Haveston HAV-IVA Series Nylon Watch Strap, 20mm, 22mm, Dense weave nylon/ hook & loop, Stainless Steel Bead Blasted Hoop
The Havston HAV-IVA series is inspired by the original vintage space flown strap design utilised by astronauts to wrist mount mission tools.
6 colours and designs to choose from:
Comprises a Beta White nylon exterior with contrasting black hook/ loop lining and historical tribute issue markings.
The Beta White IVA is based on monotone vintage Apollo space suits (constructed of white Beta cloth) and high contrast rocket color schemes. Its utilitarian construction and bold appearance lends itself very well to a variety of Lunar, Pilot and Dive tool watches.
Comprises a black nylon exterior with black hook/ loop lining and subdued grey mission patch icon and historical tribute markings.
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.
Comprises a Lunar Grey nylon exterior with black hook/ loop lining and historical tribute issue markings.
The Lunar Grey IVA is based on the lunar regolith surface tone as well as surviving examples of vintage faded mission worn straps. Its utilitarian construction lends itself very well to a variety of Lunar, Pilot and Dive tool watches.
The 20mm version comprises a slightly darker tone and has a 10mm length extension (20mm version = 290mm, 20mm version = 280mm)
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.
Comprises a black/ white nylon exterior with black hook/ loop lining and central red type markings towards the tail.
The Redstone IVA is based on the high contrast black and white vehicle exterior scheme utilised from early rocket such as the Redstone, all the way through to the Saturn V. Also features a subtle central marking in red.
Comprises a deep orange nylon exterior with black hook/ loop lining and contrasting white mission patch icon and historical tribute markings.
Launched in 1973, Skylab was the first US space station and operated for 24 weeks. Like the early Redstone rocket steps into manned space flight, it utilised pre-existing and adapted Saturn V rocket sections from the Apollo era to achieve a stable orbital laboratory and represented a conceptual “springboard” to explore beyond.
