The single pass watch strap is a comfortable favorite among watch lovers. The nylon or polyester designs come in a variety of styles and you can get great quality for a very reasonable price! RSM Watch Straps offer two classic single pass watch straps – the military inspired Herringbone and the classic Engraved Stripe. Find your favorite below and see just how easy it is to change the strap.
The military-inspired Herringbone Twill strap
The Herringbone Twill strap is inspired by the historical M1941 HBT uniform issued to soldiers during WWII. It’s classic pattern widely used in masculine fabrics and architecture was introduced as a rip-preventive fabric for the uniforms and made to last during distressed conditions. The subtle weave pattern is the perfect choice for most classic watches and will add both comfort, security and style.
“The Herringbone Twill weave pattern was introduced as the first rip-preventive fabric for the uniform. It was robust and held up well under distressed conditions. Interestingly, it is also very comfortable for the wearer.”

Engraved Stripe with jacquard weaving
If you’re looking for a two-tone strap, the Engraved Stripe is a great alternative. Jacquard weaving with the center line slightly thinner than the rest of the strap makes it comfortable and easy to slide between the spring bars and watch case. You can choose from a cool tone-in-tone stealth grey or three models with contrast coloring – one of them perfect for the classic ‘Pepsi’.
Prototyping to get the best result
Behind RSM Watch Straps is a group of architects and designers who love fabric straps and simply cannot get enough of them. So much that they have made lots of prototypes to perfect the design with weaving patterns, optimized density and correct sizing – also for larger wrists.
The refinement makes their two designs stand out from the crowd of standard and lower-priced straps. It took the team more than a year to finalize the design, something that you’ll notice when re-strapping your watch and discovering the comfort and great finish of both the Herringbone Twill and Engraved Stripe straps.
