Our new line of padded leather watch straps is now available at WatchGecko
WatchGecko is proud to present our new range of padded leather watch straps, which we call the Stanton collection. Our new line of Stanton padded watch straps combines a variety of premium quality Minerva Box leather as well as suede leather straps sourced from tanneries in Tuscany, Italy.
Our Stanton leather straps take on a classic padded design, with a contrasting stitch and quick-release spring bars. These straps are available in both 20mm and 22mm lug widths with a 4mm taper towards the buckle. Our Minerva Box strap options use a tumbled vegetable-tanned leather with a natural grain for a richly coloured and exceptionally supple strap, while our suede leather options are incredibly tactile and a timeless choice for those looking to dress down their watch.
To showcase the new Stanton range we've put together a Strap Showcase, pairing these leather watch straps with the likes of Tudor, Omega and Seiko.
Padded leather watch strap for Omega Speedmaster
To complement the monotone greys and blacks of the Omega Speedmaster we've opted for the suede Stanton strap in light grey. The soft and tactile texture of the strap dresses down the Speedmaster for a more casual-friendly look which helps balance out the reflective shine of the crystal and case.
Padded leather watch strap for Tudor Black Bay 58
We've paired our Tudor Black Bay 58 with the Stanton leather strap in black, which has some natural brown undertones in the leather that brings out the brassy tones of the dial while remaining understated and sophisticated.
For a more muted look, we've also paired the Black Bay 58 with a suede strap in taupe.
Padded leather watch strap for Tudor Black Bay GMT
For our Tudor Black Bay GMT we wanted a watch strap that compliments the blue and red Pepsi bezel, opting for a suede padded leather strap in midnight blue. The rich dark blue really makes the bezel pop and the soft suede texture compliments the matte dial finish.
Padded leather watch strap for Seiko Prospex Captain Willard
The steel case of the Seiko Prospex Captain Willard has quite a presence on the wrist, showing off a rugged design in all its metal. Pairing this case with a dark brown padded strap highlights this masculine look with a well-aged appeal. The natural grain of this strap also gives the watch some needed texture, balancing out the cold brushed steel of its wide flowing turtle case.
