Our new line of racing style leather watch straps is now available at WatchGecko
Our new line of Beaufort leather watch straps offers a selection of perforated leather racing style straps in both high-quality top-grain Minerva Box leather and suede leather from the Badalassi Tannery in Tuscany, Italy.
This new line of leather replacement watch straps features an iconic racing style design, with a contrasting stitch and quick-release spring bars. The Beaufort straps use a tumbled vegetable-tanned leather with a natural grain for a richly coloured and supple strap, while the suede leather options are incredibly tactile and a timeless choice for those looking to dress down their watch.
Leather watch strap for Omega Speedmaster
We've paired our Omega Speedmaster Professional with a Light Grey suede leather strap from Beaufort to complement the greys and blacks of the dial. The suede strap also brings some texture to the otherwise smooth and reflective case. The suede option helps dress down the Omega Speedmaster, for more of a tool watch appeal that feels casual for everyday wear.
If you're looking for something dressier, we also paired a leather strap for the Omega Speedmaster in a rich Dark Brown. The natural grain and shine of this strap give the Seamaster a finely aged appeal that's classic and formal.
Leather watch strap for Tudor Black Bay
To complement the Pepsi bezel of the Tudor Black Bay GMT we opted for the suede strap in Midnight Blue, a deep and vivid blue strap. The matte of the suede works well with the matte dial of this watch, bringing out the polished shine of the case.
For a smarter look, we've paired our Tudor Black Bay 58 with our Olive Green leather strap, with a vintage-looking texture and olive shades that bring out the brass tones of the dial.
Leather watch strap for Sinn 356
To go with the Pilot watch appeal of the Sinn 356 we opted for a suede strap in a muted Forest Green, as shades of forest green are a go-to choice when it comes to tactical or military watches. The case of the Sinn 356 has a blasted finish that pairs well with a matte textured strap and the contrasting stitching of the Beaufort complements the lumed hands and Arabic numerals.
Leather watch strap for Boldr Venture
Not only does the grain effect dial call for a natural grain leather pairing, but the neutral colours of the Boldr Venture have a vintage appeal, that we thought goes well with the Coral Beaufort strap, reminding me of the kind of leather used in the leather driving gloves of the '60s.
Leather watch strap for FORZO
Taking the vintage racing theme, a step further we paired the same Coral Beaufort strap with our FORZO Drive King Chronograph, a racing-inspired watch design with a cream and green colour scheme that looks the perfect match for this vintage-style racing strap.
For our last pairing, we've gone for another Drive King by FORZO, in an all-black and metallic colourway strapped to the Beaufort leather strap in Dark Brown. The strap highlights the racing style of this chronograph watch while breaking up the black colourway with some natural brown shades.
