Being a brand owner himself (of the brand Jubelion), we got talking about factories, sales, and watch ideas.  It was then he told me about his collaboration with Alvin Lye from Azimuth working on a space-themed watch, which I found very intriguing.

Choosing A NATO Watch Strap | Elastic vs. Seat Belt vs. Ballistic vs Twill

From the British military to the wrists of watch enthusiasts and newbies alike, within the last 50 years, NATO straps have become a staple even in the most expensive timepiece collections. Apple Watches, Rolexes, Cartiers, and Patek Philippes – whether it costs $30 or $3000, the versatility and durability of nylon-based NATO straps allow them to paired well with most designs, and their lower price-point means you pay less for more options.
