Thread: Ideas wanted -Cordovan

  1. #1

    Ideas wanted -Cordovan

    I must have a hundred watch straps in the box...
    Currently wearing my little Ollech and Wajs on a Nomos cordovan strap which wears superbly
    So where do I get something of similar quality and suppleness for my Panerai 111?
    Nomos strap is actually quite thin....
    Any ideas welcomed , thanks in advance for suggestions

    For anything in simple leather (ie not built over a padding skeleton) I struggle not to make every answer "get Pav to make you one".
    It will be as cheap as any on offer by others, be made and had holes punched specifically for you, with exactly the stitching type you want to ask for.

    The other leather to consider is perhaps horween chromexcel. Itís tanned the same way as cordovan but made from, err, cow. As opposed to horsesí hindquarters. It also usually comes in at a little over 2mm thick rather than cordovan which is thinner unless doubled over.

    Cost/sq ft is also better, hence usually cheaper than the horse option.
