Marine Nationale Divers Strap

56 EUR
Original MN™Straps are made from new olive green elastic webbing as found on Marine Nationale parachutes from the 1970's. They are available for 20, 21 and 22 mm. The MN™Strap is made from nylon wound and woven natural rubber that regulates moisture, adjusts to your wrist effortlessly and is widely considered the most comfortable all-season watch strap available. All MN™Straps are double saddle stitched by hand with the finest French linen. 

The French navy - the Marine Nationale - has been long known for the outstanding watches they issued to their combat- and on board divers. Among these are divers watches from Tudor, Doxa, Triton and Z.R.C. Since these watches were delivered 'head only' to the French Marine Nationale, their divers used a variety of watch straps on them. Some of the divers used the, now famous, elastic webbing found on their parachutes to make a single loop watch strap for their own watch.
