Every strap is individually handcrafted by our team of skilled leathercrafters, using traditional techniques employed by the best leathercrafters in the world. There are over 50 steps involved, using a wide range of tools and machines.
The New Standard
We started off as watch collectors and leathercrafters. In a world where everything is done facing a digital screen, there was something romantic about winding a crown and watching the watch spring into life, or creating with your bare hands a functional and beautiful leather product out of its raw materials. We wanted to marry these two worlds, by bringing our experience and knowledge in crafting to produce exceptional products for watch enthusiasts.
Since launching in 2018 with a small, curated collection of leather straps, we have since expanded and now offer one of the most extensive collection of handcrafted leather straps in a wide range of width and sizes, and offer a Custom Strap Program to meet your unique requirements. We also set out to create watch storage and leather goods that matched up to the timepieces you had - functional art that you can hold, use and admire. Beyond our products, we also aspire to provide an online shopping platform and experience that is enjoyable and fun.
We hope to build a community that enjoys the accessories as much as the timepieces that they hold, and we hope you'll join us in this journey!
Get Inspired with our Strap Guides
As a strap retailer with hundreds of different straps available, the most common question and request we receive is for strap recommendations. With the many different watches out there, it can be challenging trying to find out what is the best looking combination for the watch. And not all of us have rich and vibrant imaginations, or dare to take a leap with a bold combination.
The Strap Guide series was created as a way to showcase different strap options on various watches, with the help of the watch community. We wanted to reach out to different personalities in our community, because of the variety that this provides, in terms of the watches we feature, the straps chosen, and even the style of photography and writing.
You Ask. We Answered.
I’ve purchased several straps from Delugs and the quality is exceptional. This brown waxy strap is my favorite so far. Color is simply gorgeous and it wears like butter! Highly recommended.
Got a custom Alligator strap for my wife's JLC Reverso. She was delighted with the quality of Ken's craft that she made me get a custom matching strap for mine Reverso! Great work, Ken!
Been searching for quality watch straps and am glad to stumble upon Delugs. Item was made from quality leather, at a reasonable price point as well. Recommend purchasing from Delugs wholeheartedly!
Got my latest order from Delugs, and once again, they have come through! I keep thinking of new ideas for straps, and the only thing slowing me down from ordering is waiting for the previous order to arrive, so I can see how the colors look in real life.
Got this to match the blued seconds hand on my SBGA415, and it did not disappoint. The texture and stitching gives it a vintage feel and the quality matches the Grand Seiko standard. It’s almost like the strap could have come with this watch! Highly recommend.
The millennium aquamarine is a very special color that is so vibrant and stands out from the crowd. Looks great on my 1815!
Very supple, looks super unique, and looks amazing on my wife's new Panerai Luminor Due. (The strap was custom made with the Panerai style hole punch)
I hadn't heard of Babele leather prior to purchasing this strap but the texture looked very interesting. Once it came in, I was surprised at how great the strap looked and felt on wrist. It's very pliable and comfortable in the way it hugs the wrist, and the texture of the Babele leather makes it very unique in the world of watch straps. Durability and versatility are also very high on this one as I wear it with both my Nomos Tangente 38 and my First Omega in Space Speedmaster. Highly recommend this Babele leather.
Prior to trying out Delugs, I never understood why people would spend upwards of $50 on a strap. Having owned mine for awhile though, I stand corrected - not only is the strap soft and pliable, it is also extremely comfortable and has a nice sheen to it.
I ordered a custom Niloticus Glossy Grey strap from the New Leathers section! Everything was to our specifications and it came out perfect! The new leather section is seriously such a gem and I highly recommend it. Also the photos are colour accurate if you’re wondering
I ordered a bespoke Chocolate Brown Crocodile strap with Orange Smooth Epsom lining leather, and the result is stunning. The leather is beautiful and clearly of very high quality, and I love the contrasting smooth Epsom. Very happy customer and sure to be a returning one!
I have had this strap for a while now, and I still haven’t gotten tired of it. I’d never had a high quality alligator strap before; I’ve only purchased cheap “alligator” straps for under $40 that were really just printed cheap calf skin. Truly terrible and uncomfortable. I have, however, seen alligator straps standard on GS and Panerai (handled and worn in person), but I still prefer the look and feel of my gator straps from delugs. From my Sarb to my cocktail time, this strap has bounced back and forth from dressy casual to formal occasions, and anyone who has noticed my watches have always commented first on my straps. This one has received the most attention by far. Overall: build quality, texture, durability, and wearability are all 5/5.
This leather is very soft and comfortable to wear. The sides and under is also of high quality and neatly finished. This rustic grey-green color is surprisingly very versatile and pairs well with many of my watches!
I was very excited about this brand after reading an article on Fratello Watches, and several reddit post. After recently purchasing my grail watch a vintage Calatrava I knew the honey moon period would be long and pleasurable. I was excited to get multiple straps to make with any attire. I also have a Chronograph with odd lug/buckle width, that was in need of a refresh. I purchased four straps from Delugs, one of which was bespoke with the infamous 21/16 curved lug style and they absolutely nailed it. It was created with the wrong lining color but a gentleman named Ken reached out to me with photos prior to shipping and allowed decide rather I wanted it re-crafted. I decided to take it as is and couldn’t be more pleased, the blue crocodile accents the rose gold case of my Perregaux Chronograpie Classique perfectly and I’ll eventually purchase another bespoke strap for it to wear during the winter months. For the Calatrava I choose Bordeaux epsom, Green Dollaro, and Blue Dollaro. After a through examination I can say the craftsmanship is on par or exceeds anyone offering hand made leather goods. Shipping was quick and inexpensive. If you have purchased from Ateleir’s in France or Italy that’s the level these guys are putting on. Thank you for being an awesome value proposition!
I recently purchased a custom, leather strap from Delugs for the first time. I am very pleased with my purchase, and I definitely plan to buy more straps from them in the future. The customization process was very easy and I promptly received exactly what I ordered. The strap fits my watch perfectly, and it looks beautiful!
