Expect The Unexpected: The HIRSCH ‚Rebel‘

This week I would like to present to you a new robust Nato style watch strap, made of saddle leather uppers and with a softglove leather underside. If you are familiar with one- piece watch straps, you might know that they come either without lug attachments or with fixed lug attachments. The watch strap model ‚Rebel‘ from the brand HIRSCH comes with something new: 2 freely adjustable lug attachments that can be positioned along the strap to fit the size of your watch. I remember a customer who was enquiring about a one-piece watch strap with fixed lug attachments. Unfortunately the combination of his watch and the requested watch strap did not work- the watch had a diameter of about 50mm and the distance between the lug attachments of the watch strap was adjustable from 35mm to 45mm and therefore simply too short for the customer’s watch. The ‚Rebel‘ is suitable for watches with standard lug ends and can be freely adjusted, so you can attach a very small watch or a very large watch to the watch strap. Our newcomer is available in the lug widths of 20mm, 22mm and 24mm and can be ordered in different colours and materials such as black coloured grained saddle leather, brown coloured grained saddle leather and green coloured textile/synthetic. The leather versions are remborded, stitched in the individual strap colour and have a solid buckle that is made of stainless steel. Let’s have a look at them; don’t forget to click on the pictures to be taken to the products directly.

More Specialities – NATO Style with wide buckle and antique look

Over the last year or so we’ve been adding more and more NATO style watch straps to our range of watch straps. So you might be asking, OK, another post about a NATO watch strap, what’s different about this one? I’m glad you asked! This watch strap is one of the first on offer with a large buckle, or wide buckle, meaning the buckle pin is wider and the buckle is somewhat more robust. Leather NATO style straps are also somewhat rarer than their textile or synthetic counterparts. This NATO style watch strap is available in the colour antique black, a somewhat unusual colour, but one which adds character to a watch, giving your watch a look which is more family heirloom than just bought on the high street (or your favourite online shop).
The watch strap is called Mendavia from the brand Meyhofer and is available now in lug widths 18mm, 20mm, 22mm and 24mm.

Even more NATO Watch Straps from the brand Meyhofer

So we’ve been posting about NATO watch straps for a while now, and for good reason; new, exciting products not normally available from many suppliers!

Today i’m going to tell you about a couple of new NATO watch straps from the brand Meyhofer, who have been responsible for many of the new NATO straps of late. The two newest ones are made of leather types which are very popular in the standard two piece strap market, namely alligator grain and carbon style. These leathers are however rare in the textile dominated NATO market, which makes these new watch straps, called Hockenheim and Maracay, worth writing home about.

The Hockenheim strap from the brand Meyhofer, seen below, is available in black at present in the regular lug widths 18mm, 20mm, 22mm and 24mm. The NATO style watch strap, without stitching is fitted with stainless steel loops and buckle, which, as with nearly all NATO watch straps, is synonymous with the lug width, as the strap is not tapered. The tip, also expected on a NATO style watch strap is rounded, as opposed to the more standardised pointed tip on many two piece models. The main selling point of this watch strap is the carbon style leather, which works really well with the many racing style watches on sale these days. The name, Hockenheim, most known for hosting the German Grand Prix for Formula 1 gives the strap a memorable name.

The second strap I mentioned earlier was a NATO style watch strap with alligator grained leather.  The Maracay from the brand Meyhofer is currently available in black, light brown and dark brown in the regular lug widths 18mm, 20mm, 22mm and 24mm.

Created in the same style as the Hockenheim, the only difference is the leather type; the stainless steel loops and buckle are the same as is the non-tapered design.

Leather NATO Watch Straps by Fluco

There are NATO watch straps and NATO watch straps. The majority are very similar to one another, made of textile and varying very little, with the colour being the biggest differentiation factor.  If I told you you could have a leather NATO watch strap, you wouldn’t be too surprised.  If I told you you could have a leather NATO watch strap with stitching, I’d begin to get your interest.  A coloured leather NATO watch strap, with white or red or light contrast stitching? Check out the pictures below and go and buy one of these beautiful watch straps in our shop.  Now that’s something your friend hasn’t got. Oh, and more are coming soon….

NEW Nato-Style Watch Straps!

Let’s face it, NATO watch straps are not just in fashion now, they are an important part of the watch strap range and they’re not going anywhere. Predominantly made of textile material, NATO watch straps are often very simple; a one-piece strap with a basic buckle. Consumers expect choice in this day and age and simply offering black and brown is no longer acceptable, interesting or appealing. That’s why we set aboout evolving our NATO watch strap section, to offer a wider range of products in different colours, patterns, lengths, lug widths, and with different coloured buckles, in both matt and polished. We’ve really tried to make the range attractive for everyone. We’re always looking for ways in which we can make our range of watch straps even better, and we now hope you like the range available in the NATO watch strap section of our website. There will be more coming as well, so sit tight if you can’t find one that’s to your liking (which if i’m honest I very much doubt, there really is a lot of choice).
NATO watch straps are easy to fit to most watches with a straight attachment, either with spring bars or with fixed bars. They don’t break the bank either, tend to be fairly soft and comfortable against your skin, and bend around the contours of your wrist nicely. They are predominantly waterproof and have traditionally been a popular choice for diver’s watches. However with the colours and patterns now available, they’re becoming more and more popular for everyday watches, and smart dress watches alike. A couple of our new NATO watch straps can be seen here:
