They are 26.5cm in length (longer than the average available) and made of a stiff nylon material that will not fray at the ends. The width of the strap is 18mm. To the end is the retaining clip and pin, there are also three other metal rings to retain the watch on the strap and to hold the loose end of the strap when fitted for use with smaller wrists. . There are more holes than normal on these for smaller wrists. This strap can be sized to fit any size of wrist and are larger than many others on ebay to allow for larger wrists. A great quality wrist strap to allow the wearer to show true allegiance to his Capbadge. If specific gilt or nickel strap metal please state at time of purchase, else I will fit which I have most of.

PRODUCT CODE: G10LM/BLK
The G10LM is our latest G10 model and is a slightly smaller more compact version of the MWC G10 100m. The G10LM replaces several variants of the MWC G10A and although it is identical in size and appearance to the G10A it has a solid stainless steel case, 50m (165ft) water resistance, screw caseback and screw strap pins. The advantage of screw strap pins it that they have the strength of military fixed pins but provide complete flexibility to use straps which are designed for watches with civilian spring pins so where other G10 manufacturers use fixed bars forcing owners to use NATO straps this watch enables you to use any type of strap you choose. Although this watch is similar in appearance to some competitors models it is vastly different in the actual specification details. For example where competitors watches usually have a push on caseback this has a screw caseback, competitors frequently use perspex crystal whereas we use actual glass which is much more scratch resistant. Of course the biggest difference is the price because competing models are priced at €155 / £130 / $208 which is over twice the price of this watch.
