Jean Grey Babele Chunky Strap
We just love the look of this Babele leather strap in Chunky style for your Panerai! Babele leather is a veg-tanned leather that comes from Tempesti tannery in Italy. The look and feel of this leather article greatly resembles that of a table cloth or fabric. It has the same texture (slightly rough), same firmness (very soft) and same look as a piece of cloth. We think it might be the perfect casual strap for your weekends.
Note: Chunky Straps do not come with spring bars. This is to allow Panerai screw-in bars to be used on these straps. If you wish for us to install regular quick release spring bars (to be used on other watches), do leave a note at check-out.
BABELE LEATHER FROM TEMPESTI TANNERY IN ITALYHaving a distinctive cloth-like appearance, Babele leather offers the tactile hand feel of fabric and a suppleness that moves with you. The inspired pairing of these physical characteristics with an eye-catching surface that emulates the warp and weft of woven textiles will make the perfect casual strap for your watch.
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.
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 PRE-V 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.
