Four Shades of Love

Valentine's Day Specials

In prevision of Valentine's Day 2014, Techné is releasing a Pair Watch bundled with 4 British military nylon straps.

The pair watch can be purchased at any of our participating partners or on our web-store.

Machine-washable, durable, tear-proof and extremely comfortable in moist climates, the "one size fits all" nylon strap is sold in an assortment of 4 colours, one for each of the ancient Greek concepts of Love: spiritual, physical, mental and familial (agápe, érōs, philía, storgē).

The matching models are the 38 mm Merlin 249, which comes with a domed hardened mineral crystal, and the 41 mm Harrier 375, which comes with a flat sapphire crystal and a screw-down crown. Both timepieces feature broad luminous indexes and Arabic numerals, and their battery life spans over 3 years.

The nylon strap is based on the 1973 Defence Standard 66-13 (now 66-47) of the British Ministry of Defence. The purpose was to have a strap of "straight cross weave nylon ribbon, free from additives which may act as an irritant to the wrist under humid or extreme conditions".

The original strap had a NATO identification number which led it to be nicknamed "NATO" by watch collectors. It was only available in 20 mm, grey colour, and the loops and buckle were made out of brass and chromium-plated.

Woven in genuine Nylon 6, the 20 mm Techné version features signed loops and buckle in brushed stainless steel, and the ribbon is stitched instead of simply being welded as specified by the Defence Standard 66-13.
