Navy Chevre Slim Strap
Chat with us now
Chevre leather from Alran tannery is most often used in small leather goods. The beauty of Alran Chevre is in the texture and grain. It has a slight pebbled texture that is very smooth to the touch, making any product immediately look luxurious. Compared to Epsom, the pebbled surface on Chevre is formed naturally from the raw goat leather and the tanning process, and not embossed on. It also has finer pebbled grain patterns compared to Epsom, and is slightly shiny. Similar to Epsom, Chevre also has very strong water and scratch-resistant properties.
Excerpt from Strap Guide by Samuel: "This strap stands out with its luxurious texture and grain. The leather comes from the Alran tannery, and it’s often used in small leather goods. The strap is very smooth and soft, and it has a beautiful pebbled texture. This grain pattern is more delicate than Epsom, and you can really feel the difference. You can dress up a watch with this strap, and that’s why I always choose it when I’m wearing a suit."
Strap Length Guide
There are two sides per strap, which we refer to as the long end and the short end, which are represented by C and D respectively in the diagram below.
Our handcrafted leather straps come in 3 different lengths.
- Small (C: 105mm, D: 65mm)
- Medium (C: 115mm, D: 70mm)
- Large (C: 125mm, D: 75mm)
A quick way to decide on the length to get is based on your wrist size. Here is the general recommendation (if you are between sizes, we recommend to size up):
- Wrist size of 14.5cm - 17.0cm: Small
- Wrist size of 16.5cm - 19.0cm : Medium
- Wrist size of 18.5cm - 21.0cm: Large
If you need a strap that is shorter than Small (105/65), or longer than Large (125/75), you can always have the strap custom made.
|A||Lug width||Varies by lug width
(see product listing)
|C||Long strap length||105mm||115mm||125mm|
|D||Short strap length||65mm||70mm||75mm|
|E||Distance to middle hole||63mm||71mm||81mm|
|F||Distance between holes||6mm|
|G||Size of holes||1.8mm|
|Number of Strap Holes||7||7||7|
Hope this quick guide helps! Finding the perfect length to get can be a little bit more complicated, as it also depends on the lug-to-lug distance of your watch, and even the shape of your wrist. For a more detailed guide on sizing, please check out this page.
Find Your Lug Width
If you're looking to purchase a strap for your watch, you will need to know the lug width of your watch. Lug width refers to "A" in this schematic below.
There are two ways to find out the lug width of your watch.
- Firstly, you can Google "<watch brand and model> lug width" and see if there is an answer from the brand's website, or some other websites.
- Alternatively, you can simply take a ruler and measure the lug width directly on your watch.
Lug widths are typically in whole numbers, and while the most common lug widths are between 18-22mm, they can go down to 8mm or up to 32mm even. Our ready stock straps are available in 16mm, 17mm, 18mm, 19mm, 20mm, 21mm, 22mm, 24mm and 26mm. If you need other lug widths, you can have it custom made.
You will then need to purchase a strap of the same lug width. For example, if your watch has a lug width of 20mm, you will need to purchase strap with a width of 20-16.
Note: Our Widths typically have two numbers, for example 20-16. The first number (20) refers to the lug width ("A" in the schematic above). The second number (16) refers to the buckle width ("B" in the schematic above). You just need to ensure that the first number matches the lug width of your watch.

Very happy with my new strap. Wears very easily strap out of the pack. No break in period. Website provides an accurate representation. Easy change strap system is a winner. Highly recommended.
I love the texture and the thickness of it, thank you very much!
Fantastic material in person, the navy chèvre exhibits great color and a soft sturdy feel in hand. Already grabbing another color!
