Customizing Your Watch Band | How to Order
Knowing and selecting the correct width is critical to the custom watch strap ordering process. If this detail is unknown then we generally perform a web search when trying to find a specific watch's lug width. For example when searching for an Omega Speedmaster Pro's lug width we would search for "Omega Speedmaster Lug Width", which can be a great starting point. You can add the specific model # to the search as well which can be even more accurate. Our website offers a "Strap Sizing Chart" that can give you the tools needed to find your specific lug width.
The average OEM strap length is somewhere around 115mm/75mm. The 115mm is the length of the longer strap with the holes on it and the 75mm is the shorter strap with the buckle attached. Depending on your wrist size you can go up or down from this starting point. If your wrist is 6" (150mm) then you can go shorter, if your wrist is 8" (200mm) or greater than you might want to increase those #s.
The buckle is a very personal choice. Generally most people match the finish or material of the watch's case to the buckle, but this is not a hard fast rule. Also the general size or feel of the watch is matched here too, meaning a smaller watch might do best with a smaller INOX style buckle while a larger watch might pair best with an ARD or Pre-V style buckle.
We offer 3x main stitching types. Our most popular choice is the "side" stitching option which is a minimal single side tact stitch that we wrap around the side of the strap a few times and it gives a nice clean overall look with a nod to the past. It allows the leather to shine as the focal point vs the stitching. The "full" option is very similar to most OEM style straps and it will give you full stitching around the perimeter of the strap starting at the top right, going to the tip and then back up the left side. Our last option is the "top" option which is simple and very durable, it gives you a single line of stitching parallel to the bar that attaches the strap to the watch.
While there are many wonderful options to choose from, our top few choices would be matching to the leather, cream to give it a nice vintage look or white to offer a fresh, clean look. Black is another great option especially if you want to match the stitching to a PVD (Black) buckle. All of the other colors are a personal choice and that depends on the watch and your personality.
This option refers to the thin leather pieces that the tip of the long strap slides into after going through the buckle, so the tip stays nice and close to your wrist. We almost always recommend 2x of these, especially for larger wrist sizes, just to give you a 2nd keeper in case anything happens to one of them. Once we cut an ammo pouch it is nearly impossible to match the keepers in the future so this is your chance to get 2x from the exact same ammo pouch that your watch strap was made from and this is why we highly recommend getting 2x of these from the start.
This is our go to leather conditioner in the shop and we have been offering this product since our inception. It is still made in Chicago and they still use glass bottles with a metal cap and make one of the finest leather conditioners out there. If you have not tried it or simply do not have a leather conditioner we highly recommend adding a bottle to your collection as vintage straps do get thirsty and need conditioning from time to time.
This is where you can write and add any notes that are pertinent to the order that we need to know. We generally say the more details the better.
