BARTON’s Ballistic Nylon Military Style watch bands are custom designed and fabricated to meet the highest standard of fashion, function and fit. Swap your bands in seconds to compliment your daily wardrobe.
Straps are available in 18mm, 20mm, 22mm and 24mm widths. To determine the proper width for your watch, use a metric ruler to measure the ‘lug width’ (the point on the watch head where the band attaches). Lug widths for most common watches are also available from the manufacturer online.
Selecting and Adjusting Length:
All widths (18mm, 20mm or 22mm) of our original ‘Standard’ length band measure approximately 10-inches in total length and fit wrists from 5″ to 7 1/2″ in circumference. All widths (20mm, 22mm and 24mm) of our ‘Long’ version measure 11-inches in total length and fit wrists from 6″ to 8 1/2″. However, watch size and geometry also impacts fit. Those with larger wrists (above 7 1/4″) typically prefer the ‘long’ version. If band is longer than desired, fold free end neatly back into the keeper loop or cut to desired length. If trimmed, expose cut end to match or lighter flame to avoid fraying.
Attaching the Band:
Refer to diagram in picture above. First, remove original band and reinsert spring bars into watch head. Then, simply feed strap between the spring bar and watch casing, behind watch head and up through the other spring bar. Run through stainless steel ring on short strap to secure watch head. No need to remove spring bars (pins) to swap between different colors.
SELECT PROPER WIDTH: Available in 18mm, 20mm, 22mm and 24mm widths to fit thousands of watch models. To determine proper width for your watch, use a metric ruler to measure the lug width or the width of the current band at the point where it attaches. If your watch has an odd lug width (19mm, 21mm or 23mm), we recommend going with the strap 1mm larger than measured. The material is soft and should squeeze in nicely.
LENGTH SELECTION GUIDELINES: ‘Standard’ length (available in 18mm, 20mm and 22mm widths) measures approximately 10-inches and fits wrists from 5″ to 7 1/2″ in circumference. ‘Long’ version (available in 20mm, 22mm and 24mm widths) measures approximately 11-inches and fits wrists from 6″ to 8 1/2″. Those with larger wrists (above 7 1/4″) typically prefer the ‘Long’ version. Watch geometry will also impact fit.
THE PERFECT BALLISTIC NYLON: Lightweight and breathable, yet very sturdy. Barton bands are typically softer than other nylon watch bands, but have a tighter weave, making them equally or more durable.
LASER CUT, ULTRASONICALLY WELDED, WATER PROOF and WASHABLE: Laser cut to eliminate fraying; Ultrasonic welding combines two pieces of nylon into one homogenous piece forming a stronger bond and cleaner look than stitching.
