Ti-MNPara Strap 20mm - OG OD
During the 1960s, the French Navy combat divers saw a need to securely wear and adjust their dive watches, but did not find anything quite suitable for their needs available at that time. Repurposing elastic nylon strapping from military issue parachute rigging and forming some bits of metal hardware, came up with this (originally handmade) design. PDW built up from this baseline and used the best available nylon with Spandex (far more durable and resilient than generic elastics) strapping, 100% titanium in the rings and clasp for total corrosion resistance on land or under the sea, and 100% non-magnetic as to not interfere with the strap worn compasses such as our EWB-Compass Kit. With the proliferation of rare earth magnets being used in today's bags, wallets, key fobs, and other EDC items, we found that these magnets affected the typical stainless hardware as used in most other types of straps on the market. Not only are rare earth magnets harmful to the internal mechanics of a fine mechanical watch, the magnetized stainless steel hardware affected any compasses used as supporting accessories on a watch strap. Our Ti-MNPara Strap eliminated magnetic interference, offers superior performance, total corrosion resistance and durability in the field.
The color way is perfect for my work watch as my uniform is of green and yellow insignia. The elastic nature of the parachute strap allows me to be active without the watch moving on my wrist which increases comfort dramatically. I wear my watch significantly more now and the strap oozes quality on its fit and finish.J
Nice replacement band for field watches. I like the look of the green with my Hamilton bronze field watch. Also very comfortable once I got the adjustment correct for my wrist.V
Decent strap but probably won't use long. I've used marine national straps since I was a kid, mostly from Erika's in the last several years. This one doesn't slip on, off, or stay on as easy. Comes undone quite regularly for me at work. Too thick next to the clasp and not enough grab. Hard to tell in my picture but it basically pushes it outwardJ
Easily adjustable, Looks amazing, and so far has been very durable, and from what I’ve put it through it dries rather quickly. Love the Titanium Hardware.R
I never seen a strap like this before so I had to give it a try and glad I did. At first is a little confusing how to set it on you watch and how to adjust it (add a guide PDW), after that you will want to have it on your wrist all day, comfortable, extremely light weight and looks sporty with the yellow stripe. I will get the black in the future that’s for sure.
