Dark 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 modern dress watches like Patek Philippe, and goes especially well with F. P. Journe's fantastic pieces, like the Chronomètre Bleu.
Produced using a hard-wearing taurillon nubuck leather tanned deep-grey in colour, Helsinki is created from the very best part of the hide. Then, through a production process of sanding, it is given its soft, tactile feel. The lining is made of premium calf leather in tan, while matching stitching finishes the strap.
The Helsinki is also available as watch folios and storage boxes. Explore the entire collection of Helsinki grey nubuck accessories.
