The Bakers London Tan Bridle Leather Watch Strap

This Watch Strap is made from the beautiful London Tan Oak Bark tanned leather from Bakers of Colyton, lined with natural calf and is entirely hand stitched using our premium Lin Cable thread. A genuinely artisan made product in every aspect, from the 2 years of tanning to our own hand stitching. Our aim when developing this strap was to make the definitive watch strap for the customer who loves the natural character of this leather.


This watch strap is made from the beautiful London Tan Oak Bark tanned Bridle Leather from Bakers of Colyton, lined with natural calf and is entirely hand stitched using our premium Lin Cable thread. We thin the leather down to enable us to create a fully lined watch strap of around 4mm thick in the centre at the watch end of the strap. This is our Goldilocks thickness, not too thick but thick enough to compliment a mechanical watch. We taper the thickness down to around 2.3mm at the holes and point end of the strap to make the strap easier to buckle and thread through its keepers. If you'd like to see how your strap will be made take a look at the bottom of the page to see a short film of the making process.

The natural beauty of the leather makes for a very special watch strap - the grain pattern is eye catching and the character and natural variegation and variation of colour and markings means every strap will be 100% unique. A genuinley artisan made product in every aspect, from the 2 years of tanning to our own hand stitching. Our aim when developing this strap was to make the definitive watch strap for the customer who loves the natural character of this leather.

Our straps can come complete with a variety of buckles or a deployant. We recommend a Deployant for maximum life of your strap as the design protects the edges and the strap itself from buckle wear. We can also make the strap around an existing buckle or deployant if you wish. Some deployants require especially thin straps, if thats the case with yours you should get in touch so we can discuss the specification you need. 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, please just drop us an email and we can talk through the options for your strap.

For help with sizing please see our size guide here. Every strap is made to measure so we can accommodate any size you require, if you'd like a non standard size just let us know.
