The band feels good, the hardware looks great. The only complaint (and this is kind of a big one), the "silver" stripes are more olive than they are silver. They look nothing like the photos and ride the line of green and brown. The coloring is a huge disappointment.
Incredible quality for the price. Very comfortable and looks great!
I got this one because, as a law enforcement officer, it reminded me of the Thin Blue Line...and it goes great with this blue-faced Planet Ocean!
The original band I ordered was out of stock and I was reached out to quickly by a customer service rep and not only was given a replacement band of my choosing but also another free one included because of my first choice not being in stock. Very fast shipping and helpful customer service. The band itself is very high quality and I would recommend this company/band to anyone.
I love this variant on the bond colors; it's sophisticated without being too flashy. The Original is the best value in their model lineup in my opinion. Durable material, quality hardware at a reasonable price. BluShark is also a great company to deal with. They once sent me the wrong color. I was prepared to return it, however when I called to initiate the exchange, they told me to keep it and sent the correct strap to me the next day. That's great customer service. I gave the wrong colored strap to a friend whose watch it matches and now he is hooked on BluShark too.
Looks great on my Tudor black bay blue. The Buckle and hardware and stitching are top quality as far as I can tell this far.
Extremely comfortable and compliments my watch ,don't worry boys I have more watches that need bands but I need to get batteries in them first
Its perfect fit from my wrist i dont need to fold it or cut it
Great NATO Strap, stylish and works well with Marathon Medium watch. Everything I had hoped for.
Great watch strap. Love the material and color as well was how easy it was to install
The nylon is thinner than a regular NATO strap, the buckle is unusually large and the strap is about 1.5 inches to shoot to wear as a traditional NATO strap.
A quality strap that perfectly matched my watch.
I've had this strap for over a year and it's held up great on my beater. I've also taken it in the ocean, on vacation, and it dries up pretty quick. Good stuff.
Another awesome combination thanks to BluShark! As always the quality is top notch.
The best nato strap I’ve purchased. Fits perfect and looks amazing on my Omega Seamaster. Now looking for a James Bond NATO strap from Dr.No
Great watch strap! Matches my watch perfectly, fits nicely and feels comfortable!
An excellent quality strap at a very reasonable price! Great customer service, too.
I could not be anyway happier with my purchase.
Never going back to bands or bracelets ever again. Love the black PVD finish. I wish more of your straps have that choice.
Beautiful strap, that is very comfortable. Looks great on my Philip Admiral Chronograph.
So I have a 2006 Omega Planet Ocean, whose rubber band broke. Getting a new rubber band was way expensive. So I decided to try NATO strap instead. I love them. So happy I got it. I got this style with the black pvd hardware. I do wish the blue center line would pop out more or be more brilliant. Sometime I can't tell if it's blue or black. Also the pvd hardware doesn't feel as solid as their brushed or polished stainless steel. But I'll definitely keep buying from you guys. Never going back to rubber bands or bracelets.
Best strap, fits perfectly on Tag Heuer Aquaracer 43mm
The place for straps! I wasn't thrilled with the stock rubber strap on my new Deep Blue diver, and really like Bond NATO's, but wanted something to compliment the blue dial, and of course BluShark has a blue Bond NATO! So, I pick up all three main colors of the watch, the black, the blue, and the stainless, with this awesome gray/black/blue strap. Awesome quality as always from Deep Blue. Picked up another one as well, in a waffle pattern and will post a pic of that also, so, now two great wear options for this new watch!
I’ve had a few of your nylon bands. There are a lot of great choices.I especially like that you offer a matte metal finish. I have some really fine watches but the one pictured is the most practical for every day use. I shower and swim in it and the bands hold up beautifully. I’m a big fan of your products.
First time NATO strap user. The strap on my Citizen Pro Diver daily beater was looking rather long in tooth and I wanted to give it some new life. These straps give you tons of options to transform the look of an old favorite like mine. The brushed stainless hardware matches perfectly and really makes the watch pop! I will by more in the near future for sure.
BluShark Bond with Blue 22mm strap, with premium brushed stainless hardware, on my Seiko automatic. Love BluShark's NATO style straps - the straps are soft but tough and the hardware is solid. You can see and feel the quality.
I own 4 Blu-shark Nato bands. I love them. They are durable and comfortable. I also think the signature on the clasp adds something that the bargin Nato bands do not have.
This strap is a perfect match for the new Seiko Samurai ‘Save The Oceans’! Love it!
I like Blu Shark natos so much that I've replaced just about every nato I had with Blu Shark. I appreciate the beefier buckle hardware and the tight weave. The welded punch holes are well done. Can't think of anything wrong with them!
I wasn't sure how I would like this on the GMT Master II BLNR. Very happy with the colors, comfort, and quality. This NATO strap complements the watch extremely well.
I used to wear these nylon straps years ago when stationed in the Philippines. These new straps are far superior to the old ones. Comfortable, sharp colors, and well made!
the strap is quite comfortable and easy on the eye. I have an orient blue triton and the strap really complements it. the material is first rate and the buckles are outstanding. I would recommend blu shark to any watch enthusiast.
Brilliant. Gives a hole new look to my old watch. Why buy a new watch when a new strap will make this much difference. Love it.
This is the color that Daniel Craig used in his filmes. I just bought an Omega Sea Master. Thanks Blue Shark.
Great quality and comfortable.
I ordered a strap with brushed stainless finish. Got polished. Complained and was promised a brusywould he sent ASAP. Got another polished. I now have 2 polished and no brushed. Now I’m told there are no brushed in that strap. The website clearly shows brushed in the picture and includes brushed selection in drop down menu. Get your act together!!!!!
Blu Shark's entry level strap line does not disappoint. The quality of the weaving, the thickness of the strap, the pliability, and comfort, the glue, the stitching, the vibrancy of the colors, and the true superiority of the hardware ranks these straps very high above ALL other entry level Nato straps from ALL other competitors. Blu Shark's service, from Joe at Blu Shark (is there really and truly a person named Joe) has been outstanding.
Already getting compliments! High quality.
These are the highest quality straps from the clean edges to the precision metal pieces. Wears like nothing is on your wrist, very comfortable!
The original BluShark strap in 18mm is a comfortable, well-built NATO. The brushed hardware is quality and the stitching and heat sealing is good. After a short break-in it's a flexible band. There is a small amount of stretching after a few weeks of wear. It fits the best of any watch band I've owned. The Grey and Blue Steel bands are excellent and I would recommend them to other people if they need a good NATO. The third band, the Blue/Grey combo Bond, is falling apart. It came with poor stitching, loose fibers, and all of the eyelets have course and torn material extruding from both sides. One of them has torn already. It's scratchy and uncomfortable. It's probably getting put on a beater Casio until they both eventually break. I have no idea how I got two great bands and one terrible one but it makes me hesitate to come back to BluShark when I can't be certain of what I'm getting on the next order.
Good job! nice straps
Super happy with the details of the strap . Colors are crisp and hardware is of top quality (polished or brushed).
Made an old daily watch fun again at an affordable price!
Blu shark has a great selection with only quality to choose from.
I never received the item; a standard bond, which I already have, was sent instead. I returned the incorrect item on December 3; it was received at your facility on December 8. I requested an exchange for the correct one. I am still waiting.
High quality. Great hardware. Really good colors.
The strap was really simple to install. Feels and looks great!!!
Superb strap with a perfect colour combination for my Seiko ‘blumo’. Especially impressed with the quality hardware and buckle which are the best I’ve had. My first Blushark strap, but definitely not my last based on this.
Love this strap and has given my little old Seiko a new lease of life. Getting more wrist time
Great strap. Matches any black/stainless watch perfectly. Understated but beautiful! Love Blu Shark straps!
I just bought premium Blue Bond (brushed) and Navy (polished) BluSharks for my son's new dive watch and they were, as expected, excellent quality. He especially likes the Navy with the polished keepers that match his blue bezel and polished case. Of course I kept the third strap (Canary) for myself. I've found that BluShark's attention to detail is always topnotch and have excellent selections within their model groups. Great products!
I was getting some gear ready for some overtime shifts patrolling the backcountry in the rockies northwest of Banff last week and thought this was a perfect opportunity for me to show off my new #bondblue from #blusharkstraps on my #alpinawatches #seastrong300. Realistically though, I wore a g-shock instead, if Alpina wants to replace mine with a new one next time I'll put this one through two days of mud, dust and general back-country abuse and they will get some pretty sick photos for marketing. #thinblueline #backtheblue
I like it. Bought a few more. I think I prefer the Orca line.
Great strap and easy to fit. No more irritation from the metal band. Great product
Love the color of this blushark! Goes great with my blue Seiko 5 and will be a great strap to wear to work!
I actually wrote an entire post on my blog raving about the quality of these straps. From the fine stitching to the welded holes to the out-of-the-box pliability, these straps will serve you well. Looks great on my Timex Scout Expedition 40.
For the standard strap, this thing is great. I found it to be more durable compared to my Alpha Shark strap after a similar week of wear. The hole used shows no signs of wear or fraying like the Aplha Shark did. Not quite as shiny or soft, but a great look and feel. It just doesn't give you the same feeling as the Aplha Shark. Overall very happy.
It adds a tasteful look to my watch!
What was expected. Changed the look of my old Omega for the better
Super high quality nato.
Very happy with band and entire purchase process. I felt like a valued customer on my very first order.
Great strap and color combination. Looks great on my a Seiko 62MAS PADI Edition.
Great strap-excellent service, packaging and follow up. First class all around. Will definitely buy more. Perhaps add a half inch to the length.
Third strap from Blu Shark and still great! Just this one I got needed to be filed a little bit at the singed ends near the hardware of the strap. Not too big of an issue for me a simple fix. Overall still loving the quality of the straps.
Very happy with the product- my Seamaster looks amazing.
It fit nicely under my 16600 spring bars
Absolutely love this NATO strap. I ordered it for my Orient Ray II blue dial. I'm very happy with the quality. I'll surely be a blushark customer in the future!
High quality materials, especially the hardware. Strap material could be softer, smoother.
A very cool nato strap, makes great your wathc! Love it!
A big yes. Have bought several and will buy more.
Good strap. Thanks.
I have a couple Alphashark Slim straps and was a little hesitant to move to the original line, but have been pleasantly surprised by it. No, it's not quite as soft, but the quality is excellent, and honestly may hold up to wear a little better. I'm ordering some more!
Received 2 of the 3 straps I ordered and so far I couldn’t be happier. Really looking forward to trying the strap with black PVD coating that is (hopefully) now on the way. Quality, fit and finish are excellent.
Easy to fit and comfortable to wear
This is all I expected a nato strap to be and more, it's comfortable, lightweight and feels durable as if it will last me years. Without a doubt not my last one!
I bought several straps, standard and Orca, for my Seiko PADI. I prefer the texture and weight of the Orca strap, but this standard Bond in the blue color matches well with the blue of the PADI.
This strap is great. Great quality yet still flexible enough to remain comfortable.
As with my other review. The straps I received are of unbeatable quality. Unfortunately UK buyers are punished by Royal Mail and are charged around a third more to get it in the country. Which is a shame because I would have ordered many more.
I first read about BluShark in my search for a good-value NATO strap for my favorite diver. Fortune magazine posted a great article on NATOs as a whole, but then mentioned BluShark as the brand where your money goes the furthest in terms of quality - that's what I feel I got in return, a really great value product. I've gotten various compliments on the new look, and the quality is to match. I'll definitely be back for more!
This was my first batch of blu shark NATOs and I'm really impressed. These are a step above all other straps of this kind I've used. Hardware is great and well made and all holes and ends are sealed. Just a great look, quality, tough strap. Will be buying more and they have breathed some new life into some pieces.
Great strap! Happy to youse it)
I own a lot of NATO straps and this is by far my new favorite. The blue really pops on the Tudor
Love the color combo with my Bulova Moon. Strap is excellent, best NATO I've owned. It's my 5th one! Can't wait to get the grey one!
Very nice band for the money. Very impressed with the Hardware especially. Love that they engraved the buckle. Classy touch, in my opinion.
Fits great and comfortable high quality strap. Premium hardware adds a little somthing.
First Nato band I got and I was hooked. Purchase 5 more after this one and looking to buy more. Even made this inexpensive watch look good.
Having recently gotten in to NATO straps, and wanting something that was high quality and I read so much about BluShark so I had to get one. I decided on the Blue Bond for my blue Mako and it is fantastic!!! What I love about the BluShark is the quality of the strap and the hardware, being new to these straps I didn't want typical NATO hardware, to me it looked cheap from all the pics I saw online. The BluShark Premium hardware is excellent and looks very refined and expensive. The strap is very high quality and I love the uniqueness of the rectangular holes, very cool! Now I know they even make a better the strap (the Alpha), but for me I thought it would be to thick for my wrist, so the original was the BluShark for me. So now I have my BLUE MAKO on my BluShark BLUE Bond!!!! How cool is that! Let me also say, Joe at BluShark was a pleasure to deal with, real asset to the watch loving community!! Thanks Joe!
This is the best NATO strap I've ever owned. Will DEFINITELY order again from BluShark!
Fantastic NATO strap. Great product, buy from this site. I ordered on another site, they sent me a fake. Joe is incredible ! Very quick to answer questions. Quality of product is far better Than I expected. Will buy many more.
Very well-made strap with high-quality hardware. Looks quite nice too. Great product.
