Alligator Leather is known to be at the pinnacle of high-end luxury. This black alligator comes from the famous French Tannery HCP which is owned by Hermes.
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.
As our straps are handcrafted with natural leather, each strap will be unique and may have slight variations to the product photo.
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.
Extremely happy with the quality! Jayson was very understanding and super helpful with tracking my order when we thought it was lost with auspost.

So I’m a watchmaker with Breitling. Their straps cost around $800!
So I looked around for alternatives and found a local producer of alligator straps in black and not too padded/chunky but substantial feeling. Artisan straps have the perfect proportions for my Superocean. Quality seems great and clasp is nice and not too large. I will be wearing this strap only in winter to extend longevity and hope I get a reasonable life out of it. Delivery was prompt and well packaged.
