The 6B/2617 was the first nylon NATO strap issued in 1954 for the Mk11 navigator watch, the 6B/346.
The next evolution of nylon straps was the RAF style pull through strap as shown on the Rolex Submariner ref 6538 watch of James Bond in Goldfinger in 1963, a 16mm wide nylon strap in the colours of the Royal Scots Regiment at the time. (The 9 stripe colour scheme is dark oxford blue, peony red and gosling green).
We are now manufacturing and selling the earliest probable version of this RAF strap in the original grey 8 ribbed nylon webbing used for the 6B/2617 strap.
These straps are now available for immediate purchase, and delivery.
