I am amazed by the quality of this haveston nato strap. I buy straps regularly and like to switch them for different occasions. I have so many natos and singles and any kind of straps from many companies but honestly I am very pleased and impressed by the high quality of this. I know it is a little bit pricey for a nato strap but with this silky appearance, this strap is something different . I purchased this specifically for my Breitling superocean II 42 mm, and should say it is little bit thick to slide under the pins but it is just as good as something produced for this watch . I am very happy about this purchase and will get other colors for my other watches as well. Holbens customer service is phenomenal as well and shipping is free and Owners are very special people . I am addicted to Holbens what can I say. I also posted a photo at snupps.com to show my new strap to my watch enthusiasts. They don't like cheap items and they all amazed about this and of course Holbens as well.
I have 3 of their straps... it's unfair to compare to other nylon straps, 10 hour shifts in a medical facility and I won't notice it. Very silky and nice with my seiko 5, hamilton khaki king and seiko alpinist. Highly recommend.
Haveston Parade Strap, Insignia Blue is a luxury strap. It’s thin, silky soft, radiant, and comfortable. The ultra smooth texture compliments fine timepieces and gives the watch a dressed up look. I like the way this strap compliments my Rolex Submariner.
The strap is very attractive, and fits my small wrist well! The material does look very elegant, and I paired it with a black watch, the overall look being sleek and minimal. The polished metal details and angular cut of the buckle and strap end are nice details.
I know...a NATO band - but trust me, these Haveston's have an edge I can't really put my finger on. Maybe just attention to detail or base materials...they just have a mojo that other bands do not.
