While there are many sites online that sell replacement watch bands, few were founded specifically to sell canvas-style watch straps. Hello NATO Strap is a rare exception and offers a unique range of replacement watch bands for men and women. Founded in 2010, the site aims to make it easy for watch lovers to continuously reinvent their timepieces with affordable, but well made replacement watch bands.
While Hello NATO Strap specializes in NATO straps, the site does have a nice selection of Perlon straps. They carry every neutral shade imaginable and some other fashion colors, including pastels and jewel tones. Nearly all of the styles are available in 18-millimeter and 20-millimeter widths, and select colors are offered in 22-millimeter large sizes. Buckle options include silver, yellow gold toned or black PVD plating, and stainless steel is used for the hardware.
In addition to the traditional Perlon straps, Hello NATO Strap sells a number of NATO straps made from a plaited material similar to Perlon. These straps are unique and not something you’ll find in the inventories of most retailers. They’re a nice choice for someone who likes the breathable weave of Perlon but doesn’t want to give up the added security of a NATO band.
The Perlon straps at Hello NATO Strap differ in price depending on their type. The classic Perlon straps with silver and gold buckles cost $12.50, while the extra white and black PVD styles cost $14.50. The price point puts Hello NATO Strap above some other online stores, but the retailer does offer free worldwide shipping on orders of $10 or more.
