An exact replica NASA, EXTRA SHORT watchband as used on Apollo, Skylab, and early Shuttle missions while inside the spacecraft and during training (the longer version being used on the outside of the spacesuits while on Lunar and "spacewalk" EVA). 

Gray/green "foliage" mil-spec grosgrain tape replicates some of the watchstraps seen throughout Gemini and Apollo. Most recently, Apollo 15 Commander Dave Scott's Bulova watch sold with an original long "-202" watchband and foliage gray grosgrain tape. 

  • Fits 20mm and 19mm watch lug width (actual width is 3/4" mil-spec hook/loop material, with 1/16" allowable tolerance, as specified by NASA. Sometimes these are closer to 19mm and have a slight gap at the lug for Speedmasters or Bulova watches, which is correct for the original issued straps during Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, and Shuttle era).
  • 9.5" long - fits 5" to 6" wrists
  • Uses modern Mil-Spec Velcro Brand fastener of the same type issued by NASA
  • Exact reproduction stainless rectangular ring
  • Foliage gray/green military spec grosgrain tape
  • Authentic P/N and SN markings

This is an excellent, daily-wear version of the NASA‐issued extra short watchband and will hold up to any mission, big or small.

A great watch band.

I am a very tactile centric person. When it comes to any item or article of clothing I like, my first thought is “what does it feel like?” With this watch band, I can touch the most accurate recreation of a NASA watch band on the market. I can trust that this band that I’m wearing right now, is exactly like the real ones worn by astronauts, and that just fills me with a childish joy. I highly recommend purchasing this band, it doesn’t disappoint.

The coolest option for your Lunar Pilot!

Very nicely made with fantastic detail in the serialized stamping on the tape. What's not to like?! Much more accurate to the real thing than what comes with the watch and it's a bargain at this price.
