    design nato straps in 2 piece?

    i produced a collection of design nato straps and some smartwatch users would like to see 2 piece version so that it wont block the sensors.
    is there a market for 2piece natos for traditional watch lover? might go ahead and do it if there's enough pple looking for these.

    Ivan,
    Not everyone likes the 1 piece straps. Two piece straps look and feel better with my watches on my wrist. I have a few, in solid colors only, and would welcome some new patterns.....Having then a little thicker than the 1 piece would be great.

    Thanks and congratulations on your endeavor.

    I prefer the two-piece to the single Nato band.

    Re: design nato straps in 2 piece?

    At that point, what are you thinking to carry over? The short understrap goes away. The 3rd loo at the end of the understrap goes away. So, you're talking nylon, with a pair of metal keepers, and probably usually in super extra long with the tail tucked into the lower keeper?


    I have no issue with the nylon; I don't necessarily mind metal keepers, but prefer the RAF style, with a single nylon keeper, usually matching the strap. (One could do a contrast color...I've just never seen that.) And I MUCH prefer to remove the secondary length, not tuck it back under. Especially on a 2 piece strap. Also: I really, REALLY dislike the Zulu hoop-like keepers; IMO they look awful. Much too intrusive, visually, and since they will match the case only by accident...except maybe PVD hardware...they will often look *notably* out of place.
    The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

    I would love to see two piece nylon straps with cool designs!! I already ordered a few of your natos, and I'm excited for them to arrive. I like seeing companies making different patterns than just stripes.

    I am also looking for a nato or two piece nylon strap with bronze hardware and buckle. I have a bronze watch and can never find a nato with bronze.

    thanks jesse,

    would love to do more designs if the collection of 10 can sell well. need more traction. thanks for your support!
    i tend to see zulus with bronze hardware..not so much for natos ya?
    we will likely be running another indiegogo campaign for the 2pc straps.. do take part and get an early bird price.
    will send out newsletters to customers to announce the campaign.
