    The very popular “Classic Bond” NATO Watch Strap captures the essence of the NATO (or "G10") strap developed by Britain's Ministry of Defence (MOD) in the 1970s. The strap is often called the "G10" after the requisition-form that service personnel had to fill out to get one from Quartermaster's Stores. Over the years, popularity amongst different regiments and civilian wearers alike has led to a wide range of colours and patterns.

    Today, it's the well-known, stylish NATO watch strap we all wear – durable, easily changeable, strong and often used during sporting activities. The time-tested design (interweaving and passing through the lugs) ensures added security for your watch if a springbar pops out during vigorous activity. As with all our NATOs, this example of our classic NATO watch strap has been carefully crafted with sturdy stitched joints for a long service life complementing your favourite watches.

    Thank you

    Fantastic quality


    Supple and comfortable from the off. Great to be able to get a quality nato strap in 23mm for my Citizen BN0100. Super fast service. All my straps will probably come from WatchGecko from now on!

    Excellent product


    My first Nato strap purchase and it's really comfortable and well made. It looks great on my Fortis Cosmonaut.



    Fantastic service. Great quality strap. Will be shopping here again

    Great quality NATO straps


    Great quality for the money. I've ordered 4 NATO straps from Watch Gecko now and I've never been disappointed. You won't find better for the money. Now if only they sold 19mm Olive Green NATO's.... :-)

    Quaily Product, Quality Service!


    Looked at a few brands initially making Nato Straps, and decided to go with WatchGecko. Let me say this without a doubt the service and quality and the product and company has been 5 stars. I bought the Bond nato black and grey 22mm for my Tudor Black bay, it is a match made in heaven. The strap quality and finishing is lovely. Its extremely comfortable and not so stiff that it rubs. I ordered late Monday night and it was posted through the letter box first thing Wednesday morning, excellent delivery service. Will be ordering again in the very near future. Thanks guys!

    First class company to deal with.


    First class service and delivery. The packaging was absolutely top notch so goods arrived in perfect condition. I could have bought something cheaper but I wanted a quality strap and didn’t mind paying a bit extra and that’s exactly what arrived, also a nice little touch to supply some spring bars with the strap. Any more NATOs that I buy will be purchased from Watch Gecko. An excellent buying experience. Well done to your team.

    Flash for little cash


    Quality strap which looks spot on with my Casio Duro 200.

    Great on Rollie Submariner


    Grey / Black version looks excellent on Submariner date. Wearing daily for 3 months, some very slight elongation of the hole which I don't expect to get ant worse now.

    Spot on


    This strap will transform your watch. I got this for to go on a racing style black and white face which I hadn't worn for quite while. It transformed the look of the watch and got it back into some serious wrist time. The strap takes a few wears to settle in but once worn in is comfy and just looks great. What more do you want. It arrived quickly as well.

    Fantastic Quality


    Ordered one of these for my 7002, looks and feels amazing, slightly shiny gunmetal bands which suit the watch perfect, will probably go on my skx031 at some point too for true bond vibes!

    Everything that I want


    Excellent quality & beautiful product. I am a very happy customer!



    I got this 18mm Nato strap for my Seiko 5 and very happy with the purchase. It looks just like the strap on Bond's Omega watch from Spectre. Great quality and super fast shipping. 5 Stars for WatchGecko!

    Excellent quality, low price and rapid delivery!


    Ordered this strap first thing in the morning, received it the next day. Rapid free delivery. Strap was well packaged and received some spare spring bars free too. Amazing service! Working in watch sales, I appreciate the quality of this strap! Definitely will be a returning customer.

    Excellent quality for the price. Superb customer experience


    I ordered this Nato Bond Strap with polished finish hardware for my Omega Speedmaster having bought a fleabay one previously.
    I wasn't disappointed. Great quality and looks fantastic. Don't get me wrong, this is still not close to the quality of Omega's own straps, but also not grossly over charged at £140.
    Customer service experience was very positive and the strap was with me in less than 2 working days (ordered Saturday arrived Tuesday on standard delivery). Well packaged & the assorted freebees were a nice touch.
    I've already recommended the site to friends and have lined up my next couple of purchases.



    Good looking, Good quality, Affordable price. Some company offers more cheap one, however their products are poor quality of hardware and fabric. Gecko’s superior balance of quality and price.I'm really satisfied with it!

    Looks really good!


    Very nice Bond NATO strap. Looks great and unbeatable at that price!

    Mr. Bond would wear this strap


    I have this strap with "satin" (brushed) buckle finish. Very nice. I don't think you can find a better black-grey Bond NATO strap.

    A Quality Product and Great Service


    I ordered this Nato Bond Strap with brushed finish hardware for my Bulova Moon Watch.
    I wasn't disappointed. Great quality and looks fantastic. Very easy to fit.
    Customer service experience was very positive, I was updated on my order status and the strap was with me in less than 2 working days. Well packaged & protected and the polishing cloth included was a nice touch.
    I've already recommended the site to friends and have lined up my next couple of purchases.

    The best value aftermarket NATO out there!


    Love the way this strap looks and feels on my SKX007. Great quality and amazing value. I ordered the black hardware which looks really classy. Very quick delivery.

    Super Fast Free over-seas shipping


    The NATO was as expected in terms of quality. I was happy they offered bronze hardware to match my bronze Archmede. But was really impressed me the most was that even with the free shipping, I received the straps in New York just 3 days after ordering!

    Great Strap - Great Service!!


    Excellent well made strap. Looks superb on my Omega Speedmaster Reduced. Excellent service from Watchgecko. Will definitely be using the company again,



    As usual excellent service, delivery timing and packaging from WG. The strap itself is very long, very comfortable and clearly good value for money. I bought it for my Seiko UFO and am very happy I did.

    The quality is very good, if you have been searching for a close to OEM quality nato without paying crazy price, this is the one.and delivery time is short.





    Beautiful NATO strap. It dresses up my Sinn 356 quite nicely. Well worth the price. Excellent service, too.

    Great product, Great price.


    Great product, Great price. Looks exactly like the product image on the website. Very comfortable as well! I ordered 4 other products and cannot wait to try them all!!



    Excellent quality. Looks the and feels the dogs. Well worth the money. Paid only a little less for another similar strap from another seller and it was crap.

    Will definitely use this seller again. Thank for the strap.

    Quality Product.


    Prompt delivery and quality product. Used it to replace steel bracelet on Omega SM as diver clasp has come loose. Looks good and makes a nice temporary change; will fit to my Luminox when SM strap fixed. Highly recommended.



    The nylon strap is of an excellent quality and it looks and feels great. It was very easy to fit and the addition of the extra watch case strap pins are a nice touch if you damage/lose the original pins in your watch - which I nearly did when one of them went flying across the room when I tried to remove it!!

    Watch Strap


    Brought for a present

    It can fit a 19 mm lug width.


    Very smart and elegant watch strap. It's very good quality!!

    Old fashioned good service!


    BRILLIANT really shows other sellers how to produce quality! Great service and excellent delivery thanks.



    Ordered this one and a comparable one at a different website. The one of Watchgecko is a little more expensive, be you'll get this back in quality. It felt stronger and softer at the same time.
    I have a small wrist but you can easily felt the strap so it fits nicely.

    its brilliant and well worth the money


    My Rolex recently went in for a service so I dug out my 40 year old diving watch but it needed a new strap so I bought this,its brilliant and well worth the money.

    Five Stars


    Great product 5 stars would buy again

    It looks very nice in person (as it does in photos too).


    It looks very nice in person. I replaced leather strap on my hamilton khaki king.

    It came with free spring bars/pins, which is very useful if you try to mount and unmount the strap by yourself as you can possibly damage the original spring bars due to lack of experience.

    I'd say it's a bit pricey, but nowadays anything that is a quality product costs a lot. And this is a quality product.

    Just like the SPECTRE watch strap


    Excellent quality watch strap, superb service (from ordering to through my post box in less than 24 hours). Although the watch in SPECTRE hasn't yet been identified by the James Bond online forums, the nato strap has and this is your best bet if you can't afford the Omega version which is £100+

    Great quality and fast dispatch too


    Superb NATO strap. I initially ordered the nato strap for my old work watch, however it's really well made and finished I'd consider putting it on my Omega Seamaster. Great quality and fast dispatch too
