    Watchgecko NATO advice

    Could just do with a bit of info from you guys in the know about NATO straps, I purchased the above Strap from eBay from a private seller that stated it was new.

    When it came it was shorter than the usual 30cm straps that I have in my collection from Watchgecko, this ones under 27cm and I can't find anything on the internet about this size, they all seem to be 30cm

    Is it likely to be another brand in Watchgecko packaging?? It looks well made and, thick material and good hardware, just very short.

    It looks like it’s from their iridescent range and yes they are shorter than usual. I had that very strap until a few weeks ago.

    Watchgecko do some “short NATO” straps for certain models in their range... length is quoted as 270mm on their website...

    HTH 👍

    Thanks for the advice guys, I thought this would be the case, like i said it's a good quality strap but being new to Nato's it threw me a bit

    I have a Watch Obsession premium Nato that is 270mm and it is wearable but there is no strap to fold back through the metal retainers hence why I have been ordering the gecko ones.

    Haveston are all 270mm, Barton do 2 sizes in 10 and 11 inches. These are the last 2 makes I've bought.

    It's just to short and tends to slip out of that second keeper.

    Shame as it's a nice Strap.

    Don’t the WG NATO’s have black watchgecko labels on the underside?
