Crown & Buckle began selling braided nylon straps back in the summer of 2014, to much fan-fare and praise from our customers. After moving production to a reliable factory, we are excited to share this large collection of colorful braided straps in popular sizes.
Braided nylon watch straps originated several decades ago [authentic vintage ones are very cool], and came of age in the era of rubber "tropic" straps, which share a similar vibe. They are commonly referred to as "perlon straps" in the watch world, since the material is a prominently woven pattern of wide nylon strands similar to Perlon® fibers. They look right at home on modern and vintage watches alike, and are a great summer strap due to their light and airy nature.
This strap features a black colorway in 18mm. Each strap is ultrasonically welded to secure the material and prevent fraying. They are finished off with a polished vintage-style tang buckle made from period-correct nickel plated brass. There is one fixed keeper next to the buckle, and one floating keeper. 10.5"/265mm overall length fits most wrist sizes.
