Valletta | 20x19
curved Light Tan Nubuck
The Valletta evokes the breathtaking view the Maltese capital's landscape, as viewed against the contrasting azure blue of the sea. The Valletta brings to mind the idea of leisurely summer evenings, for a watch to be matched with nothing else but linen shirts and shorts.
Together with its slightly lighter version, the Capri, the Valletta is one of our favourite straps. It is has been our go-to choice for F. P. Journe's watches for a while now, as it matches both their white gold and their yellow gold dials perfectly. However, for the best Mediterranean effect, combine it with a stunning blue dial. It is now available with curved ends in a 20x19mm size to fit Journe buckles (if you are looking for the straight-end version, we recommend our slightly darker Carcassonne strap).
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, and is tanned to a light tan colour. Then, through a production process of sanding, the material is given its soft, tactile feel.
Thickness: 2.5mm, making it a fairly thin strap
As with all our nubuck straps, Valletta 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.
