The distressed example that is seen here was in daily (ab)use over a period of 6 months to see how it evolves. The strap was really pushed to its limits, and it shows! As long as you don‘t wear your strap whilst building a house with your own hands or doing heaps of dishes on the daily, it will certainly not age like this. But if you’re going for this look, you will really have to go all in!

This strap features a Change It System.

Care instruction

Our leather straps are made of all-natural vegetable tanned leather. There is no chemical coating or waxing on top, which is why they are so very soft and comfortable. This natural quality also causes aging of the leather by sunlight and everyday wear. Every strap gets its own individual patina, which is something we love. Please don’t treat the leather with oil or wax as it ruins the whole nature of the strap. This also comes with a warning: avoid direct contact with water, as it may cause stains. So don’t wear your strap in the shower or when swimming and be cautious of heavy rain or perspiration. We recommend not wearing the strap in the gym.

Installation advice

We advice using a high quality spring bar for installation of our straps. Especially with newer watches, the gap between the case or bezel and the spring bar may be more narrow than on older pieces. To avoid scratches on the leather, we advise you to treat the strap carefully and without force when installing it on your watch. If it does not seem to fit at all, you might need curved spring bars or a different watch strap altogether. If you're unsure about this, feel free to consult with us before placing your order.

Seems a bit loose? Here’s why

As vegetable tanned leather tends to shrink a bit when worn, all our leather watch straps are intentionally designed with a tiny bit more width to prevent them from feeling or looking too small after some wearing. When first installed with your watch, the strap might appear a bit snug – but after a while, it will stretch and fit perfectly between the lugs. For Bulang and Sons, this is a mark of quality and proof of our traditional and natural approach.

The Ripstop Watch Strap - Change It

A strap with character that goes above and beyond

This was my first purchase on Bulang and Sons. As someone who's into vintage denim the story behind the fabric really pulled me in. Little did I know, I was in for not just a purchase, but an experience. The packaging alone for this strap was above and beyond what I expected, without spoiling surprises for future purchasers. The strap oozes quality and pairs perfectly with my speedmaster. There is no detail left unnoticed here... even the direction of the texture lines from the fabric are perfectly aligned. I opted for the short length and for my 16.5cm wrist it gives me good range to work with for the holes. My only small suggestion for improvement would be to make the small loop which holds the strap down to be a bit tighter... it does tend to slide around a bit, but I personally think it is a minor flaw. The change-it system is super convenient for my frequent strap changes.
