Nylon watch bands have been around for more than sixty years, and their popularity is mainly due to their practicality, especially in military settings. However, thanks to modern designs and changing trends, more and more people choose nylon straps for their unique color.
The most prominent benefit of nylon watch bands is durability. This NATO-style watch strap type has fewer moving parts than metal bands, and it is not as susceptible to water damage as leather. If you are looking for a band that can withstand abrasion and harsh conditions, a nylon watch strap is your best bet.
In addition to being durable, nylon bands are highly resistant to general wear. You can wear a nylon watch strap for a lifetime without noticing any signs of deterioration.
Nylon bands are also more comfortable to wear than other bands. This NATO-style watch strap is rugged, yet lightweight and flexible. With a nylon watch strap, you don’t have to worry about skin irritation or abrasion.
One of the reasons nylon bands are so comfortable is because of their breathability, and nylon won’t make you sweat during the warm summer months.
Because of nylon’s strength, it fastens securely around the wrist. You can rest assured that you will never lose your watch, even if you have an active lifestyle. People who enjoy extreme activities often opt for nylon bands for this very reason.
Another benefit of a nylon watch strap is that it is washable. When cleaning your nylon watch strap, you don’t have to tread on eggshells for fear of accidental damage.

How to Care for Your Nylon Watch Band
NATO straps can withstand the accumulation of grime and dirt without deteriorating or fading. However, the material can quickly get dirty, and we recommend that you remove the NATO-style strap from the watch and clean it at least once every two weeks.
Clean the watch band using lukewarm water and hand soap. Wet the NATO-style watch strap thoroughly and lather the soap into the stitching with your fingers. You can also use a toothbrush to loosen stubborn dirt.
Then, rinse the NATO-style strap thoroughly and let it dry overnight. Don’t use a hairdryer to speed up the drying process, as it can melt the nylon band.
If you don’t feel like washing your strap, place it in the pocket of your dirty jeans, and throw it in the washing machine. If you use this method to clean your strap, use cold water and don’t put it in the dryer after the wash.
