Watch straps made to fit your watch. Available in different sizes and colours.

Made from British oak bark tanned Devon cowhide - a very traditional and hard-wearing leather.

Each strap comes with a stainless steel buckle. Colour choices are brass, steel or black. Please choose which buckle style you'd like when ordering.

The straps attach to your watch using standard pins that slide through a hole at the end of each strap and click into the lugs on your watch.

If you're struggling to attach the strap yourself then you can always call in at your local watch strap shop on the high street and they'll fit it for a very small fee.

Or you can send me your watch and I'll attach the strap for you as part of the service!

Please measure the width of strap that you need by measuring the space on your watch where the strap will attach. You can provide this measurement in a note at the checkout.

The oak bark tanned leather is made in the only remaining oak bark tannery in the UK. The ancient process uses oak bark harvested in Wales and up the road in Cumbria. The oak trees, typically about 10 years old, are coppiced in late spring when the sap is rising so that the bark can be easily peeled from the trunk. Coppicing is the art of cutting hardwood trees down to ground level and then allowing them to regrow naturally. An old and sustainable method of woodland management. The stripped timber is then used for furniture making, charcoal production and other coppicing crafts.

I also make a strap with a cuff - see my other listing: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/593292395

All my products are made by me in my small workshop in the northwest of England, UK. I sometimes have a lot of orders on my waiting list so please allow 2 or 3 weeks for me to make and post it. When you place you're order I'll be in touch soon to let you know when it will be ready. And please feel free to send me an Etsy message if you've any questions or would like something a little different.

Why not add my leather balm to your basket too, to nourish and protect your leather so it last for many more years?

I received my notebook cover a few weeks ago and I'm absolutely delighted. I waited a few weeks to review as I wanted to ensure the quality beforehand; I can now happily say it is exceptionally high. The stitching is neat and hardwearing.The edges have been finished well - there is no roughness. The colour (in terms of saturation, trueness to the website photo and durability) is rich and durable - I've bought items in the past in which the dye has worn in a few weeks or has rubbed off onto other things in my bag. I also asked for a few extras when I was ordering, such as my initials stamped on the strap, a custom size and extra stitching- Tony's made a wonderful job of it. The debossing on the strap is crisp and deep and the custom size fits my day diary perfectly. I'm absolutely delighted with it. Thank you Tony!

A very attractive handmade item. Quality leather and nicely stitched together. Shipped with an A5 hardback sketchbook. I'm using it with my own softback ruled notebook (for which I bought the cover) and it closes and stays flat. Thank you!

I contacted Tony for a custom key wallet for my husband, he responded to my inquiry right away. I received a notification once the item was shipped and I was pleasantly surprised that it arrived a lot earlier than expected. The key wallet quality is great and with the correct dimensions as I requested (shorter than what he normally makes). The leather is beautiful and craftsmanship is also excellent. Very simple, just how my husband likes it. We hope it will last a long time. Overall an excellent experience!
