Classic 5.0 watch strap navy nubuck alligator

Material and finish
The width includes 2 figures, expressed in millimetres (mm).
The first figure measures the width of the strap “between the lugs”, i.e where the strap is attached to the watch case.
The second figure measures the strap at the buckle (generally there is 1mm, or more frequently, 2mm difference between the width “between the lugs” and the width “at the buckle”.
As an example - size 14/12 (14mm “between the lugs” / 12mm “at the buckle”), 18/16, etc.
All our straps can be ordered with a Jean Rousseau buckle (stainless steel or gold plated), in this particular case, you will only need to measure the necessary size of your watch “between the lugs”. However, if you want to use the original buckle of your watch, you will absolutely need to carefully take both measurements and send us a bespoke request.
Our standard length sizes include 2 figures, both expressed in millimetres (mm).
The first figure measures the length of the short part of your strap (the one carrying the buckle) and the second one, the long part.
-L size: 85 / 115 mm – i.e. 85 mm for the short part (the one with the buckle) and 115 mm for the long part
- M size: 70 / 110 mm
-S size: 65 / 105 mm
Our straps can be equipped with quick release spring bars. Thanks to its ingenious mechanism, these quick release bars allow the customer to quickly change his/her watch strap according to the occasion.
