Not often thought about when looking at a watch is the strap that accompanies it and holds it into place. On the finest watches in the world, the leather straps are extremely important—as their sartorial prowess is key to the luxury brands. One rarely thinks about what goes in to the making of a hand-cut, hand-stitched leather strap. From selecting the skins (alligator, calf, ostrich, etc.) to cutting, gluing, sewing and more. Here, thanks to www.AWJOnlineTV.com, and www.hautehorlogerie.org, we have the great opportunity to watch straps in the making and learn about the process.
