Great chance to get a completely new look on your military timepiece or other watch at an affordable price. Try a leather NATO style strap custom-made in the United Kingdom with the same shiny chromed hardware as nylon NATOs. Choose from sizes 18mm, 20mm and 22mm. LEATHOS are available in three colors and two different finishes. They are made of durable but flexible leather that will work with fixed-lug watches or with standard spring bars.

Choose from black or brown in smooth matte finish or pebbled finish, or the new chestnut medium brown color shown below. They are also available in grey leather meant to simulate the color of the original G10 nylon grey NATOs.


LEATHOs are fully stitched leather straps made in the United Kingdom the old-fashioned way. Each strap has two sandwiched layers of leather plus a back leather strap that goes under the watch just like a regular NATO, holding your watch very securely with no chance of it detaching.

LEATHOs are a bargain at less than $30 each. The best part about the LEATHO is it has no cumbersome foldover or tail (excess length) --- just a nice, neat finish under the buckle as shown!

LEATHOs measure 9 3/4 inches because you eliminate the excess length with no foldover (that is why the length is shorter than my nylon NATOs). The regular size fits wrists up to about 7 1/2 inches.

Here is a list of sizes and colors of LEATHOs available now for immediate shipping:

chestnut medium brown (with white or brown matching stitching)
black matte smooth finish
black pebbled finish
brown matte smooth finish
black calf grain finish (not pictured)

*Please bear in mind that, due to the added thickness of leather NATOs, they may not slip through very tight fixed lugs on some watches with little clearance between lug and case, such as Benrus Type I and II watches and Marathon Navigators.
