This watch strap is made from fully aniline Ostrich Leg skin. This skin has a beautiful somewhat reptilian character that varies across the skin. We typically cut a strap diagonally across the skin to include both the smaller and larger scale patterns but we can cut the leather to suit your needs. The vivid colours of this skin make a beautiful, striking watch strap. As with all our watch straps, these are entirely hand stitched using our premium Lin Cable thread, both for strength and to allow you to pick from a wide variety of colours enabling you to match, contrast with or compliment both the leather of the strap and the colours of your watch or outfit. If you'd like to see how your strap will be made we have a photo essay illustrating how we make them here
The Ostrich these straps are made from is smooth, comfortable and tactile. We line the straps with natural calfskin to add structure and strength, and the centre of the strap at the watch is raised to add texture and shape to the strap. The strap will be around 3mm thick at the watch tapering to 2mm at the holes and point end of the strap for a slim, flexible strap.
Our straps can come complete with a Hirsch spring bar buckle or an RHD Deployant in either satin or polished finish, alternatively you can buy the strap with no buckle ready for you to fit a buckle yourself or we can use a buckle or deployant you've supplied yourself if you prefer. We're very happy to discuss custom options such as racing holes, point design, stitching options, etc or simply which colours and options are the best combination.
For help with sizing please see our size guide here. Every strap is made to measure so we can accomodate any size you require, if you'd like a non standard size just let us know.
