If you want to instantly class up your timepiece and get it ready for a dressed up occasion, pair it with a Black Crocodile and you are ready. There's a reason why so many dress watches on the market come stock with a Black Crocodile strap - because it works. Go with a handcrafted, Niloticus crocodile strap and not some embossed pattern, because it isn't the same and you know it.
All watch straps will come with our Delugs tang buckle and quick release bars, so that you can easily swap out between your favourite watch straps and not have to fuss about scratching your watch lugs. No one will judge you for changing straps every day! And of course, all our straps are handcrafted by highly skilled artisans, to craft the straps that you watch deserves.
Straps in the Signature collection have the whole shebang. There are a total of 4 layers of various material that goes into each strap, with each layer serving a specific purpose. From top to bottom, they are: (1) exterior leather, (2) padding, (3) synthetic strengthener, (4) lining leather.
All layers are firstly glued and pressed together, before they are stitched. Finally, the edges are finished with edge paint, which adds an additional layer along the exposed edges of leather and protects it from wear and tear, and water damage, over time. This also prevents the different layers from separating - an additional layer of prevention on top of the stitching.
Lug Width: Find out the lug width of your watch mode. You can do this by searching the following "(watch model) lug width" in Google. Once you know the lug width (for e.g. 20mm), select the 20/18 variant for the lug width. 20 refers to the lug width, while 18 refers to the buckle width. Our straps come with a taper because it looks classier than straight straps.
Size: Not sure what size (length) to get for the straps? There are two methods to determine this.Method 1: If you have an existing strap on your watch, measure the long and short straps, sum up the lengths, and choose the variant (Small or Medium) that is the closest to the total length of your existing straps. For example, if your existing straps measure 105mm on the long strap and 80mm on the short strap, the total length is 185mm. The closest variant would be Medium (115mm/70mm = 185mm). Note that this is still an approximation, and you should adjust accordingly if your current strap does not fit your wrist perfectly.
Method 2: If your existing watch does not have a normal strap (you have a bracelet on), you would need to measure your wrist size and purchase the strap size according to the guidelines below. If you are between sizes (for e.g. wrist size of 17.5cm), we recommend to size up.
This strap feels great on the wrist, the quality is top notch. Quick release pins make it so easy to switch. Given that its a signature strap, it has a filling, which only stretches about halfway. I wish it would go all the way but I understand it's likely not possible with a tapered strap, which in my case is 19mm to 16mm
Purchased several alligator straps from Delugs and the repeat purchases speak a lot about my level of satisfaction. The default alligator belly straps are super of exceptional quality and totally uplift the level of class in my watches. Suddenly they feel like million-dollar worth.
Subsequently, I tried to be creative with Delugs and did some patterns from Alligator flanks. Voila.. it completely swept me off my feet and it brought a whole new level of game and style to my watches.
This is the level of quality and class as good as bespoke but a fraction of the price.
I couldn't have given more praises in my review and certainly would continue to purchase again.
Ordered a custom strap and Kenneth was very helpful in recommending the style and colour. The whole transaction was very pleasant and the final product didn’t disappoint! The colour shade match the watch dial perfectly, workmanship is superb and leather is soft and supple. I couldn’t be more satisfied!
Thanks so much delugs! Will definitely come back for more :)
The ordering process was easy and any questions I had were answered via WhatsApp with quick replies, which was very helpful. The quality of the custom black alligator strap I bought was really really good. Stitching was nice and leather quality was great. 10/10 would order again. Since I ordered a custom strap, it took some time to come especially since it’s international shipping, but that was well worth the wait! Thanks Delugs!
