Made by hand in Minneapolis, these shell cordovan watch straps by Guarded Goods feature a one-piece, slip-through design compatible with most watches. Hand-stitched with waxed thread for added durability, they’re also hand-sanded, -beveled, and -burnished with beeswax. They’re available in three different widths (18, 20, or 22 millimeters), and they’re finished with stainless steel nickel hardware, which features square edges.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of width (18, 20, or 22 mm) and color (#4, #8, Black, Dark Cognac, Dark Green, Glazed Natural, Pebble Grain #8, or Reverse Black). Pebble Grain #8 is limited to 5 units. Unglazed natural is not available on this drop.
Available in seven different colors, the shell cordovan leather hails from Horween, in the United States. Shell cordovan begins with the fibrous flat muscle, or shell, of a horse’s hide. Over the course of 6 months, it’s tanned, stuffed, shaved, and polished. Regarded as one of the most durable forms of leather, it’s also sought after for its unique hand-finished color treatment.
