Comprises a sea blue nylon exterior with black hook/ loop lining and white NAVY-66 markings.
The NAVY-66 IVA strap is based on the iconic USN Sea Kings which served as the primary recovery vehicle for Apollo missions 8, 10, 11, 12, and 13. In addition to the Navy designation marking, the strap features the 5 command module markings used to represent each recovery, as also found on the helicopter hull.
A full length webbing lining equips the IVA strap with uniform structure and support, while a high grip rubber locking keeper ensures a highly secure mounting (spare also included).
Retaining the security of a one-piece layout to protect against watch case spring-bar failure, the IVA strap itself is spring-bar free and utilises a robust bead blasted hoop buckle making it a highly secure mission tool.
Shorter than the traditional externally mounted EVA strap, the HAV-IVA is engineered for enhanced for functionality, comfort and aesthetics, while crossing over with, and making a very capable dive strap.
CONSTRUCTION / INSTALLATION
With its double layer construction and hook/ loop nature, the HAV-IVA line has a higher side profile than our other straps.
For watches with a limited spring-bar to case clearance, install bars over the strap, or consider curved bars. Do not force strap through, as this may deteriorate strap, bars and case.
