As our straps are handcrafted with natural leather, each strap will be unique and may have slight variations to the product photo.
Shrunken Calf is an extremely soft and comfortable leather that makes for a perfect watch strap. This leather has excellent water resistance, is resilient, and easy to maintain. The textured grain gives it a timeless look and will show minimal wear over time. It is for this reason that this leather is used by many luxury brands for their handbags.
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.
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.
Looks like real leather, feels like real leather, I like it!
After an un-happy experience with a major Swiss brand strap that was advertised as leather but wasn’t, I’m happy with my soft, elegant and good looking strap. The people behind it are good to deal with too.

I was hesitant to buy. I decided to move forward and take a chance. Product came in a timely manner. Great quality and it really made my watch look like new. Very clean finish. Just beautiful. Excellent investment.
