Natural Leather Minimalist Watch Strap for Apple Watch
You're looking at a minimalist watch strap constructed of thick 6 oz Italian natural vegetable-tanned leather and a solid brushed stainless steel buckle. The leather of the strap is slightly tapered towards the buckle of the strap to improve comfortability. The strap is available for various Apple Watch sizes. An Apple Watch strap adapter and a screwdriver for removing the leather strap will be included. You may choose between silver, black, and gold hardware for the strap. Being constructed with a single piece of thick leather, the strap will never split or fray like other straps with a glued-on lining. The strap is hand-stitched with durable polyester thread. The edges are burnished and beveled to achieve a smooth edge finish.
**38mm and 40mm, 42mm and 44mm hardware are interchangeable, but the newer 40mm and 44mm hardware are designed to sit flush with the newer Apple Watch cases. Please choose according to the size of your Apple Watch.
~2.4 mm, 1.2 mm at the lugs
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", 5 stops, and each 7.5 mm apart.
Medium: 120/75mm fits wrists approximately 6 1/2" to 7 1/2", 7 stops, and each 7.5 mm apart.
Large: 135/80mm fits wrists approximately 7 1/4" to 8 1/4", 7 stops, and each 7.5 mm apart.
The default thread color is tan color. Available in nine other colors, please refer to the last photo. Please leave a note during checkout if you would like a different thread color.
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 painted, 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.
