We are planning on getting NATO straps (herringbone weave/ car seatbelt style) from a Chinese manufacturer. These straps are being sold for $20 and above.Our costs should work around Rs. 350 for each straps (excluding the local shipping cost).Minimum Order quantity with the manufacturer is 500 straps and 50 straps per colour/size to achieve this price. So trying for a Group Order.We are ordering straps in lug sizes of 18mm, 20mm and 22mm. Have negotiated and made the manufacturer to agree for 25 straps in each size/color so that we can get more variety.

Straps are ordered in the following colours: (sample images)

The strap choices already finalized? Could you also give quotes for approximate pricing per strap.
Yes choices are already finalised. Price should work out around Rs. 350 as mentioned in the first post. (slight difference may be there, exact amount can be calculated only after paying customs)[DOUBLEPOST=1535363918][/DOUBLEPOST]
With what all watch cos are these compatible with or go good with?
I have couple of fasttrack and timex watches lying around so thinking to give them some new look and flavor. Will these go good with them?
looks entirely depends on your liking.
Regarding the strap size suiting your watch, you need to check your watches lug size and then get the strap in that size.

Minimum order quantity with the manufacturer per size/colour is 50 straps, I have somehow made them to agree for 25 straps each. If you could take the entire 25 straps in that particular colour and size, I can check with them if its possible to include it.

Consider me in as well. Will take a few, but not decided as of now. Need to work on it

Also, as requested by other, can you upload all the strap pics? That would be really helpful in deciding
