A band of a different style, the NYC NATO Horween watch band

NYC NATO Horween watch band

I will admit that I have a rather large collection of watches. While most don’t get worn on a regular basis, I do have a couple that I would consider my every day users. While these are not necessarily the most expensive or elaborate watches, they are reliable/durable and I am always looking for ways to make them a little more personal or unique. One way to do this is by changing out the watch band. Watch bands come in many styles and materials, but to me nothing beats a great leather band for style and durability. With that in mind I have come across the Worn & Wound NYC NATO Horween watch bands. While the NATO style watch band is not unusual, having it in leather is a little rarer. The NYC NATO Horween watch band is a “Snuff Suede” leather made from Horween leather. The NYC NATO Horween comes in two lug widths 20 and 22 mm, two hardware choices matte steel or black PVD hardware and in five colors which are olive, graphite, russet, black and limited edition coal. At a price of $59 from the Worn & Wound website, they may be a little pricey, but American made quality is always worth it.

    The ones shown are the ones that wrap through one side, go to the back, and then wrap on the other side.

    Can any watch handle such a thing or is it a special type of watch?

    @Sandee Cohen In theory any watch with a lug width of 20 or 22 mm should work with that band…

    I purchased several NATO straps from Crown and Buckle. Great quality but I notice their prices have increased a lot since my last order. cheapestnatostraps.com are similar but half the price.
