KAPTEN & SON believes in changing the basic understanding of wearing watches by introducing removable nylon straps, interchangeable in a few seconds. While typically a watch is worn with a single wristband, whether nylon- or leather strap, every day and with every outfit, our KAPTEN & SON straps allow a whole new perspective. Just as you are known for matching your daily shoes, pants, belt, shirt and other accessories, you can now go even one step further.
Straps can be matched for every outfit. An accessory that stands out, impresses in every detail and represents the character of its wearer. The history of NATO straps goes way back to the 60s. In these days straps were made for the British Ministry of Defence in order to prevent the loss of the watch in battle. The particular advantage of these straps is in case of rupture of one of the two spring bars the watch is still hanging on the wrist, which is not the case for conventional straps. However, real fame and publicity of nylon straps in the mainstream was received through the most famous and well-known officer of the Royal Navy: James Bond. The G10 NATO nylon straps were 007’s companions in the movies "Goldfinger" and "Thunderball". #staykapten
