The Gold Standard for Leather Watch Straps

All of our watch straps are entirely handmade, utilising traditional leather crafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure your straps are durable and refined. 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.

Very pleasantly surprised. Great job.

As a new person getting into the watch hobby, I found Artisan straps through a YouTube video. Also to be noted, I have small wrists and could not make use of the standard strap size being sold en masse.
When I visit Artisan’s website, I found that I can special order the size and stitching color. Living in the US, the ordering, Artisan’s making of the strap, and shipping took two months. That was disappointing. To be fair, the Covid restrictions and US customs is responsible for some of the time delay. When put it on my watch, I was very happy how the strap complimented the watch. It looks like something the the manufacturer should thought about when the roll out the watch. Thanks
