20mm Brown 1950s Pattern Leather Military Watch Strap with Protective Face Cover

£13.50 13.50



These leather covered watch straps with face protector were very widely used in the 1950s and 1960s, this is because not only do they offer a high degree of protection to the watch itself but during night time operations they also prevent image intensifiers from picking up the glow of the watches dial. Interestingly with the increasing use of self luminous watches - which use GTLS tritium light sources - these straps along with their modern nylon covered equivalents have once again become extremely popular among serving military personnel who are keen for obvious reasons when on active operations to conceal their position.
