WE MANUFACTURE FAITHFUL REPRODUCTIONS OF THE MUCH LOVED A.F.0210. MILITARY WATCH STRAP
The A.F.0210. strap has a unique history, and is very hard to find, with original straps now commanding upwards of £250.
We are now manufacturing and selling faithful reproduction A.F.0210.® straps, primarily because we desired an A.F.0210. strap, and found one almost impossible to find.
A.F.0210. FAITHFUL REPRODUCTIONS
A true slice of history. This is the correct strap for any WW2 and Cold War watch. The A.F.0210. is the canvas webbing strap issued in 1945 at the same time as the 12 brands of W.W.W. watches (nicknamed the Dirty Dozen), and then used on other British military watches.
Virtually indistinguishable from the original issued A.F.0210. strap. (We emboss our buckles to preserve the value of the original strap).
Military functionality. The strap fits fixed bar watches, and is infinitely adjustable and made from a canvas webbing that is both incredibly durable and comfortably soft.

HISTORY OF THE A.F.0210. STRAP
PART OF THE 44 PATTERN WEBBING SET
The A.F.0210. strap was introduced by the MoD for military watches and compasses in 1945, with a stores description A6/AF0210 : STRAP, WRIST, INSTRUMENT, quickly shortened to the AF0210 strap.
The A.F.0210. strap was part of the light weight 1944 pattern (44 pattern) webbing introduced by the MoD in 1945 to overcome the shortcomings of the earlier 37 pattern webbing. This new webbing was designed initially for General Service, but it was introduced as Jungle Warfare Equipment (designated A6/AFxxxx) just as WWII ended.
