The Gold Standard for Leather Watch Straps

All of our watch straps are entirely handmade, utilising traditional leathercrafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure your straps are durable and develop character with wear. All of our straps are lined with Zermatt leather, a hypoallergenic and water-resistant french calf leather. As all our leathers are full-grain leathers, the natural characteristics of the leather will show and may vary across straps.

Hypoallergenic Calfskin Lining

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.

Fine Hand Stitching

Our made-to-order straps showcase a fine hand-stitching density. With a spacing of 2.4mm per stitch, this creates a very refined look. Should you wish to go for a more rugged look, we also offer thicker thread and wider density stitching at 2.7mm and 3.0mm.

Strap Thickness

Our standard unpadded strap thickness is 2.2mm and padded strap thickness tapers from 4.5mm to 2.2mm. We are able to customise the thickness of the strap accordingly.

316L Stainless Steel Buckle

Our straps 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.

Spring Bars

Choose between regular spring bars, quick-release spring bars or no spring bars. While quick-release spring bars are our preference as we love to change straps, we also understand it's not everyones cup of tea!

Smooth & Polished Edges

The edges of our straps are finished with Italian edge paint - sealing the raw edges from wear and tear. With over 5 layers of edge paint applied and rigorous sanding in between, our straps exhibit a beautiful smooth edge.

Tan nappa for my nomos

Such high quality and such amazing customer service!

As always - amazing craftsmanship by the team at Artisan Straps. All of my queries were handled very professionally and I cannot fault the communication, period. It was one of the best customer service experiences I've ever had - from asking question after questions, Jayson was able to answer all of it for me.

I'm going through a tough time in my life, yet these watch straps have brightened my day, each time a new one has arrived. I just have one final purchase for now - likely this Novonappa again but in black. That's how much I adore this particular strap!

See the photo to have a look at it on my Stowa Flieger Classic 40mm - it just makes the dial "pop". I cannot wait to order my next strap from this incredible business. Truly, top job guys, you're doing amazing work.

And the quick release spring bars are a dream - I can go from a casual blue in the morning, to this brown strap for drinks with friends, to my dark navy ostrich strap for dinner. Changing the strap takes two minutes, max. I do not miss traditional spring bars!

Ok, that's all for now. I could go and on, I'm just blown away by the quality of the products and the level of customer service. Thank you so much.

Beautiful Tan Novonappa

Ordered x2 custom straps for Omega style clasps - 3rd & 4th straps from Artisan. Exquisite!! Leather is so soft and smooth and to top it off, the finish and construction was superb.
Will definitely be ordering more!

The quality of the leather is superb and the price for this was beyond reasonable. The custom service was a double bonus and the leather was high quality calf skin equal to most high end brands
