Helsinki | six
grey zip folio
This grey nubuck "Helsinki" six-watch zip-folio, is designed to be a secure, slim and versatile travel accessory, with a modern twist.
A Collected Man has always been fond of Helsinki’s restrained version of Art Nouveau, and it was one of its buildings (a former Nokia cable factory) whose colours are reflected in our Helsinki accessories. Its grey tone adds a certain sportiness to watches, and has quickly become one of our favourite straps to match with dress watches.
Produced using a firm external frame and hard-wearing taurillon nubuck leather (cut from the very best part of the hide), tanned deep grey in colour, then, through a process of sanding, is given its finishing tactile feel. The folio it is secured by a semi-concealed, coil zip in matching colour, that keeps the pouch svelte and comfortable. This zip folio can hold up to six watches.
The two-part interior has a supple, light grey Alcantara lining, while a padded divider provides ample cushioning, which can be snap-closed to the upper compartment. Thus, when the case is opened, the watches in the top section remain safely enclosed and concealed.
Furthermore, the watches on the inside are kept neatly within their recesses by another strong snap closure, allowing for easy access.
Capacity: Holds up to six watches. The alcove should comfortably fit pieces with case sizes up to 45 mm, while the recess is 12mm in depth. Please note that these folios were designed with watches on straps in mind, and may not accommodate watches on bracelets.
Origin: Sourced from the finest tanneries in France and Italy, handcrafted in France and Belgium and then passing through a strict quality control process, this nubuck zip pouch is supplied to us by Molequin.
Style: The Helsinki is one of our favourite straps, and is also available with curved ends and also available as a slim folio for two, four and eight watches, and as special watch cases for collectors, to store four or eight watches stylishly at home.
