Forstner has been in the business of making watch bracelets for a hundred years. It’s no surprise that they know how to make a great one. The Komfit is their modern reissue of the iconic watch band worn by NASA astronauts on Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions. Seen on the wrist of astronauts both on the ground and in the void of space, this flashy, yet tool-like bracelet has a look like no other. This unique bracelet is also supremely adjustable for a comfortable fit — see where the name came from now?

Crafted from lightweight, yet durable stainless steel mesh with a square-patterned design, the Komfit is easily adjustable on the fly in micro-increments for a perfect fit. Spring loaded end pieces allow the Komfit to fit a variety of lug widths, from 16-20mm with the same bracelet. The bracelet you’re getting isn’t exactly the same as the vintage version, as Forstner has made some modern improvements such as the extendable end links, a slightly wider (+1mm) band for a better fit on the wrist, and an updated clasp that’s even more secure. You can choose between straight and horned end pieces, depending on how you want your watch to look.  It’s hard to resist the vintage styling of the Komfit, especially with the updated modern construction.

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.
