Bought this because I thought the red tint would go well with my Orient Mako 2 Black, which has a red tipped second hand, and boy does it ever. I've never had as many compliments about a watch or in particular a watch strap before.
Add to that the fact that it's extremely comfortable and looks very unique compared to the traditional nato bond strap, and you've got a great combination. Definitely worth going for.
Updated review after two weeks of use. All my comments from the first review still stand, however the stop pin holes fray easily. Though the fabric is resilient, the holes are getting progressively larger which will place a shorter-than-expected life on this strap.
Purchased to accompany my new Mondaine Stop2Go watch. The 20mm width is a perfect fit, the red is vibrant without being obnoxious. More importantly, the material - while waiting for my watch to arrive I ordered four NATO/G10 straps (one from WatchGecko). Only the WatchGecko one fits, the others are too thick and will not fit between the pin and the case. The hardware is of a high standard and appreciate having the option for a satin finish for subtlety. I just wish there was a white/black version!
Very nice material, close weave with a crisp contrasting stripe down the edge. Feels very nice to wear, it's a good length to tuck the loose end back under.
The satin hardware is spot-on, and has a very tactile finish with no roughness. As mentioned elsewhere, the label has a tendency to peek out from underneath the watch, but it doesn't bother me too much.
Doesn't stretch when wet, and dries out quickly.
After a week or so of wear, the hole is beginning to stretch and deform a little with some loose threads beginning to come away from the heat sealing. Not sure this will get any worse and tear any further, but I guess this is the trade off you make for such a soft weave material.
These are just a bit too thin in my opinion. They feel wonderful. They tend to fold/crease at the holes on the underside of your wrist. If they were 0.1 thicker but using the same weave pattern, these would probably be ideal
Obviously more colors would also be helpful as well.
These are, without exaggeration, truly fantastic NATO straps. You can tell just from the photos that the nylon weave in these straps are a lot tighter than your run of the mill NATO. I ordered 3 of these straps based on the pictures alone, and I am absolutely delighted by them.
My benchmark for the best NATO strap is the OEM Omega NATO, which is thick, smooth and sturdy. This prototype comes darned close for 1/10th the price. The only downside is that it is thinner than the Omega, but that could actually be an advantage if you like less material between the watch and your wrist.
My only critique? A desperate need for more colour options, especially a grey/black Bond version!
TL;DR: This level of quality at this sort of prices? An absolute no brainer.
A very nice matching strap to go with my Geckota K1 V24. It is very smooth and nice to touch. Very well made and definitely worth the money. I've had the same issue with the Zuludiver tag as the other reviewer to start with. However, I suggest it is tucked under the pin alongside the strap and it will not slip out anymore as the pin will keep it in place and straight. Thank you Watchgecko.
Love the strap. Would be even better if there was a 24mm option. I have an Orient diver crying out for a black/orange Zulu!
If there was such thing as lingere for your watch this strap would be it. All of these prototype straps are very well made and soft on the skin, but this one is extra silky and prompted me to write the first review of all the ones I recveived. The hardware is on point, not flimsy like straps from other sellers, and the zuludiver engraving on the buckle is a classy touch. The lenght is also good and the material is easy to fold over and tuck back into the keepers. I didn't believe the colors would be so sharp and vibrant but they are indeed as bright as the pictures make them out to be. The only thing I would suggest for a change on these straps is to stitch both ends of the zuludiver tag as it slips out the side a bit and needs to be tucked back in.
