PATTERN/ PAIRING:

Features a distinctive contrast of black/ white centre stripes on a classic military green base.

On the eve of  the D-Day invasion in 1944, ground crews were given only a few hours notice to paint stripes onto the fuselage and wings of Allied aircraft for recognition purposes. These distinct alternating markings have come to be known as "Invasion Stripes".

The Invasion A2 Strap combines an instantly recognisable striped scheme with a classic field green which pairs excellently with Pilot and Field pieces as well as with monotone dial designs.

LAYOUT:

A re-engineered one-piece strap layout outfitted with our signature secondary floating keeper, which allows the spare tail to be stowed without the need for folding back (unless desired), and repositioned 7 o’clock buckle to deliver greater comfort and enhanced aesthetics. 

As part of our ongoing commitment to continuous refinement, our "A2" (Alteration 2) straps are also equipped with a single-pass layout for a streamlined wearing profile and reduced "off-wrist" height while retaining the security of a one-piece layout to protect against spring-bar failure.
