ABOUT THE LEATHER
The Horween Leather Company needs little introduction. Their most famous leathers, Chromexcel and Shell Cordovan, have been produced since 1905 with a secret formula. These leathers are unique to Horween and are celebrated worldwide for their quality and heritage.
The Chromexcel leather is famous for being one of the best “pull-up” leathers. When soft aniline leather creases, bends and stretches, the color migrates to the stimulated “pulled” area and causes the color to become lighter. This change in color gives the “pull-up” leather its name.
Chromexcel is unique in that it is naturally air-dried unlike many other aniline leathers, which results in a tighter break. Thanks to its manufacturing process, it has excellent scratch recovery too. With its special pull-up characteristic, this is a fine leather to age and patinate on your wrist.
Our design is inspired from straps made during watch revolution in the 1950s. Important features include micro stitching, thinness, tapered look, and use of calfskin & antique leathers. These straps shall perfectly complement your vintage as well as contemporary timepieces.
