The Military Type (sometimes called the Florentine) Komfit band was one of the (if not the) first Forstner bracelets employing the patented "slide band" technology that ultimately was branded the Komfit. Showcased in patent filings in the late 1930s, and marketed as "thin as a dime, completely flexible, adjustable to any wrist," the Military Type Komfit band exemplifies the Komfit's core qualities. It's comfortable, gorgeous, and filled with vintage/Art Deco charm. Forstner has finally re-created and improved this classic design.

The Military Type Komfit, made entirely of stainless steel, employs many of the same distinctive features as the Komfit "JB" mesh bracelet, including beautifully decorated spring-loaded end pieces and a unique forward-facing clasp. However, the Military Type is distinguishable by its horizontal "slat" design, which looks great on virtually any piece -- whether dressy or sporty. On the backside of the bracelet (facing the wrist) is finely-woven mesh, ensuring flexibility and comfort (preventing dreaded hair pulling).

About Forstner

Originally founded in 1920, Forstner Bands have always focused on making fine accessories for wrist watches. Starting out with ornamental bracelets, the brand eventually moved on to create several iconic watch bracelets, including the Komfit and Bonklip — both highly adjustable to comfortably suit a wide range of wrist sizes. Forstner is probably best known for being the metal band of choice for NASA astronauts, commonly seen fitted to their trusty Speedmasters. In 2019, the brand relaunched with their most popular designs, providing a quality aftermarket option for your favorite watch.
