As our straps are handcrafted with natural leather, each strap will be unique and may have slight variations to the product photo.
All of our watch straps are entirely handmade one by one, utilising traditional leather crafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure that your strap lasts you a lifetime. All of our straps are lined with Zermatt leather, a hypoallergenic and water-resistant french calf leather.
This is a ready-to-wear watch strap. If you would like a custom strap, please click here.
Each strap comes installed with a 316L stainless steel buckle which is engraved with our Artisan Straps logo. This buckle comes with drilled lug holes allowing for easy removal without damaging the strap.
In order to provide a luxurious feel, the straps are lined with Zermatt calfskin leather from Haas Tannery. This premium material is specially developed for use as a lining material and offers exceptional softness and comfort. It is also water- and sweat-resistant, making it ideal for use in hot and humid climates.
Very happy. Quality is excellent. I have small wrists and the small size is great.

Soft & Supple Leather Strap
Extremely impressed with the Black Barenia Calf leather strap from Artisan. I had been looking for a 21mm black padded watch strap and am so happy I went with Artisan. Excellent fit, finish, and craftsmanship.

Very pleasantly surprised. Great job.
As a new person getting into the watch hobby, I found Artisan straps through a YouTube video. Also to be noted, I have small wrists and could not make use of the standard strap size being sold en masse.
When I visit Artisan’s website, I found that I can special order the size and stitching color. Living in the US, the ordering, Artisan’s making of the strap, and shipping took two months. That was disappointing. To be fair, the Covid restrictions and US customs is responsible for some of the time delay. When put it on my watch, I was very happy how the strap complimented the watch. It looks like something the the manufacturer should thought about when the roll out the watch. Thanks
