The 6B/2617 was the first nylon NATO strap issued in 1954 for the RAF Mk11 navigator watch, the 6B/346.     6B/xxx was the stores code for RAF equipment.

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.   This was 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.

We launched these on Kickstarter, in 16mm, 18mm and 20mm wide versions, and these all were fully funded in one day.

These straps are now available for immediate purchase, and delivery.
