By popular demand this version of our beautifully crafted NATO features a dark blue base with vintage red and olive green stripes, just like the original.
As with all our NATO straps, we're sure you will notice that your strap is very well made, for durability, strength and a long service life. The attention to detail extends to the carefully sewn-in green and gold label. As you would expect, the Vintage Bond NATO is available in a choice of widths to suit popular watch lug sizes.
The NATO watch strap was originally developed in the 70s by the British Ministry of Defence (MOD). The strap was often called "G10" because of the requisition form that service personnel used to get their strap from Quartermaster's Stores.

Because our NATOs are so reasonably priced and easy to change, you can have a selection of different styles to suit your mood and day's activities – including, of course, a Vintage Bond NATO!
We also have a selection of different buckle finishes for this product; polished silver, satin silver, satin black (PVD IP plated) and antique bronze effect (PVD IP plated).

I have owned this strap for two years now. The stitching and buckle holes are still in great shape and this strap still looks great and feels comfortable despite all the swimming, sweat and humidity.
Nice and comfortable
Love this strap. The material feels far superior and more comfortable to wear than any other strap I own.
Good quality strap, strong but pliable fabric. Carefully sealed holes and edges. Well worth its price!
BUT: why oh why does no Vintage or Real or whatever post BluRay Bond release NATO come with the correct dark blue stripe? The pictures sort of lead you to think that this strap features faded olive, dark burgundy and dark navy blue stripes. Sorry, but it is not blue but jet black to my eyes.
Please make a Swiss Premium out of it with correct dark blue stripes and better hardware..
Very attractive strap and way better than I thought it would be, looks great on my C2 Aviator makes it look even more old school and very smart.

Very quick delivery, reasonable price and a fantastic strap that I enjoy wearing!
I came across this website the other year after contatly buying cheap nato off eBay. First nato strap I bought from here was a leather nato and feel in love with the quality straight away and never bought from another company since I love the design and quality of the watch straps and this vintage bond looks perfect for my citizen eco drive field watch the colour matches it perfect and you know the nato straps from here are gonna last year's
In the past I'd always stayed away from Bonds but I put one of these with bronze buckles on a vintage Gruen dress watch and it looks amazing. The colors have deep, mellow tone that can stand up to a vintage watch without making it look cheap.
Just received this strap. Best strap I've seen. Will soon be ordering another strap for my Seiko 5. I am a retired U.S Marine and have looked for a strap this good for years. Keep up the good work, and you will surely get more of my business. Excellent delivery time received the strap in 4 days.
What can I say that hasn't already been uttered here. Exudes quality.
Just received this band. Super fats post and comms from WG. The good. Its nice and soft and the colours are great - very close to the GF original. Its also nice and long leading to a nice NATO tuck. The not so good. Its thinner than I thought - and not the 1.2 - 1.3 stated - nearer 1. Really want a nice thick version of this closer to Omegas. Hard to source in the UK. The hardware is also nothing to write home about - functional but not top quality, std NATO quality. The brand logo flap while a nice touch makes it hard to tuck the second strap and convert to a RAF type single strap.
Happy for the price but would also easily pay more for one with a thicker strap and better hardware,
Great strap, it matches my Seiko pepsi diver perfectly . The length is just right . The material thickness is thin enough that it does not push the watch away from your wrist yet still very strong and supple . Please do not change anything .

Just received this for my Hydroconquest (L3.7184.108.40.206), and the strap feels and looks great! Would recommend! Quick standard shipping to Germany as well.
This my first NATO watch strap from WatchGecko and it is the best I have ever worn. I will likely never own an expensive watch (currently wearing a Casio Dive watch MDV106-1A) but I sure feel like I am wearing a
Rolex!!! My first NATO strap for this watch was nylon but very stiff and felt like it was not made to be worn. This watchstrap feels so comfortable! I will absolutely order more watch straps from WatchGecko again!!
High quality materials and authentic and accurate colours which looks fantastic on my SeaDweller 116600. Great service as usual from WG with super fast delivery.
Ordered this strap in antique bronze,its my 3rd strap from watch gecko,i find the service excellent and the products.I have a 24ml Longines diver chronograph,so this strap and the two vintage bond zulu diver purchased from you guys at WG really enhance the appearance of my watch,thanks also for nice packaging,cleaning cloth,spring bars,etc.I will purchase again.
This strap's pattern and colours are really identical as those in the Goldfinger.
It could be a bit thicker, but that's not a huge issue for me.
The strap arrived very promptly after ordering - just 5 days from order entry to receipt, and shipping to the US, no less! The quality of the strap and hardware are great, and it comes with three additional pins. The nylon is very soft and supple to the touch, and although the strap is quite long, the excess strap tucks into the rings for a nice clean look.
Ok I bought my first nato from here a few weeks back and I was really impressed, so came back to order two more and my thoughts are WOW. I am seriously liking this one, I was a little unsure to be honest, I have no interest about the bond connection, I just liked it.
It arrived today and put it on my Orient ray raven 2 and wow, I bought the pvd version f the strap it looks really nice, quality is really nice to I am just very happy and the service from Watch Gecko is superb - I like the fact they are a local company to me also.
Looks awesome on my Seiko SKX009, very stylish, very comfortable and a gorgeous colour scheme, if there is 1 criticism it would be the inner green label stating "WatchGecko", it nearly always sticks out of the side when being worn, needs to be tucked in quite a bit, but this is really Nit picking, you'll not be disappointed if you buy this Nato
DEAR WATCHGEKO, MY NATO VINTAGE BOND (WOVEN LABEL) IS PUNCTUALLY ARRIVED. WONDERFUL STRAP FOR THOSE WHO LIKE ELEGANCE AND STRENGTH FOR MY GTO-DINO 24mm. THANK YOU SO MUCH..!

This strap goes perfectly with the colout scheme on the dial of my Seiko Prospex Baby Tuna Diver SRP655K1. My only wish is that it is made of thicker and less 'filmsy' material to complement the usually big faced watches that go with such strap. Not sufficient for me to deduct any stars though, so all 5 stars!
This is a great quality strap and looks superb on my Hamilton Khaki Navy GMT. Initially I wasn't sure about getting this as the watch lug size is 21mm, and the strap is 22mm. A quick call to Watchgecko where I spoke with Tasha who was most helpful and assured me that if the 22mm doesn't fit or it looks as though it is rolling over slightly then to send the strap back. I am glad I ordered this as it fits well with no issues and looks brilliant.
Thank you Tasha and Watchgecko for your service.!!
Great quality product, I have purchased four, 2 bronze & 2 brushed steel, the service I received was excellent,
"I'll Be Back"
Nice color with some stylish shine. Good length which will fit writs over 20cm. I bought one with the buckle in "satin" finish which perfectly matches a titanium watch! Could be thicker to give an even more quality impression, mine is only 1.0 mm.
This is a product of high quality and excellent looks.
Awesome and comfortable. Looks good with my Alpina.
Prodotto ottimo!! Vero nato JamesBond
Fattura di qualità con tre anse in omaggio.
Spedizione ottima,veloce e sicura
Il cinturino dona un fascino strepitoso al propio segnatempo
Colors are unique, It fits very well with K1 V27.
Quality seems good.
Only default is thickness: given for 1.2mm, it's, in reality, less than 1mm, and it's needed with big watch.
The hues of colour being navy, olive green and a cardinal red are original and very hard to find. The quality of the soft weave are excellent as to is the brushed hardware - length could be construed as long even for my 7.5inch wrist, but the overall quality is superior and service was exemplary.
Only four stars, but for the fact I found it too thin. The Bond Classic has perfect thickness. I was hoping the Vintage Bond was the same thickness, but I guess it's straying true to it's original. However I would like to see an option for a thinker version.
First thing, I was pleasantly surprise at the speed of delivery to the US on the regular mail price, only 5 business days.
As for the Strap, couldn't be happier. This was aimed for a Titanium watch and I was hoping the matte finish would match and IT DID!!! woohoo! The strap is very soft, about 12inches long and very high quality. Thanks WatchGecko!!
Lovely strap, been wearing for a few months. Always strikes a conversation with watch connoisseur.
Il prodotto è fantastico.
its a bit long, but i do like the green label i have not seen others with that label so it is unique i think.,
Excellent NATO strap. Only comment I would make is the green label between the actual strap can allow the watch head to move around a little if not fastened very tightly. Might be better without it. A small point and not enough to knock off a star
Only been wearing for a few days but i like it. Another reviewer stated that their watch had a little movement due to the tag, i am not having this problem with mine, its fine. The strap, considering its nato, has a surprisingly premium look and feel to it. I like it alot. Will try posting a pic at some point
As advertised. Arrived quickly. Best NATO type strap I have bought.
Came quick, looks sharp!
This is an excellent strap. I needed a good strap for my husband's vintage Omega Seamaster which was kept unused and forgotten for ages but has just gone through complete repair. It appeared rather beautiful so I decided to "borrow" it. Only problem was to find a right quality strap which would complement the watch, easy to put on myself, not chunky and finally, fits my rather small wrist (this was the hardest bit). So after some research I went for a NATO type for a try. And this strap just did all the task!! Yes, it's long but you can fold it back through the loop and it was easy. I am so happy that that rather sad looking Omega now looks so cool. The colour is very chic, or “grown-up” I would say, so I can wear this to anywhere. Very comfortable as well. Now I have to watch out – my husband wants it back!! I would recommend this to anyone - men AND women!
Really great quality material fits and feels nice on the wrist and suits my watch 10/10 this is where i will get my watch straps from now on thank you
bought vintage bond strap will buy
from them again there watches look good to
alan weigh manchester
as the other review says this is very long, which I like, because it means I can fold it back on itself. i used to buy nato straps on ebay from monkeysnag but seems much better quality. thank you watchgecko for a good product at a good price i would recommend this product.
i don't want to give my name
A great quality NATO strap, one of the better ones I've had and it's very long.
