Our Dollaro Slim strap is for those that want your strap to be just a little different. With its pebbled grain surface, and the two-tone colour, the Dollaro Slim pairs effortlessly with vintage watches, and feels equally at home on modern timepieces.
Dollaro leather is the cousin of Buttero leather. They are both from the same Italian tannery, Conceria Walpier. They are both veg-tanned leather that has the authentic leather look, colours, feel and smell (trust us on this - this strap smells FANTASTIC). Yet they are pretty different in look - one is a buttery smooth leather while the other has been tumbled as its tanned to create this textured look. This results in a strap that has a unique two-tone look. The valleys of the grain are a lighter shade of colour, while the peaks of the grain are a darker shade. Dollaro is also unique in that while it is a veg-tan leather, which typically are prone to scratches and wear over time, it is incredibly scratch resistant and can hold its own pretty well.
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!
Note: Any custom variants are made-to-order and will take a few weeks before they are sent out!
Straps in the Slim 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.
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
