Simply beautiful Horween leather pull through NATO.

Designed to either pull through in the stitched double thickness OR the strap can be fitted using the top single ply of leather where the watch head sits. Double thickness of the leather is 2.80 and if you use the single ply to fit the watch it is 1.40mm This system makes the strap usable on watches with either a small gap between case and spring bar or watches with a more generous gap.

Bronzed ( Not Bronze) Zulu loops compliment the leather colour and is finished in tan stitch. The strap is already oiled and treated from the manufacturer, all I do is apply a small amount of leather polish and give the strap a quick buff up.

Important :- When ordering please select and measure your wrist size carefully. The tail of the strap should just come past the second loop as its worn, it does not fold back on its self like a standard NATO. The is a generous space to fit the watch head to fit but please also add the Lug - to - Lug of your watch. Measure from the centre of one spring bar, across the watch to the centre of the other.

Due to the nature of my opening and closed catch up schedule, it is impossible for me to stick to a rigid lead time. 

Orders typicaly come through in a three day open phase making it impossible for me to then get all those orders out at a specific lead time.

I try my very best to get goods out within a couple of weeks but enevitably lead times do run over.


At checkout there is a tick box. Ticking this box means you have read and understood this lead time.  


Depending on what is in front of your order this lead time may fluctuate either way a little so please be aware of this when placing an order. 

Please also note,  for all GGB BESPOKE goods the green IN STOCK tick only means I have materials to make up your order.


When I have reached capacity and to reduce backlogs I will close off orders to all bespoke made goods but you will then have the option to be notified when I 're-stock'


Lead time does not affect 'off the shelf' items such as Phoenix NATO's and tooling which will go at the next postal run from order date   

Emails : I get a lot of emails which I struggle to keep on top of sometimes. I do try and answer in a timely manner but please give me a nudge again if I do not respond within a few days.

Wrist measuring guide
When measuring the wrist for your wrist size it is important to get this as accurate as you can to help save any issues with fit.

Please measure the wrist with the tape measure touching all the way around the wrist but not pulled too tightly.

Please do not be tempted to add any to the finished length. I build the straps around a metal wrist/Jig that I set to the wrist size you give me.

Lug-to-Lug explained

Simply measure from the centre of one spring bar or tube, across the watch (north to south) to the centre of the other spring bar or tube. This is your Lug-to-Lug measurement.

Strap Adjustment

Each gasgasbones strap is made to your wrist size. I incorporate around 10-15mm of adjustment in each strap for use between warmer and cooler days.
