Horween Shell Cordovan.
Horween Shell Cordovan
The strap is an integral part of any watch and we’ve always paid close attention to this important detail. High quality leather is usually our material of choice and this time we’ve reached new heights using genuine shell cordovan from Horween, the American tannery that has set the industry standard for high quality leather since 1905.
Shell cordovan comes in irregular oval shaped leather shells that are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished – a process taking at least six months. Dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish. The strap is constructed from a solid piece of leather with reinforced stitching and fitted with quick release spring bars for easy strap changes.
This is a natural product that will age beautifully. No two straps are the same and there are natural colour variations and small marks/creases in the material so be prepared for a natural slightly rugged feel.
The straps are available in three colours (Black, Whiskey / Light Brown and Color 8 / Dark Brown) as part of our PKG01 collection and as separate 18mm straps fitting most of our current and older round mens watches.
