Like the Cyclist Glow-in-the-Dark

The origin of NATO straps goes back to the early seventies when it was first worn by the British military.  One of the main purposes NATO straps were designed was to prevent the failure of a single spring bar, the watch will still be secured by the remaining spring bar.  Since then, NATO straps became more and more popular among watch enthusiasts for vintage pieces and also in modern times as a reliable and also fashionable alternative to both leather and/or stainless bracelets.

One of our most popular NATO straps to this date is from the MiLTAT G10 military watch straps Glow-in-the-Dark collection.  The NATO strap is made of nylon thread and 3M reflective thread.  3M Reflective Thread Yarn has retro-reflectivity.  It helps the eye perceive objects in low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source. A large amount of reflected light is returned directly to the original light source.  These 3M strips reflect light to make you visible to cars or bikes, high visibility just like glow in the dark. Studies suggest that in the dark, in car headlights a reflective product is more visible than a fluorescent one.  The 3M NATO straps are equipped with 316L stainless steel hardware, and also genuine suede at the strap end to prevent fraying.  Not only can your watch be seen at night with lumibrite, you can now have your NATO strap seen clearly with our MiLTAT G10 military watch straps Glow-in-the-Dark collection.
