Cognac Shell Cordovan Leather Strap

Our Shinki Hikaku Shell Cordovan is a mixed tanned leather from Shinki Hikaku in Japan.

Tannery: Shinki Hikaku, Japan
Temper: Firm yet malleable
Surface: Incredibly smooth with a natural sheen
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.

Shell Cordovan is famous for its gorgeous shine and unique crease-resisting property due to the density of the leather. It requires very little maintenance and overtime, develops a beautiful patina. Shell Cordovan begins as a high-shine leather and overtime becomes more dull with wear. This shine can be replenished through the application of leather conditioner and brushing vigorously.

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.

1. Extra small 95mm/65mm will fit a 5.0-5.5 inch wrist

3. Standard size 115mm/75mm will fit a 6.5-7.5 inch wrist

Knocked it out of the park again!

I have purchased several straps from the Artisan straps team (it most certainly won't be the last) and couldn't be happier. The quality and price is just unbeatable.

Very Satisfied!

I needed a strap for a new watch with and uncommon lug width (19mm). Turnaround time was very reasonable for made to order, and the options for stich color and quick-release spring bars gave my just the look and ease of use I wanted. Leather quality is great, and impressed by the overall look and construction.
