Durable Sailcloth

Our Sailcloth material features a premium nylon weave with a high sheen finish. The result is a Sailcloth that is durable, long-lasting and wears well. Our sailcloth also has excellent colorfastness.

Leather Backing

The underside of our Sailcloth bands utilizes a thin strip of pigskin that has been specially treated to provide a soft and comfortable fit against the wrist.

Padding & Taper

Each strap features padding for comfort and style. The thickness measures 4mm at the spring bar end and 2.5mm near the buckle. Each strap is also tapered and the width at the buckle is 2mm narrower than the width at the watch head.

Stainless Steel Hardware

The buckles on our Sailcloth Quick Release straps use a brushed 316L stainless steel buckles where others use iron or aluminum. Iron components rust and need to be bulkier and heavier to achieve strength comparable to that of stainless steel. The finish on both treated iron and aluminum parts can weather or wear off, leaving a dull, scrap-metal appearance. If you take a knife to our stainless steel components, you will find a material that 1) is solid all the way through, 2) is difficult to scratch or bend and 3) maintains its initial shine for many years.

Fine Stitching

Our stitch pattern wraps around the full perimeter of the Sailcloth strap for enhanced strength. Each band is individually stitched using durability-tested thread.

Optimal Fit

We studied several statistical analyses on the distribution of wrist sizes among various populations. The result is a band that accommodates not only a wide variety of watch designs, but also wrist circumferences. All of our Sailcloth quick-release straps are designed to fit wrists between 5 1/2 and 8 inches in circumference. However, the size and geometry of the watch will also impact fit. If you are not sure whether a band will fit or not, we encourage you to give it a try as we offer a money-back guarantee
