CORDOVAN WATCH STRAP

BY JOSEPH BONNIE

It is in Chicago, behind the red door of 2015 North Elston Avenue, that the “Horween Leather Co.” tannery has been working leather since 1927. A legendary name whose origins go back to the end of the 19th century, and which today produces the one and only Horween Shell Cordovan.

We have selected three colors of this exceptional leather to place on your wrist with over 100 years of family know-how, perpetuated from father to son …

HORWEEN SHELL CORDOVAN

THE ONE AND ONLY


 

It has been over a century that the quality of leather tanning from the Horween workshops has been confirmed.

Its reputation is indeed that of know-how, without compromising on quality, particularly in the manufacture of a very special leather that has generated its international success: genuine Shell Cordovan.

More than a color, it is a very specific leather from a particular part of a horse skin. Its working process takes no less than 6 months. During this period the skin is tanned with fats, oils and waxes.

HORWEEN SHELL CORDOVAN

INCOMPARABLE DEPTH


 

The result of the work of the Horween tannery on this leather is of incredible depth and shine. Horween Shell Cordovan’s look is unique, which is why it’s popular in the footwear world (we immediately think Alden or more recently Malfroid) and adopted for a long time by precursor markets such as Japan.

This is why we wanted to combine our know-how with this exceptional material.

 


THREE TYPES OF WATCH STRAPS

AND THREE INCOMPARABLE COLORS

We wanted to start by working with three colors from the Horween Shell Cordovan collection.

A deep black, a legendary burgundy and a green with such special nuances.

You have the choice between three types of watch straps: A classic one with stitching and threading all along without forgetting edge dye applied three times rather than one, the BUND version now known to all, and an absolutely superb rallye strap.

THE CLASSIC STRAP

IN SHELL CORDOVAN


 

It would have been a pity with such skins not to do what is best in terms of craftsmanship: threading and dyeing on the edges and same tone stitching with excellent resistance over time.

As usual, a slim design that tapers 4mm to the buckle. The short part of the strap has been lengthened for functional reasons. Once the strap is closed, the buckle shifts inward and is no longer a hindrance when writing.

The proportions of our straps (width at lugs/width at buckle) are as follows: 18/14mm – 19/16mm – 20/16mm – 22/18mm

Fits wrists measuring 16.5 to 21 centimeters in circumference.

IN LIMITED EDITION?

MOST LIKELY


 

Why?

Simply due to our production capacity.

Difficult to come by and very expensive, the Horween Shell Cordovan must be desirable and desired …

This does not mean that we will not produce this strap again in the months and years to come. However, it will always be offered in limited quantities.

A strap that you can find at JOSEPH BONNIE as well as at our friends of MALFROID whose models of shoes in Cordovan are absolutely superb …
