  • Note that we are discontinuing this strap will not be restocking. Sorry about that!

    Our side-stitch watch strap in Italian Veg Tan is the first item in our Side-Stitch line. The strap is made with just a single piece of leather, keeping the watch strap slim. This is perfect if you prefer a lower profile for your straps.

    We decided to use veg tan leather from Italy for this strap, with 5 different colour options. Being veg-tanned means that the strap is stiff to begin with, but within a few days of wear it will mould to the shape of the wearer's wrist. If you look really closely at each strap, you can see the beautiful pores and grain of the leather. That's how you know it's quality that will last you a lifetime.

    All watch straps will come with a silver 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!

  • Construction here is kept simple. A single piece of leather, 3mm thick. To hold the lug pins and buckle, the leather is skived to half the thickness and folded over on itself, before being stitched down. This keeps the thickness of the strap uniform throughout. The straps are then creased at the edges to give a nice, decorative line. Finally, the edges are burnished to seal the edges, which protects the leather from wear and tear, and water damage, over time.

Value for money

The strap is look tough and trust it last.

Best $40 I've ever spent.

This strap is worth every penny. It's not fancy, it's rustic and simple, and it's very well made. Nice and stiff at first and breaks in very nicely. The black is smooth with a touch of shine and the stitches are a perfect cream color. Very well done.

Beautiful strap!!!!

Excellent quality, a must have!!!!
