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. Balance is key with leather NATO straps. Too thin, and they risk being flimsy; too thick, and they won't fit the lugs or tuck into the keepers. We've found a great balance.
For this rouille (rusty brown) strap, 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. This strap is 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. At 1.3mm thick, this strap is slightly thicker than a Premium NATO. Upon request, we can provide your strap as a slimmer "single layer" NATO, without the second layer underneath the watch.
With this rouille bridle leather, please allow for variance in color and shade versus the photos.
