Our Saffiano Italian calf is an embossed grain, vegetable-tanned leather sourced from Italy. Commonly used to make handbags and wallets by Hermes and top luxury brands, this leather is scratch-resistant, durable yet soft and extremely comfortable to wear on the wrist. The leather has a nice deep grain to it with a waterproof finishing, making it ideal for watch straps that are exposed to the elements.

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 love these straps!

I bought a black strap and a brown one for my lovely JLC Reverso, and I loved them so much, I followed up with an order for 4 more straps in a variety of colours. The quality of the leathers is excellent, and the workmanship quite exquisite. These straps are at least as good as those that come from famous watch brands, but are much more reasonably priced - and you have the advantage of being able to customise the size, tapering, leather, colour and stitching. I couldn’t be happier!

Excellent workmahship, fitting and quality of leather.

A repeat customer who recommended and placed a made-to-order on behalf of friend. Friend was extremely impressed by the workmanship, perfect (yes, perfect) fitting, and the high quality of the Saffiano leather.

Buttery soft and luxurious!

I ordered the blue saffiano leather strap after seeing someone post a photo of it and mentioning Artisan Straps on one of the Reddit watch subreddits. I ordered a custom 17mm strap with quick release spring bars in exactly the leather I wanted. It is so hard to find strap companies that will make this size, offer quick release spring bars, and have such a wide selection of possible leathers! The straps are not cheap, but the prices are fair considering the workmanship and the fact that they are handmade. Definitely already spreading the word about Artisan Straps among my friends!
