If you're looking for a watch strap that's soft and comfortable to wear from Day 1 to the end of days, and with a wide range of colours to match your outfit or personality, the Epsom Slim watch strap is perfect for you. At only 2mm thick, this strap is extremely pliable and wraps around your wrist easily.
Whether you want an Epsom strap for formal wear (black/brown Epsom) or something a little more fun (any of the pastel shades) for your time piece, this strap has you covered. You can even get a few of them to mix and match - swapping out straps has never been easier with the integrated quick release spring bars.
Note: These straps will be made to order and thus require a lead time of a month before it is shipped out to you. We hope you understand - good work takes good time!
Epsom: If you want a strap that has a beautiful texture, good scratch and water resistance, and remains looking pristine even after many wear, Epsom is the right choice. Epsom from Tanneries Du Puy in France is well-known for its quality, wide range of colours and perfect rigidity. It is the same leather that is used in many Hermes products.
There are up to 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.
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.
First things first: this strap was MTO. I asked for a specific length, and then I decided that maybe I should try something different and asked if they were still able to change it, and they did (which was very accommodating). It’s the best fitting, the most flexible, and the most versatile strap I own. It feels wonderful, the white contrasting stitching is lovely, and the taper is very very well done. I highly recommend this type of leather from Delugs because it WILL be the most used strap in your collection. I absolutely love it. I will likely buy another color combination or style in the future because it’s worth it.
I was searching high and low for the right strap after acquiring my vintage Omega. Hoping to find something as similar to the original as possible. The Epsom Slim from Delugs is perfect! Customised to size 18/16 just so I can still fit in to its original buckle with no additional cost to it!! Although it took quite a while to reach me due to CMBF sales and holiday seasons but trust me, the strap is definitely worth the wait. It's slim, classy and so soft that it doesn't require any break in to fit comfortably. And it looks like it's gonna last me quite a while. Thanks Delugs Team for prompt customer service and the nice packaging. Keep up the great work!
I love the blue epsom strap, I paired it with a few different watches with blue or hints of blue in the dial and it really enhances the overall look. The French leather feels great, the texture is consistent and the strap is beautifully made. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact them, they are a very helpful and responsive company!
