Handmade Leather Watch Strap - Pass Through Style - Horween Dark Coffee Dublin

Handmade Leather Watch Strap - Pass Through Style - Horween Dark Coffee Dublin


This handcrafted leather watch strap encourages compliments for the wearer.  It definitely stands out against the parade of stock watches that come with mediocre straps or cheap metal you might see around town.  

THICKNESS NOTE: We're using 4-4.5 oz thick leather (0.0625" - .070" thick) - PLEASE MEASURE YOUR LUG THICKNESS to ensure this strap will fit between the lugs and the watch body.

** The watch is not included **


Made with 4-4.5 oz Horween Dark Coffee Dublin, this leather is waxy and has a beautiful pull-up when stresses are put into the leather, giving it a marble look. Here are the specifics on what makes up Horween's Dublin leather:

- Full Grain: Leather that has its surface left completely intact, showing all natural characteristics of the hide.
- Vegetable Tanned: A tanning method that employs vegetable liquors derived from tree barks. This method of tanning is very traditional and takes longer to achieve than chrome tanning.
- Aniline: Dyes and finishes that contain no pigment.  When used on leather they provide a rich, clear stain that allows the natural character of the article to be seen.
- Fat Liquored: Leather that has been nourished and conditioned with emulsified oils.
- Pull-up: The temporary lightening of certain leathers when folded. This is caused by displacing oil and waxes.

"More rustic than our base Essex line, Dublin is a veg tan infused with a rich blend of natural waxes and then hot plated. It has all the supple characteristics of Essex with a darker surface color that showcases the natural grain.” - The Tannery Row


Here I’m using waxed brown colored polycord from Maine Thread Company out of Lewiston, Maine USA. The thread here is .040” medium weight and is stitched using a Saddle-Stitch or Double-Stitch where two needles go through the same hole in opposite direction allowing for a stronger stitch than most commercial sewing machines.

Buckle - The ZULU style buckle is made of stainless steel.  We've added a leather strap loop to keep the excess tail of the strap under control.
Width - 19mm and 20mm available
Thickness:  4-4.5 oz leather = between .0625"-.070" thick / 1.587mm to 1.778mm

LENGTH NOTE: Please measure the length from tip of buckle to most used hole on your current watch strap and message me with this measurement when placing your order.  This measurement will become the center hole, flanked by two extra holes.  If you don't have a recent used watch strap to measure from, wrap a string around the wrist and get the measurement against a ruler. 

NOTE:  This leather is untreated and natural, it will wear in and become more relaxed and unique to you over time.  This means the leather WILL stretch a bit as you wear it.

To Install:  Simply remove the existing strap, and feed the end of the new pass through watch strap into the top of the watch and then through the bottom - as you can see in the photos.

I always make a conscious effort to treat the leather with care so that once it leaves my shop, you can enjoy the product for many years to come.

Thanks for visiting the shop!
