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.

Quick-Release Spring Bars

Our ready-to-wear straps come with quick-release spring bars which allows you to easily install and remove the strap without the need of a tool. Say good bye to scratching the lugs of your watch!

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.

Water-resistant 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.

Can't wait to see how this develops a patina over time

The strap I received is more of a light earthy taupe with shades of ivory/bone. It is a bit porous and any rubbing or contact with skin, and even my leather storage bag, burnishes it, imparting interesting textural elements to the scales, highlighting the patterns on the leather. I did not have a watch in mind when I bought this. I wanted to see first-hand what premium quality alligator is like in an unusual colour so it was a very pleasant surprise when I put it on my Bausele Gallipoli commemorative. I love the way it complements and brings out the features of the watch without overpowering it.

Beautiful colour

The light grey is more of an off-white / bone color but looks fantastic when contrasting against white indices. Craftsmanship superb as always from Artisan

Light Grey Alligator Strap

Beautiful strap but the colour was different to what I anticipated. An email to the Artisan Strap team and instructions for a return and refund sent back, no fuss. Will purchase instead the Himalayan Croc Strap instead to replace as soon as the return clears. Great product and even better customer service!!
