Apple watch not included. This listing is for a strap set that has the Apple Watch hardware adapter built in. Please choose the correct adapter size for your Apple Watch. See back of Apple Watch for 38mm or 42mm or 44mm case size. The 42mm and 44mm case use the same size adapter.

Returns Policy

All sales are final for our Apple NATO watch strap. 

UPDATE: Our previous Apple Adapters have had a few failures. We've since updated which Apple Watch adapter we use to a classic spring bar system. Your order will ship with a spring bar tool that you'll want to keep. Please note that we use a very thick leather strap and installing the spring bars is difficult. You are responsible for re-installation, should you remove the spring bar and be unable to install it. 

We guarantee a working Apple NATO watch strap on arrival. We do have replacement adapters available for sale, should the Apple adapter fail at a future date.

Standard Leather Apple Watch NATO Strap

We currently offer these straps in a dark brown or black leather with silver and black hardware color.
