This 18mm wide 1 piece nylon watch strap is called a Military MoD G10 Ballistic Nylon watch band. It is often worn by military personal, police, and divers. This one-piece 18mm watch band weaves through both lugs of the watch and under your watch. If one spring bar breaks, the remaining spring bar will hold the strap and your watch to your wrist. Great safety feature if you are active. Shiny, stainless-steel buckle and keeper rings. Width at the lug end of the watch is 18mm. Thickness is about 1.2mm. Length = 10.5" (if too long the end can be cut and sealed with a lighter)
The olive stripes on my band are far less olive than pictured. It's more like beige with a hint of olive. Not unattractive but not quite that match I was expecting for the green face on my watch.
I have bought these before and have been satisfied. I have a thin wrist, so I have to cut them to size. I use a match to melt and fuse the end I cut. My problem with this strap is part my own fault. I was looking at the colors that would match my watch. It's face is green and the strap to me looked black and green where as the the green part is a very light khaki. If I only read the description better it says "Black & Khaki". My bad.
So the strap is of a descent quality, and I like the hardware quality and feel of the strap itself. What really bothers me is the fact that it's not "olive" in the least bit. It's more of a khaki. Please don't think that it will have a green hue to the strap. It looks more like the colors of the New Orleans Saints. Just not for me.
I guess when you've had nice NATO bands like those from Tech Swiss and DaLuca, you become a snob. This deBeer band is probably good enough for a Timex Expedition watch, but it's something I'd put on a nicer watch. Feels pretty flimsy, both the band and the hardware.
My dad used to wear his watch on a band similar to this. Good quality band that serves it's purpose.....nothing complicated...
ordered by mistake not worth trying to send back...
decent strap, but the color is weird.
The color scheme looks great! It matches perfectly with my Weekender!
