One of our most common requests has become a reality! CHEVRON™ adjustable straps are now available in 19mm widths! To start out we have four of our most popular colorways available: Night, Stone, Night + Crimson, and Night + Harvest.
Meet Chromexcel Ruby. She is fire engine red, makes a statement, and will easily pull out any red accent in your watch. Chromexcel leather is very soft to the touch and has a slight stretch for comfort. It's made right here in the U.S. by Horween Leather. If you have a watch with any red details on the dial, this leather NATO will be the perfect compliment!
You may have noticed that over the last week or two our stock levels of Chevron straps were depleting rapidly. At this time we are completely sold out again. Thankfully, we have a new shipment expected to arrive in late January. The shipment should also include the much sought after Night + Harvest color, as well as the brand new Stone grey color.
Head over to the Chevron section of our web site and click on any of the colors if you would like to sign up to be notified as soon as they are back in stock. This does not sign you up to a recurring newsletter or anything like that. Just one simple email will be sent once that product is back in stock. You will find the signup link in red text, to the right of the description, underneath the photos.
We appreciate your patience and the outpouring of support we've gotten for this awesome new product line! We expect the next shipment to last us 4-6 weeks of being in stock. However, we do anticipate we will fully sell out again before the following shipment arrives, due to extended factory closures during the Chinese New Year. Fingers crossed that after CNY, we should be smooth sailing for the rest of the year!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Crown & Buckle! As we celebrate with our friends and families, the C&B offices are now closed until Wednesday, December 26th. New orders will be shipped out and emails will be replied to when we re-open on the 26th. In the mean time, we wish you a holiday season filled with warmth, comfort and good cheer!
As a side note, we are running low on Chevron straps again! Our next restock will not be until mid-to-late January, so be sure to get your orders in for Chevron straps. Some models will undoubtedly be selling out within the next week.
Come visit us this weekend at the 4th annual Wind Up Watch Fair! At the Crown & Buckle booth, we will be selling our American Made, Black Label, and Supreme NATO strap collections.

An easy way to add variation within a small watch collection is to play off the details on the dial. Choosing straps with new colors, patterns, or textures will help maximize the personality of your watch. Our Crimson Perlon is fun and comfortable to wear, and it nicely matches the red hands on the Farer Hopewell it's paired with.
Heavy Duty [HD] NATOs are similar, yet very different from our Standard and Premium collections. A lot of the color choices are the same, but there are two key differences versus the rest of our NATOs: the hardware and the nylon.
HDs have heftier, oval-shaped hardware, and are crafted with an extra-heavy nylon weave that ultimately makes the strap thicker, stiffer, and stronger. HDs are great if you like having a pronounced setting for your watch or prefer a bulkier feel. If you typically gravitate towards a heavier or larger watch, try pairing it with one of our 3-ring (single layer) or 5-ring (double layer) HD NATOs!
Survive the oppressive heat with a NATO strap on your watch. The nylon fabric is comfortable, durable, and waterproof. With 13 sizing holes, you can find the perfect fit when your arm swells and sweats. The waterproof nylon is up for any pool or beach activities, and can be washed with soapy water after a sweaty, sun-screen-y day.
Mix it up with some fun color combinations, and you'll be prepared to take it straight from the beach to the evening BBQ this summer.
After years of planning, we have finally produced a consistent supply of leather NATOs. This collection will be available year-round, and we plan on expanding the color options.
For this collection, we chose robust bridle leather (veg tanned cow) that is durable, strong, and virtually stretch-free. What you can expect is a strap that starts a little bit stiff, but will break-in beautifully, and last you a long time. It will darken and patina with age. It will mold to your wrist, and hold its form where you fold it into the keepers. These straps are the real deal, folks.
Available in 5 leather colors and 2 hardware finishes, we're sure you'll find a strap fitting of your favorite timepiece.
