Helsinki | 20x19
curved Grey Nubuck

Regular price £145 GBP USD EUR

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.

Editor's notes 

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.

The Helsinki is also available with straight ends and as watch folios and storage boxes. Explore the entire collection of Helsinki grey nubuck accessories.

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.

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

Thickness: 2.5mm, making it a fairly thin stra

As with all our nubuck straps, Helsinki 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 or Royal Mail, 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.
