Crown & Buckle began selling braided nylon straps back in the summer of 2014, to much fan-fare and praise from our customers. After two major manufacturing revisions, we are excited to share this high quality collection of 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 made from Perlon® fiber. They look right at home on modern and vintage watches alike, and are a great summer strap due to their thin, light, and airy nature.
This strap features a navy blue colorway and a brushed adjustable-length stainless steel buckle, easily one of the nicest on the market. Each strap is ultrasonically welded to secure the material and prevent fraying. The buckle itself can act as a keeper, and there is an extra floating nylon keeper as well. Overall length comes set at 9"/230mm, but the strap can be shortened easily using the included adjustable ladder buckle to perfectly fit any wrist size.
