Launched alongside each watch collection, our handmade watch straps use Argentinian-sourced buffallo hide or Italian leather. Manufactured by W. T. Author in Britain, our rich colour of these double shoulders is applied during the tanning process and goes completely through our handmade watch straps. The result is a glazed leather with exquisite beauty, that will uniquely mould itself to your wrist over time. The handmade watch straps have been designed and manufactured to fit 22 & 24mm lugs and are embossed with the W. T. Author ‘A’ trademark. They are completed with buckles to compliment the design. To allow us to fit the strap free-of-charge, simply complete the handmade watch straps purchase and return your watch to us (making sure it’s tracked and insured, preferably in it’s original packaging). We will endeavour to have your watch serviced and securely returned as soon as possible. You can also find us at locations across the country including Country Living Fair, Spirit of Summer / Christmas, and Eroica Britannia.

Our workshop is based in the Shropshire countryside where we receive each tailor-made component from every corner of the globe (from USA to South America, the Far East to Switzerland and of course, Great Britain). We assemble our British watches and fit precision movements, tested above and beyond the usual quality standards. We make and fit our straps from beautiful Italian leather or raw Buffalo hides onto the handmade watches, where it will sit in our bespoke packaging with signed book and limited edition numbered screen print.
