Rally racing straps were firstly crafted in around the 60s - 70s for racing drivers chronographs to match their style. Perforated leather straps, which were lighter in weight, let air through for comfy wear, were more of a necessity, rather than a desire to bring out individuality. This collection is a tribute to The Golden Age of motorsport. Racing straps will make your watch pop with its simple, vintage-looking aesthetic, adding character and highlighting masculinity.
The top of the strap is made of the finest full-grain cowhide vegetable-tanned "Maya" leather from Conceria Il Ponte in a slate grey color. It is firm, pliable, and durable at the same time. The leather is finished in a rustic style with a smooth surface.
Full-grain cowhide Italian veg-tan leather is well known for its durability.
The lining is made of undied full-grain cowhide Italian veg tan leather.
Both kinds of leather have the 1st grade, so they naturally have good quality and with proper use, the strap can last for a lifetime. With years you will love it even more as you will be able to admire gorgeous natural patina, which gives such a lovely vintage look and adds more class and character to the beloved timepiece.
Aesthetically pleasing, light in weight this strap is a perfect choice for any occasion, no matter if it's a shadow run or everyday wearing. Since the strap has a perforation (which increases ventilation), it can be used even during the summer, as it lets your skin breathe.
This watch strap is tapered. It starts out wider at the lugs and narrows toward the direction of the tail and the buckle to create such a lovely curve.
The strap has hand-burnished edges. Burnishing is a technique of making rough leather edges smooth using Tokonole and a slicker. As a result - the edges are smooth and shiny.
The THICKNESS of the strap is 2.6mm - 3mm
PLEASE, KEEP IN MIND THAT DUE TO THE DIFFERENT COLOR BALANCE OF THE SCREEN COLOR OF THE STRAP MAY LOOK SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT.
