The top of the strap is as usual the glorious natural tanned Italian calfskin, the lining of the strap is our familiar French calfskin. This strap is not only built to last thanks to the hand stitched construction and superior materials being used, it will also last ‘nicely’ and age very well, developing a nice patina.
This strap is closely related to our Textured Tan strap, except that it is considerably darker as can be seen on this comparison shot (top is Medium Brown, bottom is Tan).
The texture allows the character of the leather to shine out of the box. The surface is not ‘glazed’ in any way, it is a matte natural look. It looks at home on a variety of watches. The edges are painted in a nice brown shade that blends in nicely on the wrist. Straps shown here are with the squared end, please note that these are standard with rounded ends.
