HOME > PRODUCTS > THE ROUNDEL '43 STRAP A2
An enhanced wrist profile: Our strap combines a carefully selected robust weave which returns to form and a streamlined single-pass layout which allows the watch to sit closer to the wrist.
Our redesigned strap layout means greater comfort and enhanced aesthetics. By having a 7 o'clock buckle a more ergonomic 'oval' profile is achieved.
Our updated Single-Pass layout delivers a more streamlined wearing profile and reduces "off wrist" height by removing the traditiional extended under-layer.
In conjunction with our adjusted layout, a floating second keeper allows for a spare or folded tail to be securely stowed. The strap is then finished off with our signature hex tail and subtly marked hex buckle.

Introduced with the Army-Navy aeronautical specification AN-I-9 on 14 August 1943, the USAAF roundel featured white side bars shapes to enhance visual recognition from a distance. Purposefully avoiding red, a contrasting insignia blue outline was added, with some brighter blue examples found in the Pacific theatre.
