Nice strap, and really looks good on my LONGINES.
Incredible quality straps and amazing customer service. I highly recommend this company and will be a repeat customer.
Definite upgrade over the strap that came with the watch. More comfortable, more flexible. Great upgrade.
Great strap will buy more!
AlphaShark- Admiralty band completes my Seiko. It is a Fantastic product . Well made and very comfortable!
It's a very well made strap, the quality and fitment is excellent. My only issue is that it is much thicker than I expected, causing my watch to sit very high on the wrist even for a NATO. I might try a thinner one or perhaps a two-piece, still; very high quality.
Nice quality band, but the color is deferent than what’s pictured on the website. It’s a very light grey, almost silver.
The COVID strap. Ever wonder what an Alpha NATO from BluShark would look like after non-stop EDC wear from Nov 2019-Jan 2021? Here you go! Amazing strap, grey is my favorite along with retro Bond. I’ve had this strap since Sept 2017, and it’s been the “COVID strap” and worn for >421 days straight.... frayed, but plenty of life. Time to get another.
My favorite nato strap! Super comfortable and soft.
This strap is amazing! Compliments my blue SMP 300m perfectly.
The NATO watchband is a quality product. I have purchased before, and will continue to purchase. My first and only choice when I'm looking for a quality watchband.
thicck and comfy material is superb hope it hold up to the use!
Great texture and colour shade. Hardware is high quality, as it is usual for AlphaShark and AlphaPremier straps. As I expected, it works well with multiple watches.
Quality strap that’s silky soft. Length is just right unlike other brands that tend to be short such that you have nothing left to tuck in.
Good quality and I really like this color on the ray 2
Great quality and looks great!
I plan on purchasing several other straps.
Stout weave, with sturdy fittings, with a great smooth feel.
The best. E ho detto tutto!
Unfortunately, after one pass the alpha strap frayed. Here it is after one pass next to my one year regular blushark. I bought another alphashark and it frayed too.
Wonderful strap. I bought it with the b lack PVD fittings & its very sharp. I want to buy the black 22mm strap/ black PVD as well, but the web site says its out of stock!!

Strapped this on my everyday watch. Quality is superb , not only the strap but the hardware as well. And btw, I'm from Argentina. Last year I tried getting 2 of these and something happened, not with the shipment but with our post office , well short story is I couldn't get them. This time they arrived in 2 weeks at my work place, so for any of you in Argentina doubting in getting these because of the shipping, don't worry about that any more .
I’ve quickly become a fan. Order 7 and counting.
I love the color on this strap. It is very high quality and it makes my watch look significantly better.
The strap material is great as always, however my biggest disappointment is the colour. It definitely is NOT admiralty grey. It's a lighter general grey, but I was hoping for something a little more true to colour. Very similar colouring to their other grey straps. Good strap if you want the generic grey though!
Not admiralty grey.
Horrible customer service.
The quality of the strap is fantastic, but the color is pretty lousy. This is sold as an “Admiralty” grey strap. It is definitely not that. It is nowhere near the color of an authentic Phoenix Admiralty grey nato strap. It is very much a light grey. It looks like I’ll be trying Phenomenato and see if that’s any darker.
Love the Admiralty Grey with my Aquaracer. Very pleased. Will order many more.
Excellent straps! Happy with the purchase and will be buying more.
Like it... would buy again
These are the only NATO straps I will use on my watches. The admiralty grey gives the perfect look to the MKII MILSUB.
Received shipment for five straps which were all great as expected, except for this one. Got sent a powder blue coloured one instead of the admiralty grey as ordered. I’ve been in communication with Kristine via email but the situation has yet to be resolved. Thanks so much, Joseph
Great quality. Perfect match with my Sinn EZM3
Good quality and I recommend this product.
The picture says it all

The color, texture, fix and the look is perfect. Definitely upgrades my watch and makes it more sophisticated. I bought three more Alphasharks immediately and I can’t wait to receive the bond, khaki and navy straps to match my other watches.
This admiral grey is absolutely stunning & goes with just about any SS or titanium watch! Gives my watch a totally different look! Hands down the most comfortable Nato’s With the best quality strap material & hardware! Thanx Blu Shark for making such awesome Nato Straps!
After I purchased my first strap I was so impressed with it I ordered this the next day.
This is the 2nd time I’ve ordered from BluShark & for good reason! Honestly the best quality NATO straps I’ve come across. Tried many others, but these from BluShark are simply the best.. Do yourself a favour & take my advice! Number One in the Market!
Thanks Joe, love this strap for my beloved skx 007 now thinking getting 20mm strap for my other watch

Love the sporty PVD black AlphaShark Admiralty Gray - suits my Longines Monopusher Chronograph well, 1.4mm slightly too thick for my liking, but its definitely gorgeous, looking forward to buy the original Blushark which is thinner,
Very high quality NATO straps! Makes my watches stand out even more! Love it!
This strap was as advertised.
Paired the AlphaShark Admiralty Grey with my speedie pro - looks great and the fit and comfort are spot on. Quality is up there as expected. Thanks!
Excellent quality!! Will buy many more for sure!
Great straps and hardware. The colors are very rich and the straps are soft but sturdy. Not sure why anyone spends more on more expensive straps.
Still love it, included the strap picture for comparison with original strap.
This is my first purchased strap (along with a navy blue strap) for my watch. The material is very comfortable on the wrist, even in hot and humid weather, and the hardware is top notch (I do enjoy the small Blushark logo on the buckle). The brushed silver matches very well with the watch case as well.
Great quality, looks even better!
The Alpha is the highest quality Nato you can get. The Admiralty Gray is classy, and goes with most watches. The feel is fantastic. It's far better than the Original, which is also good.....but this is far and away better.
Lovely strap! Suits almost everything. I use this one for my Seiko SKX007, SRPB09 blue lagoon, and SSC607! I better bought three pieces at once..
Really great strap, quality feel and finish, the gray/silver color pairs well with several watch dials. This particular strap is thicker than the typical NATO and may not fit all watches properly. I have mine on a Hamilton Navy pioneer, love it. Also, great look for summer.
My first Nato, love it! It is a little tight using the original springbars for the Sinn 656 but it works. A little stiffer than the alphashark slim but I like the square holes better.
First, I love the fact that BluShark is a Veteran Owned Business as I'm a Veteran as well. Also, I've bought some NATO straps from various other places (that are well regarded), and not any of them come close to the quality, beauty and comfort of the AlphaShark straps. Will definitely buy more!
Best Nato I ever buy. Really amazing quality and fast delivery to Germany. Thank you BluShark.
Really nice, smooth, and adequately thick NATO strap. The best one I every use.
Removed the second flap and shorten it for perfect fit. Amazing fit with Airman.
Love the AlphaShark, very soft and comfortable. Wears very well.
This is the best Nato strap I have bought to date. Put it on my Steinhart and wearing it to Cuba tomorrow.

Good colour match my Seiko sumo comfortable & soft nice to wear.
Great products ans amazing service! My order was lost by UPS and BluShark shipped another one as soon as possible. Thanks!
I purchased the grey AlphaShark strap to go with the Seiko SKX009. A grey nato on this watch is very common but it really is a classic combination. The AlphaShark strap is the best I've ever had. The quality of the weave allows the of the strap to be very durable yet flexible and comfortable strap. I have 4 AlphaShark straps now, it's the only Nato brand I'll buy.
Another great strap from BluShark. The PVD hardware goes well with my Seiko SRPC49 and the strap /like all the AlphaSharks is very comfortable to wear all day. The Admiralty Grey is perfect shade of grey.
By far the best nato style strap I’ve owned. The nylon is thick and soft.
Only one of the three straps I ordered was as illustrated, the other two didn’t have stitching between the keepers enabling the second keeper to slide along the strap.
Defintely a higher quality than I expected! Would highly recommend the straps to anyone looking for something different, with great presence!
Good quality overall with good hardware which feels solid and well finished. Strap is tightly woven together, looks great and shiny but doesn't breathe as well. Anyway! Great strap overall.
The material of the strap is quite good and comfortable (even in hot climates) but I am already noticing some fraying on the edges of the strap. My main concern is that one of the straps, specifically the 20mm admirality grey, had one of the the keepers crooked and the hardware was tight to move
A very high quality nylon weave (seatbelt), heavy duty buckle and hardware, nice shade of grey. These have become my go to NATO straps and I am not going back to the cheap nato's ever !!
Really great nylon and stitching, big and bold metalware. Be aware and choose brushed finish, looks like millions
Incredible straps, worth every penny, also very fast shipping to Europe.
Love the ability to move the second keeper!
The stitching around the bottom keeper was not straight meaning the keeper sits at an angle. The material is so thick you can’t create a tucked in loop. General size and nylon quality good. 3 week delivery with no expedite option was terrible.
Great strap, quality materials and finish.
This is an excellent premium strap. The good: the material is perfect. Thick, substantial weave. Not as slick and smooth as some others (in a good way). No ridges poking into your wrist and the square holes are a nice touch. The hardware is amazing. I like the brushed finish in particular. It's chunky and smooth, very comfortable and the buckle sits flush with your wrist (again, no poking). The bad: The thickness makes that your watch may sit a little high for your taste, and fitting might be tight. Verdict: awesome strap, well worth the price. It's my most worn strap right now.
The strap is really awesome. This is the thickest NATO I have ever owned. It also fits very good even to my 23mm lug watch.
I tend to shy away from Nato straps since most of them are flimsy with poor stitching that irritates the skin. After reading some positive reviews I went ahead and purchased the AlphaShark strap. What a difference. A strap that's super soft and comes in a variety of vibrant colors with top notch hardware and no crappy stitching. Well worth the cost especially if you do buy two and get one for "free." Great product with excellent customer service.
Really great quality; best Nato I've come across. Purchased for my Steinhart OVM, and it fits like a dream. Very quick international shipping. Highly recommended product and vendor!
Wow, I love this strap! It looks fantastic on an SKX007. I went polished hardware to dress it up but you can honestly go either way depending on if you want to dress it up or down. I plan on getting one in brushed so I can have it both ways. The strap is very comfortable to wear daily. It's built tough. I wore it on vacation to Hawaii and it held up great to the daily ocean and pool use. And at this price point I think it's a steal for how nice it is. From the premium hardware to the Alpha strap, you can't go wrong buying one.
Its a very high quality product from the nylon fabric and stitching to the buckle and other hardware. The problem I had was when I inserted the nylon strap between the case and lug. The nylon strands loosened and came off the fabric weave at the rectangular holes. Looks like the finishing around the rectangular holes should be improved. It appears that the subject Alphashark strap is a thicker fabric than my other(Alphashark) strap. Notified your store and they promised to replace it.
Looks great on my Seamaster
Very thick NATO. Could not use. Won't be buying any more of your straps.
I got hit with an additional £20.67 fee for getting this item through UK customs so although the straps are great I wouldn't purchase anymore direct from the US
This is what all NATO straps should be. Unfortunately that is not true and you get the poor quality from other when you pay less. Why not pay a little more and get one you really like and performs like you expect. Life is too short to smoke bad cigars or wear shoddy watch straps. Kevin Martin
Best NATO strap ever!
Feeling disappointed. After reading lots of praises three Alphasharks. Strap was fraying out of the box. Considering how difficult it is to bend and to insert into the last ring, i'm pretty sure it will fray even more. Also it turns out that there are no photos anywhere that would show the real thickness of the strap. It makes your watch look like it's "levitating" on your hand. Nylon and buckle quality are superb, though. Shiny, pretty, etc.
It is a fantastic quality! Where it really excels is the holes are square. I find that when they are round they always stretch out!
Love these straps and service! I ordered 3 to start. Looking forward to the expanding product line.
Love the feeling of the grey alpha shark! It's thicker than my other natos and is insanely comfortable! It is the perfect pairing with my Seamaster! The only down side is that it makes the rest of my NATO straps feel cheap lol! Will be purchasing different colors in the future!
Love new less-curvy buckle on these straps. IMO these buckles with the keepers from the Orca would make the perfect combo.
