velcro?
The IWC Aquatimer is also a very cool watch! My husband has an IWC but a pilot chronograph, very nice watch. It was the one that he was wearing when we got married almost 5 years ago and that he has with him for about 11 years now.
I wore that strap every summer for 12 or 13 years, the velcro never came loose. It is much faster to don than a zulu, and much faster to adjust, plus is extremely comfortable (no buckle, no retainers).
As I said, I like it so much that I bought it also for my ecozilla and just ordered a third one for the autozilla.
The only limitation I see is that this strap relies on the individual bars for it's safety, so I think it should be used only with screwbars (with Loctite) or with single shoulder (sometimes called shoulderless) springbars, which require drilled lugs (with thru holes I mean).
Like the Nato straps, in leather and also in ballistic nylon. I modify them cutting the part goes under the back of the watch, like old single strips watch bands.
Almost like this one.

Do like either leather, stainless and nato straps... depends on the watch and the purpose of the day.
Here is my favorite tool watch, usually worn with its original stainless in Paris and currently with nato straps on my 4 weeks journey in Indonesia :
