Our leather NATO/ZULU watch bands are a great alternative for those who like the convenience of a one piece watch strap but dislike nylon or canvas materials. Although the variety of colors available for our leather NATO/ZULU bands are not as extensive as our nylon NATO strap, we still have an interesting array of colors for you to pick from. These leather one piece straps are great straps for chronograph watches as they have a good balance of elegance but also an element of casual style. We also have 2 distinct hardware styles to choose from: a chunkier, buckle and keepers with rounded edges which are known as "ZULU" and the typical "NATO" style hardware that are slightly more angular and less protruding. For those who are more conscious about wearing leather or have allergy to leather products, we also offer a faux leather alternative. These PU leather watch straps are made to look exactly like leather, but are synthetically produced. Therefore, you can have a stylish leather look without compromising on ethical believes. At Wabistraps, we are happy when your needs are met so we hope to expand our line of faux leather watch bands one step at a time.
DETERMINING STRAP SIZE
The size of our straps are determined by the distance between the lugs of your watch. Luckily, finding that measurement is easy. You do not have to bring your watch to a watchmaker to figure that out.
Using a millimeter ruler, simply measure the distance between the tip of your watch or the width of your existing strap (See picture above).
This measurement is known as the lug width and will be useful in helping you pick out the correct size when buying your watch strap.
