Genuine new old stock vintage RM Falkland era straps, these were part of Royal Marines kit issued with their bergen rucksack as a utility strap for many different uses.

Option 1: Date stamped '80s on underside of buckle, 1980's stamping on strap. 

Option 2: Non-date,  makers name and patent stamped underside of buckle.

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


19-20mm will fit General Service and divers' watches. Quick pull adjustment ensures exact fit and is easy to get on and off. Extra long 350mm length, which will fit over divers' dry suits or combat gear where the standard Nato strap is too short to do this.

The buckle stays threaded for ease of use, just slide it on and off. Just pull, giving resistance against the body, to tighten. One loop keeper fitted to retain excess strap.

Made in the UK when British kit was overconstructed.

Please note, if you would like the Broad Arrow stamp on your strap, please select the add-on option above. Default is without stamp. 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.
