Fantastic strap, great quality, soft on the wrist.
Well worth the price paid .
To be candid, I accidentally left this review for the Royal Marines Falklands Era Strap instead of the RM Falklands Era Strap. What’s the difference? The RM Falklands Era Strap has a dated buckle (‘81/‘82/‘83) while the Royal Marines Falklands Era Strap does not.
I purchased this strap to try out on my CWC RN Reissue Silver. Although it takes some getting used to, this strap allows the watch to maintain a lower profile due to its single pass design. The slide buckle allows for very precise adjustment, making the strap very comfortable. I have experienced zero slippage with this buckle!
The only year option available for this strap was 1982, but, hey, isn’t 1982 the year that the Falklands War occurred? How apropos is that, and what a great way to honor those 255 souls who made the ultimate sacrifice for those islands and their fellow citizens.
This strap also forced me to get a CWC Black Auto Mk2 so I could match the blackened hardware on this strap with the PVD case! A perfect pairing, although I suppose a G10 would be period correct,
My strap came with no writing on it, was disappointed as all pics show writing. I opted for the arrow but the watch covers it.
Thank you for your kind feedback, we can replace the strap for you if you want and we can position the broad arrow in the place of your choice, but the strap will not have any numbers on it as they are no longer available. We have emailed you to follow up on this.
CWC’s NATO straps are great, but I have yet to find a more comfortable strap than the Falklands Strap. It’s infinitely adjustable so there’s never any doubt about fit. And the material is extremely soft and supple and seems a little thinner than the standard NATO nylon. But the best part is the buckle placement on the inside of the wrist. It never occurred to me how this simple change would alter the wearing experience. It prevents the watch from sliding around and leaves you with nothing but strap on the underside and backside of your wrist, which is much more conformable. Get this strap. You will not regret it.
