Crazy Horse is the perfect vintage, rustic leather. The leather has a slightly sanded look with a pull-up effect. It has a lot of character to begin with, which will only increase as you wear and use the strap. This leather will pick up scratches and marks, but those will also fade away and blend together with the rest of the leather.
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.
These straps are made to be used with Panerai Luminor watches. The spring bars that come with this strap are specially developed to be used with Panerai Luminor watches that normally require a screw-in bar to be used. Click here to see a video of how the spring bars work.
Do note that there is an extra hole for the quick release knob punched at the back of the long end of the strap (see last photo). This is purely cosmetic and has no impact on durability.
Straps in the Chunky collection have a total of 3 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) synthetic strengthener, (3) lining leather. This style is recommended for larger watches like Panerai or divers.
All layers are firstly glued and pressed together, before they are stitched. Finally, the edges are finished with a simple burnish and kept looking raw, to retain that vintage look.
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.
