We Made this Leather Product
Over 20 years of Experience
We manufactured this alligator watch strap with infinite care to each detail, with Square Scales. This is a handcrafted strap in the Bocane Atelier, limited series, not a mass produced item.
Our Alligator Leather comes from farmed American Alligators (Alligator Mississippiensis) - a gorgeous exotic hide. Pieces with square scales come from the center of the skin. Alligator is a soft and flexible leather, yet even more resilient than any other leather type.
As every exotic skin is unique, no two watch straps will look exactly the same. This leather is subject to CITES international treaty, and unfortunately cannot be shipped outside the EU.
We hand sew exotic straps to achieve this beautiful look.
This classic straight lug, tapered strap will fit a wide variety of wristwatch brands.
We will manufacture this watch strap according to your requirements in 2-3 weeks.
|Leather:||American Alligator (Alligator Mississippiensis), farmed, square scales|
|Stitch:||Machine sewing, closed by hand
||Made in Europe, right in the Bocane Leather Manufacture Atelier
The watch band size is the lug width, where the strap goes on the watch, and the buckle width, where the buckle closes the strap to fit the watch on your wrist. Most of our straps are tapered - this means they are wider at the lug than they are at the buckle. We do make straight ones though, the same size at the lug and buckle.
Lug size is very important. It must be just right so the strap fits your watch. Use a caliper or a ruler to measure the distance between your watch lugs. The buckle size is important if you want to keep your old buckle. If not, you can choose from available sizes, most of our straps come with a buckle. Our buckles have spring bars and can be removed from the strap. Measurement are in milimeters.
Tip! Sometimes the lug size or both lug and buckle size will be stamped on your old wristband. You can check, but it is best to also measure, just to be sure.
You might also need your strap length. This is the length of the long strap (the one with holes) and of the short strap (the one with the buckle).
Stock straps are Medium Length (115 / 75 mm), which fits best a wrist circumference between 16.5 and 19.5 cm. You can choose the length you want for special order straps. If you would like a stock strap design in a different size or length just let us know, we love custom orders!
Tip! Sometimes the length will be stamped on your old wristband. You can check, but it is best to also measure, just to be sure.
Bocane wristbands available in stock can be fitted on any watch with classic straight ends, one straight spring bar for the long strap and one for the short strap. The size of the strap must be right for the watch, using the watch strap size guide.
