    New Crown and Buckle Chevron - quick review

    Here's a new strap for you guys to check out if you were not already aware. Crown and Buckle Chevron. I am not affiliated with them in anyway.

    It's a nylon single pass with an adjustable buckle and floating keeper. Meaning you can size it exactly to your preference. Pretty great idea. The feel of the weave and material is like a cross between a NATO and perlon. Very comfortable and flexible. It's a nice weave and very well done. And the tail is stitched no heat sealed to avoid fraying. I suspect they will sell a TON of these. I got one of the last ones on the Cyber Monday sale, but I think they are back in stock this week. This one is Navy and Red, but the weave material is actually black/navy, so it appears pretty dark. It lightens up to a deep navy in sunlight and the red stripe is almost a blood red.







    It's very nice strap overall, although the buckle and hardware is a little bulky under the wrist. You get used to it quickly though, at least I did. I suspect they will be a little short for folks with bigger wrists, but for 6.5-7.5" it'll be just fine. Kind of depends on where you want the hardware to sit. They are only 9" long I think. They have several colors and plans for more. I definitely recommend checking these out.

    From the C&B description:

    Watch strap Details

    Crown & Buckle's exclusive Chevron straps are a game changer. There is nothing on the retail market quite like them. A hybrid between Perlon and NATO straps, Chevron straps are adjustable length, single-pass nylon straps. Key features include a unique alternating nylon weave, precise ultrasonic sizing holes, a fully stitched tip, and 316L hardware finished to a high degree.

    This Chevron colorway has a "navy" base color of alternating black and navy threads, with a bold center stripe in red. 20mm and 22mm widths, Brushed and Polished hardware options.

    Unique nylon weave: Each strap's base color has two alternating threads that are slightly contrasted for depth. The two threads are woven at differing height and thickness, creating a three dimensional, diagonal effect in the weave. For the colorways with a center stripe, the stripe is woven with thicker thread and in a straight vertical pattern. The colored stripe thus further stands out from the main diagonal weave. The nylon is finished with precision: five ultrasonically cut & sealed sizing holes hold up to wear, and the fully stitched end tip prevents fraying (one of the toughest steps of production!).

    Killer hardware: The angular keepers are inspired by our Supreme NATOs, now 0.3mm wider and with new height specs tailored for a single layer strap. The adjustable ladder buckle and tongue is CNC machined from solid 316L SS. The buckle has a natural curvature for comfortable wear. The Brushed hardware option has brushed top surfaces, with high-polished sides and facets. The Polished hardware option has high-polished top surfaces, and matte brushed sides and facets. This is a subtle detail, the high degree of finishing on each piece of metal is really a sight to behold!

    Utmost comfort: As an adjustable single-pass strap, the Chevron wears wonderfully. Being a one-piece strap, it offers protection against the watch falling if one spring bar fails. However, it does not raise the watch off the wrist as much as a NATO strap, and the buckle is centered underneath your wrist. With the length adjusted perfectly via the ladder buckle, there is no bulky strap "tail" to fold backwards or deal with. Simply tuck the end of the strap into the sliding keeper, and enjoy your Chevron strap.

    OP, what is the size of your wrist? That would really help me evaluate, as the C&B perlon straps just barely fit me. Thanks.

    6.75" or a hair over.

    These are longer than the Perlon straps are. They are over 10" long adjusted to the max length. They should fit up to an 8.5" wrist, give or take.

    OP: Thanks for sharing! Just to clarify, the tips are heat sealed first, then stitched/sewn to further protect them from fraying. Enjoy the strap!
