If you are a regular WatchGecko follower, then you’ll need no introduction to our military straps. Doubtless, you will have a fine collection which can fundamentally change the appearance of your watch. With so many contemporary designs and colours we sometimes lose sight of the humble origins of this type of strap; the strap which spawned the phenomenon – the cryptically titled A.F.0210. The A.F.0210. single pass canvas webbing strap which first appeared around 1944 and is now synonymous with British military equipment of World War 2. It is the archetypal military strap, and eventually evolved in the 1970s to the G1098 we know today.
To honour this history, ZULUDIVER has created a new collection of military colour canvas woven straps which we have titled Warrior. The new webbing was developed with inspiration from canvas fabric, and is a blend of polyester and pure cotton yarn. After extensive testing we found the perfect ratio of the materials to produce a robust fabric with a canvas look.
The WARRIOR range have all been named after famous military HQs and Academies.
- Fitted with stainless steel buckle and hardware.
- Historic British military design.
- Made from high-quality 1.6mm thick woven nylon.
The Commando Training Centre (Royal Marines) is the main military training centre for that unit. It is located near the village of Lympstone in Devon, England. The site was created in 1940 to prepare Commandos for dangerous WW2 missions. The arduous Commando Course is 32 weeks of intensive covert combat training. Definitely the place for a camouflage strap.
