About Us & FAQ

Hi and welcome to CheapestNatoStraps.com! 

 

SofieMy name is Sofie Björklund and I’m a watch enthusiast, well, ”nerd” maybe a better word to describe my relationship with watches. I got my interest in watches from my grandfather. He was a watchmaker and collector, and introduced me to this world at a very early age. In 2012 I started selling watch bands and NATO straps under the name of CheapestNATOStraps.

Before that I was a manager of a mens wear shop. There I quickly realized that NATO straps is the perfect accessory. Here is why: It’s an excellent and quick way to match the watch you are wearing with all kinds of outfits. And it´s an easy way to completely change the look of your watch. 

After a couple of years I decided to expand my range and in 2015 I started selling watchbands from some european strapmakers. However, I was missing the possibility to design my own watchbands, so I started looking for someone that could produce my designs. In early 2016 I finally met a small tannery who works mostly with leather from fallow deer. We spent months experimentering with different kinds of leather tanning and at last we found, what I think is the perfect leather and tanning for watchbands, and together we founded Kvarnsjö Leather.

My goal with CheapestNATOStraps is to offer the largest selection of NATO straps, zulu straps, perlon straps and regular watchbands at the best prices.
