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)

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.

The 19mm and 21mm uneven lug width sizes are complemented by the standard lug widths 18mm, 20mm and 22mm.

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.

Pattini Watch Straps

You may have noticed something new in our shop, something you’ve never seen before in a style that you’ve probably also never seen before!

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. The straps are also available in racing designs and designs without stitching, for those looking to make a minimalistic statement.

These really are great watch straps and come highly recommended. Don’t just take my word for it, check out the photos below and purchase one for yourself in our shop!

Today I have some really ususual watch straps to introduce. As the title suggests, it’s all about watch straps, where the leather uppers are made from basketball leather, from the Chicago based tannery Horween, known for their tradition and famous Shell Cordovan leather.

The straps are brought to you from the brand Meyhofer are available in 22mm, 24mm and 26mm, in orange, which you would expect from a traditional basketball leather.

Multicoloured Watch Straps – even more choice!

It’s time this week to let you know about some great new watch straps, and remind you about some others which we’ve had for a while.

The topic for this post is multicoloured watch straps, something a lot of people have an opinion about. Should a watch that came with a black or brown watch strap always be fitted with a black or brown watch strap? If you choose a different colour, do you taint the design of the watch, what would the designer think if he saw your watch? Does that matter?

Finding a watch without a colour integrated into the design is hard in the current market, but does that mean that the watch strap has to be classic?

If you have a little bit of colour on your watch, how about complementing it with a strap of the same colour, or with the same coloured stitching? Changing from a black to strap to a red one is a big step, one that may not be so appealing, or it may make your watch unsuitable for wearing to work. It may no longer go with your outfit etc. etc. There are a lot of excuses, but hey why not take the brave step and try it?

Alternatively how about fitting a strap to your watch which is black, but with red stiching, or orange stitching, to match the colour of the colour of your watch, or even to contrast it?

Say for example, your watch is has a stainless steel casing with a black face, white numbers, hands, but a red second hand. How about trying a black strap with red stitching? Or even a black strap with blue stitching, since blue and red go great together. For the daring amongst you, you could even go with a red strap with black stitching!

The new watch strap Paracatu from the brand Meyhofer covers many of these combinations and more. Here’s just a few to whet your appetit:
