Description

Parachute Elastic Marine Nationale Style Grey/Red Watch Strap

This Parachute Elastic Grey Watch Strap with Red Stripe is based on the famous straps worn by the French Navy or ‘Marine Nationale’.

Origins of the Marine Nationale Strap

Issued with Tudor watches without straps in the 1950’s, the Marine Nationale’s combat divers, or nageurs de combat, had to innovate. Creatively repurposing the elastic straps from their reserve parachute bags, these elastic straps were flexible, resilient, and comfortable over a wetsuit. Also, the metal elements on the parachute bag were similarly repurposed for the strap’s hardware: the keeper and hook clasp.

Why Choose a Parachute Elastic Watch Strap?

Perfect for summer wristwear, the Parachute Elastic Strap is an ideal partner for a dive watch. Crafted from premium elastic, the tight weave of the material is soft to the touch yet rugged and strong. The elastic wicks away sweat almost instantly and has the added advantage of being washable. The main weave is in a grey colour and as an added flourish the red central stripe is embossed into the weave. Also, the strap has a slim profile and is comfortable to wear.

The hardware is in brushed stainless steel. Furthermore, the hook buckle is slim so as to stop the strap being bulky, but strong enough to stand up to wear and tear.

Moreover, infinitely adjustable, this Parachute Elastic Grey Watch Strap should fit any wrist size. Finally, the strap’s design helps keep the watch safe, reducing the risk of loss due to spring bar failure.

The strap is also available in Navy, Black and Khaki Green.
