Shell Cordovan Leather Strap 20/16mm [Black, Full Stitch]

Size (Wrist Size)

Shell Cordovan is known as one of the best leather available. Likewise, it is also one of the most expensive leather in the market. It comes from the hindquarters of horsehide, and because the fibres are packed so densely together, the leather that results from that is exceptionally durable and naturally resistant to water.

Our Shell Cordovan comes from Shinki Hikaku (新喜皮革) tannery in Japan. Typical of most shell cordovan, it has a high gloss finish. Unique to this tannery, the surface is highly uniform and immaculate, with a beautiful depth of colour. A leather outstandingly durable that it is likely to last as long as your mechanical timepiece!


The Best Shell Cordovan Leather Strap on the market!!

Handmade by our leather artisans. Every stitch, every chisel and cut, all by hand.

We pushed the envelope and raised the bar of quality! We made what most people would not and only dream of, simply because it is expensive to produce.

We made all our shell cordovan straps Double-Side Shell Cordovan!! Doubling the amount of material required. In other words, we used Shell Cordovan for the lining as well instead of other common lining leather. The top is shell cordovan, the back is also shell cordovan. You do not get to see this anywhere. This will ensure that you get the maximum durability you can ever get your hands on.

Straps have a 20mm width that tapers down to 16mm with quick-release springbars. A very wholesome and solid thickness of 2.8mm that speaks volume in terms of quality while retaining the flexibility.

The chain stitch on the strap is really nicely done. The pinholes were sized accurately to fit my wrist (7”) and the tip of the straps ended just nice at the double loop, not too much and not too short. The gloss on the leather is a bit glittery compared to my other shell cordovan items that I have. Not sure if it was treated of painted or treated after being made. The loop is really nice and snug but it’ll get softer over time after breaking in. There were some deep scratches above the quick release spring bars on the longer end of the strap. Would appreciate if it could’ve been checked properly before packing, etc. Overall I’m really happy with this strap on my Explorer I. Delivery was really quick. It only took 3 days to get delivered. Will definitely order again from you guys. Thank you for this beautiful strap 🫶🏻

Final piece my build needed

Got most of my parts for a GMT build from Lucius but hadn’t found the right strap. This is it!

Great quality as always.
