Nicknamed the G-10 after the form British Special Forces had to file before being issued with one, the rugged practicality of the NATO band has dominated watch culture for generations. Now, Longvadon has officially ushered this fashion icon into the 21st century with the introduction of the first Apple Watch NATO band in history.
The Band Your Series 1-8 (and Ultra) Apple Watch has Been Waiting for
The NATO Leather band range redefines what is possible by seamlessly integrating a timeless design with any Series 1-8 (SE & Ultra) Apple Watch. Available in five gorgeous colors: Midnight Black, Navy Blue, Army Green, Mahogany Brown, and Whiskey Brown. Compatible with 42/44/45/49mm watch cases (including the SE and Ultra models) and securely fastened with Longvadon’s proprietary 316L stainless steel adapters.
Revolutionary Then. Revolutionary Now
The original NATO band was crafted from a single piece of material that would pass under the watch face. It was durable, practical, and allowed soldiers to operate under the harshest conditions. Creating a NATO band compatible with an Apple Watch has proved a challenge as the single strap would block the watch's sensors. Always at the forefront of innovation, Longvadon has created the world’s first two-piece NATO strap expertly designed to look and function just like the original while perfectly pairing with your apple watch.
The end of the NATO strap was left intentionally long to allow the wearer to fit the band over bulky clothing and typically tucked in on itself when not required, lending the strap its distinctive look. The 12-hole long-side strap can be worn on the broadest range of wrist sizes and even over your wetsuit when duty calls. Meanwhile, the exposed leather lining has been buffed and treated for extra suppleness. All-day comfort guaranteed, no matter the climate.
Depend on Military-Grade Precision
The NATO series has been designed to the final stitch by Longvadon in Europe. As the only G-10 Apple watch band in existence, no expense has been spared to meet exacting military-grade standards. Six intricate stitch lines traverse the finest bovine leather, detailed by the traditional three stainless steel loops, and finished with Longvadon’s pioneering custom-made ardillon buckle.
The Name's Bond. James Bond.
Already ubiquitous among military personnel, the NATO band gained widespread civilian recognition when Sean Connery donned the strap alongside his iconic Rolex Submariner. To craft a band befitting the world's most impeccably dressed spy, our NATO series features only the highest-grade materials; full-grain aniline vegetable-tanned bovine leather accented with finely polished 316L stainless steel loops. We’ll be taking that martini shaken, not stirred.
