Helsinki | 20x19
curved Grey Nubuck
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 this strap. While the grey colour with brownish undertones adds a certain sportiness, we feel it matches F. P. Journes fantastically.
With its versatile grey colour, the Helsinki quickly became one of our favourite colour to match with F. P. Journe watches, thus it is now available with curved ends in a 20x19mm size to fit Journe buckles.
Please note that this strap comes without buckles.
Each of these straps is individually hand-made in order to best fit your watch. Completely handcrafted in France and Belgium, the process to create them involves at least five different stages of production, to ensure the spring-bar and the material fit the lugs, despite the thickness of the leather.
These specially-curved, bespoke straps come to us from the best European manufacturers. Produced using a hardwearing taurillon nubuck leather, sourced from the finest tanneries in France and Italy, this nubuck leather, created from the very finest part of the hide, is tanned to a brownish grey tone. Then, through a production process of sanding, the material is given its soft, tactile feel.
Thickness: 2.5mm, making it a fairly thin stra
