NATO versatility and tough, aged crazy horse leather
Style, versatility, and the beauty of a high-quality leather come together perfectly when you add this NATO strap to your collection.
For a long life and continued build up of character and patina over the years ahead, we've sourced a really nice oiled crazy horse natural leather (also called saddleback and distressed leather) for this addition to our NATO strap range. This is where the iconic 1970s NATO watch strap design meets the spirit of the Old West, but without a horse in sight. By the way, be reassured that the crazy horse name doesn't mean the leather comes from horses! In fact, the name originates from the leather's traditional use for fine equine saddlery.
Even after you've enjoyed the timeless aroma of new leather as you open your new purchase, each crazy horse leather NATO strap has another secret. As you enjoy wearing your premium leather NATO strap over the years, it will gradually take on an increasingly vintage leather look from being rubbed or scuffed. In fact, within reason, the harder you wear and live with your crazy horse leather NATO, the better it will look. You see, over time the leather will absorb natural oils from your skin and gain the rich, glossy sheen that only enhances your strap's rugged good looks.
Your strap (available in 20 mm and 22 mm widths) has been carefully stitched with strong coloured thread and fitted with a solid stainless steel buckle and three keeper rings. You'll know you've got a genuine leather NATO strap every time you see ZULUDIVER branded onto the underside of the leather.
Are you ready for a touch of crazy horse style and versatility? Treat yourself today!
Please note due to the way that this leather is produced that it is possible that a small amount of colour from the strap may be transferred to your skin and clothing.

I like the strap because it's comfortable to wear, but after wearing it on my Seiko 5 SNK809 for only a little over three months I'm more than a bit disappointed in how shabby it looks already - especially near the buckle where the fraying makes it looks like I've had it for years. It's not a big problem for me as it's only my cheap daily beater, but for those looking for a smarter daily-wear strap that'll keep its looks I'd recommend looking at another.
love this strap 100%**********
I bought this strap for my Speedy Pro and it's absolutely perfect. The leather is soft, supple and a rich deep brown in colour. I've owned it a few weeks now and already the strap is developing a patina, I can't wait till I can really get it worn and battered. The strap is very high quality and IMO low priced.
The service from the guys at WatchGecko is second to none, updated all the way through the purchase with super fast despatch and shipping. The strap was well packed with a branded WatchGecko microfibre cloth included, it's the little touches and superb customer service that will keep me coming back. Thanks WatchGecko.
The band is very comfortable and sufficiently slim.
It is a really comfortable NATO strap. The leather is soft and smooth and in a high quality. I am looking forward to see how it aged with time. The item is same as the website described.
Excellent service and fast delivery!
Bought this as I didn't like the strap on my new Seiko 5 Military and thought it would look better with a good leather NATO one instead. I really wanted the out-of-stock Horween leather one from here as it had brushed fittings that I felt would have suited the watch better, but being an impatient man I bought this one... I'm glad I did however, as the thin leather is supple, pliable and perfectly comfortable when wearing, looks like it'll last a good length of time, plus I've found the shiny hardware doesn't upset me at all (well, not that much anyway). If I have one gripe, it's that the strap is more tan-coloured than in the picture - so much so I was tempted to send it back when I opened the package and saw how much lighter it was - but when attached it still enhances the look of my watch to my eyes, so I'm happy to keep it. That said, I may well be back for the Horween one in time...
Lastly, I have to mention the excellent service from Geckota Ltd.: kept informed about my order from the very start, it arrived very quickly and was well packed by Claire - thank you.
Very comfortable leather nato strap. The leather is very pliable and as such the 20 mm strap can even fit on 18 mm lugs.
This NATO strap is awesome, the fit and finish is perfect giving my vintage Seiko 7002-8040 from 1996 a whole new lease of life.
The delivery time was very quick, only took four days to get to Germany at a very reasonable cost. Well done WatchGecko.
First order got lost. They quickly shipped me a second order for free! The material and quality is second to none. Absolutely love this piece on my Speedy Pro.
The colour was more tan than vintage brown. I was going to return it but after wearing a few times it has darkened and looks like it will age well. The outside is smooth and the inside rough which when folded through the holders gives a contrast of surface which I'm not sold on. The leather is thin and the strap feels flimsy, the holders have too much space when it is threaded through. However the thin leather is supple and the strap is comfy from the get go.
