Watch Strap Size Chart and Measuring Instructions

Step 1: Measure Lug Width

  • Using a ruler or caliper, measure the width of the space between the lugs of your watch where the strap will attach. This measurement will determine the lug width.

Step 2: Measure Wrist Size

  • Wrap a flexible measuring tape or string snugly around your wrist, just below the wrist bone.
  • Note the measurement in inches or centimeters.

Step 3: Determine Strap Length

  • Measure the distance between the lug ends of your watch to determine the ideal strap length. This measurement should correspond to your wrist size and desired fit.
  • For a comfortable fit, add 1,5 to 2 inches (3.5 to 5 centimeters) to your wrist size measurement.

Step 4: Consult the Size Chart

Tapered sizes: 

Tapered size refers to a gradual reduction in watch strap width from one end to the other. In the context of watch straps, a tapered design typically features a wider width near the lug attachment point of the watch and gradually narrows towards the buckle or clasp end. This tapered shape not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the strap but also offers a comfortable fit, ensuring it conforms smoothly to the wrist. Tapered straps are often favored for their stylish look and ergonomic design, providing a sleek and refined appearance when paired with various timepieces.

Please Note:

The wrist size mentioned refers to the circumference of your wrist at the location where you typically wear your watch.

The length guide provided is approximate and applies to the straps depicted in the images. Variations in fit may arise due to variances in wrist shapes, buckle or clasp types, and differences in watch case sizes or shapes, which cannot be entirely accounted for.

Additionally, individual differences in hand size and structure may further influence fit.

Could you imagine to wear your watches on a bespoke strap, that was crafted from the very special 5-6 mm thick leather traditionally produced at the only one historic, oak bark tannery in the Britain? Could you also believe that this leather needed 14 months-lasting gentle tanning process to become that luxury and durable? Well now you can not just to dream about, but possess it.

We are proud to represent our handmade oak bark tanned watch straps. The famous Britain tannery J. & F.J. Baker & Co Ltd. provides us with the highest quality, most durable 5-6 mm thick leather. This tannery remains a family business since 1862, where exclusive all-natural tanning and finish techniques are handed through the generations over centuries

J. & F.J. Baker & Co Ltd. stands for unrivalled, hardwearing, strong and richly coloured leather thanks to natural methods and products, as well as to the skilled craftsmanship. Tanning process uses only oak bark and stream water. Unlike modern tanning, 14 months-lasting oak bark tannage saves the natural leather fibres. Then expert curriers finish the leather by hand with tannery’s own special mixture of natural oils and greases that nourishes the leather, emphasises its natural grain and saturates colour. Whilst all the process is a slow, labour intensive and expensive, it results into very hardwearing and simultaneously lightweight luxury leather that’s also has incredible aroma.

Our beautiful watch straps made from oak bark leather will be everlasting. The leather has both the Flesh and Grain side, treated with greases and finished with wax. It has deep consistent black colour. The strap model is simple and vintage, stitched in a minimalist mode with olive thick waxed thread, that reveals the luxury English leather in all its glory. A true master piece arises from the art of tanning coupled with the art of straps craftsmanship! Handmade in Finland.

The leather is 5,2 - 6, 2 mm thick and non-stretchy, fits perfectly large and heavy watches. The strap is supple and soft and does not take long to fit in the wrist perfectly.

All our products are manufactured entirely by hand only traditional methods which are over 100 years old. Without the use of mechanical means. Each leather piece has a distinct character. Due to the natural variations in the leather, no two are exactly alike.
