French Calfskin Leather Watch Strap - Chestnut Brown

Size Guide

Lug Width
The lug is where the strap meets the case of the watch and the lug width is the distance between the left and right ‘lugs’. Typically this is in the region of 18-24mm but straps come in all shapes and sizes
Buckle Width
This is the inside measurement of the buckle width where we will attach either your current buckle or a new one. I also supply buckles so I can recommend a taper (from lug to buckle) or use your current sizes
Length
There are two parts to the strap, the long part which has the buckle holes and the short part that has the buckle attached

I need the length of each of these, typically the standard size is 125/70mm which tends to fit the average sized wrist as an example

To measure this the easiest thing to do is measure a strap that you may already have that fits perfectly and send me these, or alternatively measure the circumference of your wrist with a tape measure or a piece of string to then measure and send me that figure and I can recommend

Please reference the notes below for size appropriate for your wrist

Measuring lug, buckle and length can simply be done with a ruler, but for more accurate measurements I suggest getting some digital calipers online which are very cheap but remarkably helpful if you think you’ll use them again in future. I couldn’t be without mine now!

Bear in mind that the size of the watch head also needs to be taken in to account and deducted from your wrist circumference. Most watch heads are typically 1-1.5″

For a size guide please reference the below and also note that you can simply contact me for any advice at all:

  • 6.1 - 6.5″ wrist (154 – 165mm) = 110/65
  • 6.6 - 7″ wrist (167 – 177mm) = 120/70
  • 7.1 - 7.5″ wrist (180 - 190mm) = 125/75
  • 7.6 - 8″ wrist (193 - 203mm) = 130/80
  • 8.1 – 8.5″ wrist (205 - 215mm) = 135/80
  • 8.6 -9″ wrist (218 – 228mm) = 140/85
  • 9.0+″ wrist (229mm+) = 145/90
Belt Sizing
Take your favourite belt and measure the distance from the base of the buckle where it connects to the leather to your most used hole, in inches

If you do not have a belt to hand simply take the waist size of your favourite jeans and add 2 inches to their waist size

Any concerns please email us to avoid disappointment as our belts are made to order and non refundable

Our French Calfskin straps are super durable with a smooth finish and very light visible grain. Wonderful with vintage and modern watches alike and a leather that can last you a lifetime!

Materials

Quality to be proud of.

Sourcing the finest leathers and materials has always been at the core of our business. We source leather from all over the world but largely from Europe, England and Japan. We are always on the hunt for new and exciting leathers that are beautiful to us and I hope to you as well.

We do not use skins or hides from animals farmed for their skin alone. All leathers and skins are a bi-product of the meat industry. This is a personal choice and one we are committed to.
