Originally developed in the 70s by the British Ministry of Defence (MOD), the NATO 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.
This product is inspired by the traditional NATO / ZULU style but offered in a 2 piece watch strap.

Ok, let me start off with the good stuff about the actual leather. I really like the quality of the leather. It's got a really nice leathery smell, and pretty supple from the get go. Working the strap a bit does soften it even further.
But, if you have smaller wrists (mine are 6.5-inch for reference), then this strap would be too long. It's got enough holes, but the excess is just too much. The problem is that both keepers are fixed in place, which means that you'd have to try and fold the leather over to tuck the excess away. This isn't particularly comfortable on a smaller wrist, as this means that the bulge created by the excess sits right on the underside of the wrist.
I ended up having to cut the excess strap off, and now it sits perfectly for me.
If you need to cut yours, cut a piece off, and then use the piece you've just cut off as a template so that you can get a nice rounded edge. I used a hobby knife for this to get a nice, clean cut.
The hardware seems like really good quality, Absolutely nothing flimsy. However, it could use a bit of trimming. The keepers are fine, but the actual buckle is just too wide (33mm). On my Orient Ray (41.5mm), the size of the buckle draws attention away form the actual watch. Making it smaller would make everything look more in proportion.
Overall, it's a really great strap, but it's more intended for larger watches and wrists. Still a highly recommended strap from me though.
I bought this strap for my Laco pilots watch and it's perfect for it. I like the solid hide construction and lack of stitching and the quality is excellent.
Feel a bit lost on this one, the hardware is great and the general feel of the leather is ok, but for my feel the leather is far to thin, honestly feel like within a dozen or so wears it will be near breaking point. So I'm slightly disappointed.
great quality watch strap , fits my wrist like a glove what a difference from the stiff leather strap it replaced, and delivered in 24 hours ,this is my second strap from those people and i will buy more in the future. thank you
Ordered late Wednesday, arrived Friday; what more can you ask.
I bought a rather hefty dive style watch which came with a metal bracelet which I didn't really get on with so I ordered a cheap brown leather strap which was ok for seeing how the brown leather would work with the watch but it was a bit too thick and stiff, plus a tad too small in length for my wrists so wasn't overly comfy.
After a bit of research I plumped for this, which arrived today; so far so good
The colour is spot on, the leather is soft and supple and the length is spot on, whilst I was concerned at first about the relative thinness of the strap; 1.8mm, when paired to quite a hefty watch, when attached to the watch and having worn it for a few hours it is really comfortable and works very well with the watch.
I think I will splash out on a NATO style strap form the same company.
Oh and I particulalry like the contrast with the ivory stitching.
I got 2 of these for some watches that my husband won in an eBay auction. The service was really good, nicely packaged and very quick delivery.

Wonderful strap, very pleased with the service from this website. You just can't find these designs on the high street, certainly not where I live anyway. I fitted the strap to my Seiko diver's watch and it looks really good.
