    Vintage US type NATO


    This is the first strap I’ve had from watchgecko and I’m pleased with it. I like the fact that it doesn’t have the additional strap section and extra metal buckles of traditional nato straps; this gives it a clean uncomplicated look, I think. I have put it on my green dial seiko snzg09j1 and it really sets the watch off. The fabric is soft, comfortable and seems good quality. The buckle sits in a comfortable position under my wrist, not too far off to one side. Very good strap, I will certainly buy from here again.

    NOT navy;It’s black!


    This is NOT navy. It’s a slighly faded black. This won’t work with my Omega Seamaster. Darn. I request you guys take new photos of this in sunlight alongside black items and you’ll see that the strips are indeed black, not navy. Oh, well. I’ll keep it for my other watch as a backup I guess.

    Almost Perfect; Can't wait to get mine!


    Stunning design with only one minor flaw. The 1964 James Bond Goldfinger strap had a center navy blue stripe that was noticeably thicker than the side navy stripes. Otherwise, this strap is perfect and I cannot wait to receive mine! It'll look like hot bollocks with my Goldeneye Omega Seamaster! Thanks from the U.S. East Coast!



    Looks great in my Seagull 1963 !!. Excellent quality and very fast shipping to Spain!. Excellent customer service I Will repeat.



    What a comfortable and gorgeous strap! It feels great and supports my Orient Defender quite nicely. I would definitely order again.

    No1 for classic dive watches


    Made the order from Hungary and got in less then two days. I will use it on my Steinhart OVM and it is absolutely gorgeous. Was looking for the genuine Bond strap for a while but I was only aware of the standard NATO version until I found Watchgecko. Very happy with the purchase. Also got the dark brown Zuludiver 335, very nice vintage piece.

    Close to perfect


    Probably the most color and style accurate Bond strap, perfectly designed, well made and comfortable. With just a little less fraying around the holes it would be absolutely perfect.

    Great 007 James Bond belt !


    Supple and comfortable outstanding!
    You are James Bond!

    My all time favorite straps, the most comfortable, great quality


    Watchgecko straps have become some of my favorite straps out of my entire collection. I actually have this vintage bond color in the traditional nato strap, and loved it so much I decided I had to get this too. Plus I wanted to get the "authentic" Bond style strap! . And this is perfect. I couldn't be happier. I love these straps with the soft keepers. Also, this is the Original/correct color and style strap Bond wore! So I highly recommend this to anyone! Don't even think about it, you will be happy you ordered! These have become my go to straps. I also have this style in black, another favorite of mine. Some of the most comfortable out there! If you're thinking about it, I say buy. You will not be disappointed, IMO

    THE correct Connery Bond strap!


    These straps are superb, the correct colours, the correct format (ie not a NATO) for any correct Connery Bond replica, which is why I recommend them for my reps (see RWI)! 20mm looks great but 18mm is better if you want the real Bond look.

    Very comfortable and classy.


    The strap is made from a softer, more flexible and slightly thinner material than other nato's making it very comfortable. I opted for the satin finish, which goes well with the subdued colour scheme. That combined with a blisteringly fast service makes me a happy customer.

    quality bond nato


    Really comfortable material and worth the upgrade from the cheapo bond natos you see on major shopping sites. The USM style is also a very refined design and the colours are spot-on. I especially like the inside label!

    Good comfortable strap


    Excellent strong comfortable strap in the right color but too long, had to shorten it but now it is perfect.

    Good quality. Good design.


    Good. Not too thin, or thick.

    It seems sturdy.

    One good thing about the design is that you can ensure that the metal buckle is clear of the underside of your wrist, so that you are no scratching up laptop bases when you write. Other nato-style straps have extra metal buckles, so this scores over that kind of design for me.

    The holes and edging are all sealed off OK, and I am confident that the strap will last longer than most leather ones I have used.

    for the Bond fan!


    Fantastic strap, really gets the feel of the 1964 original, but most notably too long for a non-NATO strap as had to be folded over into the loop. Looks fantastic on a Rolex- style watch though.

    Cool looking strap.


    A great looking strap and represents good value for money. Easy to fit and comfortable to wear.

    Excellent strap


    Bought this to put on my Pebble watch (original style) and it looks awesome.

    Lightweight (but strong) so comfy to wear.

    Also ordered a black nato strap from Watchgecko at the same time and that is also Damn good. Thicker than this one but still a good looker if you want just black.

    Very happy to use Watchgecko again.
