What are Fabric Watches?
Fabric watches are wristwatches featuring fabric straps rather than leather, rubber, or metal. Fabric straps are more flexible. That makes them more comfortable for some people. Fabric straps that loop under the bottom of the watch case provide a barrier between case and skin, potentially benefiting people who might otherwise experience an allergic reaction.
What are fabric straps?
Fabric straps are typically single piece straps made from any number of different woven fabrics. Their single piece design allows them to run under the lugs and along the bottom of the case, making direct contact with the wearer's skin. Sean Connery brought fabric straps into the mainstream in his role as James Bond.
Our most popular fabric watches especially for kids are from Flik Flak a sub-brand of the famous swiss manufacturer Swatch.
What are NATO and Zulu straps?
NATO and Zulu straps are two types of popular fabric straps. The former gets its name from the NATO organisation, inasmuch as the UK military issued this particular strap design to NATO personnel more than 40 years ago. NATO straps are designed to be quite durable. They are resistant to weather extremes, rips and tears, etc.
A Zulu strap is a NATO strap made to be a bit stronger. It typically features more resistant materials and may include an extra ring to keep the excess fabric secured in place.
Are fabric straps durable?
A well-made fabric strap is a durable strap. Fabric straps do not tend to be bothered by water, making them ideal for dive watches. They are also minimally affected by temperature extremes, sunlight, and other environmental variables.
