This is our most totally unique and limited edition watch strap made of the French ammunition pouch! These are made from an ultra unique and extremely rare ammo pouch that dates back to 1900th. The pouches were most likely used in the French Foreign Legion, as the design is very similar to the pouches used in Algeria in 1950th-1960th by French legion (see an image in the product photos). At least, we know it is from that era. 

Most were made around the 1950s to 1960s  they will last a lifetime, even through the toughest of conditions.

We keep the construction very simple with 1 piece of vintage leather and your buckle of choice. We process the ammo leather with oils to make it smoother and last longer without breaking. Please, note that the leather is over 50 years old and has signs of using it in the army purposes. Each strap is unique and the marks as well as strap color shadows might differ from the product images.

Every leather piece is unique and might differ from the image. It is totally unique watch band and you will never meet the other the same watchband. Images are from the made to order watch bands, each is unique and is hard to repeat since all leather pieces are different in tone. 

We need 5-10 business days to get the ammo watch band ready (due to extra oil processing). 

NB! Ammo straps are made of real vintage leather from 1900th-1980th. The leather might get dry and requires special leather care balm to avoid drying and breaking. The leather balms also increase longevity of the leather straps and make them softer. We have tested and highly recommend applying small amount of natural Smith's Balm (made of organic cocoa butter, beeswax and 100% pure sweet almond oil) weekly to the valuable Ammo watch band.
