Our Epsom French Calf is an embossed grain, chrome-tanned leather from the Tannery Haas and Tannery Du Puy, near the river Rhine and in the alpine regions of France. Epsom calf leather is a classic, with excellent resistance against scratches and water. It is used for many leather products by high-end brands such as Hermes and it is incredibly water and scratch-resistant and easy to clean. Epsom's grain is more pronounced due to it being embossed, making it great for dressing down your watch for a casual appearance.

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.

You must try it. I get straps from US, Europe and Asia and they come from average to good. This is my first strap from Artisan, and I’m just so impressed with the quality. Wow. Leather quality, stitching and workmanship is just so impressive. Will definitely order there again!

I have been complimented on this band frequently. It is identical to the Hermes one and I'm thrilled with how it looks. Jason is super responsive and answered a whole bunch of questions I had before I purchased. Quality craftsmanship and excellent leather. I will be buying another band.

Got this as a gift for my dad. Despite a brief delay, Jayson expedited the delivery, and it arrived Christmas morning just in time to give it to my dad.

Straps were well-wrapped and the quality of the leather and workmanship is immediately apparent when unwrapping them. The leather is soft, pliable, and seems like it will last decades if taken care of. My dad seemed to like it, but if he doesn't ever get around to using it, I might swipe it from his box and use it myself it's so nice! Would definitely recommend Artisan Straps to others if you don't mind the wait (about 2-3 weeks to the US).

Seller's customer service is excellent, as well as the quality of the strap. Shipping took a bit longer than expected, but I don't think it's any fault of the seller.
