The Benchmark Basics Crazy Horse Leather One-Piece Military Watch Band

The military-inspired Crazy Horse Oiled One Piece Leather Watch Band is the perfect balance between a traditional leather watch band and a casual nylon strap. Its versatility complements almost any watch, from divers to dress and field watches. At 1.4mm thick, the Benchmark Leather Strap is thin enough to easily slip between spring bars but feels substantial on the wrist to balance out the weight of your watch. Pick it up in multiple colors and swap straps to match any occasion.

  • Material: Crazy Horse Oiled Cowhide Leather | 1.4mm (4oz) thick
  • Hardware: Polished Silver or Brushed Black PVD Stainless-Steel
  • Widths: 18mm, 20mm, 22mm or 24mm
  • Length: 11.2” (285mm) with 10 holes | Adjustable for 6.25” - 8.5” wrists
  • Features: Slip-through style, pull-up leather

Patina-Ready Crazy Horse Leather

Crafted from high-quality cowhide, the band will develop a rich patina with wear. Infused with waxes and oils to create unique shading variations and a pull-up effect as the leather is manipulated. Light shades like Sand will develop a deeper patina faster than dark colors. The pull-up will also be less pronounced in dark colors.

High Quality Construction

The single layer, unlined leather construction is comfortable for all-day wear. A solid stainless-steel buckle and 3 keeper loops are available in your choice of polished silver or matte black finishes. Stitched with durable bonded nylon thread with heat sealed ends to prevent fraying.

One Piece Slip-Through Design

Swap straps in seconds without the need for special tools. Easily change pass-through watchbands without tools by passing it between spring bars at the top and bottom of your watch. Unlike two-piece bands where the release of a spring bar results in your watch falling to the ground, a one-piece band secures your watch to each pin independently. Extra-long by design so you can tuck excess length back under the keeper loops for a casual look.

Features
  • Crazy Horse Leather – Oil-tanned pull-up leather is infused with waxes and oils to give each band unique shading variations. The leather will soften over time and develop a rich patina with wear.

  • Stainless-Steel Hardware – Each strap is fitted with a polished stainless-steel buckle and keeper loops that visually balance your watch while securing it to your wrist.
  • Colors to Complement Your Watch – Our NATO watchband comes in 8 rich colors: Black, Dark Brown, Dark Green, Dark Grey, Navy Blue, Oxblood, Sand & Tan.
  • Perfect Fit – Available in 18mm, 20mm, 22mm & 24mm widths, our NATO bands will stretch and flex to conform to your wrist. Refer to the measurements graphic for more detailed dimensions.

      These straps far exceeded my expectations

      I love it when I take a swing on a product online and end up pleasantly surprised. These leather NATOs really delivered in that regard.I picked up the Oxblood and Dark Green colorways. The Oxblood, in particular, is an absolutely beautiful color. I wish the Dark Green was a little "more green" and a little less muted, but I still enjoy it. Overall they really do look great. The leather also impressed me. It looks, feels, and smells the part, though it has a good deal of stretch and I don't think it is full grain. The stretch, incidentally, gives it a pretty weightless and comfortable feel on the wrist. At this price point, the fake stuff that is bonded to nylon webbing wouldn't have surprised me, so again kudos on that.While I think these straps are a 5-star value, I don't think they are a 5-star product overall. They do have some issues.First is the overall fit and adjustment. The strap is a bit shorter than a standard NATO, which is awkward because NATOs are supposed to be long, and you fold excess tag end back in on itself. When I wear this strap I am on the second-to-tightest adjustment hole, and there is too much tag end left to just let it stick out, but there is just barely enough to fold it over. It's kinda awkward to deal with. For the record, I have a pretty average 7.25" wrist. If your wrist is under 7.00" you might need to look elsewhere unless you are willing to punch some more holes in this thing.My only other complaint is hardware finish options. The polished finish looks great, but I would've preferred a brushed option (for my particular watches). Some more options would be awesome.At the end off the day I'm pretty happy with how much I spent for what are two great looking straps. Will definitely be checking out more of the Benchmark Basics catalog.

      It missed the mark for me personally.

      I got this leather NATO strap in black. The thickness is right at the point where I would consider it a quality strap of leather for this particular purpose (until it stretches). It has a nice deep black to it and the hardware seems nicely coated in matte black with nicely low profile. And it has somewhat of a nubuck feel to it.Using this strap for NATO purposes however gives me pause. This leather doesn't want to bend and articulate the way that a typical nylon strap does, this presents a few problems. It always looks like I didn't put it on properly in the spaces under the watch lugs and it doesn't want to bend over backwards to go back into the last loop (because NATO tails are always longer than necessary). The low profile of the hardware keepers also don't want to allow a 3rd thickness of leather inside of them, this is compounded by the fact that nubuck against nubuck has alot of friction. I don't think I can force that tail in, and if I could, I don't want to do this every day (much less crease fine leather).If your watch case comes down to a perfect cylinder the strap will scuff in the middle as you slide it up the strap (even though most manufacturers know well enough to taper in the case between the lugs).Basically this band just doesn't serve me any purpose in my collection. If you hate the feeling of nylon or silicone against your wrist and you feel confident enough in your skills to cut the tail yourself and you don't critique the visuals of the wear, maybe it can be great for you. But not for me.

      Rugged classy

      Worn twice now for international travel - very classy dressed up or as normal. Four star rating intentional to be updated when worn a few more times.

      Too early to tell

      The quality seems to be good. The stitching is well done and the hardware looks durable.The only concern I have is the thickness of the leather. It strikes me as thin. We'll see if the holes hold up over time.

      Have been using this for a few months on my Vostok, and it is comfortable and stylish.
