Whiskey Shell Cordovan Leather Strap

Our Shell Cordovan is a vegetable tanned leather from Rocado in Tuscany, Italy.

Tannery: Rocado, Italy
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.

For an approximate wrist size guide:
1. Extra small 95mm/65mm will fit a 5.0-5.5 inch wrist
2. Small sized 105mm/70mm will fit a 6.0-6.5 inch wrist
3. Standard size 115mm/75mm will fit a 6.5-7.5 inch wrist
4. Large size 125mm/80mm will fit a 7.5-8.0 inch wrist

High quality handmade strap from family business and friendly honest customer service

Simply gorgeous

After weeks of searching for a few leather straps for my Grand Seiko, I came across Artisan. Clearly someone at that company has a thing for Grand Seiko as well. That was enough for my to order two for my watch. These straps shipped from Australia to New York in about a week. They arrived earlier than I thought! The straps are of very high quality. Not a single flaw. Just like my watch. I know I’ll buy more when I get my next watch. I’m already debating what color to get for a second watch that I already have.

Quality, style, comfort at a reasonable price. What more can you ask?

I wanted a real top quality leather strap for my favourite watch, the Marathon Anthracite GSAR Diver and I can well and truly say that Artisan Straps has delivered! Obviously wouldn't wear the strap in the water but like most dive watch wearers I wear mine more often than not on dry land. Jayson responded quickly and clearly to my question which made waiting for the handmade product to be fulfilled stress free. The workmanship on the strap is top tier. The comfort and look sublime. I couldn't ask for any more at this price.
