Hope this is the right Board for this question.......

Purchased a Tissot from a Private Seller and he included a few extra straps inside the package

These two were included and I am not sure how to describe them - SEE PICTURES.

Are they "NATO's" ( a term I have seem many times, but don't really understand as I don't own even one watch on a NATO )

Or, are they something else?

Material seems to be nylon?

Thanks.

NATO straps. NATO straps come from the MOD and are called that because they were given a NATO stock number. So they were true military hardware design.

Thanks!

So what I have pictured are simply a couple of nylon straps - correct?
Is there any benefit to trying to see them, do they have any value?

They're waterproof, strong and dry relatively fast. A big advantage is that if a spring bar fails the watch will still be attached to your wrist by the remaining spring bar saving it from falling and being damaged or being lost all together.

Many people like them because they're inexpensive and easy to change giving your watch a new look in seconds.

As for value most would be near zero used. There are some pricey ones, but those aren't what you have there.
