8 Different Coloured Ribbed NATO watch straps against black dive watch

We all know that NATO watch straps are one of the most popular options in the market today. They are durable, comfortable and unreservedly secure. Additionally, they are fantastic value for money and with the vast array of colours and styles available, there is an option out there for all watches and personal style preferences.

So, let's take all of those great features and look specifically at our Ribbed NATO watch strap range to see what makes this watch strap stand out. What is it that makes these straps such an exciting option in their own right?


There is something about a watch and watch strap that tells its own story and this is the beauty of watch collecting, wearing and accessorising. You can own the same watch as somebody else, but from its personal history to the small marks and scratches, to the strap that you wear with it, that watch is ultimately an extension of you!

So, in keeping with styling out and personalising your wristwear, the beauty of the Ribbed NATO strap is its subtle ribbed texture which gives it an air of "vintage" about it. There is absolutely no doubting that these straps add a "je ne sais quoi" that elevate your watch to another level.


The new Ribbed NATO strap range also comes in 8 different colours at the time of writing:
Ribbed NATO Khaki against Black Submariner watch
    Yellow Ribbed NATO against Black Submariner watch

    Depending on your style, your mood, or even the season there is therefore always an option available for you.


    At The Thrifty Gentleman we always want to make sure that our customers have access to the most stylish affordable watch straps on the market. These Ribbed NATO watch straps certainly tick those boxes.

    If you are looking for a watch strap that adds a vintage style to your watch whilst retaining the security of the NATO strap, this Ribbed NATO watch strap could just be for you!
