From United States


I had an original 1940s USA made slip through watch strap that I loved to wear, but it was on its last leg. The style was classic and comfortable, so I recreated the strap and pad to hold my vintage watches and a few of yours.
Made by me in my Monrovia California workshop from high-quality ~1.2mm black Shell Cordovan leather.
Hand-stitched with top-quality German cord.
5/8” width to fit Elgin, Bulova, and Waltham military issue ORD watches. Great for Rolex bubbleback too.
9” measured end to end not counting the stainless steel buckle.
Fits a wrist approximately 6.5to 7.25”.
Shorter and longer lengths available, as well as different colors of leather and stitching. NOS vintage buckles also available.
Drop a note for options, I’d love to make a strap for you to enjoy for years.
