Nato Straps have become a big hit among watch enthusiasts in recent years and especially appeal to the vintage watch community.

“The strap that collectors call “NATO” is based upon the standard watchstrap issued by the British Ministry of Defense (MOD). Called the “G10″ by members of the British military because of the form used to requisition the strap from inventory, the reason it got its “NATO” name is because the strap has a NSN or NATO Stock Number which identifies this type of strap.”

Mens shoe store Leffot has produced a set of Horween unlined shell cordovan leather versions of the classic strap. They come in a series of colorways and are now available for 225 USD.
