Our Seatbelt Nato's get a fresh drop of colour
The humble Nato strap has evolved quite dramatically over the last five years or so with new styles popping up all of the time. The amount of colour combinations you will find for sale today is mind blowing but it is not only the colours that have evolved. Seatbelt Nato straps are an adaptation of the standard Nato's that most people are familiar with. Normally they are made with a thicker material that it constructed using a different weave pattern and most of the time they will run larger hardware.
We began our Seatbelt Nato collection late last year with a selection of five colours available with either brushed or black hardware in either 20mm or 22mm. The reaction to that initial drop has been so good that we decided to give you another five new colours with the same size and hardware options. Running approximately 1.4mm in thickness and 290mm in length, our Seatbelt Nato straps are better suited to slightly bigger watches.
Our latest colour additions are a little reserved with a splash of colour and one stripe combo that we think is pretty awesome... Dubbed the reverse Bond, it combines the black and grey colours from our first drop to make a rather interesting looking Nato. We fitted it to the Seiko SRPD79K1 and selected the black hardware to match the case of the watch. The result is a very stealthy yet eye catching combo.
With a different weave pattern, square holes and larger hardware, our Seatbelt Nato straps have a little bit more presence when on the wrist. Take nothing away from our Standard Nato straps as there is most certainly a time and place for them but their bigger brother does a slightly better job when it comes to bigger watches.
Grey/Black, Dark Brown, Army Green, Oatmeal and Sky Blue are the five new colours that have been added to the collection. We know we shouldn't have favourites but the reverse Bond (Grey/Black) and Army Green just look so good when fitted to our all Black Seiko. Saying that, the Oatmeal and Sky Blue colours look just as good on the green dial Seiko, which you will no doubt see on our Instagram soon.
Is there a colour you think we should add to the collection? Or maybe you have seen a different style of Nato straps you think we should get in. Let us know in the comments, on our social or via email. You can always pick up the phone too, we don't mind talking watch straps.
