This is Johannes and Mick from WatchBandit in Berlin, Germany.
We are watch enthusiasts who are always looking for exceptional watches and we, of course, love Microbrands. On those principles, we founded WatchBandit back in 2014. We love the small, independent, innovative and contemporary watch and strap manufacturers who have the courage, dedication and sense of design to create special products for all of us. This was what inspired us to found WatchBandit, the shop for micro watch brands and accessories that you will not get on every corner.
The last year we have put more and more focus into creating our own watch straps as we were tired of the extremely expensive straps available that often costs more than the watch itself, but at the same time we still wanted something in outstanding quality, so why not create it yourself and that's what we did. We choose to call this new line WB ORIGINAL and the first collection was the suede straps. Produced in a small Italian Tannery, with calf leather from Tuscany and of course vegetable tanned. These a 35€ a piece:
The second collection from our WB ORIGINAL line was Nato Straps. Here we choose Seat-Belt nylon for a smooth, strong comfortable feel, and hardware in brushed stainless steel. These are 20€ a piece:
The third WB ORIGINAL line that will come in a couple of weeks are Vintage styled leather straps. We are not sure what to bring as a fourth line, maybe a classic line or a racing, but if you have any ideas we would love to hear from you?
That's was a little introduction from us, we look forward to taking an active part in this legendary forum.
High5 from Berlin,
Johannes & Mick
