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.

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 to 50 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.

The straps attach to your watch using standard pins that slide through a gap at the end of each strap and click into the lugs on your watch. Most watches and straps are like this.

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!

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 about 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 requested a custom book cover, and everything from the communication to the final product went perfectly. I ordered leather products from Etsy before, but they were often rough around the edges and very flimsy. However, Tony's iteration is nicely finished and just oozes quality. The leather is very thick and nicely finished around the edges (which takes additional time). The cover I ordered has more of a robust vibe to it (which I wanted) but I'm sure you can specify what you like. Overall my best experience on Etsy for now!
