I learned from the jeweler that the extra length of the band allows application over a jacket/sweater. Love the quality and polished look.
As my Father taught me “The poor man pays twice” and purchasing a Blu Shark strap means you will not have to continue to buy cheap straps when you could just buy one.
Quality and attention to detail is evident, great work Blue Shark team!
El acabado es muy bueno, la correa es cómoda y muy bonita, seguro que durará mucho tiempo. Me encanta
Blu Shark are now my default for Nato straps, quality and fittings are excellent- simply the best. It’s refreshing to deal with a Us company and even though I’m in UK ordering is easy and delivery is quick. I’ve paid £100 before for limited edition Natos from elsewhere, a regular Blueshark strap exceeds the quality of that £100 strap- maybe Blueshark could do some? They’d sell!
It's a shame that BluShark's customer service is is so terrible (nonexistent) because their straps seem to be very nice. I had an issue with my order where I was sent the wrong item. It seems like BluShark also has some order packing issues in addition to their customer service issues as this seems to be a common occurrence. I sent two emails to email@example.com and, after more than a week, have not received a single response. Joe / BluShark, Since you're ignoring my requests for order support, I'll likely have to just put up with the fact that you sent me the wrong item but this will be the last time I order anything from BluShark if this is how you do business; sending the incorrect items and then ignoring your customers when they contact you for support.
Just an excellent accessory. Go get one, or twenty!
Nice, quality strap. Very comfortable to wear, no frayed edges. And it looks great! Thank you!
Very well made. The colors and texture work well together. Seems to be very durable.
Everything was perfect.
Great deals, ordered 3 and got 2 for free. But accidentally ordered the wrong size and customer service was quick to respond. I sent 2 straps back in and got 2 replacement straps within a reasonable time. Definitely ordering again!
I `m upset, because I had to pay 11€ customs, what was not announced before.
I love the look and feel of this strap. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because on strap I received the clasp and the cross bar on the clasp seems to be very loose. It can easily move around and wiggle and make a funny noise. So, I don't know if I trust it to not break? Is this normal? Other than that I like it.
I must have had an older model of this strap, it was the classic bond and i had it for about 3 years before one of the pins broke. I ordered another one and when it came it the metal was thinner and doesn’t seem as strong and the canvas was much thinner then the former. If people like the products now good for them but they should have seen it before.
Love all the straps I've gotten, Blushark is the best.
Great watch straps so comfortable I can hardly tell it is on my wrist. They don't itch or scratch I've tried other NATO straps in the past they itch scratched and even left a rash. So far I'm very impressed The prices are awesome as well you can't beat it. I have three of these straps and have had them for two weeks. I switch them out and wear them everyday. I'm very pleased and happy.
Great band, excellent look and feel!
Very comfortable around the wrist and looks way better then a rubber strap
The perfect Bond Nato band does exist! The mix of colors are my favorite. Doesn't fall apart or fray at the edges like the other brands. I have 8+ bands from BluShark and I love them all!
The original design is more green. With thinner red stripes. This has red stripe that are wider and appears too red as a whole. Was expecting it.
I wanted a band for my Soviet-era designed Vostok Amphibia. I figured the Bond strap would be perfect - like he took it as a trophy from a defeated spy. It looks great, and I know I have it upside down (I have a big wrist).
My new favorite brand. Excellent build quality. Excellent customer service.
I’m so happy with my Vintage Bond Watch Strap. The quality is amazing. Thank you
This is my second strap from blue shark and love the quality for not a lot money ..the orginal style bond strap I just purchased makes my Tudor homage watch look the business
It's so good and comfortable simply perfect
The vintage bond strap adds some character to my otherwise utilitarian Casio Pro Trek. I reused the original strap keeper to add a bit of OEM vibe. I especially like that BluShark offers the PVD black hardware option on many colors; other brands do not offer a choice, which is a deal breaker on an all black watch.
Screams quality, excellent hardware to, not gonna be my last purchase
One of the best NATO straps I've used in terms of quality and comfort. Will definitely buy again.
Love the strap!
Wonderful strap, great quality nylon and hardware.
Excellent quality as usual. PVD hardware is dope and the strap colors are complimentary to my Rangeman.
This is one of three NATO Straps I bought, this I paired with a Seiko 5 sports. It looks and wears brilliant.
Premium quality love the polished hardware and super comfy!!"pops"
The strap itself is fine but far to short for a NATO strap. My wrist is 6 and 7/8th inches - so clearly a "medium size" wrist. However, the strap tail is so short that it barely fits in the keeper when folded over (which is the correct way to wear a NATO). If you have a small wrist, you'll be fine. However, if your wrist is medium or large, don't purchase until (if?) they lengthen the strap.
Good base model strap. Quality exceeds price point, BUT I must mention. If you're looking for the proper 1964 Goldfinger Rolex 6538(Or Homage) iconic look, look elsewhere. Blue, green, and red were the Royal Navy's colors put on RAF straps back then (as pictured right of the BluShark strap). If you're intending on recreating the pure class of Sean Connery checking the time during a dim-lit evening with his lighter moments before the charges he just set detonate... this isn't it friend. HOWEVER, if you want to sport this black, green, and red strap because BluShark makes excellent straps you should absolutely do it.
super watch band. Matches vintage submarine commemorative watch from CCCP 1991.
Bought 4 straps. Quality is excellent, no complaints.
The straps are as advertised; high quality, comfortable, breathable, water proof and easy to keep clean. The hardware is also top notch.
Cool strap just like all the others I’ve purchased.
Would love this in a single pass Zulu. Great product!
Love the black and green, gives the Monaco a totally different look... Love ur bands
Another beautiful BluShark Strap. Very clear and distinct colors with an amazing sheen.
One of many different bands that I purchased recently and I can’t get enough of these! Love the quality and colors! Absolutely recommended for their high value.
Vintage Bond on Sub with No Cyclops magnifier. Looks awesome despite the busted crystal to be replaced at service!
Cheap price、Good quality. With my SEIKO SPB079J1(sbdc063).
These straps are far superior to any other NATO straps I have found. From the material, to the findings, to the color and length of the strap these are a pleasure to wear!
This is the third strap from my buy 2 get 1 free deal. As expected, the strap is comfortable and makes this least used watch get back in the rotation.
Perfect colours to set off the bright orange hour hand of a Divers watch, the real highlight is the solid metal buckle (brushed steel for me) inscribed with ‘BluShark’ in neat curvy script.
Makes a cheap digital watch I have look nifty. I'm purchasing a gun-metal diver's watch to go with it.
Awesome, wears very comfortable and makes my Glycine Combat Sub step it up a notch
My first order from BluShark. Won’t be my last! Excellent “build quality” in their products, and customer service sets a high standard for anyone doing online retail marketing.
My first NATO so I had to go with the Bond. Great quality, bright, sharp colors, and high end hardware. I won’t buy NATOs from anyone else.
I've purchased several NATO bands from here, and love all of them! Fantastic quality, material and workmanship. Very pleased!
Fantastic NATO straps - great quality nylon and really well done hardware. Thanks!
First nato strap ever, and it matches the colour scheme of this seiko recraft ssc513 perfectly.
The colours are great and go with everything. The steel hardware looks great in polished. Also, the keepers don't add an unnecessary bulk.
Great texture, very nice colors and very comfortable. I enjoy it very much.
A real vintage look and feel. I will reorder this band.
I've been replacing all my favorite colors from other nato manufacturers with BluShark. I won't wear any other.
For a non-premium nato, it feels like one! Super silky and comfortable!
Great band. Colors are wonderful and length is ideal. Highly recommended item.
If you are a Bond freak like me, you want as close to the real thing as possible. This band is it. Quality is the thing. You either have are you don't. Blue Shark has it. This color goes back to Sean Connery. I wonder how may people remember Dr. No?
I purchased the blacked out version of the Vintage Bond NATO for my blacked out chrono. It’s a stunning combo. The length is perfect for a good wrap over the second bar on my 6.75” wrist. The finished holes and clean edging shows high-quality attention to detail.
I think it matches the watch perfectly. It gives it s bit of flair.
Looks pretty cool, good quality :)
This is a watch band, specifically a nato strap, that got me enthusiastically wearing a watch again. I’m a 50 yo guy and the fun this strap brings to the day harkens back to my underoos as a kid. A bit much but true.
Really like the strap, very comfortable and feels quite durable as well.
Order it because many people recommend it so I decided to give it a try. Pretty happy with the result because i order 3 NATO just for a specific model and they all look great. Already considering my next purchase. Thanks for the good work, keep on going.
This is a very wonderful nato straps. it’s totally worth this price. I ordered five that pretty match my mdv106.
The original BluShark straps are excellent. They are well made and use better hardware than straps I've owned from other manufacturers. This particular Bond version pairs perfectly with my Seiko SKX007.
Truthfully, I was expecting the strap to be a little thicker. That's the only issue in my opinion.
What a good way to give new life to a fifteen year old watch, and replace a dated bracelet. Quality top notch!
This is probably my 10th BluShark NATO strap. Fantastic quality. Long lasting and very comfortable. The vintage bond NATO is a nice compliment to any diver's watch
A perfect cold war couple: my soviet Vostok Kommandirskie watch and a Blushark Bond Vintage strap...
A perfect cold war couple: my soviet Vostok Kommandirskie watch and a Blushark Bond Vintage strap...
Fantastic products! I now have 5 BluShark bands and it’s like having 5 new watches!!!
The most comfortable and durable straps I've had, I have already purchased a lot of originals from blushark and will definitely come back for more:)
Ordered my first NATO strap (an unbranded el cheapo sue me I knew nothing at the time) when my OEM band finally bit the dust. I couldn't wear the cheap strap for more than a few hours before the stitching starting rubbing my skin raw. I decided to educate myself in strapology and in the process read some good things about BluShark and eagerly ordered a few to try. One for the Citizen, one for the Seiko 5 and one more because it was free. I've been using these straps for a few weeks now all day everyday with zero discomfort. I will now wear BluShark straps exclusively. Everything about the BluShark strap screams quality and that's just the original. The next watch I buy must have at least 20mm lugs because I'd really love to try one of the AlphaShark straps.
go for alpha premier when you can...
This is my 2nd Blushark strap, I've got the gray and black bond with brushed hardware as well as the original green/red bond with pvd hardware. Both straps are the best nylon straps I've used, from the rich colors to the quality hardware Blushark stands out over the other nylon straps I've used in the past. Will definitely be buying more, if you see a size and color for your watch that you like, just get it - a lot of sizes I have with the color I want are sold out!!
Great strap, top quality at a great price. I'm super happy.
First experience with any nato bands. Great quality of fit and finishing from Blushark. Really pops on my Steinhart 42mm OMV.
Love all the Blu Shark straps but this is one I really have not found the right watch to match with. Great quality but it comes down to color choices. So many and this one always seems to come in second to the others I own.
These are hands down the best thing you can do to have a little fun with your timepieces! Best strap material and the hardware is best I’ve seen.
Love it AAA+++
Very well made, nice heavy buckle. Just wish they had an Alpha Shark 18mm version with this color.
Best nato straps around!
It looks good on just about every watch I own.
I bought this for the Seiko mid size divers and it looks great! I also bought the 'Pepsi' version to complement the blue and red bezel of the watch. The fit is perfect with the number of holes available. The fabric and hardware feel strong enough to last several years. The edge feels smooth and not sharp so it does not cut into the skin even when snugly worn.
I bought this strap for a Timex weekender, that my wife promptly took from me when I changed the straps out. She loves it.
This is the only place to go for Straps!! I own several now. On this Bond and Soviet watch combo; The PVD hardware is out standing. These straps are tough and hold up to the elements! I keep coming back!
The quality is amazing! You really can't beat the price. Shipped within 3 days. Would definitely buy additional items and recommend to friends.
I bought 3 straps for my Seiko 5 SNK803 and I think this one is my favorite. It adds such a nice touch to the watch and is very comfortable to wear. Thank you BluShark for making an outstanding product.
Great feel and durable. I just don't think the color is for me. I'm giving it a try, but gray/black and gray/black/blue just speak to me so much more. Giving it a try today and hopefully it stays on for a week. Living NATO strap life! So easy to change the look of your watch moment to moment. Nice quality, durable and comfortable. I love the brushed steel hardware, it matches the bead-blasted finish on my Seiko SNK809 very well.
This is like my fifth strap from BluShark and I love it! Only thing that would make it better is if the colors were darker, like more on the maroon and darker olive side
