About Forstner

Originally founded in the 1920s as the Forstner Chain Corporation, Forstner and its successor Jacoby Bender (JB) produced some of the most iconic bracelets of the 20th century, such as the Komfit (chosen by astronauts and worn on the moon), the Klip (its bonklip style band paired with pilot watches), the flat link (double branded with Omega), and many more. Forstner is now dedicated to reviving such classic vintage designs.

The Komfit Band

The Komfit/JB band was made to be easily adjustable, flexible, and capable of fitting just about anyone.  Strapped to the wrist one moment, it could be resized in seconds, or, in the case of emergency, removed with the flick of a finger.  As a result, NASA astronauts were permitted to wear the bracelet, and they routinely did so during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo periods.  Like the watch with which it was often worn (the Omega Speedmaster), the Komfit/JB band quickly became synonymous with the NASA space programs.
