SKUÂ Code: NATO18GRYPVD
Classic NATO Watchband made from fast drying ballistic nylon webbing with black PVDÂ hardware. This high tech material is ideally suited for use in military watch straps because it is so robust, comfortable and long lasting. These watch straps themselves are perfect for all extreme activities because the design characteristics reduce the risk of losing a watch to virtually zero. In the past we have supplied them to Police and emergency services, exploration, Search and Rescue, oil and gas companies, marine salvage and exploration business and also companies operating in tropical or desert locations: the straps are ideally suited for all these applications by virtue of the fact they can be easily washed and they will dry in minutes. These bands are suitable for watches made by all leading military contractors as well as robust civilian brands.Â
The special covert matt black non reflective PVD finish is often specified in military contracts for many special forces units as well as by anti terrorist units and for various covert operations. In the PVD process the steel is not black all the way through because the colour is created by a special chemical PVD plating process which is vastly superior to the painted finish used on some lower quality bands which can easily fade or rub off. This PVD process means that the colour of the steel is altered at a molecular level, therefore it will not deteriorate even during heavy usage although it can be destroyed if the buclke is badly damaged by a piece of metal being gouged out or if it’s worn down by really heavy abrasion against rocks or something similar.
