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
Superlative product, highly competitive price, Fantastic service!
nice strap just i wish they had the bond orange stripe for my watch
very well made strap, extremely comfortable and quality components even a signed buckle! The whole ordering process and delivery was quick and easy, only downside is you can't order just one.....it quickly becomes addictive!! I will be buying lots more in the future!
I've always wanted a vintage bond strap. This goes well with my Tudor by giving it the necessary pop.
Love the vintage bond with SKX007. Very sharp. Own the standard grey/black bond too. Both are sturdy and comfortable. Ordered the orange orca as well, can't wait til it arrives. Great customer service when processing returns as well. Thanks Joe & team!
The quality of the other straps I have is no comparison to the BluShark natos. Keep up the good work!
Absolutely love this watch strap... Comfy, easy to install, sharp, seriously one of the best purchases I have ever made.
Sexy product and feels great, will definitely make future purchases!
It's robust, thick and feels very durable. Just amazing !!
I love this strap with my Seiko. Superb quality materials and craftsmanship, beautiful straps, the best I've found, and at a reasonable price tag. I don't think I'd buy a NATO elsewhere now that I've discovered Blushark. Cheers.
Nice bond NATO on the 007
Like everyone I wanted a well constructed band, good hardware and lots of colour combinations. Like everyone I spent way to much money ordering online from many companies claiming they had what I wanted but never really delivered. I found the reviews on YouTube to be very positive, checked their website and just about fainted, $18—-$32 !!!! Holy crap !!! US $$$ !!! Boy did I agonize over that. Then I saw buy 2 get one free. I took the plunge and ordered 3, damned near $60 CDN ! They took about 10 days to arrive (my only complaint) but were they nice, so much so, I have 3 more coming in probably 10 friggin days Buy them they are very very good
Love the vintage bond strap. looks great on a number of my watches. Fantastic quality.
Love the strap! Super comfortable and gives my chrono some serious style!
Just wanted to let you know that I received my Vintage Bond strap much earlier than I expected which was fantastic! I think that it's an incredibly well made, stylish strap that elevates my beloved Seiko SKX013 in a very fashion forward manner. I look forward to expanding my collection in the near future and I look forward to purchasing from the Alpha line as well for some of my premium watches.
Loving the bond classic! Very well made, will definitely last for years.
Great quality. Will purchase more in the future. Definitely recommend
I am new to watch collecting so it was cool to discover while reading the forums that people like to swap straps out, and that NATO straps (G10 to be accurate) are a favorite. So after reading more I decided BluShark was the way to go. I ordered three straps, two originals, the one pictured here being one of them at 18mm. The third a 22mm Orca. I think this is a good example of how a nice strap can make even an ordinary old quartz watch look like something completely new and pleasing to the eye. This strap is actually intended for a black dial/bronze case Vostok Komandirskie that has not yet arrived. Which brings me to another thing that I discovered is really nice about the G10, that they can be easily swapped out without tools, and shared across different watches in your collection. For a dress watch there are other strap options I'd look at first, but a G10 may be appropriate on my Bambino with business casual attire. BluShark quality, materials, and construction are exceptional, with the Orca being significantly heavier gauge materials, not to say that the original is in any way inferior, just not as beefy as the Orca. Having a smaller wrist and medium size watches the original will seem to work better for me in most cases. But the 22mm Orca should should look great on the larger diver that I intend to wear it on. As for the 11" length, it works fine for me, although my wrist is only average in size. If you have a very large wrist you will be using the holes closer to the end of the strap, with not much if any extra to fold under into that first loop. Not sure on that but something you may want to inquire about if you have a large wrist. Great top quality products, reasonable prices, and am sure I will be back all too often :) I can honestly say that outside of the very expensive luxury brand NATOs I doubt you will find better. Certainly not at this price point. I hope that my review helps in tour decision. Enjoy!
The Blushark really jazzes up my Steinhart Ocean One. Makes me feel like a young man again!
