Good quality strap. Looks and fits well.
Very disappointed. Too thick and already damaged after I have used it 4-5 times. It's difficult to put it on my Omega Diver now and I think I won't keep it a long time. Not recommended for me.
Amazing quality and a beautiful strap!
Most comfortable AlphaShark nylon strap I have ever worn. With a smooth "seat belt" weave and premium stainless steel hardware. Great quality strap
Nice quality strap and good pricing.
Loving this strap on my 1950’s Clinton auto! Looks and fits great!
Excellent quality! Just a perfect fit on my 8” wrist.
It is a belt that feels good. I want to buy it again.
Very very good here at Brasil !!!
Strap was a little stiff at first, but has become more pliable. Great quality, can’t go wrong with this company.
Very nice for the watch I use it on and it handles in the weather so far
Looks good. Feels great. Strap should be longer.
A very nice looking strap also nice and thick but disappointed in the material around the Adjustment holes. It seems to be fraying and coming loose .
Absolutely love this strap! Great value and amazingly comfortable! Shipping was super fast! I will definitely purchase from BluShark again!
The product shipped quickly, looks great on the wrist, was easy to install and the hardware is of high quality. However, I have some concerns over product longevity and durability. I’ve only worn it a handful of times and I have already observed fraying on the edges and some delamination around a few of the rectangular holes where it interacts with the buckle. When running my finger across those sections, it feels like it will peal up and is slightly rough to the touch. I wonder if round holes would be more durable and last longer.
Great product, well package, high quality! love the care you guys put on this, definitely going to add more to my collection.
Simply the Best!
A quality product that I highly recommend...
I love the color, comfortable fit and finish of the hardware. I would highly recommend these bands if you're looking for something comfortable and durable.
Very happy....good quality
I love BluShark straps because of Excellent Quality all around and they are very Comfortable. Customer service is Great too. Thank you!
Working as a Yacht Captain it is imperative to have a dependable watch on your wrist for on time departures. on time arrivals and measuring time distance point to point to establish current and how it affects the dynamics of your trip. The problem and failure point is the band, if they're steel bands you're reliant upon one pin holding the watch in place with limited immediate adjustment. Synthetic or rubber bands tend to slide and have high notch sensitivity so a minor crack will go catastrophic within a fraction of a second, for the last couple of years I've been a fan of the NATO type watch straps, they vary in price and vary in quality. The best ones I've found are the Blu Sharks extremely high quality absolutely superb hardware well-crafted, you know your watch is solid. I have gotten 1 for all my watches. They look great, they wash well and withstand the rigors of being outdoors all the time, I'm very happy with them as they are the support on the security for an expensive instrument my watch.

Highly recommended online so I bought this Bond NATO for my Speedmaster. Quality is excellent considering that it's less than 25% of the Omega NATO it's an incredible deal. Will definitely augment my collection.
I didn’t like this strap as much as I thought... has nothing to do with the quality though. I wish I would have gone with a thinner strap as it makes the watch wear a little higher on my wrist and the Casio Duro is already a little large for my wrist. Love the PVD hardware though!
I am very happy with my new watchband. It looks great & is well made. The band was shipped & arrived very quickly, even during the pandemic. I also ordered the tool to install the band myself & it worked great. Thanks.
Just got the Nato Black-Green Stripe strap in brushed square hardware for (a)n Seiko Sports 5 automatic. It feels amazing, sturdy and well made. Five Stars all the way.
Awesome looking strap. Delivered to Uk surprisingly quick considering what is going on in the world. Would definitely purchase more straps for my other watches.
The Alphashark is a step above your standard Nato strap. The strap has a luxurious feel and is comfortable right out of the package. The strap material has a high sheen that looks great with my watch. This is my second Alphashark strap (different color for different watch) so you know I'm a satisfied customer.
I have been wearing the Original BluShark and loving it. This AlphaShark is better in every way. Softer, more pliable material, sturdier hardware with better brushing. What’s not to love. Thanks.
New look on my old IWC, best quality in the market.
I’ve only ever had metal or leather bands in the past, so this was a great surprise as to how much I like this strap. The latch on the original Citizen band broke, and I didn’t want to pay $150 for a Citizen replacement. I went cheap at the mall and it weighed a ton, so I stopped wearing this watch which I really like. I’m new into watch collecting, this was my first and only watch worth mentioning, but after adding a few new watches I missed this one. So after some research I found BluShark and pulled the trigger. Best move I ever made, super comfortable and stylish. And the best thing is I can now keep my watch on at work. I was getting wear marks on my laptop from the metal latches on my other watches so they were taken off and on multiple times a day. I don’t have to worry about that now with this watch. I’ve already purchased a second strap for a different watch and will likely buy more.
First off, I love the color and feel of this watch on my wrist. However, I’m concerned about the overall quality, after wearing this strap for not even two weeks, there is significant fraying around the holes.
Absolutely love the strap! Wore it for the first time today and didn’t feel like I needed to remove it to hack away at my computer. I originally had a local mall shop replace the original metal band on my Citizen because I didn’t want to pay $150 for a replacement. I didn’t notice at the time of purchase, but the new band was so heavy and uncomfortable so I stopped wearing the watch. Finding Blueshark was amazing, this strap looks amazing and is super comfortable! I didn’t realize until the end of the day I never took it off because it was bearing up my Mac. I’ll be ordering additional straps for my other watches, it’s an amazing product!
Fit of the strap is a bit off, with the buckle settling on an awkward part of my wrist. I guess that can be expected in a universal fit. The strap length is also in the middle of being too short, where i can't run the extra legth back through the keeper, and too long that I can't just leave it... I guess my 7.25" wrist is just not idea for the legth of this strap, with the placement of the keepers.
Best nato straps if ever seen. Super high quality on both strap and hardware. Very nice signed buckle. Rectangular cut seared holes that won’t fray for a long time if ever. Love that the second keeper can slide a little for exact adjustment to hold the tail.
I bought two straps I love them both. Very comfortable and I can tell quality is much better than all the other straps I’ve bought. The strap tones my Breitling down a bit which I love. Blu Shark I give 5 stars
The strap is very well made. The quality is awesome. It's thick but very smooth and isn't stiff. It looks great and feels great
So far so good
I put this band on my Bulova Lunar Pilot to give it a great new look; very satisfied with what I got from Blushark
This is my first NATO strap. They are very comfortable and easy to swap out.
Excellent, the quality is better than expected
This strap is awesome. I will be buying more!
Bond strap on my Khaki King. Superb!
The clasp hardware is still a bit tight, but the comfort, fit, and finish of this band is outstanding. I think it looks great on wrist and watch.
Nice. Comfortable. Worth the money.
the strap is nice i have 8 straps now and also got a couple of people in the office to buy them too! I made the mistake of buying the polished buckle when all of my other straps are brushed but apart from that I am really happy with it
pleasant experience, prompt customer service and fast delivery!
pleasant experience, prompt customer service and fast delivery!
Very well constructed strap and buckle.
Magnificent strap, that's very comfortable on the wrist, and looks great on my Pro Diver Limited Edition.
Love the strap! The quality is great! Reasonable pricing.
That is a beautiful Bond Nato Strap for my Japanese Domestic Satellite Wave Citizen F900. It was a really nice update for my watch. I am really happy! PS. I only had some issues using credit cards from Nordic Banks as any payment attempts from them to Blushark were declined - luckily the transaction went smooth through PayPal.
It looks nice and I loved it at first but now it’s starting to fray like crazy not even a month later. Not at all what I expected and I bought 3....
Zong Han H.
I think the nato srarp is JUST fit in the style.
Wish it was a tad bigger for my chubby wrist but by far the best straps out there.
The look of the newer Bond strap as seen in the Movie Spectre works perfect with my Marathon GSAR. Love the seatbelt type material that's a little thicker and smooth. Highest quality brushed stainless buckle and links to finish it off. Highly recommend if you're looking for a NATO strap.
It looks great especially with the black buckle and keepers!
New to NATO straps but am a big fan of this one. Looks amazing on my Seiko Black Monster, is comfortable but strong and of superior quality. Will definitely get some more straps from BluShark.
Beautiful colors and excellent quality!
Superb quality, particularly the hardware. A perfect strap for my Marathon TSAR medium, the brushed finish matches perfectly.
Second NATO purchased from blushark. These straps are tried and true. Love em.
Excellent strap. Perfect thickness.
Very high quality strap. The nylon is the best I’ve seen and the hardware looks very tough. I’ve never had a two piece strap before and I’m not wild about it - I know now that I prefer Zulu-style one-piece straps. Doesn’t take anything away from BluShark though!
I love this strap!
Great quality,as always, tuff and reliable.
Although smooth like a vehicle seat belt, it frayed in the square holes that the buckle inserts into, frayed immediately upon the first usage-snags on my suits and shirts. Also frayed at the end when attempting to fold it over to insert into the keeper. It's like having your fingernail snag on a shirt or other article of clothing. Annoying to say the least-plus at a $30+ price tag. I've owned Crown and Caliber Heavy Duty straps for years-and although not as refined as this Blu Shark, they are much more resilient. I've used the same C&C Bond band for two years and it is standing-up better than the Blu Shark at twice the price and with 5% as much actual usage. Bought the Blu Shark to put on a newly acquired timepiece- Leaning toward going back to my Crown and Caliber band- Too bad-looks sharp with the watch!
Worth the $$$, do it. Excellent quality!
My SKX007 looks and feels great on the AlphaShark Bond strap.
Too nice with my Seiko SKX007! I have tried several straps, but this one is perfect!
I have been using this strap on my modded SKX007 (Bond strap on a 007 - how cool is that?) and it looks great. It is super comfortable and the quality is really good.
Wow, phenomenal! Terrific quality NATO, and the look I wanted, to dress up my Seiko SBDC061, which is my new favorite watch, made even more enjoyable to wear, with this excellent NATO. Professional, comfortable, and a classic look, giving a break from the bracelet. Excellent hardware, perfect length. I've found my new place to buy straps!
Excellent quality & compliments my watch perfectly!!
Nice look with my MM200.
I have bought NATO Straps from other retailers. But this is by far the best quality. It's soft yet strong. The weave is dense. BluShark really lives up to its name and quality
I was shocked because watch straps are very high quality. I will definitely buy in the future BluShark's straps.
Great quality, good selection, good price, good values all around.
I sincerely love your straps! The wormanship is amazing. They gave my watches a complete new look. Excellent quality. I will be placing another order soon.
The strap is quality made and the weave is pretty tight. Also the buckle and keepers are very sturdy. I like the look of the strap quite a bit but it is definitely too thick. It digs into my wrist when I wear it unless it is incredibly loose making the watch swing around. I got the regular strap as well and I like that one much better. Will have to get the bond nato either as the normal version or try the thin premium one. Nonetheless still pretty good if you are specifically look for a very thick strap.
Why are they so long. I have average size wrist. Don’t like to have to fold over excess. Don’t want to cut as the cut will be fairly close to last hole.
Looks great feels great for everyday use. Easy to install, light weigh, very comfortable. Purchase two one the everyday watch and the other for my dress watch. Love them bands.
Love the Bond strap. Thank you
Great nato strap. Nice, silky feel with a tough weave. Perfect for comfort and durability. My only gripe is that I can't get the "18mm" AlphaShark or Premiere in a larger variety of color combos. The 18mm selection is too limited.
Nice nato strap worth the buy 2 get one free deal.
Like it... would buy again
Love the silk like texture and robustness of the build and hardware. Must more luxurious than I expected in a NATO strap. Bring out more unique colors and I think these straps will truly become the industry standard.
Very nice quality band.
Just buy it. Cant go wrong with quality and price
Just returned from my morning jog and was fortunate I was wearing a long sleeve shirt. The pin holding the buckle portion on my brand new AlphaShark-Bond-22mm-/Premium Brushed/Black fell out. After trying repeatedly to reattach it, I am now left with an unusable band. I have ordered several watchbands from you in the past and all have proven to be durable, reliable and exceeded my expectations. This is an unacceptable failure in an otherwise well designed watchband. I"m surprised to discover the buckles of your watchbands are attached using just spring loaded watch pins. This defeats one of the main advantages of the NATO strap design. If one watch pin were to break, the watch will still remain attached to the strap preventing the watch from being lost. The way you attach the buckles creates a weak link in the strap and is a poor design. This method may be cheaper and easier, however, a solid bar across the width of the buckle, similar to the way the keepers are attached would be far better and give the wearer greater peace of mind. Unfortunately, I will now be constantly concerned with the strap being secure around my wrist. Not good! You have since agreed to replace the band but are out of stock in the brushed finish. So I am now waiting for it to ship.
Comfortable and durable, great fit and finish the buckle. i will recommend to all!
Excellent strap - far exceeded my expectations!
I have few of the Alpha Shark straps and if pressed I would give them a 4.9 stars because of one small factor... The rectangular holes for the buckle pin fray faster than any strap I have that has round holes... I'm not sure as to the mechanics of why this is so but never the less it happens to every one , plus my Barton Jetson's too... Also if the holes were marginally closer together, maybe one more hole across the same span, they would fit a little better... BUT other than that small gripe the Blushark Alphas are terrific. The material is just right and the hardware and buckle are my absolute favorite! Plus my Sea Shark looks great on a Alpha Shark Bond!!!
Prima eserienza con Blu Shark dopo tanti cinturini NATO di vari livelli di qualità. Mi dispiace non averli conosciuti prima: avrei risparmiato un pò di soldi. Ho acquistato 3 AlphaShark con l'offerta prendi 3 e paghi 2 + 15% di sconto + trasporto gratis: impossibile comprare 3 cinturini della stessa qualità alla stessa cifra. La consistenza è perfetta: sufficientemente rigidi da sopportare orologi di una certa dimensione e allo stesso tempo morbidi e flessibili per il massimo comfort. Unico suggerimento per Joe: prova un grigio meno brillante sul Bond classico. Certamente acquisterò ancora da Blu Shark,
Very high quality Nato strap wirh great buckles
Awesome strap. I’ve had a few NATO straps and this is the best one by far! Very nice strap material, stitching is neat and comfortable and hardware is sturdy.
fantastic and very versatile...
