Istanbul
Light nude Nubuck

Regular price £96 GBP USD EUR

Istanbul is a place close to A Collected Man, and we are indebted to this stunning city and its fantastic food culture for many reasons. As a result, we chose to give this name to one of our favourite straps, whose colours reminds us of the city’s stones at dawn.

Editor's notes 

The Istanbul is our lightest-coloured strap together with its suede counterpart, the Palermo. The nude colour with matching stitching add a welcome note of lightness and texture to the warmer toned rose gold cases but also makes a subtle, understated match with the cold hue of platinum cases. The strap will pair well with light, silver and white dials - but it looks stunning against the blue dial on Journe's Chronometre Bleus.

Produced using a hardwearing taurillon nubuck leather carefully tanned to a warm light nude colour, Istanbul is created from the very best part of the hide. Then, through a production process of sanding, it is given its soft, tactile feel. 

Sourced from the finest tanneries in France and Italy, handcrafted in France and Belgium, and then passing through a strict quality control process, this smooth calfskin strap comes to us from the best European manufactures.

Regular strap: 110 + 75 mm (4.33 + 2.95 in.)
Short strap: 105 + 70 mm (4.13 + 2.76 in.)

As with all our nubuck straps, Istanbul is fitted with a quick change spring-bar, making that next strap change all the easier.

Like all leather goods, straps benefit from a small amount of care and attention to extend their lives. Suitable cloths, brushes and shampoos may cure unwelcome odours or blemishes, and consider storing your straps in a dry, enclosed space, when not on your watch.
All straps will be shipped by either DHL Standard or Express, depending upon the method selected at checkout. Orders received by 14:00 GMT, will be shipped on the same working day. Shipping to the UK is complementary and next day.


Straps may be returned within 14 days of purchase, provided they remain completely unworn and in their original, unopened packaging.
