Light nude Nubuck
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.
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. The Istanbul with curved ends in a 20x19mm size to fit Journe buckles will be available soon.
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.
As with all our nubuck straps, Istanbul is fitted with a quick change spring-bar, making that next strap change all the easier.
Straps may be returned within 14 days of purchase, provided they remain completely unworn and in their original, unopened packaging.
