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 the vintage pieces and also in the modern times as a reliable and also fashionable alternative to both leather and/or stainless bracelets.
Our RAF N7 NATO straps, perhaps better if we call it a 'single pass through' nylon straps, are featured in a semi-squared tip and a thick nylon loop as a keeper. The RAF R7 strap is made of special nylon in 3D weaving techniques. A mass hexagonal pattern of texture, as well as a honeycomb pattern that pairs perfectly with all military or dive watches.
The pins and buckle on the RAF N7 strap are made of 316Lstainless steel ladder lock slider design, same as our Perlon strap. The new palette of colors options include your standard military green, grey, navy blue, and black, but we also added the dual color Bond-style strips as well.
