Waxy Slim strap is a rustic strap with a strong pull-up effect that gives character to the seemingly normal looking leather. It is a very supple strap with no break-in required, and has a rich colour and character that complements vintage watches really well. As a veg-tan leather, this leather will form a patina over time, with a unique sheen and antiqued look. The colours on offer are classic and pair well with most outfits and suits. Waxy leather comes from Badalassi Carlo tannery from Italy, which also makes many popular leather articles such as Pueblo and Minerva Box.
WAXY LEATHER FROM BADALASSI CARLO TANNERY IN TUSCANY, ITALYWaxy is Badalassi Carlo's interpretation of the 'pull-up leather'. Offering a streaky distressed look, it comes in rich, vibrant, and classic colours that pair well with most outfits and vintage watches.
SADDLE STITCHED BY HAND WITH LINEN THREADEvery strap is saddle stitched by hand by our leather artisans. Unlike lock stitch created by machines, a saddle stitch is more durable as it is made of two independent stitches that forms a knot at every stitch. Linen thread in 0.35mm thickness was selected for a fine and natural weave.
QUICK RELEASE SPRING BAR FOR EXTRA CONVENIENCEOur straps come with custom made quick release spring bars! This makes it very easy to change out your strap - you don't have to use any tools to do so, which is life-changing if you haven't tried it before. Our QRSBs are best-in-class and improves on many of the features compared to regular QRSBs.
SEALED EDGES FOR LONG-TERM DURABILITYOur edges are finished with multiple layers of edge paint to seal the raw edges. The edges are sanded and edge paint is applied. After the first layer of edge paint has dried, another round of sanding and another layer of edge paint is applied. This process repeats until the edge paint is smooth and uniform.
HYPOALLERGENIC ZERMATT LEATHER FOR LININGThe straps are lined with Zermatt leather from Haas tannery, specially developed for use as a lining material. It is soft to the touch and comfortable even after hours of wear. The leather is water- and sweat-resistant and works well even in hot and humid climate such as Singapore.
316L STAINLESS STEEL REGULAR BUCKLEEvery strap comes fitted with a 316L Stainless Steel Buckle, engraved with our brand name. With its brushed silver finish, it brings about a sophisticated yet durable look to the strap. Our buckle features drilled holes at each side so you can remove the buckle to swap in your own buckle or clasp if needed.
