Perlon Straps – Available Australia-Wide
These Perlon watch bands are a perfect summer accessory because they are made from weaving nylon, giving it a considerable amount of breathability, which helps keep your wrist cool over summer. They are known to be lightweight, comfortable and affordable - the three things you look for in a perfect watch strap.
These complement many different types of watches and add a bit of flair to your look with the ultra-strong plaited aspect. The strength means that it is unlikely to fray or tear because the plaits add extra stability.
These braided nylon pieces make a great addition to your collection and look fantastic on your vintage and modern watches alike. We particularly love that they dry quickly after being in the pool on a hot summer's afternoon.
Why Choose Perlon Watch Straps?
Did you know that the Perlon design was inspired by the meticulously specialised straps used in horse riding? This is why the fit is right on the wrist and can be adjusted to the nearest millimetre compared to the majority of other brands.
There is much to love about these, especially the following:
- Nylon construction
- Stainless Steel Buckle
- Ability to change your style in 10 seconds - Yes that quickly!
- Waterproof and suitable for diving
- Comes with a complementary set of spring bars
- One size fits all
We love the colours that each of these come in because there is such variety. Whether you want a natural look or something bright, there is, without a doubt, a shade to suit every personality and style.
Cross NATO Bands
As the first to release Cross NATO Straps in Australia, these are a fantastic cross between Perlon and NATO. The step-buckles make it possible to micro-adjust the length, so you can get the most perfect fit you have ever had. Even better, is that you don't need to remove any spring bars to change the band, which means you could easily wear a different colour with each new outfit.
The many compelling features include:
- Stitched-in hardware
- Sits snug on the wrist
- Superior 304SS brushed stainless steel step-buckle for micro-adjustments
- Superior weaved design
- Complimentary spring bars per order
Comparing the Two
There really is no comparison between the Cross NATO and Perlon watch straps, as they both offer versatility and style. There are slight differences that may be the deal-breaker for you, but this is likely to be something as simple as a solid colour compared to a patterned option. We stock both types so if you can't decide between the two, why not try both!

Finding your strap size can be quite confusing. We'll try to make this as simple as possible
Method 1: Using a Ruler
The easiest and most accurate way to find your strap size is to use a ruler and measure between the lugs (aka measuring the "lug width").
The lugs are the pointy ends of your watch which hold the strap onto the watch.
As you can see, we've measured this two ways, the top measuring device shows 22mm, but also, the bottom tape measure measures 22mm.
This means in our store, you would select a 22mm strap! That's it!
PS: Our straps will measure slightly smaller than 22mm so that it fits to your watch!
We do NOT recommend using camera ruler apps on your phone to measure. These can be inaccurate as a 1mm difference is enough for the strap to not fit to your watch.
Method 2: The lazy method:
What you will need:
- Your watch brand
- Your watch model number, year, name (model numbers are ideal because a manufacturer may change the size between different model numbers)
What you need to know:
This method works best for the more 'popular' brands/models. If you don't have the exact specifics of the watch - do not use this method.
Go to Google and in the search field, type the following:
(BRAND) (YEAR / MODEL NAME/NUMBER) Lug Width
Rolex 2016 Submariner 114060 Lug Width
Daniel Wellington 2019 Cornwall lug width
You will be able to find different websites which will state the lug width of the watch you are looking for. Here's an example of what to look for:
Note: if you have an odd numbered strap size, for example, a 21mm lug width, you can use a 20mm strap on your watch. This will mean there will be a 1mm gap however.
