We are pleased to announced that we have recently teamed up with the Haveston team from the United Kingdom, where you can find some of their signature series such as the Corp. Canvas, Service, Parade, as well as the HAV-IVA and Stowage/ Accessories on our website (coming soon). To those who are looking for vintage military theme watch straps, be sure to check out the various series we have from Haveston.
We are thrilled to be able to work with the Haveston team, since we are both strap makers who are constantly trying to not only design watch bands and accessories for our customers, but we are both constantly trying to improve and refine our goods so that we can provide and be able to offer quality goods for our customers. Since it was only our first time working with the Haveston team, we have acquired some of their signature line into our collection. Watch straps from Haveston are designed and inspired with a vintage military & color themes throughout their various collections.
Corp. Canvas Series - feature a single one-piece rugged cotton strap layout paired with their signature secondary floating keeper, which allows the spare tail to be tucked away without the need for folding back. The rugged cotton material used on these straps are quite thick that measures at 1.5mm. As a friendly reminder, watches with a limited springbar to case clearance, make sure your have enough space in order for the strap to be able to slide through the case clearance. If you're looking for something colorful in Corp. Canvas series, the P-42 Camouflage Canvas Strap maybe your choice of strap. The design and color used on the limited edition canvas strap was inspired by the United States Marine Corps P42 Reversible Camouflage "Frogskin" pattern HBT Uniform from WWII. On top of that, the buckle is also available in a bead blasted Black PVD option. The overall length for the canvas strap is 275mm (without buckle), suitable for wrist size from 145mm - 225mm / 5.75"- 8.75".
Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Red On General Service Khaki & Olive Dual Set Watch Straps from Haveston
Service Series- feature a multi-color combination with a center stripe down the middle of the strap. The design and color used on the The Carrier A2 Strap was inspired by the USN Tri-Color Scheme of 1943 which employed counter-shading and counter-shadowing techniques. These comprised: Non-Specular Sea Blue (ANA 607) and Non-Specular Intermediate Blue (ANA 608) for upper and middle surfaces. While Non-Specular Insignia White (ANA 601) was used for lower surfaces. The overall length and thickness for the Service Series straps are slightly shorter and thinner than the Corp. Canvas Series at 270mm (buckle excluded) and thickness of 1.30mm, suitable for wrist size from 145mm - 225mm / 5.75"- 8.75".
Within the Service Series collection, the General Service Straps are perhaps one of my favorite straps from the entire collection. The General Services straps are made up of traditional ballistic nylon, paired with a bead blasted Zulu steel buckle with no spring bar, pad reinforced hole to enhance durability, secondary keeper to allow the spare tail to be tucked away tail and retention, as well as unique subdued designation markings. They are available in a dual set (A) Black staple and an Admiralty based Grey, (B) Olive Drab and Khaki, both classic field tones. HAV-IVA Series- are inspired by the use of original vintage space flown strap design utilized by astronauts to wrist mount mission tools.
