A fantastic vintage style racing watch strap made from vegetable-tanned top grain calf leather, made by hand at our partner's workshop in Valencia, Spain.
Delicately hand-painted with coloured stains and wax for an authentic vintage look, the strap is crafted to a high standard with extra care to make sure the edge is painted in black for a clean finish. The same skills are used to make hand-made vintage brogue shoes.
Please note as this is a genuine hand-painted process there will be variations between the watch straps. The top of the strap is painted to give a unique vintage appearance.
Lined with Arizona top grain leather, this strap is breathable, practical and comfortable to wear. No padding is added for a sleek and vintage feel, and the strap has been carefully stitched with durable contrasting beige thread.
For style and added comfort, the punched pattern of perforations echoes the design language of the leather driver's gloves that were worn all those years ago. Similarly, larger perforations allude to racing car components that were perforated to be lighter and gain critical fractions of a second while lapping Spa or the Targa Florio course in Sicily.
The straps are fitted with a high-quality solid stainless-steel buckle for an exquisite vintage look and are available in several distinctive colours.
The watch strap has a tapered width and is thinner at the buckle than the lug end as follows:
18mm lug / 14mm buckle
19mm lug / 16mm buckle
20mm lug / 16mm buckle
22mm lug / 18mm buckle

The ‘lug width’ is simply the internal width measured between the lugs (where the watch strap fits) of the watch.
