WHAT ARE NATO WATCH STRAPS?

NATO watch straps are made from durable nylon and are based on the standard watch strap issued by the British Ministry of Defence. The are called “NATO” straps because they have an official “NSN” (Nato Stock Number) which is used to identify standard material items of supply for all NATO countries.

NATO staps are similar to “Zulu” straps which have rounded (rather than flat) buckles.
