Natural Leather Tapered "Heritage" Watch Strap for Panerai Watches
Our "Heritage" watch strap designed for Panerai watches is constructed of natural Hermann Oak vegetable tanned leather. The edge creases and the box stitch on the watch strap stay true to the original design of the original military issued Panerai leather straps used by frogmen and divers.

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"
A tapered watch strap means the watch strap is tapered from the lugs towards the buckle and the strap tip. Take width 24/22 mm as an example, the width of the strap at the lugs, where it is installed on the watch is 24 mm. On the other end, the width of the watch strap at the buckle and the tip of the strap are tapered down to 22 mm.

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.
