How soft are your straps?
In terms of softness/ pliability I have 4 main types of leather.
Type 1 :
The softest strap I have is the Atero, this strap is very soft.
Type 2 :
The straps : Dorian, Squadra, Red, Ternio, Ruby, Verde, Hulk, Pink,
Denim Blue, Legend One, Uno, legend 74, Cuoio, K2, 41, SG21, XIX, DecimaX,
These are made from
my favourite kind of leather, nice and soft, very comfortable to wear.
Type 3 :
The hand painted, hand dyed straps and straps made from natural leather :
Naturo, Uno storia, 66, Emerald, Azzuro, Alba, Albus
Also the straps Mustard Yellow and 1984 are about the same firmness.
These straps are a little firmer in temper, however still very comfortable to wear and do not need much time to break in.
Type 4 :
The firmest of my straps is the Nero strap, this strap requires some time to break in.
The straps Oliva and Pumpkin are multi la
yer straps and in terms of softness they are somewhere between type 2 and 3
Can your straps be customized?
Yes, I can customize all of my straps :
- different colour of stitching
- different size than the sizes in the dropdown menus
- custom hole spacing in case you do not like the standard one
- thickness can be customized, I can make the straps thicker or thinner on request
- if you do not like the triple folding on the short part of the strap I can make the strap
OEM style fold with the same thickness on both parts of the strap and a closed buckle loop.
What size are the holes on your straps ?
Size of the holes is 3mm if you order a strap with sewn in buckle, 4mm if you order the
strap with a removable screw in buckle. In case you order
a strap without buckle I will make the holes 4mm unless you request a different size.
Can you make straps for fixed lug watches?
Yes, I can make any strap from my range as an open ended strap for watches with
fixed lugs. On this type of strap there are hidden rivets (Chicago screws) which are only visible from the underside of the strap.
What is the difference between triple fold and OEM fold ?
Straps constructed with the historic triple fold technique have the short part of the
strap thicker due to the leather being folded in three layers. Triple folded straps also
have the buckle and the fixed keeper sitting together in one loop.
OEM fold is a more modern type of strap construction which makes both parts of the strap same thickness, also the fixed keeper and the buckle are placed in separate loops.
