A closer look at strap stitching…

Hereunder we take a closer look at the two different types of stitching we currently offer for the Original straps. The vintage (double) stitch and the horizontal stitch. In both cases, we only use high quality waxed luxury thread.

Vintage stitching:

We start of course with our standard vintage stitch or commonly called the double stitch. A style with its roots in traditional belt making. This is by far the most requested strap finishing that compliments both new and vintage timepieces very well.

Horizontal stitching:

The stitching  on the picture below is what we refer to as a horizontal stitch. It is one that can’t be obtained with machines, it is the slanted saddle stitch. The thread is at a specific angle and the saddle stitching is one of the examples where handcrafted work can be superior to machined work. Stitches are reinforced on ends to ensure maximum wear resistance.
