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.
Founded in 1801 the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst is where all British Army officers are trained. The academy’s motto is: ‘Serve to Lead’. Many international armed forces send their new officers to Sandhurst because it is recognised as a world-leading military training academy. The green Warrior strap could only ever have one name.
