Vintage "Ammo" Watch band, thickness 4 mm, made from ammo pouch dates back to 1950th-1960th

€109.00

 
This is our most totally unique and limited edition watch strap!

These are made from an ultra unique and extremely rare  ammo pouch that dates back to 1900th. Most were made around the 1950s to 1970s. They range in many shades of brown from a very light orangish tinted brown to a very sophisticated dark brown. The thickness is around 4mm and they will last a lifetime, even through the toughest of conditions. We keep the construction very simple with 1 piece of vintage leather and your buckle of choice. 

This model is available only for 24 mm  lug width and is made of the original pouch parts. Stitching  and holes are from original pouches and dates back to 1950th-1970th. 

Width: 24 mm 

Length: 

small 110/70 mm 

medium 120/80 mm 

large 135/80 mm 


Every leather piece is unique and might differ from the image. It is totally unique watch band and you will never meet the other the same watch band. Images are from the made to order watch bands, each is unique and is hard to repeat, since all leather pieces are different in tone. 

We need 5-10 business days to get the ammo watch band ready (due to extra leather oil processing). 

PS Please, note, the ammo strap is made of very old leather. It's processed with oils to last long and is very soft. However, the bands have specific vintage leather smell, proofing the originality of material used. 

 

 

 

NB! Ammo straps are made of real vintage leather from 1900th-1980th. The leather might get dry and requires special leather care balm to avoid drying and breaking. The leather balms also increase longevity of the leather straps and make them softer. We have tested and highly recommend applying small amount of natural Smith's Balm (made of organic cocoa butter, beeswax and 100% pure sweet almond oil) weekly to the valuable Ammo watch band.

CUSTOM DYED EDGES: edges can be dyed on request at any watch strap. We use professional edge dyeing paint from Italy and Japan. Over 50 colors are available. Link https://finwatchstraps.myshopify.com/products/edge-processing
