This does NOT look like an MN strap! It is very, very bright green and the yellow stripe down the middle is way too thick. This does not remotely look like a military-style strap. If I didn't pay the money for the watch band, it would make for a good joke.
I call this one the Jim Clark. Always great products.
Love the strap, get compliments on it - a great way to bring some personality into the watch world
It's a nice strap. Pretty stiff.
Nice strap. Sometimes you will be surprised which strap will go with a watch. Best to get a few to try.
Excellent quality! Just a perfect fit on my 8” wrist.
Really like this strap. Very comfortable. Upscale look makes my inexpensive Bliger look like a much more expensive watch.
Top quality construction and material but the band is a little too thick for me.
This nato strap is much better quality than old school nato straps, I like the feel and comfort and sheen, very satisfied.
Looks good on my King Turtle.
Amazing product , i wish i had more money to buy all the products they have
This Marine Nationale strap was my first purchase from BluShark, it definitely won't be my last! I could not be happier! The strap is super comfortable, the hardware is solid, and it went so well with my Seiko Flightmaster, I don't think I'll be going back to the steel bracelet any time soon. I'll be ordering more straps for my other timepieces in the very near future.
Simply wonderful, the perfect high quality NATO strap....
I purchased this strap several months ago, in anticipation for a watch I was getting. I put the strap on the watch a month ago. The strap is already experiencing fraying on the sides and where the buckle is for the strap. It's not like the whole strap is falling apart, it's just starting to look like a tennis ball in some places. For $32, and being from BLUShark's Alpha line, i expected much higher quality and no fraying until after heavy use, which it has not experienced. Overall, a disappointment.
I wasn't sure if I would like this strap? That is, until it arrived and I put it on my watch. Wow! This strap is really beautiful and looks stunning on my watch. I absolutely love it! All of my other NATO straps have brushed buckles. This strap has polished hardware and really compliments the polished case on the watch. I currently have a dozen different NATO straps, but I can tell this one will definitely be in the starting line-up from here on out.
High quality strap. I love the yellow and green, it really pops! 5 stars!
Love the Alphashark line of straps. They are super comfortable, but they are still solid on sit on the wrist really well. I had been struggling to find that perfect match for my Blue Angels Citizen. This is it! Love the colors. Brought new life to one of my favorite watches. Can't seem to stop wearing it now.
Excellent NATO band!!!
Just wow! I really like the quality. And it took only week from US to Europe :)
I bough this BluShark NATO on a total whim to accent the emerald dial on the Seiko SNKP27. I mean, look at it! The green with yellow pinstripe gives the whole thing a Lotus F1/British Racing Green vibe. It’s a soft strap and instantly comfortable. The watch sits high, so if I could have had this in a 2-piece version, it would never come off the watch. As it is, the strap allows me to ‘dress down’ the watch for casual wear.
Great strap for summer, will do just fine on the beach.
The last strap I ordered frayed badly after minimal use. I hope this one lasts longer.
Great Customer Service and Well Made Products! Fantastic Quality and Workmanship. Wonderful Colors too.
Quality is good enough but the green is way brighter then on the pictures... dunno I gonna wear it yet or on what. Was expecting a bit more subdued military color.
Pretty thick, but very good quality and, most important, great looking strap
Beautiful strap that compliments my Seiko Alpinist. Excellent quality, and like my other Blu Shark straps, will last for years!
A little stiff but looks so good on the Alpinist I'll get over it. Alpha Premier Vintage Bond on the left and Academy on the right.
These is the first alpha shark straps that I have purchased. I bought 5 different color patterns and these straps are awesome! Very good looking, high quality and tough. Thank you!
Il mio secondo ordine Blu Shark per un totale di 6 cinturini Alpha Shark..... e non sarà l'ultimo! Il Marine Nationale, così diverso dal solito, è una soluzione perfetta per una bella giornata di sole. Bellissimo per il mio Seiko SKX 007, il suo rapporto tra spessore e morbidezza lo rendono perfetto per le dimensioni dell'orologio. Forse un pò meno brillante mi sarebbe piaciuto di più. Grazie Blu Shark!
Beautiful strap, very good build, and excellent price! Frank Madrid
The Alpha Blushark is soft, very comfortable and the quality is TOP notch! The color green with the yellow stripe catches the eye, and yes, you will get lots of compliments. This strap is one of my favorites to wear!
Just opened the box and put the strap on my watch. This watch came with a black leather band which was ok, but this strap really changed the whole look, and come to think of it, feel of the watch. Much more comfortable to wear and much better looking in my opinion. It made something that sits in a drawer, something I want to wear! The XL length fit this larger watch perfectly! Wish there were more choices in this length! Durability remains to be seen, like I said, I just put it on, but I feel confident Blushark will stand behind their products. Very satisfied with my purchase!
Haven't used yet, but same great quality! Love it!
The strap is fantastic and feels soft and comfortable.
These quality bands are comfortable and add a little variety and flare to my collection.
This strap was longer than the other straps i ordered. Hope all straps come in this length in the future.
I like the strap a lot, though I didn't expect it to fray at the adjustment holes. Nothing I can't take care of with some heat, but was hoping it will not happen within a week... The strap looks and feels great - better than all my previous straps. I will buy again!
One issue I have are the buckle holes, they seem to have an issue of fraying where the straps thicker fabric color stripe passes thru the hole. Arguably I brought this on self, passing the strap thru the lugs and spring bar. The thicker stripe fabric pulls against the spring bar and starts to fray. If you remove the bars and place the strap where desired then install the bars, it wouldn’t pull. But, kind of a pain, extra step. So, if the holes on this striped fabric configuration could be sealed somehow to avoid fraying, that would be a suggestion!
Great quality strap, comfy!
Top quality, well made and absolutely a great purchase experience.
I would like to write a positive review of this product, but I have yet to receive it. When I ordered this and received my order confirmation the next day, I noticed that it had polished hardware, while I prefer brushed. I tried to change it, but was told it had already been shipped and that I could send it back for an exchange. I did so and, according to USPS tracking confirmation, Blushark received it over 2 weeks ago and I have heard nothing.
MN NATO on MKII Paradive, great combination for an EDC tool watch. Like the history of the MN style, but prefer it on the BLU SHARK NATO for the reliability and quality!
I love the way the XL strap looks with my SRP775. The sheen and colors are amazing. I don't think it would look as good with a smaller watch because of the thickness of the material. You definitely need to offer more "XL" size straps! I like being able to fold over a good portion of the material. Also, I like that you can adjust one of the keepers, very cool. My only disappointment is that the fabric has already started to fray and I've only been wearing it a few times a week for the last few weeks. For the price, I assumed that the quality in this aspect would be much higher.
Love it. One of the best NATO staps out there.
Alpha sharks are my only Nato straps. Others do not compare. The weave is tight, the feel is silken and the hardware outstanding. My only criticisms are 1. Please expand The color combinations. I have almost all the current stock, except 2. I have been waiting on my British Khaki for some time. This is a great brand.
Very comfortable. Built qualityis astonishing. It had been difficult to find a strap with just right hue for this watch, this is perfect fit. Will buy more for sure.
Verte sur verte. C'est superb!
This is a perfect addition to an SRP775. Comfortable and extremely well-made. However, only buy this strap if you don't mind answering questions from admirers.
Feels super smooth. Seems sturdy, and it should last forever.
The first thing I thought was" now this is what a nato strap should be!!"
Great strap, very nice quality and fits perfectly
Excellent quality and looks great!
I'll definitely buy more. The alphashark natos are worth every bit of the $32.
These are really great straps. Photos I saw online made me slightly doubtful of the quality but these blushark alphas have surpassed my expectations. They're soft, pliable and good looking- no break in required before they become comfortable. A bit shiny but not too shiny, the material is awesome, albeit a bit thick, even thicker than some other seatbelt straps I have. Though not too thick to make them uncomfortable. These straps also shine with their hardware, which is robust and beautifully brushed. The square holes are different, and function as they should (though it seems a slight bit of fraying is present). This is not a huge deal though. Everything about these screams quality, they could pass as OEM straps. How this will hold up to the test of time remains to be seen. These blusharks will be my go-to straps from now on, especially with the cool marine nationale design during this summer on my divers.
love it 5 stars!!
Outstanding nylon quality and solid premium hardware that ive come to expect - true representation of the colours as well
