You are most likely using the "double loop" method when wearing your NATO strap

The "Double loop" - this is the "standard" way of using a NATO strap and can cause some watches to sit quite high.

The "Single Loop"  - Using this method, there is only one layer of nylon between the watch and your wrist - therefore the watch will sit lower.
