Key Features

  • Made from Minerva Box top-grain leather produced in Tuscany, Italy.

  • Thickness: 3.8mm tapering to 2.8mm at the buckle.
  • The strap features a cut edge, which has been painted for a seamless finish and to prevent moisture penetration.

About The Minerva Box Leather

The Besford is made from Minerva Box leather sourced from the renowned Badalassi Carlo tannery in Tuscany, Italy. The Minerva Box leather is a tumbled vegetable-tanned leather which has a natural grain. This means that the texture of the leather will vary slightly from strap to strap. Overall, Minerva Box is one of the best vegetable-tanned leathers in the world, and it makes for a supple and richly coloured strap.

The lining is Zermatt calf leather from Tanneries Haas in France, who have been tanning leather since 1842. Zermatt is a mineral tanned calfskin in the top grade, and is hypoallergenic and exceptionally smooth, so it’s perfect for a watch strap lining.
