Dang does this look good! Can't give it 5 stars because, as others have mentioned, I quickly started seeing stress "pulls" on the hole(s) where the buckle tang are inserted through.
The band has a premium feel. It is really soft feeling. My only issue with the band is the Blue is not as dark as it appears in the photo. I am building a Seattle Seahawks themed watch for a customer and the blue in the band will not work with this build.
Quality isn't very good. Already splitting at the end and I've only worn it 4 times
Bought this for the color scheme alone, it's very comfortable and soft to wear. However, as far as durability goes this is a thin strap that can't take a lot of excessive load. So definitely position your watch on the strap exactly where you need it. Otherwise the holes will begin to give out and fray. Jango Fett approved.
The end of the strap pretty much immediately starting splitting. The hole where I attach the buckle tongue started to tear on the third wearing. It's soft but it just started cracking and tearing almost immediately. The other straps I ordered have been great. This is the only disappointing one.
Material between the holes has done this on all three straps I’ve ordered. It’s a shame as they’re otherwise great straps. This is obviously a known issue and it baffles me why it hasn’t been addressed.
Super silky soft. So comfy to wear!
The strap is really supple and comfortable, and I forget I’m wearing my watch, but at the risk of the strap separating between the adjustment holes after wearing it once. I don’t wear my watches tightly on my wrist. I hope this is covered under warranty replacement.
Its a fine strap. Long enough and very comfortable. The blue is close enough to the bezel and the grey even closer to the dial. So very well made.
Working as a Yacht Captain having a good looking secure watch strap is crucial
Wow what a Strap! Extremely comfy and great Look!
Got the band first then found a watch to go with it. Very comfortable and I love the color combo. Goes great with the watch too.
The strap looks very nice! However, the cut outs for the buckle are not sturdy. On 1st use ive noticed the fabric around the cut out was ripping around where the little hook goes in. Put it on a wider hole, and that one started ripping too. Overall it looks nice but those cut outs should be more sturdy.
As every other strap from the AlphaPremier line has been, this one is super comfortable on-wrist and looks absolutely fabulous. Not a first or a last-time purchaser.
Great quality, a bit shiny
Great NATO, comfortable looks great
The alpha premier line is hands down the nicest line of natos i have owned. When compared to various other companies.
I was looking forward to trying this combo ever since I’ve spotted this AlphaPremier seat belt NATO strap on BluShark's website. Minor glitch about shipping, but BluShark took good care of me and resolved it quickly and generously. Thank you, guys and gals!
This isn't my first Alpha Premier strap and it won't be my last. They feel soft as butter on-wrist and the coloring is incredibly vibrant and won't dull down your prettiest dials. This is my Seiko SRPD21 Save The Ocean Great White Shark edition turtle and this silver w/ blue accent strap goes fabulously with it. A great-looking watch won't see the wrist time if it's on a strap you're not in love with so get an Alpha Premier strap and love your favorite watch all over again.
I purchased this for my Seiko 5 SNK371 Speed Racer. I wasn’t sure about the silver color. Might be too much in a “Jetsons” sort of way. But...when I received it and put it on the Speed Racer with the blue dial and polished silver case, it was amazing! The strap is the softest nato I ever purchased from BlueShark. So soft! It’s so comfortable! The silver with the blue edging was a perfect match with the Seiko Speed racer. I’ll be honest. I was doubtful. But it is my favorite Nato/Watch match up. It’s more “delicate” than other Natos from BlueShark. But being soft and comfortable means it’s not going to be as rugged as the army green Nato. Don’t expect it to be. It’s a comfortable and stylish. That’s what it is. Match it up with a similar watch. Take the chance.
Hole ripping the first time I wore it.
Too thin and flimsy. Wore it once and the buckle hole is starting to tear.
Got one of these for my seiko skx007 and the hole I use tore after 10 days of use.
The strap has an amazing shine and it's super thick plus the color combo was a perfect fit.
Lovely strap, comfortable material, you barely feel it on the wrist.
Super comfy, looks amazing, my new favorite strap!
I love everything about Blushark NATOs. The gradient coloring on this strap is phenomenal, and the sliding keeper is always wonderful.
My wife and I went to the Omega store in Tysons Galleria in Washington DC, and I tried their nato straps. Silky smooth nylon that paired with beautiful hardware, what a strap to behold, yet the $170.00 price tag was a major turn off. So having purchased a few blushark natos, I thought I would give the Alphapremiere line a shot. I am blown away by the quality. Hands down this is waaaaayy better than the omega straps, especially for the difference in price. I will only wear blushark brand natos from now on!
Very nice, comfortable, probably too nice for my rugged lifestyle.
