Hi Joe, I’ve waited a couple of months before I gave my opinion on my new NATO watch strap (ORDER BS56767) AND now I have decided that this watch strap just is not working for me. I used to buy my NATO watch straps from Smart Turnout but since they’re no longer in business I have been looking elsewhere for new straps. The Smart Turnout straps are much easier to take off especially when it comes to pulling that last loop-end through the last buckle. I think that this strap i bought is just too thick for that to easily happen like when I had my Smart Turnout ones. Might you make a THINNER strap so that it’s much easier to pull that last loop-end through that last buckle? Hopefully you do because it’s just too frustrating taking this strap off every night. Thanks, Brian Brockway
High quality straps
I have had my strap for less than a month and it is fraying at the hole I ise to secure it to my wrist.
Matched with my Citizen Promaster Tough, I am pleased with the fit and comfort.
This strap looks great on my SNKL23J1! My favorite things about the strap are the comfort and the hardware.
The quality feels much different that the straps I ordered 2 years ago
This brand is on point. Not only in quality but in customer service as well. I ordered 2 straps and forgot to add my 3rd for free. I contacted them the next day. Problem solved.
I'm beginning to wonder if BluShark knows their products become addictive? Perhaps they should come with some kind of warning label. I had to admit in therapy that I have a problem acquiring more and more "fashion accessories" as the therapist termed them. Sickness or not, I don't care. I love them.
There is a reason why this bond strap is so popular. It is a hard to beat combination that looks great with many watches including my Citizen Corso.
I've been replacing my old, boring, worn out watch bands with these well-made and stylish Blueshark bands. It's a great way to update an old favorite timepiece.
Looks good, feels good.
I had purchased four straps for my Seiko Sport. This gray and black bond strap is my favorite!

I relly like the strap. Im buying another set of straps for my watches.
Beautiful, though I thought this watch would be perfect with the white and black strap that I have, the Bond strap fit better. This is a Police watch ref:10968J
This is my first purchase of a Nato style strap and based on the full experience from order to delivery and performance,Blu Shark has a new loyal customer! Love this look
Goes really well with this watch.
Love these straps! I ordered both the vintage and regular Bond colors. Very good material quality and finish. I will buy again.
Excellent quality! Recommend
This strap suits the Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium even better than the OEM strap and the strap feels comfortable on the wrist. Turned it into a real Bond style watch now!
Average quality for the price point among other strap companies. Great buckle.
This is my first nato strap, it’s beautiful and comfortable. I love it!
Solid well made strap at an affordable price. Excellent value.
Took weeks and weeks to get to Sweden. Otherwise I’m happy.
Converted my Citizen watch from metal bracelet to this great BOND strap. It really works well with this watch and it is SO comfortable! Also, another benefit - I am wearing this watch much more now than before. As always-thanks BluShark!
Best NATO style strap I have ever worn. Looks amazing on my Hamilton Khaki Auto.
I actually can't hate the strap because it never arrived. I travel, and had it shipped to a city I would be at for a full week. I ordered it 3 to 4 days prior to arriving in that city. As of last Monday, the day I departed that city, it had still not arrived. That was 10 days! Then, instead of sending me the same exact strap directly to me immediately, and letting the other get returned to them, they informed me I'd have to wait until the item was returned, and THEN they would ship another out. Non of this is my fault, and yet it's going to take at least 3 weeks from ordering to receive one small little box? This is the worst customer service I've ever experienced.
I have purchased several of these straps since I have resumed watch collecting over the past few months and they do not disappoint!! Highly recommend!!
Very satisfied best and nicest nato strap
Classic band for a retro looking racer. Match made in watch heaven. Looks great, feels even better. No cheap strap here. You can’t go wrong purchasing this strap.
Absolutely love this strap, the quality is superb.
Perfect Match for the Tudor Pelagos! I am super picky about quality and these are very high end! Will be back for more!
Excellent strap! This watch strap exceeded anything other strap I've had in the past. Colors and lines are clean and hardware is solid. This was a blind but based on reviews and I'm certainly impressed!
great overall experience. very hardworking crew. exceptional quality product.
I love how nicely it was in the package, the package was very nice and professional. I also loved the cloth that cake with it, I wasn’t expecting anything other than the watch band. It’s a very nice product I love wearing it.
Love the color and the look of the strap.
Excellent strap,really good feel and the buckle is classy!
I’ve had other natos before and this nato is far better in quality and craftsmanship extremely happy and I won’t hesitate to buy more in the future great product and great company.
original blushark bond strap on my Modded Orient Ray II. Exceptional quality, straps dont fray like others I’ve tried. Seems it will last a very long time and it just enhances the whole look of the watch. Blushark straps are the best!
The Bond NATO on an SKX is dripping with cool. As perfect a complement to a suit as it is to shorts and t-shirt. Love the look.
From Russia with Love ! A tough watch deserves a tough strap ... Scuba dude sitting pretty on this super comfy , yet durable bond nato . Great product, great service. Thanks BluShark !
High quality nylon, hardware and construction. I'm impressed enough that my next strap will be an AlphaPremier! I'm loving it on my Bulova Lunar Pilot.
Well made strap. Did not expect the thickness so it was a bit difficult to fit on. But because of the thickness, the watch felt sturdy on the wrist. Like the premium feel of the buckles.
Well made strap, love it!
Nice strap, better quality than a lot of other natos out there. Feels very durable!
This was my first NATO strap. I’d been seeing reviews on YouTube so I thought I’d try one out. Been wearing it for a couple months now, and it’s incredibly comfortable and looks great on my old Seiko 7002. I plan on getting more for this one and my other Seikos as well.
Great quality NATO watch strap
I had an old watch repaired and cleaned. It turned out so nice, I thought nice band would be in order. I truly found the right stuff with Blushark. The hardest thing is catching the bands when they are in stock.
This was my first nato style strap. Looks awesome on the skx007
It gives an added dimension to this already handsome watch.
Very cool, much better than a cheap metal bracelet. even ones that come on a couple hundred dollar watches. clasps and hardware are probably better than I would have expected.
I have bought many watch bands for my watches. I can tell you that these BluSharks are in my opinion the best I have ever bought. Highly recommend them. Will be purchasing again soon.
Once again; a great band.
I am delighted with the purchase and I recommend these straps for their great quality and competitive price. Thanks, greetings from Valencia (Spain)
I had read some good reviews of BluShark so I decided to get an Original BluShark black/gray Bond. It is fantastic. I have bought from a few other brands before and this one is the best so far. Construction seems solid, hardware looks nice, and it looks great with my Seiko SKX007.
These straps are perfect. They are high quality and comfortable. They are the perfect frame for the watch!
Great quality, huge selection of colors! A definite addition to your watch!
The Nylon is thicker than I expected , so it doesn’t stretch like cheap bands. Also the hardware is robust and the PVD coating won’t wear off fast. Wore mine for a week and the PVD coating looks brand new The extra price is well worth it, especially if you have an expensive watch
Looks amazing on my Pontos. What a nice strap!
I am now a Blushark fan! Will buy again because of their high attention to detail and the comfort of the strap. You can’t go wrong with a Blushark!!
Bond is must have strap for every diver's fan. Rugged nylon with nice shiny surface. I like this kind of nylon fibres weaving. It is maybe more rough but doesn't tend to fry as easy as seat belt type. The best nato strap I've ever had. This is my second BluShark Original strap that is why I share the same opinion as for my Mocha colour. For sure I will buy another BluShark Original strap in the future.
Hello, this is another strap and the quality is great and the quality is very high. I am very happy with the strap. Thanks Don
It surprises me excellent quality
I was disappointed with the original blushark strap. Personally, I feel like the similarly priced straps from Wrisrt candy watch club are better and have more comfortable nylon and more impressive hardware. While the original blushark does NOT feel like a poor quality product for its price point, I just personally feel that there are better comparable straps out there. However, I was VERY impressed with the Alphashark slim.
Could be a tiny bit longer so I can do the loop back on itself easier, but the quality is outstanding and the customer service is excellent.
Perfect with my new Hamilton Pilot Pioneer Auto. Just enough pop without overwhelming the piece. This is less flashy and a good bit classier than I expected.
My first Nato strap for my first automatic watch. I can't believe how comfortable this is compared to a metal bracelet. I've been missing out all these years!
These straps are fantastic! I have always used Strapcode and after buying one of these I would never go back. I have about 40 of the various models and can't say enough about the quality and fit.
Perfect! Awesome upgrade for my diver's watch. Very high quality at an excellent price point.

The original BluShark straps are outstanding. They are well made and I think the hardware is top notch. This particular black and gray Bond version is great on my Seiko Samurai SRPB51.
The quality of the band is top notch, and the comfort is comparable to the fashion!
Love the Bond nato, it really makes the watch stand out, and get lots of compliments! I did purchase the original, but now I wish I had gotten the Alpha Shark instead. I have a few Alpha Shark natos and the quality is better, but the original is still great if you don’t want to spend a little more.
Have put in on a classic 60s Omega dress watch. Looks very cool!
This is my second bond style NATO purchase, I LOVE IT
These are really great straps. All day comfort, robust hardware and I don't notice the stitching while I'm wearing one. I stumbled across BluShark almost by accident and I'm glad I did. I had horrible experience with a crappy NATO strap and almost swore them off entirely. Thanks to BluShark I only wear NATO straps.
This is the first blushark purchase I made because of the popularity of the bond strap. Once you buy the first one you're hooked. Wound up buying 5 more.

CASIO AMW-320C, con cinturino NATO bond, un orologio economico è diventato bellissimo. La qualità del cinturino e l'hardware sono al top. Acquistandone 5 ho fruito della promo con 2 in omaggio e spese di spedizione gratuite. Spedizione in Italia con DHL in 18 giorni. Consigliabile.
Adds new life to my old Traser Titanium.
I wasn't sure how i'd like the Bond Nato strap, but on this Hamilton Khaki Automatic, it looks fantastic.
Although my package was lost and the 1 month-long delay was painful, to say the least, it was all worth it in the end! This strap fits the wrist like a glove(?) to the point that I can barely feel its presence. The stitching, hardware, length, material, thickness and anything else conceivable is to the both perfectly designed and to the highest standard; certainly beyond what I predicted. This is my first NATO-buying experience and it won't be my last! Blushark I will meet you again very soon! *Big thumbs up*
Just the basics, Bond style. Great fit and finish from Blushark. It's both understated and outstanding.
At 11", the strap is a little short for my 7.25" wrist. Notice the tiny little loop. Need a 12.5" version! Other than that, this strap is cool.
Jose Jr R.
The quality is superb! Most definitely buying more in the future. Thanks Blu Shark. Cheers
Color is a little green let grey than real grey, but the quality of the hardware and feel of the fabric is great!
These bands are a huge step-up from the cheap $10 straps! the stitching, comfort, hardware and looks are far superior to any brand I have experienced yet! Cant say enough good about these Original style straps. Get them, you'll love them!
I bought the original series and I use it for my Casio Duro the hardware is amazing it's a fantastic NATO strap at any price

The quality of the strap blends well with my Seiko SNZF17. Looking forward to get the next one.
Love the Bond NATO from BluShark. Soft enough where it doesn’t bother my wrist, but sturdy enough that the watch isn’t flapping around on my arm. Most definitely buying more in the future.
Quality and texture are amazing, it is, however, too short in my opinion, even with my 6.5’ wrist, the tail of the strap cannot touch the second loop
Outstanding strap in every way. Elevates just about every dive watch in my collection. Highly recommended.
My first NATO was a blushark fir another watch. Later I bought one of those "other" straps for a new watch that advertised themselves as "made to military spec".... needless to say that when I compared it to my first blushark I was very disappointed. I ordered a new blushark for my new watch the next day. The bku shark fits better, has better hardware, andjust plain looks better. I learned my lesson!
I have not found a better clap for a NATO strap. Quality through and through.
I keep coming back for more..
Sweet to wear! I now like the watch that I strapped it to.
Juan Carlos L.
It looks perfect, thank you!
Excellent customer service, excellent quality. I used to buy the cheaper 4 packs on Amazon, this is 100% better. The quality is superb and is much more appropriate on a nice watch.
