(Incl. 21% tax)

How sad it is to see how expensive watch manufacturers skimp on the strap. I have seen so many substandard watch bands to last me a lifetime.

Do not despair as Alexis, I mean me, is on hand to solve this problem with my made-to-measure luxury watch straps. These are available in all sorts of materials colours and widths.

For this one I would ask you to engage with me and leave me an explanation of what you are looking for in the form fields below. We will get back to you with a price and the time for delivery as soon as possible.


Buckles
Buckles come in 3 different versions: Stirling silver, solid brass with silver plate finish and solid brass. All buckles are designed in house and are cast in Barcelona. I personally hand polish and finish every single one.

Strap
For the standard straps I employ full grain Spanish vegetable tanned leather. I hand cut and dye all the straps personally in my small workshop in the heart of Barcelona, a space open to visitors all year round.

Standard straps are made to a thickness of 2’5 to 3 mm.

Watch bands are cut to size according to the information given at the time of purchase. Please read guidance when purchasing to get the right size.

AF watch straps are designed to fit almost any watch.

All items are assigned with their own unique number code and registered in the book of sales to the person who has purchased it.

I guarantee my work against all premature defects arising from a responsible use of my products and will be happy to repair items that have not performed as expected for free. (I don’t cover shipping though.)

Please note:
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of the medium exact colours and patterns may vary slightly from the images shown.

Sizing Guide

Women

How to Select Belt Width

1 cm to 2.5 cm wide tend to be worn mostly by women over their dresses at waist or hip or with smart trousers, carefully coordinated with the clothes chosen adorning the outfit. Be suspicious if your boyfriend were to borrow one of these thin belts as most men consider these to be too feminine.

3 cm to 3.5 cm tend to be used as a multi-purpose belt for trousers and jeans. For those who only want to own one belt or the habitual jet-setter who travels light.


4 cm would be usually used on jeans or informal trousers with big loops such as baggy pants. If you don’t want to buy one steal it from you partner or brothers but be prepared for a fight.


4.5 cm to 5 cm is the largest size that will fit through the loops of jeans or other such trousers. For those that want to make a statement with a big belt and the big buckle. 5 cm belts also look good over a longer white shirt at the waist.


6 cm and over would be a type of corset belt to go over a shirt or dress at the waist. For a confident women who wants to stand out and make a statement.

MEN

How to Select Belt Width

1 cm to 2.5 cm wide tend to be viewed as too thin and therefore feminine for all but the most self confident boys.

3 cm is the classic suit trouser belt used with all smart trousers. Usually combined with thin elongated buckles for a sleek elegant look for those who value a smart sharp look. 3 cm can also be combined with more rustic buckles especially in brass for a more informal scruffy preppy look.

3.5 cm is the most versatile belt size that would be for all occasions. Thin enough to fit through the loops of suit trousers and wide enough to look ok on a pair of jeans. Good to pair with a versatile buckle which will allow you to use it for all occasions. For the minimalist who only owns one belt. Also a great travel belt for the travel light jet-setter.

4 cm is the classic winner for jeans, your weekend belt and best friend, worn in with its own patina, can cause heartache when it comes to finding an adequate replacement. This is the belt women don’t tend to buy and then steal from their partners, when they are off guard. So be wary when storing it in your wardrobe.

4.5 cm is a slightly bigger belt for jeans. Looks good with solid chunky buckles especially ones with double prongs*. A good belt to buy, once you have enough 4 cm belts in your collection.

5 cm tends to be the widest belt found in men's wardrobes. Often seen with a big oval buckle western style but a large rustic vintage style buckle would also look very 'macho'. Recommended if your a drugs kingpin, very tall or just like to make a statement from time to time.
