During Time to Watches 2024, Laco unveiled their Kiel Sport model. Acting as the perfect bridge between Laco’s two families of watches (their vintage Flieger’s and Squad watches), the Laco Kiel Sport offers the best of Laco’s capabilities in one holistic package. You can read more about the specifications of the Laco Kiel Sport in Richard’s review but today our focus is on strap choices. 

Best Straps for the Laco Kiel Sport

When dealing with such a good all-rounder, it’s important to source replacement strap options that feel just as versatile as the timepiece itself.

In the WatchGecko catalogue we have a huge range of replacement straps to suit the Kiel Sport. From classic leather options to sportier nylon, we’ve pulled together our top choices for wear with the new Laco model.

Kicking off with a timeless leather option, the Laverton Padded Patina strap. This premium replacement strap option is meticulously handcrafted at a family-run workshop in Belgium. Luxuriously soft, even from the first wear, the Laverton strap has undergone thorough testing to ensure exquisite quality every time.

Our Laverton strap is crafted using the finest Patina leather which is distinguishable from traditional calf leather by its vintage, earthy appearance. The Laverton is full of character without sacrificing durability and thanks to its oiled finish a beautifully aged aesthetic has been achieved. The patina of the leather perfectly highlights the vintage aesthetic of the Kiel Sport and the Blue colourway in particular ties in subtly with its thermally blued hands.

It’s rare that we showcase straps without considering an option from the Highley range, and that’s for good reason. As a consistent WatchGecko customer favourite, the Highley has become something of a staple for us and for that reason has now evolved into a collection of three different editions.

The Original Vintage Highley, as the name suggests, is the original best-seller that started the craze. Thickly padded (6mm at the lug end) and made from the finest Italian vegetable-tanned, full-grain leather, the Original Vintage Highley is well-suited to a variety of mid-size to large watches and incorporates quick-release spring bars for easy changes.

The Original Vintage Highley comes in an array of classic leather colour options, but for those looking for something a little bolder, Blue and Reef have recently been added to the collection. The oiled pull-up leather is made to age with grace and will pick up patina over time, making this a great option for some authentic vintage charm.

Our last leather strap option for the Laco Kiel Sport is our Simple Handmade Italian Leather Watch Strap. A popular choice for those who enjoy simplicity and quality, the Simple Handmade strap stands up to a great deal of wear whilst retaining its timeless classic charm. The Simple Handmade is a truly versatile option with its subtly double stitched edges that ensure nothing detracts from the star of the show – your watch.

Made using certified vegetable-tanned, full-grain Italian leather, our Simple Handmade straps are crafted by hand at one of the most notorious tannery consortiums in Tuscany where high-quality is non-negotiable. Made to develop patina over time, the Simple Handmade strap is a great choice for highlighting the vintage charm of the Laco Kiel Sport.

Whether you’re at the office, on the beach, or hiking rough terrain, the Ridge keeps your watch secure even in the event of a spring bar failure. The perfect option for stylishly complementing the Laco Kiel Sport’s classic vintage look without compromising on quality or strength.
