We sought inspiration from the allure of the iconic British Racing Green cars from the sixties, a timeless fascination that endures. This strap pays homage to that classic colour—a bold and masculine shade, yet possessing a discreet and elegant allure. The pairing of gold and green has always been adored and will remain timeless. Green on tool watches, be it vintage or modern, is a combination that excels. Each strap tapers to a 16mm buckle, completing the ensemble seamlessly.
Saffiano leather is a full grain calf skin. It has a very distinct crosshatch texture that was designed, developed and patented by Mario Prada in 1913. Prada successfully used this leather to produce an iconic line of signature bags. After the patent expired, the leather was widely adopted and used by luxury brands across the globe.
The leather is hot pressed at 70 degrees to create this beautiful pattern. The process seals the skin and results in a super resilient and easy to clean surface. It’s virtually scratch resistant and the ideal leather for straps. Our Saffiano straps will continue to soften over time, but will keep their shape and colour.
