Inspired by leisurely summers on the island, this light nubuck Capri strap reminds A Collected Man of the carefree life and comfort of its shores and the high-tops of its rocky outcrops.
The perfect summer strap due to its light sand colour, and due to the level of comfort the taurillon nubuck leather provides. While it can add a sporty feel, we feel it is best with precious metal dress watches of similar case or dial colour.
Together with its slightly darker version, the Valletta, the Capri is a versatile choice for F. P. Journe watches in 20x19mm size with curved ends.
The Capri is also available with straight ends in standard sizes.
Each of these straps is individually hand-made in order to best fit your F. P. Journe. Completely handcrafted in 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.
Produced using a hard-wearing nubuck, Capri is created from the very best part of the hide. Then, through a production process of sanding, it is given its soft, tactile feel while it is lined with durable, tan-coloured calf leather.
Sourced from the finest tanneries in France, handcrafted in Belgium, and then passing through a strict quality control process, this smooth calfskin strap comes to us from the best European manufactures.
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 strap
Please note that the strap comes without a buckle, so the original tang buckle or deployant clasp can be fitted on it.
The lining of the strap is subtly debossed, indicating the "20mm" lug width, making it easier to store and find the desired strap in your collection. Furthermore, the strap is fitted with quick change spring-bars, 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.
