Royal Marines Falklands Era Strap

Item code: 73655

Genuine new old stock vintage RM Falkland issue buckle on new MoD webbing strap

These were part of Royal Marines kit in green, issued with their bergen rucksack as a utility strap for many different uses.

Being 19/20mm with a quick adjust very secure buckle, they make the perfect military watch strap. They are micro adjustable and the buckle will not slip, They are so tough and durable they are unlikely to wear out and the larger Aerolex buckles were used on heavy lifting equipment harnesses.


How to fit and use this strap

20mm will fit General Service and divers' watches. Quick pull adjustment ensures exact fit and is easy to get on and off.

The buckle stays threaded for ease of use, just slide it on and off. Press the watch against thigh or body to give resistance and pull the strap to tighten. Keepers fitted to retain excess strap.

Please note, if you would like the Broad Arrow stamp on your strap, please select the add-on option above. Default is without stamp. We DO NOT STAMP ON BLACK OR CAMMO STRAPS currently. For stamping on multiple straps, please change the stamp quantity in your basket and leave a message indicating which strap you want stamped.

They don’t tell you you have to pay duties.

Love the watches. But it’s a hassle to pay extra when it’s already expensive for the class of watch. I’ll head to eBay next time.

Thank you brings back memories good and bad

I need my sbs divers watch repaired do I need to send it back to the UK?

I love this strap, once you figure out how to wear it in the best possible way there is no going back to other straps. Extremely comfortable infinitely adjustable and very good looking in my opinion. I was playing around with the strap trying different ways to wear it and this is what I finally came to. Note how one of the keepers goes over the buckle!
