    NATO / Zulu template and/or dimensions?

    Trying to get a "make a watch strap" project class together for a makerspace ... Looking for NATO / Zulu strap templates, dimensions, or laser cut files. I think I have worn Google out trying various keyword combos...

    Thanks!

    Bump...

    Seriously? Nobody? Is it just a matter of buying some and measuring them?

    I probably don't properly appreciate your question, but is this not as simple as cutting a piece of fabric at the required width (e.g. 20mm) and length to fit your wrist. And then decide how closely to punch the holes for the prong? At least for the Zulu style strap.

    Or maybe you are more concerned about the shorter part of a Nato versus its longer section, or how to best space the double keeper. I have a few Nato/Zulu from different companies and they all vary a little so I don't think there is a universal standard around the spacing.

    It's easy just cut a strip parallel to the width of your lugs on the watch you are making the strap for and according to the hardware you have at hand.

    Yes, part of it is the shorter part of the NATO strap. And the buckle hole spacing. And the spacing for the keepers. Sure, I could work it all out but a pattern is a good starting point.

    Thanks!
