Crown and Buckle Straps

What types of straps does Crown & Buckle sell?

Crown & Buckle offers pass-through straps in various styles, and two-piece straps (made from leather, nylon, or canvas).

Width: Their most popular models are made in widths of 18mm, 19mm, 20mm, 21mm, and 22mm.

If you need a strap for watches with 16mm, 23mm, or 24mm lug widths, then Crown & Buckle got you covered, but the offering is not as extensive.

Material: In short, they use nylon, canvas, braided perlon, and leather to produce their straps.

Let us elaborate a bit more about their nylon. It's not that stiff, coarse, and uncomfortable one you've experienced with cheap natos.

Crown & Buckle's nylon is very soft and super comfortable. It does not feel "plasticky", but rather like a piece of fabric or canvas. Kudos to C&B for perfecting their nylon material.

What makes them special?

They are true pioneers of the watch strap industry. Constantly innovating and improving. And never compromising on the quality of their products.

People are copying C&B products. That's how you know the company is doing great stuff.

By the way companies: do not do that. Copying sends a message that it is acceptable to infringe on someone else's ideas or designs, which can ultimately shut-down creativity and progress.

To buyers: please support those who are true innovators and have original designs, companies like Crown & Buckle.

I bought my first Crown & Buckle nato in 2013, and ever since they are my preferred choice when it comes to buying pass-through straps.

About Crown & Buckle

Crown & Buckle is an online watch strap store that offers custom-styled, high-quality nylon and leather straps at a reasonable price point. They believe in attention to detail and strive for greatness in everything they do, from the collection of styles they offer to the way they treat each customer. They work directly with manufacturers and factories to bring a unique collection of watch straps, and maintain fair prices by stocking a large inventory in Florida.

The concept for Crown & Buckle was developed in 2010 by Thomas Lathrop, and since then they have prioritized personal service and pride in their work. They have received love from mainstream and watch media, and support and sponsor several watch forums, websites, and fairs/shows. They have recently relocated the business and their families to Charlotte, North Carolina.
