Istanbul
Light nude Nubuck

Regular price £96 GBP USD EUR

Istanbul is a place close to A Collected Man, and we are indebted to this stunning city and its fantastic food culture for many reasons. As a result, we chose to give this name to one of our favourite straps, whose colours reminds us of the city’s stones at dawn.

The Istanbul is our lightest-coloured strap, together with its suede counterpart, the Paris. The nude colour and its matching stitching adds a cool counterpart to the warmer toned rose gold cases, used by A. Lange & Söhne, but also makes a subtle, understated match with the cold hue of platinum cases.

Produced using a hardwearing taurillon nubuck leather carefully tanned to a warm light nude colour, Istanbul 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 nubuck strap comes to us from Molequin.

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 straps made by MolequinIstanbul 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 Standard or Express, 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.
