NATO belt – the story behind the name

NATO strap fits with every branded watch. Purists may have a hard time pairing the ultra-luxurious Royal Oak with a plastic bracelet, but otherwise, these sane old things are gold.

What makes things even more interesting is that the NATO belt is inherently fun and functional at the same time.

There is a long history associated with the NATO belt. You may be wondering that the "NATO" in the NATO belt refers to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, right? not true. There is no connection between the two. The term NATO originated as a shortened form of the NATO or NSN number.

The technically correct name for the NATO line is G10 or G1098. You see, in 1973 "Bracelet, watch" appeared on the British Ministry of Defense (DefStan) standard 66-15. It's also different in the sense that it doesn't have any under-over combos that recruiters would believe.
