Delugs Strap Styles

We sell many different styles of watch straps and it may be hard to keep track of how they are all different from each other. Here's a quick rundown of their key features.

Do note that strap styles are a highly personal thing - what works for you might not work for someone else. Hence we do not have a definite suggestion on what style you should get. We hope that the photos and description will give you a better idea!

If you have any suggestions on styles we should make, please get in touch and let us know!

Signature

Our Signature style is the classic, quintessential watch strap that comes as a stock strap on most watches. Fully stitched all along the perimeter of the strap, tapered padding, fully lined and with painted edges. Tapered padding ensures that the strap feels sturdy but still highly wearable with no padding at the strap holes.

The padding is made with leather, shaped by hand to form the gentle curvature of the padding. Using leather as the padding material means that these straps are typically stiffer initially, but quickly wear in with just a few hours of wear and moulds to the shape of your wrist.

Recommended for any style of watch, as long as it is not ultra thin.

Thickness: 4.5mm tapered to 2.2mm

Stitching: Full stitching, 2.7mm width 

Thread: 0.35mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Slim

Our Slim style is almost identical to the Signature style with one key difference: no padding. The strap is uniformly thin throughout, which makes it very soft and pliable from Day 1 with no break-in required. It is very lightweight and comfortable to wear.

Recommend for those that are looking for a strap with no break-in, and for watches that have a thinner profile, or vintage watches.

Thickness: 2.2mm

Stitching: Full stitching, 2.7mm width

Thread: 0.35mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Side-Stitch

Side-Stitch style straps do not have stitching running down the sides. Instead, stitching is used selectively at critical stress points (at the lug and buckle area) to ensure that the strap is still structurally good to wear for the long term. Unlike some of the minimal stitching styles on the market, our Side-Stitch style still has another layer of lining leather, providing structure to the strap and preventing it from becoming too floppy with use.

Recommended if you are looking to dress down your watch with a more casual strap.

Thickness: 2.5mm

Stitching: Two stitches at lug and buckle area only

Thread: 0.55mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Row-Stitch

Row-Stitch style straps do not have stitching running down the sides. Instead, stitching is used selectively at critical stress points (at the lug and buckle area) to ensure that the strap is still structurally good to wear for the long term. Unlike some of the minimal stitching styles on the market, our Row-Stitch style still has another layer of lining leather, providing structure to the strap and preventing it from becoming too floppy with use.

Recommended if you are looking to dress down your watch with a more casual strap.

Thickness: 2.5mm

Stitching: Across the strap at the lug area

Thread: 0.55mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Stitchless

Stitchless straps do not have any stitching at the lug area. This is to give a cleaner look to the strap, and let the leather be the star of the show. The strap is held together by glue and edge paint.

Recommended if you are looking for a more vintage vibe or want a cleaner look.

Thickness: 2.2mm

Stitching: No stitching at the lugs. Stitching present at the buckle & keepers area

Thread: 0.55mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Chunky

As the name suggests, our Chunky style is for larger, heavier watches. We created this strap to pair with divers, Panerai, Bell & Ross watches that require a beefy strap to go with the hefty cases of those watches. The straps are made with wider keepers, and a Pre-V style buckle. We prefer to craft Chunky styles with veg-tan leather that evokes a rustic vibe.

Recommended for Panerai, Bell & Ross, diver watches.

Thickness: 3.0mm

Stitching: Full stitching, 3.85mm width

Thread: 0.55mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Wide buckle / Oval strap hole

Chunky Signature

Similar to our Chunky style, the Chunky Signature is made for heftier watches. The Chunky Signature has an added padding compared to the Chunky. Due to the leather padding used, these straps are typically stiffer initially, but quickly break in with just a few hours of wear. The padding, coupled with the increased overall thickness, gives the strap a very sturdier feel.

Recommended for Panerai, Bell & Ross, diver watches.

Thickness: 5.5mm tapered to 3.0mm

Stitching: Full stitching, 3.85mm width

Thread: 0.55mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Wide buckle / Oval strap hole

Stripe

The Stripe style was born out of a desire to create a new and unique style of strap that also brings attention to the strap, and not just the watch. Made with three different stripes of leather (the middle stripe is not painted on), it allows you to combine multiple leather together onto one strap, creating an endless combination of texture and colours. The process of crafting such a strap is not to be understated. It requires extreme precision to get a uniform thickness across all the different layers of leather, and seamlessly blend them together into one single strap with no discernable transition between the layers.

For a completely unique look, switch up the stitching, edge paint and keeper colours. You are guaranteed to have a strap that will bring some attention to your wrist - just don't blame us if it overshadows the watch!

Recommended if you want a unique strap that matches the colours on your watch.

Thickness: 2.2mm

Stitching: All round, 2.7mm.

Thread: 0.35mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Pilot

Our Pilot straps are modelled after the original pilot straps that were found on German WW II pilot watches, also known as “Beobachtungsuhren” or “B-Uhren” (observation watches). These straps come with two brushed steel rivets towards the lug, along with a sharp taper after the rivets, and ending with a trapezium strap end style with an additional decorative stitching, true to the original Pilot strap.

Recommend for Pilot/Aviator style watches (e.g. IWC).

Note: Lug taper has to be at least 4mm (eg. 22-18mm) to have the sharp taper in the strap.

Thickness: 2.5mm

Stitching: Box stitching, 2.7mm width. Additional decorative box stitching at trapezium strap end.

Thread: 0.35mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Rally Side-Stitch

Rally Side-Stitch straps are inspired from the motorsports industry, where holes are punched in various parts to reduce weight. On a strap, apart from being a lighter strap, it also allows for greater airflow and breathability. Plus, the aesthetics of a Rally strap is pretty cool.

Our Rally style is made with a recurring pattern of two small holes on the side, with one larger hole in the middle. Minimal stitching is used to keep the strap clean.

Recommend for Chronograph/Racing style watches (e.g. Speedmaster).

Thickness: 2.5mm

Stitching: Two stitches at lug and buckle area only

Thread: 0.55mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Rally Slim

Rally Side-Stitch straps are inspired from the motorsports industry, where holes are punched in various parts to reduce weight. On a strap, apart from being a lighter strap, it also allows for greater airflow and breathability. Plus, the aesthetics of a Rally strap is pretty cool.

Our Rally style is made with a recurring pattern of two small holes on the side, with one larger hole in the middle. Full stitching along the sides for those that prefer this aesthetic.

Recommend for Chronograph/Racing style watches (e.g. Speedmaster).

Thickness: 2.5mm

Stitching: Full stitching, 2.7mm width.

Thread: 0.55mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Rally Two-Tone

We wanted to have a little fun and play with colours, and the Rally Two-Tone style was born. The idea is to have two colours present on the strap. The primary colour would be the colour of the top leather, while the secondary colour would be the colour of the stitching, padding, keeper and edge paint. Unlike a normal Rally strap, the holes do not go all the way through the strap. Instead, they are only present on the top leather, showcasing the padding colour underneath.

Recommended if you want a unique strap that matches the colours on your watch.

Thickness: 4.5mm tapered to 2.2mm.

Stitching: All round, 2.7mm.

Thread: 0.35mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Rallye

Rallye straps come with a series of large circular holes cut out in the middle of the strap, which gives a very striking look. Due to the endless possibilities with the size of the holes and the spacing between the holes, these straps are only offered as a custom strap.

Recommended for Chronograph/Racing style watches (e.g. Speedmaster)

Thickness: 2.2mm

Stitching: All round, 2.7mm.

Thread: 0.35mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole

Single Pass

Single Pass straps are similar to a NATO strap, except that it's made with just one single piece of layer, hence keeping the bulk to a minimum. This strap is meant to fit underneath the spring bars, providing greater security if one bar was to fail and fall off compared to a traditional strap.

Another benefit of a Single Pass strap is that you can choose to wear the strap on its own, as an accessory, even without any watch!

Recommend if you like the aesthetic of a single pass/NATO strap.

Thickness: 1.8mm

Stitching: All round, 2.7mm.

Thread: 0.35mm linen thread

Buckle/Strap Holes: Regular buckle / Round strap hole
