Haveston Beta White IVA Strap

Haveston Beta White IVA Strap

Manufacturer: Haveston | Price: $28.55 USD (£22 GBP, 25 EUR approx)

Introducing the Haveston IVA Series watch straps. Inspired by the original vintage space flown strap design utilised by astronauts to wrist mount mission tools. The Haveston Beta White IVA strap is based on the monochrome colour scheme found on vintage Apollo space suits and rocket markings. Its secure buckle-free design, high grip rubber locking keeper and generous areas of hook and loop also makes this strap perfect for diving and rugged tool watch use. Currently available in two different colours with more options available soon… I hope Haveston will add a blue and maybe a red or black strap to their line up.

Delivery & Packaging

Delivery of the IVA strap took less than 24 hours to arrive via Royal Mail. Haveston offer free worldwide shipping with all their straps. The packaging is surprisingly good with everything contained in a usual jiffy bag. Inside however you are confronted with an old style envelope with string fastener. Upon opening the envelope there was a personal complimentary note from Haveston, a thank you card and an instruction manual on how to fit the strap.

Haveston, The Company

Haveston are based in London, United Kingdom and were founded in 2015. Essentially they manufacture high end NATO style watch straps inspired by vintage military industrial design. To view their straps on various style watches, I’d suggest visiting them on Instagram.

Materials & Design

The Haveston IVA strap uses a full length webbing lining and dense weave nylon to give support and making the strap very comfortable for every day use. Strong velcro and high grip rubber keepers lend themselves to give a very secure mounting system for your watch. When wearing the strap there are tribute markings on the underside which does add to the monochrome aesthetic. The hoop itself is bead blasted and will match the majority of watches.

Conclusion

An excellent watch strap manufactured with great materials and a fantastic overall design and finish. The only things I would change is I would make the strap a little bit longer by around 30mm to show less of the black velcro and more of the white material to give an overall better aesthetic especially when paired with a white dial watch like I’ve used. The price of the strap I think is very fair considering you get free worldwide shipping.

9/10
