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:

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)

We add new watch straps to the page nearly every day, as we continue to build a collection which includes some of the most unique watch straps available.

Watch Straps in Uneven Lug Widths

So you have a favourite watch, maybe it was a present, or a hand me down from an older relative or family member. You really like the look of it, but it’s a watch which has an irregular or uneven lug width. I’m talking anything with an odd number in millimetres. For example 13mm, 15mm, 17mm, 19mm, 21mm, 23mm, 25mm etc.
This can be problematic when you’re buying a new watch strap, as the majority of watch straps are only available is specific sizes, normally standard sizes like 18mm, 20mm and 22mm for men’s watches and 14mm and 16mm for ladies’ watches. Now if your watch does not have a lug width with one of these sizes, it is going to be more difficult to find a watch strap which is suitable. For those of you with extra small sizes and extra large sizes, you have less choice, but can normally find something suitable. For those of you with a watch with an uneven lug width, you may have put your watch away in a cupboard because you couldn’t find a suitable strap. I have good news! It’s time to get that watch back out of the cupboard and check out these new straps, and others from our uneven lug width category:

Volvera from the brand Meyhofer
First off, the Volvera from Meyhofer, which is a strap in IWC style and even has non standard stitching colours, giving you a choice which you didn’t have before. Available in 17mm, 19mm and 21mm as well as some standard lug widths, this watch strap comes with a butterfly clasp and has an alligator grain. Currently we stock black and dark and light browns, with a range of stitching colours.

We stock several straps from Meyhofer which are available in irregular and uneven lug widths. These can be best found by going to the Meyhofer page and clicking on the required lug width.

Eco Aere from Lic Atelier
Secondly, the Eco Aere from Lic Atelier, is a racing style strap available in uneven lug width 19mm and 21mm and standard lug widths 18mm, 20mm and 22mm. Available in black or brown with various stitching colours, this is a watch strap hand made in Belgium, which belongs to the very top level of our watch straps, especially in the racing straps category. If you’re looking for an excellent quality racing watch strap, look no further than the Lic Eco Aere, a watch strap hand made in Belgium with the finest leathers.

Staib – Milanaise/Mesh Watch Straps with a difference

Staib is a brand which has always been a brand which is synonymous with quality. The watch straps from Staib are all metal watch straps or watch bands from the absolute top class category. Or so I thought. Of course they are great quality, there is no question about that, but now Staib has managed to raise the bar even higher with it’s new offering.

Staib is a German firm with a long tradition in manufacturing metal watch bands, concentrating often on mesh or milanaise watch bands.
The MD08 from Staib is the newest in our range of mesh or milanaise watch bands from Staib. The band is a robust mesh structure approximately 4mm thick with a security clasp. The majority of the strap is polished, but the surface of the security clasp brushed, which is only visible when the clasp is open. This clasp also features a cross design on the inside of the clasp, as well as many possibilities to adjust the length of the band at the clasp. With it being a mesh/milanaise band, it cannot be shortened by removing links, so this type of clasp is a great addition to such a watch band. We stock it currently in 20mm, 22mm and 24mm. One thing to note, is that the clasp fitted it always the same 20mm clasp, which means that the 22mm and 24mm models taper from the lug ends to the clasp.

See these photos for more details. As usual, you can click on the photos to be taken to the shop to buy the products.

What am I talking about? I’m talking about the new watch straps from the brand and manufacturer Pattini! All the straps from Pattini are Hand Made in the EU! That’s not something very many brands can boast! Not only are these watch straps made in the EU, they also exhibit designs currently unique in our already vast range of watch straps.
The straps are currently based on one strap form (more forms coming in 2014) and include stitching designs which can often only be described as art. The straps are available in a huge range of sizes including irregular lug widths 19mm and 21mm. The watch straps are very comfortable cut straps with painted sides and are more robust than standard. The wide buckle and range of holes make this strap suitable for a wide range of customers.
