A NASA acronym, L.O.S. stands for “Loss of Signal” and commonly occurred when a spacecraft momentarily lost communications with Earth during specific stages of its flight such as re-entry into Earths atmosphere and navigating the far side of the Moon.
While it could also signify an off-nominal event, L.O.S was a necessary and anticipated stage, which like the other immeasurable unknowns of space flight were overcome and mastered with engineering, perseverance & curiosity.
An additional Extended length is available with a 50mm extension allowing for larger wrist sizes and over-sleeve mounting. Please note, over sizing too much can cause an overhang of the tail.
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.
