Light Tan Nubuck
We remembered visiting medieval Carcassonne, when this hard-wearing strap first came to us. Both in its colour and quality, it evokes the look and feel of the Southern French town - sturdy but pleasing to the eye.
Together with its slightly lighter version, the Capri, the Carcassonne is one of our favourite strap. It has been our go-to choice for F. P. Journe's watches, as it matches both their the white gold and their yellow gold dials perfectly, but for the best effect, combine it with a stunning blue dial.
Produced using a hardwearing and comfortable taurillon nubuck leather, carefully tanned to a light tan shade with matching stitching, Carcassonne 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.
Length of the regular strap: 110 + 75 mm (4.33 + 2.95 in.)
Length of the short strap: 105 + 70 mm (4.13 + 2.76 in.)
Lug width: 18/19/20/21mm
Buckle width: 16mm
As with all our nubuck straps, Carcassonne is fitted with a quick change spring-bar, making that next strap change all the easier.
