CHOICE OF LEATHER
This is the type of leather you fall in love with. Its patina and structure reminds us of authentic leather of days gone by, and its natural shine of officer boots and belts, waxed with precision and care. Its use was, for us, clear.
Available in black and in brown, we can easily see these straps on a Mark XI or an officer chronometer of the 1950’s. The truth of the matter is, these straps have that magic touch that adds a “gallant” air to any watch.
OUR “BUND OFFICER” STRAP
The Bund strap is a two part set composed of a regular strap and what is commonly called an “American plate”.
Developed for the army, those watch straps were meant to avoid damage to the watch from excessive sweat, and also injuries caused by the direct contact of a burning or freezing case-back with the skin.
The proportions of our American plate have been redesigned and refined to remain very elegant. The leathers were chosen for their patina and their resistance
In term of proportions (case/buckle): 18/14mm – 19/16mm – 20/16mm – 22/18mm
FINISH: “GOD IS IN THE DETAIL”
Our tapered straps have a difference of 4mm between its two ends, enhancing the presence of the watch case. The short piece of the strap has been extended for practical reasons, and is inspired from watch straps of the 1950’s.
When the strap is fastened, the buckle moves inwards and is no longer a bother for certain activities like writing. The one-size-fits-all strap suits wrist diameters from 16,5cm to 21cm.
Stitching is present on the edges and 3 coats of a high quality matte dye were applied.
Entirely designed and created in our workshops in France.
