We have created a stunning range of French Style Military
straps. Also known as French Marine National Elastic straps. Our straps have a soft woven, high quality elastic nylon! Our buckle is made with a solid 316L stainless steel brushed buckle - there is no compromise on quality as 316L stainless steel is highly resistant to heat and corrosion and used in marine applications so makes it perfect for the use in our watch straps.
During the 1960's and 1970's the French Navy (the Marine Nationale) issued their underwater combat divers with commercial divers watches from Tudor, Doxa, Triton and ZRC.
Although the watches were tough and met the military specifications the straps were often too small and non-adjustable so the divers struggled to fit them over their thick rubber wetsuits. So the MN divers used to choose and make their own straps.
Some of the divers used elastic webbing cut from the straps of French Army parachutes to make a single pass watch strap. Due to their simple steel buckle and hook the straps were comfortable and could even be adjusted with one hand.
If you have a great watch but it's uncomfortable to wear then you need to consider swapping the strap not your watch.
These MN Style elastic Military
Straps are arguably the most comfortable strap you will ever wear. Because of the stretch and elasticity the straps will expand and contract with the natural swelling in your wrist. This makes them exceptionally comfortable for any kind of sports or exercise even with the heaviest of Divers watches.
