  • 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.

    Today, the NATO watch strap remains stylish, quick and easy to change, and gives added security to your watch in the event of 'popping a springbar' during vigorous activity. 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!

  • Wow....just wow.


    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.

    Nato warrior


    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






    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!

    Excellent Quality Strap - Great Service.


    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.!!

    Service & Quality, The Best....


    Great quality product, I have purchased four, 2 bronze & 2 brushed steel, the service I received was excellent,
    "I'll Be Back"

    Unique color, satin finish matches titanium watches.


    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.


    This is a product of high quality and excellent looks.



    Awesome and comfortable. Looks good with my Alpina.

    Nato Bond Originale


    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

    Beautiful color and well made, but too thin.


    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.

    Hard to Beat Quality, Originality and Service


    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.

    Too thin


    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.

    Soft Nato, excellent hardware and great color!


    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


    Lovely strap, been wearing for a few months. Always strikes a conversation with watch connoisseur.



    Saluti dall'Italia.
    Il prodotto è fantastico.

    good nato but it is quite long


    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.,

    Five Stars


    Love it!

    Five Stars


    great product

    Excellent strap


    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

    Nice strap


    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

    Best NATO


    As advertised. Arrived quickly. Best NATO type strap I have bought.

    Five Stars


    Came quick, looks sharp!

    Don't let this cool strap be for only boys!!!!


    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!

    Great quality


    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

    Good Service


    bought vintage bond strap will buy
    from them again there watches look good to

    good nato strap


    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.

    Five Stars


    A great quality NATO strap, one of the better ones I've had and it's very long.
