Royal Blue Alcantara Signature Strap
Chat with us now
Alcantara material from Italy is a cutting-edge material that offers unparalleled aesthetic, technical and sensory qualities. While it is most similar to suede and microfiber, it would be inaccurate to categorise Alcantara as any of those material. It is most commonly used in the interior of luxury cars, but its uses has since expanded to everyday goods like wallets, card holders, phone covers, bags etc. It is extremely soft to the touch, and provides a very luxurious feel when made into a strap.
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.
Also available in these colours
We already know Delugs straps are well made, so I’ll dive into the finer details.
What I love is the attention to details even down to the nomenclature. To differentiate between the blues, most people would probably just go navy vs. light blue. Not Delugs. This Royal Blue is every bit as majestic as I excepted. A deep blue.
Then there’s the feel of Alcantara, very plush and soft to touch, the kind of strap you can wear all day without wrist fatigue. (Yes that’s a thing).
It is perfect.
Having purchased from Delugs on a number of occasions before, of course it's first in mind when it's time for me to find a replacement strap for the moonswatch. I was looking for something that is colourful, cheerful, at the same time exhibits simplicity in one package. I ordered the Alcantara in Royal Blue, and Voilla - it was such as excellent pairing, with the "consistent" quality of Delugs that I have come to expect. Highly recommended.
