  • High quality ZULUDIVER branded nylon ZULU watch strap.

    Originally developed in the 70s by the British Ministry of Defence (MOD), the strap was actually named G10 because of the service personnel's form they had to complete in order to receive one. Its popularity amongst other regiments led to other colours & patterns.

    Today, it's the well known NATO style fashionable watch strap we all wear. NATOs are durable, changeable, strong and used in sporting activities. The design (interweaving, passing through lugs) means it's secure.

    These are thicker and stronger than a standard NATO strap and have the larger ZULU buckles.

    The BEST NATO STRAP TO DATE

    Rating:

    Those are THE BEST NATO STRAP EVER FOUND (in about two decades).

    I was used to change the "NATO style strap" every 6-8 months, because it was falling a part (chemicals, sunlight, dirt, can kill it very fast).

    Right now, i am using one of those "189 NATO strap", since 9 months and it still in PRISTINE conditions.

    It is SO THICK and tough, that also the hole (that i use the most) still perfect (not enlarged, nor frayed).

    I wear the same watch/strap every day (i work, dive, take shower, and sleep with it too) 24/7/365 (on a Marathon mechanical GSAR; so a "medium weight" watch).

    I can only recommend this "189 NATO strap" BIG TIME.

    Review of the "Black model, with brushed stainless fitting".

    P.S.
    I am buying right now the same one but with "black PVD fitting", and i will made a review of it in a few months (just to check the "PVD coating").

    P.P.S.
    Also the "ZULUDIVER 298 RUBBER strap", sold on this site is VERY GOOD (just a bit short; if you have an huge rest, probably is not long enough for you. AMAZING QUALITY ANYWAY).


    Oh some people...

    If you READ the description, it says these are made thicker & beefier than standard NATO straps. They are indeed...and well worth every penny!
    I believe you'll only need to buy one every 10yrs if you wear it daily & actually do "manly-work".
    THE 189 SHOULD BE THE STANDARD! Thanks WG Team for the service, products, website, and ease of purchase for us U.S. customers!


    Sturdy stable strap

    Rating:

    Best NATO strap I own. Nice thicker and sturdier strap with quality hardware. Keeps the watch stable, even on my large Deep Blue Military Diver. Not flimsy like some other brands. I own 7 or 8 of these. Highly recommended.


    Uncomfortable

    Rating:

    The nylon material used for this strap is the worst nylon I ever seen on a nato strap. It's extremely rigid and result uncorfortable. The others ZULU I've tried from WatchGecko (the green and the grey ones) are clearly better.


    WoW, i mean WOW !

    Rating:

    Never really liked NATOs, I think its the smaller square rings that put me off & thinner material. I really like ZuluDiver stuff & was impressed with a friends one of these i saw. Thought i would want a 3 ring one but as none available got this for my SKX007. The strap is substantial, the material is thick, i got the satin ring version, very nice. Stitching is strong & consistant. After over a week on the wrist, I wasnt getting on with the bulk of strap on the outside of my wrist. I'm a bit of a slim jim. So i used a sharp tip soldering iron at work & converted it to a 3 ring ZULU style, took 4 passes before cut through & sealed. Worn with the buckle & fold back under my wrist looks neater on me. Totally love it, Would buy another (3 ring) once this wears out, Going to be a while i think. This is staying on the SKX perm now, cant see anything replacing it. Hardwearing, waterproof, neat, well made. Absolutely fantastic for the money, love it. WoW, yeah WOW !

    Best quality and comfort. The best Zulu strap I have brought to date.


    The Return of Michael Caine*

    Rating:

    I reviewed this strap over a year ago in its 24mm, satin guise and it is still going strong. This time it's for the 22mm PVD version and it is just as good as its fatter brother, this one is making my Seiko SRPA81J look even more menacing.

    Only time will tell how long the IP coating will last but if I get the same amount of wear out of this strap that I've had out of my 24mm then I'll be happy, epecially at WG's great price.

    *Disclaimer: Michael Caine never left as he was never actually here in the first place, but he would have been if he needed a quality, black, Zulu strap (maybe).


    A heavy duty Zulu/Nato watchband

    Rating:

    Heavy 20mm Nylon Strap, almost 12" - Satin finish durable hardware. Goes well with my Shinola Brakeman Watch.


    Great strap!

    Rating:

    Amazing strap! As thick as I hoped it would be, Its definitely going to last a long while. Only complaints are that the 130mm length is just a tad short for my wrists and the double ring end is a little tight not allowing to use the proper zulu backover the rings when installing the strap, I can live with both of these issues though and will order another in the future for sure when the time comes.


    Don't Shoot Until You See the Whites of Their Eyes!

    Rating:

    I have my Seiko SUN019 on this strap, it's quite a large watch at 48mm and quite weighty but it feels fantastic on this 24mm ZULU.

    At 300mm it's pretty much the correct length, many other ZULU/NATO straps fall short of this and either aren't suitable for a larger wrist or at least won't double-back tuck. Being 1.5mm it's thicker than most other's I've tried and while it's thinner than canvas straps it's nylon construction allows it to shed water much better than the canvas types. There's absolutely no sharp or rough points, either on the strap ends, edges or buckle holes; no cheapo hot knife cuts here.

    The stainless steel hardware is bead blasted to a nice satin finish and the buckle is tastefully finished with the laser etched logo. It's all solidly stitched together which really gives me confidence that it's pretty much bombproof, I know my watch is staying put, and it looks good while doing it.

    In conclusion, this strap has been given the Michael Caine* seal of approval.

    *Legal Disclaimer: Michael Caine nether endorses or condones the above statement, but he probably would if he tried this strap.


    Very military style

    Rating:

    Wonderful Zulu Strap. Very strong and military style. The best Zulu I have ever bought


    Extreme strap for big watches, awesome look.

    Rating:

    Awesome build quality, good enough for towing a car. But maybe i bit too much. Very stiff and less comfortable than regular Nato straps. Hope it will get softer after a while. But it will give any chunky watch over 44mm a unique look on the other side. I love the look of the all black version. But you need good space between the watch case and the spring bar!


    Great but not for me

    Rating:

    Great build and awesome quality ! However it is (too) thick for me, not that comfortable at the end, much less than the NATO range.
