Walnut Brown Italian Waxy Leather Strap

Sale price$130.00 AUD

Size: 24mm/20mm

Our Italian Waxy Calf is a vegetable-tanned leather from Badalassi Carlo in Tuscany Italy. The Italian Waxy is full of character. It is a natural coloured leather, but due to the high wax content, areas of the strap appear darker and have natural creases. Over time, this leather will develop a sheen, and the colour will deepen over time. Please note that the grain pattern may vary.

  • Temper: Medium
  • Surface: Smooth with natural creases
  • Patina: Slow patina
  • Water Resistance: Low. To ensure longevity, avoid moisture or soaking our straps in water.

The Gold Standard for Leather Watch Straps

All of our watch straps are entirely handmade, utilising traditional leathercrafting techniques. They are cut, saddle stitched and edge painted by hand to ensure your straps are durable and develop character with wear. 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.

Hypoallergenic Calfskin Lining

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.

Fine Hand Stitching

Our made-to-order straps showcase a fine hand-stitching density. With a spacing of 2.4mm per stitch, this creates a very refined look. Should you wish to go for a more rugged look, we also offer thicker thread and wider density stitching at 2.7mm and 3.0mm.

Strap Thickness

Our standard unpadded strap thickness is 2.2mm and padded strap thickness tapers from 4.5mm to 2.2mm. We are able to customise the thickness of the strap accordingly.

316L Stainless Steel Buckle

Our straps 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.

Spring Bars

Choose between regular spring bars, quick-release spring bars or no spring bars. While quick-release spring bars are our preference as we love to change straps, we also understand it's not everyones cup of tea!

Smooth & Polished Edges

The edges of our straps are finished with Italian edge paint - sealing the raw edges from wear and tear. With over 5 layers of edge paint applied and rigorous sanding in between, our straps exhibit a beautiful smooth edge.

I received exactly what I ordered. What more could I have wanted?
I was sent pictures of the strap being made. Which was amazing and unexpected, a really nice touch.
The simple fact is: These are hand-made, luxurious items, crafted by an expert artisan with obvious experience. And the product came out as such, gorgeous.
It is beautifully crafted, expertly put together and perfectly finished and all this is done and delivered in less than two weeks and for a bargain price point. It would still be a great value proposition at twice the cost.
Do I recommend? Yes, I do. For every plausible and conceivable reason. I was not disappointed and you too will find out why.
I know it's a bit dramatic to give such a glowing review .. truth is, it's very much warranted.
