Build the Perfect Watch

One of Nordgreen's core strengths is how customizable our items are.

We come close to helping you shop for the perfect watch with interchangeable watch strap options that complement the design of the watch.

Currently, all Nordgreen's timepieces feature watch bands in a variety of high-quality and durable materials, including real Italian leather, vegan leather, stainless steel mesh, rubber, and nylon (canvas). These accessories come as slimmer 16mm and wider 20mm watch bands, but more ideally as 18 mm watch bands, the perfect balance for both men's and women's wrists.

How wide is the 18mm watch band?

Wide enough to match the 36mm (lug width) watches for most brands. A lug width of 18mm equals roughly 0,7 inches.

Central to all our timepieces are our 18mm bands that offer countless options to play around with the colors and final look of your accessory.

We've also ensured that disjointing the 18mm strap from your watch, and attaching others, is straightforward— thanks to the quick-release mechanism built into all watch cases, eliminating the need for specific tools.

As a badge of quality, our designs guarantee that the watch strap will firmly hold at all times, securing your investment.

Types of Leather Watch Straps

When it comes to choosing a watch strap, leather is a classic and timeless option that adds a touch of sophistication to any timepiece. There are various types of leather bands available, each with its own unique features and characteristics. From traditional cowhide leather to more exotic options like alligator and ostrich, the type of leather used can greatly impact the overall look and feel of the watch. Understanding the different types of leather watch straps can help you make an informed decision when selecting the perfect watch strap for your timepiece.

Genuine Leather

Genuine leather is known for its durability, longevity, and timeless appeal. It is a sustainable material when produced using environmentally friendly practices, such as carbon-neutral tanning. This process reduces the carbon footprint of leather production by offsetting the emissions involved in the tanning process. Partnerships with Eco2L-certified and LWG (Leather Working Group)-partnered tanneries ensure that the leather used is sourced from environmentally responsible suppliers, further promoting sustainability. You can find some of the finest leather around in sustainable materials.

Nordgreen's real leather watch bands showcase the high quality and sustainability of genuine leather. These bands boast a soft feel, ideal length, and excellent thickness, making them not only stylish but also comfortable to wear. Additionally, Frank Clegg's commitment to environmental protection and leatherwork legacy ensures that the production of their genuine leather products aligns with sustainable practices, further contributing to the preservation of the environment.

Overall, genuine leather offers a combination of quality, sustainability, and enduring style, making it a desirable choice for those conscious of the environmental impact of their purchases.

Italian Calfskin

Italian calfskin comes in different types, each with its own unique characteristics. Full-grain calfskin is the highest quality, as it retains the natural grain and imperfections of the hide, giving it a rustic and luxurious look. Top-grain calfskin is sanded to remove imperfections, resulting in a smooth and uniform surface, while corrected-grain calfskin is buffed and coated to hide imperfections, creating a more uniform and durable leather.

The tanning process for Italian calfskin is often done using traditional vegetable tanning methods. This involves treating the hide with tannins derived from natural materials such as tree bark, leaves, and fruits, resulting in a soft and supple leather with a rich color and a distinct aroma.

Italian calfskin is highly prized for its quality and versatility, making it a popular choice for luxury goods such as bags, wallets, and shoes. Its durability, softness, and ability to age beautifully over time makes it a top choice for high-end leather products. The natural beauty and unique characteristics of Italian calfskin make it a sought-after material for luxury fashion items.

Full-Grain Vegetable-Tanned Leather

At Frank Clegg, we are committed to sustainability and environmental protection, which is why we choose to use full-grain vegetable-tanned leather in our products. This traditional tanning method uses natural tannins found in vegetable matter to create a durable and environmentally friendly leather. Unlike other tanning methods that use harsh chemicals, vegetable tanning is safer for both the environment and the individuals who work with the leather.

Full-grain leather, especially when vegetable-tanned, retains the natural grain of the hide, making it incredibly strong and durable. It develops a rich patina over time, adding character and beauty to the leather. This type of leather is ideal for creating high-quality leather goods that are not only timeless in style but also long-lasting in quality.

In our products, such as briefcases, bags, and accessories, we use full-grain vegetable-tanned leather to ensure that they not only look great but also stand the test of time. The natural qualities of this leather contribute to the longevity and value of our leather goods, making them a sustainable and eco-friendly choice for our customers. By using this type of leather, we are able to uphold our commitment to sustainability and provide our customers with high-quality, environmentally responsible products.

Measuring Guide for 18mm Watch Straps

When it comes to choosing the right watch strap for your timepiece, accuracy is key. The following measuring guide for 18mm watch straps will help you ensure a perfect fit for your watch, allowing for both comfort and style. Whether you're replacing an old strap or buying for a new watch, it's important to take accurate measurements to ensure the new strap will fit securely and comfortably on your wrist. Follow these simple steps to measure the width of your watch's lugs and determine the perfect fit for your 18mm watch strap.

How to Measure Your Existing Strap

To accurately measure your existing strap, start by using a flexible measuring tape or ruler to measure the length and width of the strap. Record these dimensions in either inches or centimeters, noting any specific features such as buckle holes or padding. Consider the material and style of the strap as well, as this will help you accurately match it with a replacement. If the strap is made of leather, nylon, or any other specific material, make sure to include that detail when looking for a replacement. Additionally, take note of any unique features such as stitching patterns or hardware, as these can also contribute to finding the perfect replacement. Taking these measurements and details into consideration will ensure that you find a replacement strap that matches the size, material, and style of your existing strap perfectly.

Choosing the Right Width and Length for Your New Strap

When it comes to watch straps, there are various widths and lengths available to suit different watch sizes and styles. For smaller and ladies' size watches, the 18mm wide straps are popular and compatible options. It's important to choose the right width and length for a comfortable and stylish fit, as it can greatly impact the overall appearance of the watch.

To measure the width of your current watch strap, simply use a ruler to measure the distance between the inside of the lugs on the watch where the strap attaches. As for the length, you can measure the total length of your current strap, including the buckle and the tail end. When choosing a replacement strap, it's essential to consider both the width and length to ensure it fits securely and looks proportional on your wrist.

Choosing the right size strap is crucial for both comfort and aesthetics. A strap that is too wide or long can overpower a smaller watch, while one that is too narrow or short can look out of place on a larger watch. By considering the width and length of the strap, you can ensure a perfectly tailored look for your timepiece.
