Our Minerva Box (Italian Calf) is a vegetable-tanned leather from Badalassi Carlo in Tuscany, Italy.
Tannery: Badalassi Carlo, Italy Temper: Soft Firm Surface: Lightly tumbled grain Patina: High Water Resistance: Low. To ensure longevity, avoid moisture or soaking our straps in water.
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
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...
