Went with the black and tan Alphashark Luxury strap. Really compliments the Hamilton field watch. Fantastic quality nylon and hardware. Nice smooth finish. Very comfy to wear
Complements my black/gold samurai perfectly
My go-to strap! Solid design, solid hardware, feels good on the wrist. It’s thicker than other NATOs I’ve worn, which adds a bit of height to the watch but not enough to bother me. Overall a great strap and worth the price!
Super comfortable. Looks great.
I’m very happy with the way it feels in my hand
Fits good wears well
Having a 7.75 inch wrist requires that the short piece that saddles the watch case be at least a half to an inch longer, other wise the fit is poor. The only way I can realistically wear the strap is to cut the short piece off. Ugh. I have other quality NATO's that allow the needed space for the bigger wrist and watch case.
This strap is like it was made for the watch! Thicker than the Original series, gives the watch another feel/vibe. Buckle and hardware quality is excellent. Extremely comfortable on the wrist and not bulky.
Great match for my black and rose gold accented Seiko Arnie reissue. I had trouble with the stock rubber strap giving me a rash, so I thought I should get a NATO for it. My wrist measures 7.25 inches and I have just barely enough extra material to fold back down through the 2nd keeper. The fact that the 2nd keeper can move is great! If you have a larger wrist than 7.25" you might need to find a longer strap. Black PVD hardware matches perfectly!
The strap is a little bit too thick. Which makes it a little complicated to fold it back on itself. I am very satisfied with my purchase and I will probably order more. Thank you very much.
Really enjoy product!
I like the feel of this band on my 45 mil Luminox better than the leather band that came with the watch.
Had this on my Seiko Bullet. And I was astonished how good the tan matches the Watches Colours. Great Feel and looks.
Solid, comfortable, reassuring. I will be ordering more cause I just really like the look and feel. But there was one puzzling thing about the Black and Tan strap, compared to the Black and Red strap... one has a floating keeper, which can be handy at times, and one does not. I am not sure why they do not have identical design
Best quality for the price, would buy other colors, love it!
The nato I have been searching for! Soft, comfortable, high quality. It is easily worth every penny. Thanks !
I recently got the Seiko 'ninja turtle' as a gift. It's a great watch, but the rubber oem strap that it came with was a bit lackluster. After searching the internet for the perfect NATO, and dismissing may different styles for one reason or other I settled on the Alpha Shark in black and tan with black PVD hardware. It absolutely perfects the watch's good looks. The seatbelt material is super-comfortable. The hardware is quite beautiful, and the PVD matches the watch perfectly. The only nitpick I have with the strap is that it could be a half inch longer....it would make it easier to tuck in the tail. Otherwise, highly recommended. I also got a blue and a british khaki at the same time and these are just as beautiful.
The strap looks great and is very comfortable to wear. The black & tan goes really well with the colors of my Oris Sixty-Five. There was some fraying on the holes, but customer service suggested that I use a heat source bond the strap material and that seemed to solve the problem for now. They also offered to send another strap. That's just great customer service.
Be warned, these straps are highly addictive. I'm slowly ending up with about every AlphaShark color combination available. Just got this Black and Tan yesterday with the premium black PVD hardware...it's a perfect match on my Ball Night Train DLC! The quality is outstanding, I've had issues with other NATO straps (usually cheap HW) but none with BluShark. It's amazing how a relatively inexpensive strap can re-energize my passion for a nice watch I've had for years. Thanks so much Joe!
1 of 3 straps I bought in the discount offer. Definitely the best quality Nato's I've ever purchased.
The color fade is dead perfect for a yellowed vintage sub or sub homage, but should look good on a Steinhart OVM too, although I think those are all 22mm. This is my favorite strap and I have around 20 BluShark straps.
