    Looking for seatbelt NATO in Admiralty Grey

    Does anyone know if this exists in 22mm? Where?

    Thanks.

    All the major 'seatbelt' strap suppliers have a gray strap available.

    (In alphabetical order:) BluShark AlphaShark, CincyStrapWorks "SB", Crown and Buckle Supreme, PhenomeNato, Toxic Shiznit and WatchGecko all have something that is gray.

    Whether it's the exact 'admiralty' gray that you're looking for is a question, as there are some shade variations. Not knowing what the 'official' admiralty gray actually is, I can't really say which is 'correct' (though I have read some discussion amongst model builders trying to match gray paint, and it seems like there's some issues there too...)

    There are also some differences in the fabric weave (see reviews in signature for comparisons), hardware options, and price as well.

    Having straps from all these guys, I have no complaints about the strap quality, and have a really hard time going back to a standard NATO strap after wearing one of them. However, the minor differences between the different strap offerings (thickness, size of buckles, etc) in my mind makes each strap slightly better or worse suited for different size and shapes of watches, so that might be something to keep in mind in your decision as well.

    Thanks. I had a Phoenix Admiralty Grey that was the perfect color. It was a terrible strap however. I am looking for the same color, but something much better. The Toxic looks about right, just in brushed hardware.

    I've never seen any other strap maker match Phoenix's admiralty grey perfectly, but then again, even their color differs a bit from batch to batch. The seat belt style nylon has a completely different weave and most have a bit of sheen to them, whereas the Phoenix straps are much more matte. So I think even if the "color" is right, a seat belt version is not going to match an authentic Phoenix admiralty grey strap all that well.

    Thanks. When I say anything looks about right in color, please take it with a grain of salt. I am color blind ☺. But, I do like the color of the Admiralty Grey... as it looks to me. The search continues...
