About Me & My Straps

I’m a former Naval Officer turned Leather Craftsman. I specialize in 5-7mm thick watch straps that compliment Panerai and other large diameter watches. I live deep in the heart of Texas where cattle are a-plenty. Located just minutes away from the headquarters of the LARGEST LEATHER FACTORY IN THE COUNTRY, I hand select my leather ensuring that the quality, color, thickness and texture meet my customers’ exacting standards.

During production, each of my straps is created using age-old leather crafting techniques. Each strap is measured, cut, shaped, and crafted the same way that craftsmen made leather goods some 100 years ago - with lots of primitive tools like knives, skivers, scissors,& mallets…and lots of modern-day sweat, sore hands and hurt fingers. The final result is a tough and durable strap with true character.

I ship worldwide. And the best part is that there is no 4-6 week lead time. I make straps ahead of time in the versatile 120X80 lengths so I always have straps ready to ship. (U.S. customers typically receive their straps within 3-4 business days. Allow 5-7 business days for international orders.)
