Seatbelt Nato – 20mm


Categories: , Tags: ,


Choose the correct width for your watch. The width of the nato needs to be the same width as the lugs of the watch it is used on. I have added the lug width in the “dimensions” section of a watch discription. For the SKX007 or SRPD-Sports you need a 22mm nato strap, for the SNKE53 you need an 18mm strap.

Based on the dimensions of my Supernato I have made nato straps made of the very comfortable “seatbelt-nylon. It is woven like a seatbelt, so it is very souple and soft. The straps are just a bit thicker (1,5mm instead of 1,2mm), so watch out for watch cases where the push pins are located near the watch case.

On the right, samples of straps. Bottom one is the average length of a nato, in the middle, one of the first nato straps I have had produced, already longer. And the top one it the current SuperNato: longer and better posiotioned loops. Nato-vergelijk
With regards to the Supernato the changes that have been made are the nylon and the buckle. Position of the loops and the length of the strap is the same.

When a nato strap is too long: put it between two coins and cut it. Melt the threads with a lighter, press them together when they are hot. Sometimes threads that hold the loops stick out a bit, melt them and press them flat.
