These straps really change the whole look and feel of your watch. It's my new go to band for my collection. I never liked the small leather bands for some of my watches, these new nato straps make me want to wear the watches all the time.
Perfect compliment to my Shinola Harbor Monster. It is like it was made to go with this watch. Nice hardware and substantial feel. Already bought more!
The AlphaShark 20mm brushed stainess NATO bands are great. I needed to replace the brown leather stap that came stock with my Swiss Made black faced Victorinox I.N.O.X. Titanium. Original black green red Bond, espresso brown, olive drab green, and red white blue Paul Revere were the 4 I chose. These straps are comfortable and very durable.
Fits very well!
Issue 1: The Strap is so thick that it wont fit through spring bars of omega Seamaster 300M. Issue 2: Issues with fraying, concerns about durability. Caveat: Customer support/service is excellent and very responsive.
Great strap. I will say quality is definitely not an issue for Blushark. The strap is longer than expected but that's what scissors and a lighter are for and then you can get the perfect fit. Definitely plan on using this company for more of my watch strap needs.
Awesome strap. Fits perfect on my Samurai.
Beautiful Strap. The Paul Revere matched my Seiko “Pepsi” diver perfectly. I love the patriotic color scheme, and wore it on the 4th of July to celebrate!
I purchased several Bands. They are much like my TAG HAUER band but significantly cheaper. Get a couple, you won't be disappointed.
I bought this to match with my Omega Seamaster “electric blue”. The strap is a very rich blue! As brilliant as the SM is, the strap still overpowers it. Because of the nice tight weave and thick material, the strap is very smooth and feels tough and durable. The length is great and the movable keeper is such a great idea! For some reason I love getting all the hardware just right and this makes it easy. I also like how beefy the buckle is, but not oversized. This is definitely worth the money and I will be buying more.
Great strap. I would expect nothing less from Blu Shark. It looks great on my Seiko STO Turtle. It will certainly come in handy for the 4th of July weekend! Thank you!
Yet another winner that looks great with my JDM Seikos. Very happy with my collection of NATO straps from Blushark; convinced I made the right choice.
So I did the five for three deal of the Alpha Shark collection for my Omega watch. I previously did the three for two deal from the original collection. They originally sent the wrong size by mistake, a 20mm instead of the 22mm. But after I emailed them, they sent me the correct size at no extra cost, and I love it. Definitely one of my favorites.
This was the second NATO I bought, but it was the first to come in the mail. I bought a $12 strap elsewhere. My BluShark was the first one on and I immediately loved it. A few days later the cheaper one came and all I can say is WOW. It felt like absolute trash compared to my Paul Revere. The quality is absolutely worth it. And now I have a little bit of America to go along with the Seiko.
Beautiful strap, that is well made.
Great strap! Super soft with great really nice polished hardware. I’m sure it’ll last for a long time.
Pleasant experience with everything including the layout of the web site, the prompt delivery, and quality of the strap. I really enjoy wearing this watch even more than before because of how pleasing to the eye it is, it is much lighter, and a lot more breathable.
Since I am new to this watch collection thing, this was my very first nato strap. So I didn’t have any expectations or experience with natos. But this has set a standard on what I want from future straps.
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!
Great strap! Thanks!
Picked up as the 3rd wild-card option for this watch, but it seems to be a great match. Sorry the lighting/photography is awful, but the blue complements the champagne gold face and the white/red stripes match the colours of the hands. Impressed how well it works in person. The material/weave is nicer than the other straps and it is a touch comfier to wear. Good stuff, really happy with it. Probably my favourite watch/strap combo I have.
Great feel and a good replacement for the original strap
Love the look and colors of this one! Would be cool to see this one done in the premier line so its softer and thinner. Overall looks really great!
It fits perfect and it is good material.Very happy with purchase.
High quality and the Best, love the colors.
Great quality and comfort!
A little to much going on for me but matches well with my Seiko SKX009. This is the only strap from BluShark that I’ve run into that has started to fray a little bit at the dead end of the strap. I took a lighter to it in hopes to seal the problem.
Amazing quality for the price, and great customer service.
Heavy duty hardware, great feeling material. I’m confident having my best watches on blush arm straps. Not to mention they look great!
you can never go wrong with an alpha shark.... it rocks!
The AlphaShark Luxury NATO straps are my overall favorite BluSharks, watchbands, and NATOs. Great color and texture consistency. The band does not pull hairs, holes hold up well, and is long enough to fit my 7.75" wrist without having to tuck in the end of the strap. The band is a little stiff at first, but breaks in pretty quickly after a couple days of wear. The 22mm fits great on my Seiko SKX007J Diver, and both the brushed and polished hardware match well. My one and only suggestion to BluShark would be to stitch the "floating" keeper. That in no way detracts from the quality, but I like how both keepers are stitched on my BluShark Orcas. I actually prefer the AlphaShark Luxury over the AlphaPremier Ultra Luxury. The AP is very comfortable and of superb quality, but the added rigidity (for lack of a better word - it is very comfortable) of the AS is more comfortable with my Seiko Diver and makes the watch seem less top-heavy. The AP would definitely outshine the AS on a lighter, slimmer watch, like a dress watch of some type. (I'll be copying this review to the pictures of the other AlphaSharks I have - same review applies to all of them).
Looks great with PADI turtle.
Purchased this as a second option to the amazing bracelet that comes with the Pelagos and I must say that the quality is top notch! The quality of the strap is the best I’ve ever felt. The buckle and hardware is also top notch! It’s the only colour of James Bond that I really like. I would recommend this one to anyone and will certainly be buying more!
Looks great - and fells very comfortable
