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 2.2mm thick, this strap is extremely pliable and wraps around your wrist easily. Epsom Slim strap is perfect for both the office and bar - the one strap for all your needs.
If you want a strap that has a beautiful texture, good scratch and water resistance, and continues looking pristine even with repeated use, 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.
Excerpt from Strap Guide by Tom: "The versatility of an Epsom leather strap is something truly special. It will dress up a sports watch and it will dress down a dress watch. A tightly grained leather that was popularized by it's use in Hermès' Birkin bag. A leather that barely ages and that has good water and scratch resistance. On a Tank, I think it adds an element of leisure. The Taupe color goes with almost anything, but I particularly love it when it's integrated with an outfit like this."
Note: This strap comes with curved lugs. Read more about whether you need a curved strap here.
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.
