The Besford is a premium strap which is handmade from top-grain Minerva Box leather from the Badalassi Carlo tannery in Italy. The leather is incredibly rich in colour, and the contrasting edge stitching only serves to enhance its appearance.

With its classic design the Besford is an excellent all-rounder that will suit a variety of watches, be they for dress or diving. Whatever you put the Besford on, you can be assured that it will wear very comfortably thanks to the high-quality leather, which is both smooth and supple.

Key Features

  • Made from Minerva Box top-grain leather produced in Tuscany, Italy.
  • Length: 115/75mm
  • 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.
