Luxe NATO straps

 trens montres 09

After the Second World War the NATO strap became a requisite for military watches. In 2016 its casual style turns every timepiece into an edgy accessory.


The icon ventures into new territory with this strap in patent calfskin and nylon. The J12-G10 watch goes all out on pure white, its case in hi-tech ceramic and steel housing a high-precision quartz movement showing the hours, minutes, seconds and date.



Blancpain’s sports watch is winning new fans all the time, this year further honing its charms and adopting the 1315 calibre with a 120hr power reserve. The ceramic case, water-resistant to 300m, and one-way bezel look stunning on this ultra-tough sail-canvas strap.

As the Tour Auto’s official timekeeper, Zenith has brought out the El Primero Chronomaster Tour Auto Edition affording a close-up of the beating heart of that legendary movement. This tribute to classic cars looks splendid in slate grey decorated with tricolour lines.
