Zulu Style Straps with Bronze coloured loops and buckle

Today we’re looking at some great new straps, which if you’ve been going along with one of the trends of the last couple of years, you may well have been waiting for expentantly for a while now. Bronze coloured watches, they look great, with the original watch strap. But maybe it’s been a while and the watch strap you have may be beginning to look a little tatty or discoloured. Then these straps are for you. The straps I’m talking about today are Zulu Style watch straps available in 20mm, 22mm and 24mm, and here’s the USP, bronze coloured loops and buckles! We’ve had requests from customers buying straps and changing the buckle to their original bronze coloured buckle. This obviously had its boundaries and didn’t work in all cases due to buckle widths, thorn sizes and thicknesses etc. etc. It was however possible in many instances. There is however a whole community of watch wearers who swear by NATO and ZULU style watch straps. For these people, this news that we now have straps available with bronze coloured loops and buckles is probably music to your ears.

The straps from ZULUDIVER are available in several sizes and colours including some of the ones chosen below. The quality of these straps is great, the material being a relatively thick nylon. The straps have 4 loops and a buckle, which, as often the case with ZULU and NATO style straps, is fixed and not removable.

Tegel and Tegel Classic – New Watch Straps

After a bit of a break it’s time to share some new watch straps once more. Now, I have mentioned the colour „antique black“ before. This is a colour which gives a watch a look which is very intentional. In combination with a classic heimloom watch handed down from generation to generation, it offers the perfect, understated strap to ensure the watch stays in focus. However even if you’ve just purchased a shiny new watch, a strap in antique black might just be that something different you’re looking for.

So let’s have a look and see what the straps offer. First off, there are two very similar straps in the limelight, the Tegel and the Tegel Classic, both from the brand Meyhofer. The differences between the two are very subtle; the stitching colour and the buckle colour differentiating from model to model. The straps are both what we call watch straps with leather pads, straps which can be used with or without the leather pad which is positioned underneath the watch. The strap also has a leather buckle pad which separates the buckle from the skin and gives the strap a typical aviator feel. Available in 18mm, 20mm and 22mm, it’s good for most standard sizes.

But enough stats, here are some photos and links to the products in our shop (just click on the photos).

Available in 22mm, 24mm and 26mm, the cut strap with painted sides, with 2 rivets at each lug end and one at the tip of the piece with holes, is fitted with 2 leather loops (one loose, one fixed) and one fixed stainless steel loop. This is a classic aviator style watch strap, somewhat thicker than normal at approx 5mm thick, available in different coloured stitching to make it suitable for a wide range of watches.

New Oldenburg Straps from Meyhofer

This week we’re talking about a watch strap made out of a unique material, from the brand Meyhofer.
The watch strap Oldenburg, available in 20mm, 22mm, 24mm and 26mm in a range of colours is made of a material with a wide range of distintive features. The surface is UV-Resistant (DIN 54004), mould resistant, antibacterial, water resistant, easy to clean, flame retardant and has high abrasion resistance as well as having a silverguard-protection, which contains silver molecules which fight against discolouration, bacteria and smells in an environmentally friendly way. This material, coupled with a great wide buckle design and double asymmetric stitching in 2 colours makes the strap unique in more ways than 1. For those of you looking for something made of a textile material which is hard wearing and eye catching, this is the strap for you.

Here are some of the colour combinations on offer:

New Estero Watch Straps from Meyhofer

After a bit of a break, due to a huge amount of work over the last few months, (including a website update coming soon, making things easier and more organised for you, we hope) we’re back with the first post of a few introducing new straps from the brand Meyhofer. If you’ve been checking out the new products page or the Meyhofer page in our shop, you’ll have realised that loads, and I mean loads of new straps have been added over the last few months.

The first one I’d like to showcase is the watch strap Estero from Meyhofer’s Individual Collection. This watch strap is a leather watch strap with alligator grain, contrast stitching and contrast painted sides. A large buckle completes the look which is great for a wide range of watches, either for jazzing up a someone boring watch, or finding exactly the right colour to complement that coloured watch face on your favourite wrist watch. Finding the colour should be fairly simple, with this model being available in black with red, orange or white stitching and sides, dark brown with white or orange stitching and sides, light brown with black or orange stitching and sides, and grey with black or orange stitching and sides. Check out a few of the combinations in the photos below and click on the photos to be taken to our shop.

New Vintage Horse Leather Watch Straps from Herzog

We’re looking at a rather unusual watch strap this week. The vast majority of watch straps are made either of calf’s leather, or if you’re in the market for something a bit more expensive, genuine alligator is a popular choice. The strap I want to show you today is made of horse leather, something which you may have only heard of from our posts about shell cordovan watch straps. This strap is not made of shell cordovan leather, but standard horse leather. The cut strap made in Italy has painted sides and a vintage look with light, contrast, detail stitching at the lug ends and at the tip of the piece with holes. The watch strap is great for aviator style watches, but can also make a classic watch look a bit more interesting.
We’re talking today about the watch strap Vintage-Horse from the brand Herzog, based in Remchingen in Germany.
Here are some photos. Please note that there are 2 seemingly similar brown colours, this enables you to find the exact shade of brown you’re looking for.

More Specialities – NATO Style with wide buckle and antique look

Over the last year or so we’ve been adding more and more NATO style watch straps to our range of watch straps. So you might be asking, OK, another post about a NATO watch strap, what’s different about this one? I’m glad you asked! This watch strap is one of the first on offer with a large buckle, or wide buckle, meaning the buckle pin is wider and the buckle is somewhat more robust. Leather NATO style straps are also somewhat rarer than their textile or synthetic counterparts. This NATO style watch strap is available in the colour antique black, a somewhat unusual colour, but one which adds character to a watch, giving your watch a look which is more family heirloom than just bought on the high street (or your favourite online shop).
The watch strap is called Mendavia from the brand Meyhofer and is available now in lug widths 18mm, 20mm, 22mm and 24mm.

More Shell Cordovan straps from Meyhofer and even more from Kuki

I’ve got a couple of things for you today.

Firstly, we have a new shell cordovan strap from Meyhofer, which is available in black and 17mm, 18mm, 19mm and 20mm. As you may know, the choice in some of the uneven lug widths can be somewhat limited, and this is the first shell cordovan watch strap which we offer in 17mm. Another noteworthy characteristic of this strap is the fact that it is available with coloured stitching. The black shell cordovan leather watch strap is available with light contrast stitching, orange contrast stitching and red contrast stitching. The approx. 2.3mm thick watch strap, hand made in Germany is a cut strap with painted sides and should be suitable for many customers, having a total length of approx 19.3cm in all lug widths:

Secondly, we have added lots more straps to our range from Kuki. Kuki straps are of really great quality, and accurately hand made in the EU. The strap Simba is available in so many different variations, namely in 3 different lengths (in most lug widths) and lots of different lug widths (14mm, 16mm, 17mm, 18mm, 19mm, 20mm, 21mm, 22mm, 24mm). Available in black with orange, red or light contrast stitching and dark brown with orange or light contrast stitching, this strap is suitable for a huge range of watches and wrist circumferences. The calf’s leather uppers are lightly grained and offer a matt finish. The strap is lightly padded and approx 3-4mm thick.

Campagnolo – a new brand on Watchbandcenter.com

I mentioned in my last post that we now have some great new straps from a brand which is new to Watchbandcenter – Campagnolo Cinturini

Campagnolo make a lot of their uniquely designed watch straps in Vicenza, Italy.

To our ever growing range of watch straps on watchbandcenter.com, we’ve added some really very unique straps from Campagnolo, including a carbon style racing strap, a few different avaitor style straps with and without rivets and with some really bright stitching designs. We also have a great textile strap with a square tip and a light brown watch strap with multicoloured stitching, something we’ve never had before.

As I said, some, but not all of their watch straps are Made in Italy. If they are, it’s clearly written in the product description. Some straps are cut straps with painted sides, some without the painted sides and some are remborded.

Let me show you a few straps:

First off, the Cg-LB002110 from Campagnolo in black and red (Also available in light brown/cream, dark brown/cream, red/white, white/black, lug widths 18mm, 20mm, 22mm)
