NATO Straps Wiki: NATO watch straps, also known as "NATO Straps", were developed by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) for wartime usage. It is a one piece strap slid through the spring bars of the watch case and then slid into the appropriate notch, and then folded back to secure excess strap and prevented from sticking out of the main watch strap portion. The strap has been used in James Bond movies. The Zulu watch strap and the NATO watch strap are both typically made of nylon. Perlon straps, Zulu straps, and NATO straps go completely around the wrist, including behind the case. Other wrist strap styles allow the back of the watch case to directly contact the skin.
