Black Watch Tartan

Black Watch tartan

The distinctive navy and green check Black Watch tartan is the official regimental tartan of the similarly named battalion, founded in 1881 in Scotland.

Historically drawing its recruits from the Dundee, Fife, Perth and Kinross areas it’s easy to see why it was a natural choice for one of our tartan watch straps, as Kartel’s flagship shop is located in Fife.

Kartel uses the Black Watch  tartan in its range of watches, featuring it on a watch strap, backed with nubuck leather for comfortable and durability.

You can buy the Black Watch tartan watch straps in 16mm and 20mm widths and as part of complete watches using our Kendrick and Isla cases.
