The NATO strap was originally made longer so that military personnel could wear their watch over their clothes. This historical background has given NATO straps a strong masculine, military connotation, but Knot’s idea of a NATO strap sets a new standard for business use as well as for any gender.
The strap is made from Jeans leather (the type of leather used for jeans labels), which is one of the softest Tochigi leathers. Infused with oil for an attractive sheen, it adapts to your wrist every time you wear it. This means the strap does not become loose when worn on a smaller wrist.
Square-shaped metal loop for a sharp look
The strap’s square metal loop gives it a smart edge, making it suitable for business use as well as coordinating with a range of outfits. This is Knot’s new standard for NATO straps.
Handcrafted by skilled artisans specialized in watch straps, from cutting the leather to finishing the edges, to stitching the side stitches. The reverse side is made from Nume (case) vegetable tanned leather, an exceptional material which further adds to the strap’s quality.
Tochigi leather is tanned exclusively with natural vegetable tannin, making it truly “one of a kind”.
