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

This leather is extremely supple and has a strong resistance to marks. It is hand-buffed which creates an antique finish. This leather has excellent water resistance and is easy to maintain. The distinctive grain of the Buffalo leather gives it a timeless look.

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.
