Chat with us now
Nubuck has a soft touch with a short and even nap. It is supple and flexible from the start, but yet has just the right amount of structure. This strap is great if you are looking for something that's casual enough for all your daily activities, soft and comfortable to the touch, and an alternative to regular leather texture.
Strap Length Guide
There are two sides per strap, which we refer to as the long end and the short end, which are represented by C and D respectively in the diagram below.
Our handcrafted leather straps come in 3 different lengths.
- Small (C: 105mm, D: 65mm)
- Medium (C: 115mm, D: 70mm)
- Large (C: 125mm, D: 75mm)
A quick way to decide on the length to get is based on your wrist size. Here is the general recommendation (if you are between sizes, we recommend to size up):
- Wrist size of 14.5cm - 17.0cm: Small
- Wrist size of 16.5cm - 19.0cm : Medium
- Wrist size of 18.5cm - 21.0cm: Large
If you need a strap that is shorter than Small (105/65), or longer than Large (125/75), you can always have the strap custom made.
|A||Lug width||Varies by lug width
(see product listing)
|C||Long strap length||105mm||115mm||125mm|
|D||Short strap length||65mm||70mm||75mm|
|E||Distance to middle hole||63mm||71mm||81mm|
|F||Distance between holes||6mm|
|G||Size of holes||1.8mm|
|Number of Strap Holes||7||7||7|
Hope this quick guide helps! Finding the perfect length to get can be a little bit more complicated, as it also depends on the lug-to-lug distance of your watch, and even the shape of your wrist. For a more detailed guide on sizing, please check out this page.
Find Your Lug Width
If you're looking to purchase a strap for your watch, you will need to know the lug width of your watch. Lug width refers to "A" in this schematic below.
There are two ways to find out the lug width of your watch.
- Firstly, you can Google "<watch brand and model> lug width" and see if there is an answer from the brand's website, or some other websites.
- Alternatively, you can simply take a ruler and measure the lug width directly on your watch.
Lug widths are typically in whole numbers, and while the most common lug widths are between 18-22mm, they can go down to 8mm or up to 32mm even. Our ready stock straps are available in 16mm, 17mm, 18mm, 19mm, 20mm, 21mm, 22mm, 24mm and 26mm. If you need other lug widths, you can have it custom made.
You will then need to purchase a strap of the same lug width. For example, if your watch has a lug width of 20mm, you will need to purchase strap with a width of 20-16.
Note: Our Widths typically have two numbers, for example 20-16. The first number (20) refers to the lug width ("A" in the schematic above). The second number (16) refers to the buckle width ("B" in the schematic above). You just need to ensure that the first number matches the lug width of your watch.

My third strap from Delugs and absolutely no surprise at the high quality and feel of this strap. It conforms to the wrist quickly enough out of the packaging but requires a bit more time to "break in" than other materials. I have it hugging a watch cushion for now and will wear in a few days once it takes shape. Looks great with the Delugs butterfly deployment clasp (which Delugs were kind enough to fit for me - was a nice surprise to find it ready to wear).
it's quite disappointing that the edges of the butterfly deployant clasp are not smooth enough and the overall quality is not satisfying.
Got this strap for my Grand Seiko Shunbun just in time for my trip to Japan and was really impressed by the suppleness and texture of the strap. No break-in time required and the strap shows no signs of scratching or water stains after 2 weeks of daily wear.
Highly recommended and will definitely order more straps from Delugs again!
The soft texture of the leather is very comfortable for daily use. Makes me want to use this watch more often. Highly recommended.
