Natural Shell Cordovan Signature Watch Strap

Size Guide
  • Our signature watch strap in Shell Cordovan is the first line that we are bringing to the watch community. Each strap is padded, lined and stitched, using one of the most luxurious leathers known to leathercrafters. You'd expect your watches to last a lifetime - the straps shouldn't be any different. 

    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!

    Note: Small and Large straps, as well as straps with custom lug sizes, are made-to-order and will take around 4 weeks before it is shipped out.

  • The main leather used is Shell Cordovan from Shinki Hikaku tannery in Japan. The lining leather used is French goat leather that matches the colour of the Shell Cordovan.

    See here for more details on the leather we use, because calling them "full grain leather" or "genuine leather" on its own does not do it justice.

  • For our Signature series, 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.
    Small: 14.9cm - 18.4cm
    Medium: 16.3cm - 20.5cm
