Our Shinki Hikaku Shell Cordovan is a mixed tanned leather from Shinki Hikaku in Japan.

Tannery: Shinki Hikaku, Japan
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

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.

Super comfortable and premium feeling

Everything about the strap feels well-made. Even the keepers feel like care has been put into them. Often OEM straps don't match the quality of the watch but these straps will match any watch.
