Natural Leather Basic Watch Strap (18, 20, 22 and 24 mm)
You are looking at a hand-stitched watch strap constructed of natural Italian vegetable-tanned calf leather and a brushed stainless steel buckle. The watch strap is about 3 mm thick, has 7 stops (each 7.5 mm apart) and two keepers (one floating, one fixed). Edges are beveled and hand-burnished to achieve a smooth finishing.
White-colored thread as in the photos would be used unless stated. Tan and other thread colors are also available, please contact me for availability.
The size of a two-piece watch strap like this one is measured separately. Take medium size as an example: 120 / 75mm, 120 mm represents the length of the longer side of the strap, from the watch lug to the tip on the strap. While 75 mm represents the shorter side of the strap, from the watch lugs to where the leather ends (not including buckle).
To determine which strap size suits you, you may measure your old watch strap and choose a length similar to the strap you are currently using. Or, you may measure your wrist and refer to the sizes below:
Small: 105/70mm fits wrists approximately 5 3/4" to 6 3/4"
Medium: 120/75mm fits wrists approximately 6 1/2" to 7 1/2"
Large: 135/80mm fits wrists approximately 7 1/4" to 8 1/4"

About the leather:
Made from wonderfully tanned vegetable tanned cow leather. Vegetable tanning is a traditional way of tanning using tannic acids naturally found from plant species. The natural appearance before, has a slightly brownish tinge over a beige color, with a natural, woody, and earthy smell. Due to the nature of the tannins, a unique patina will develop and "carmelize" over time.

Really nice product. The leather is very high quality, and will darken and develop a richer color with time. Definitely a keeper.
