Material and finish Strap size
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.

How to measure your watch strap ?
Originally developed for the British Ministry of Defence, the NATO strap became widely known as the strap worn by James Bond, Ian Fleming’s legendary British Secret Service agent. The Jean Rousseau "NATO" straps are flat, one-piece watch straps that are 1.8mm thick the entire length of the strap.  They will fit on any watch that has at least 1.8mm of space between the case and spring bar.  These straps have no stitching, a turned edge, and are fully lined in leather. This special design allows the leather lining to be in direct contact with the skin, preventing any direct contact from the watch case.  Additionally, our “NATO” straps can be easily changed by the wearer and work particularly well with chronograph watches. Our NATO straps are available in 22mm, 21mm, 20mm, 19mm and 18mm widths and can be made to measure. We offer a beautiful, wide range of colors and materials for these watch straps "Made in France," including technical fabric, leather, and even alligator for a particularly sophisticated look.

The Collection

Vintage

Our Vintage Collection is comprised of products created to have an exquisite, aged patina unique to this collection alone. Each item is hand-made using special processes that result in straps and leather goods that are brimming with character; a vintage appearance unique to each piece.

This collection includes vegetable-tanned calfskin as well as hand-finished alligator.  

The vegetable-tanned calfskin is selected in natural colors and lightly finished. The process brings out the raw, organic look of the skin which will evolve over the life of the product, building a unique, beautifully aged patina.  Our alligator skins in this collection are created by a single artisan within the Manufacture, finished entirely by hand combining harmonious color tones resulting in a lovely vintage-looking patina. Each artisan creates their own unique skin, so that no products in this collection are exactly alike.
