Veg-Tanned 1-Piece Watch Strap in Mahogany
vvThese full-grain veg-tan watch straps are 1-piece. They slip through behind the pins of your watch for easy changing and a chunkier, rugged appearance.
The "standard" size fits most 7.5" wrists on the middle hole with 1.25" leeway on each side.
If you need a shorter size just put a note on your order with your wrist circumference.
Straps are 1.6mm-2mm thick. These fit Timex Weekenders and most other watches. If you think you might need a thinner strap, you can try this method: fold a dollar bill longways 4 times. If it won't fit behind your springpins, you need a thinner strap. If it fits, the normal size will work! If you need a thinner strap simply note it at checkout.
Leather Type: Vegetable tanned leather that is “unfinished” is not as water resistant as other tannages, loses its oil content faster, and shows the signs of wear and tear more dramatically.
This includes coloration changes as well as creases, wrinkling, and softening at the curves. For instance, the watch strap will "relax" around the curves of your watch pins as time goes by, and develop a crease by the hole you use most. This leather will require some oil every few months.
Construction: Straps are cut from a whole hide, dyed by hand, and finished by burnishing with all-natural vegetable gum. We can add a rivet if requested. Comes with a keeper loop that "floats", so you can place it wherever you like!
Stretch: Veg-tan leather doesn't stretch much initially and comes a little stiff, but over time will form to stress. So it takes a few days for the strap to "relax" around your wrist and watch pins. This is a good thing...it means your strap will form perfectly to your wrist!
