Maratac™ did it again. They took the U.S. Government specifications watchbands and then made them better. Maratac™ made these new bands better and stronger than U.S. Military spec # MIL-S-46383. Maratac™ used their ultrasonic drilling process to cut perfect holes that eliminate rough spots around the holes. These new Maratac™ Mil Series bands feature non-magnetic stainless steel buckles that have been coated with mil spec black phosphate to eliminate possible reflection. How could it get better? Maratac™ added more colors and larger selection of sizes than Uncle Sam ever thought of.
Overall length (includes buckle) 10.25"-11" Depending on model
Found these bands by accident. Have 4 Chronosport UDTs that needed bands. When I received them, I laid them out next to a original band. They look almost exact and fit perfectly. Was told by my Chronosport service person that there have been no replacements for years. Told him about them for all of his other customers. Great bands!
My G Shock of ~20 years bezel finally gave up the ghost, plastic cracked and began falling off it, so I pulled the screws out of it and also removed both sides of the watch band. I was very surprised to see how small the opening was for the band.
I needed a 16mm band to hold me over while waiting for the replacement bezel and band to be released. The watch has never let me down and your band is keeping it in the game. It works great.
These are my favorite nylon straps. The webbing is substantial. The hardware is well machined and sturdy...no cheap clasp here.
On the flip side, the straps don’t veer off into vanity features either. There’s nothing here that would look out of place with any other piece of mil equipment. Just good materials made well into traditional military designs.
