It was a coincidental meeting halfway around the world that brought founder Filip Tysander and Daniel Wellington together. Drawn to Daniel’s fondness for wearing vintage watches on old, weathered NATO straps, Filip was inspired to create his own line of watches. The NATO watch strap first appeared in the British Ministry of Defence in 1973, desired for their simplicity and practicality. However since the birth of Daniel Wellington the NATO strap has become a versatile fashion item to suit any outfit, any occasion and any mood.
