Today I received a new watchband in the mail. The ZOVNE Watch Band is a one-piece nato-style strap, made from a nylon seat belt-like material. It’s very comfortable and I think the weave pattern looks sharp. I got the black with grey edging which matches nicely with the lumed hour markers on the Seiko SKX007. The brushed metal hardware also nicely matches the case of the Seiko.
Besides being extremely comfortable, the durable seat belt material is thin and folds relatively sharply so the loop-back which is common to nato straps doesn’t look bulky at all. I was planning on trimming the strap and not looping it back under the stay, but it’s thin enough where it’s almost unnoticeable.
I like the look of my older Zulu strap, with its large hardware, but the canvas material lost its softness and it’s now uncomfortable to wear for long. I’m happy to switch over to the seat belt material, though. It’s a great combination of style and comfort. Recommended!
