We've just shot a little video showing some of how our watch straps are stitched. At the moment a lot of companies, big and small, describe themselves as luxury this or bespoke that and then make their stuff in just the same way as any of the low cost brands. Ive always felt a true luxury product should be made by the human hand and not just steered through and between machines by one. Stitching is to me the ultimate expression of this, its hard work, its difficult, it takes years to learn and something I both love and hate, thankfully mostly love. Despite the pain its caused over the years we still hand stitch every stitch in every product we make, which I'm rather proud of given how easy it would be to move to machine stitching. Semi rant over :-)
Thanks, glad you like it. Black and red are a bit of a classic for us, we've made various of our fully stitched belts and watch straps in this combo over the years. This strap also has a natural calf lining which I think adds something to the design, though you can't see it in the photos of course!
We still have a few really nice belts in our clearance section, mostly stuff we've made to the wrong size or tiny cosmetic flaws caught in our QC process. History has taught me they won't be there for long so grab one while you can if you'd like one.
