50 years of Official Military Watches to H.M. Forces.


Item code: 20049

(Please note, we are gradually changing to satin silver finish buckles on some colours, however you may still receive gloss finish. They look very similar but if you have a particular requirement, we recommend contacting us first to check which type we have.)

Imagine a time before the Internet, when products stood the test of time and were not subject to mass marketing just to sell you a facsimile. The CWC "Strap Wrist Watch Nylon" (the original MOD title for the NATO strap) is the most durable genuine military-issued strap, which is why thousands are purchased by the MOD every year in NATO grey. (Other colours are the same but not issued.)
The CWC strap will keep its shape and will not fray at the holes like lesser straps. It will perform longer under the most arduous conditions and keep its original look for much longer.

How to fit a NATO strap.

If you would like the military broad arrow and / or the NATO number stamped onto your strap, please click the add-on buttons above (NATO grey, vintage grey or green only). For stamping on multiple straps, please change the stamp quantity in your basket. For any other special instructions, please leave a message with your order.
