7 COLORS - Natural Shell Cordovan Leather NATO Strap
You're looking at a Nato strap constructed with the highest quality leather available, Shinki Hikaku shell cordovan leather. Our shell cordovan is split to 1.1mm thick to fit most watches, it also allows the end of the strap to be folded back into the strap keepers. Each and every strap is saddle stitched by hand to ensure maximum durability. The edges of the strap are beveled then hand burnished. Thanks to dense fibers of shell cordovan, these straps have minimal stretch which makes them incredibly durable.
Our shell cordovan is available in 7 colors, check out the last photo of the listing!
Tan would be used unless stated. Black, white and other thread colors options are also available, please contact me for availability.
Total Length: 27.5 cm (10 stops)
Thickness: 1.1 mm
Please make sure has enough lug clearance to install these straps before purchasing. If your watch has minimal clearance, we could further split the leather to a thickness of about 1.1 to 1.2mm, thanks to the dense fibers of shell cordovan leather. Just send us a conversation if you need anything thinner.
About the leather:
Shell cordovan is an equine leather made from the fibrous flat muscle (or shell) beneath the hide on the rump of the horse. Since the shell's fibers are the densest among the hide, shell cordovan is known for it's strength and flexibility.

Great work as always Colin. The strap is beautifully made and will surely develop a nice patina. I got it to match my card holder in natural shinki shell :)
