La Rochelle | 20x19
curved navy blue calfskin

Regular price £145 GBP USD EUR

Our navy blue grained strap reminds us of the colours of the Atlantic Ocean and the harbour of La Rochelle, where A Collected Man spent several summers – drinking porto with ice and cycling along its sandy beaches

Editor's notes 

Our grained navy blue calfskin La Rochelle strap is for any occasion, formal or casual. Whether fitted to an independent piece, or a classic dress watch, La Rochelle's colour and texture proves a timeless fit, thus it is now available with curved ends in a 20x19mm size to fit Journe buckles. The lining is made of premium calf leather in tan, while matching stitching adds the finishing touches.

Please note that this strap comes without buckles.

The La Rochelle is also available with straight ends and as watch folios and storage boxes. Explore the entire collection of La Rochelle navy blue calfskin 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.

These specially-curved, bespoke straps come to us from the best European manufacturers. Produced using a grained calfskin 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 deep navy blue colour, with a supple finish.

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

As with all our calfskin straps, La Rochelle 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 DHL Express. 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.
