As part of our long-running strap showcase series, we take a closer look at sailcloth straps with plenty of pictures for inspiration

Finding a waterproof, rugged, strap which also really enhances the look of your watch is no mean feat. Fortunately, your search is over.

Welcome to the world of the sailcloth straps!

The sailcloth is one of the finest quality and most versatile straps we have produced and offers a sophisticated look which technically achieves the enviable status of a single strap that fulfils almost all needs.

The characteristics are impressive:

  • Sailcloth material, which is soft from new, is renowned for its strong and durable properties
  • A superior waterproof alternative to leather which has been expertly finished with a rembord edge
  • Vivid contrast colour stitching to complement dial features
  • Brushed steel or PVD black buckle
  • Padded, flat or perforated strap styles

The Sailcloth strap looks stylish and functional on a vast range of watches, not just divers. But don’t just take our word for it - have a look at a selection of our favourite watches below - which show the Sailcloth off to its very best.

This strap also makes a great alternative to a leather strap, as it has been superbly finished with a "rembord" edge, making it clean and seamless for a fresh traditional style. It is available in four lug widths and is 4.3mm thick at the lug ends and reduces to 3.2mm at the buckle end. It has a more pronounced taper than the standard ZULUDIVER sailcloth and features a less aggressive buckle. You can choose between subtly contrasting off-white or grey stitching.
