"Mil Vibrant Series" Bands by Maratac ~
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"
I've got at least five of them over the years from here. Two of a different style but basically the same. Security for a good watch if you lose a watch pin you don't loose the watch. A big reason I still have my Citizen watch I lost a pin Scuba diving years ago but not the watch due to having replaced the OEM band. Now a small problem could be the band don't give if snagged on something. I've got two of my watches mounted on the bands I got from Country Comm. My Citizen and Omega watches.
Got two of these Mil series straps with Maratac Pilot and Mid Pilot watches of the past, in standard issue black. These colors add some fun to the mix for a great summer or casual vibe. At the sale price it's a no-brainer given the quality. Just wish the burgundy was available in 20mm but by the time I scored my Mid Pilot they were all out of stock. Another piece of great gear by CountyComm! Attached is a teaser of my Glycine Combat Sub on the 22mm Burgundy.
These 2 bands were on sale for about $6 each, so I couldn't resist. I imagine that the colors (solid burgundy and solid orange) don't move that quickly (hence the price) but the burgundy matches the color on my Orient Triton power reserve and the orange pairs well with my Damasko DC66. Quality is good. The hardware is basic but well made.
I got this for my X1 SR35. This band makes the orange accents of this watch POP. County Comm/Maratac honestly make some of the best bands on the market and they do it at an affordable price point. I highly recommend this or any strap from County Comm/Maratac .
Nobody does it better..best quality straps anywhere. The only downside is the limited color selection.
