Zulu Four Buckle Watch Straps by Maratac ~
We are both proud and excited to now carry Maratac™ brand Zulu® watch straps. These straps are everything we could want in a watch strap for use in a high stakes environment. The nylon is both soft but firm with laser burnt holes leaving no nasty burrs to irritate your wrist or wear on your wet suit. The buckles are made from brushed high grade 316L Stainless Steel that has extremely low (if any) magnetic properties making these straps ideal for use with your dive compass as well as your watch. These bands are a one-piece design that weaves through your watch for maximum watch security during wet operations or just around town. King Neptune has enough watches. He doesn't need yours too. We would gladly put these bands up against any other band on the market as the most rugged and secure available. Solid and robust with no frills.
Just In: Maratac™ Zulu® 4 buckle bands. These bands have an additional set of rings that prevent any possibility of your watch moving on the band. These bands also are available with Darkened "Low-Lite" finished 316L Stainless Steel hardware or simple brushed 316L Stainless finish.
(Note: 20mm Fits SARs and Marathon Navigators and many civilian watches, but you should measure to be sure)
(Note: 22mm Fits Most Luminox and Seiko Dive watches, but you should measure to be sure)
To be clear, the rubber band is excellent. Where I had and issue was the weight of that watch caused a frequent pulling at the hair on my wrist which was distracting and always made it feel like the watch wasn't comfortable. It also tapers from 22mm to 18mm which reduces the surface area and increases the problem. The Zulu band eliminated the grab of the rubber and immediately stopped me from being constantly aware of the watch. I use a Zulu band because I work at elevation. A dropped watch due to a broken spring bar or buckle/clasp is, at best, a destroyed watch. Where the NATO has the spring bar redundancy, using the D-rings on the Zulu like a motorcycle helmet buckle add redundancy to the buckle as well.
Mike at CountyComm went far and above normal to make my purchase seamless and enjoyable. After making the order, I wanted to change something and emailed the owner. He made it even better than I could have anticipated... thank you !!
I wanted a Zulu band to swap out with the stainless band that came with the Seiko Orange Monster my late father gave to me. I bought an Orange and also a Black band and they are both super comfortable, durable and fit perfectly to secure my watch in case one of the pins fail. Recommended.
A watch and that fits! My husband has very large wrists, 10 inches. I had bought him a new watch and unfortunately even their extra long band was too short. I did have to buy new posts because the watch had a quick release posts on the band. It would be great if you had that option although, I will admit, that the posts were very easy to pop on. Thanks for your customer support and advice. The band came quickly and it looks great.
These are simply the best. The strap looks like it will be bulky with the extra rings but that is not the case at all. The rings are so smooth and light that you don't even notice them. The buckle locks up tight. What really shines is the fabric. I've got lots of Nato, or more recently Nato want to be, straps and the Maratac fabric cannot be beat. Soft and flexible enough to be comfortable while amazingly strong. Don't hesitate if you are thinking about adding several of these straps to your collection. They do not disappoint. Both the low light and brushed look AWESOME!
