Tannery: Badalassi Carlo, Italy

As our straps are handcrafted with natural leather, each strap will be unique and may have slight variations to the product photo.

Minerva Box is a soft and supple leather which has a light pebbled grain from being tumbled. As it is vegetable-tanned, it will patina and darken with wear, adding more character to the leather.

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.

For an approximate wrist size guide:
1. Extra small 95mm/65mm will fit a 5.0-5.5 inch wrist
2. Small sized 105mm/70mm will fit a 6.0-6.5 inch wrist
3. Standard size 115mm/75mm will fit a 6.5-7.5 inch wrist
4. Large size 125mm/80mm will fit a 7.5-8.0 inch wrist

Good strap allowing customisation

Really soft leather and good communication - I made a mistake for the custom stitch colour and they corrected for me promptly. It arrived very quickly after dispatch due to the express mail. However I opted for quick release but received it with normal spring bars. Not a huge flaw but quick release would've been easier for me (I'm always scratching the lugs).

Really High quality Black Minerva Strap-as good(or better) as an oem strap

Ordered my first strap off the Artisan strap team - the black Minerva Strap. The leather is supple, the sheen is nicely muted and the stitching for the strap is understated. It's the look I wanted to compliment the watch. I'm very impressed with the quality and I have no doubt I'll be on the hunt for another strap or two at some point from artisan again. Production and shipping was super fast too and the whole experience has been a delight.

New Band for my Certina DS Podium

In a word, perfect! The new band I ordered for as a replacement for my Certina looks better than the original. Simple to fit, perfect sizing and super supple straight up. Thanks Jayson, will be ordering a next band for the Meistersinger now...

Fantastic quality and service.

New strap for Tissot watch, perfect fit and appearance for my close to 8 inch wrist. Very happy with the replacement for the inferior factory strap. Fast delivery and service.
