Watches are like an ornament on the hands of a male. The females can always wear bangles on their wrists to make it look attractive. Men have the wristbands etc. However, nothing can beat the good old wristwatch. In addition, the watches of today come in beautiful shapes and colors. They have beautiful straps as well. This adds to the attractiveness quotient. One such strap is the NATO strap. Before we look into the ten watches that come with the NATO strap, we should have a brief idea as to what do we mean by the word NATO.
When we hear the word NATO, the first thing that comes to mind is “North Atlantic Treaty Organization.” Is this the same NATO, we are referring to? In a way, we should say YES. The soldiers were the first ones to use the strap. They had to fill a form G1098 otherwise known as G10 to obtain the strap. These were simple nylon straps with the buckles made of chromium-plated brass.
Nato Straps is making a comeback and we here are ten watches that come with the NATO strap.
