At Hodinkee, we think about the straps we put on our watches almost as much as the watches themselves. In fact, making straps we love for the watches we love is the origin story of the Hodinkee Shop. Now, we’re introducing a new strap line to the collection: The Gambier. It’s a calfskin leather strap made in France. Here’s the thing about French calfskin: It’s thin, but tough. The leather is cut slim, making for a flexible strap that drapes around the wrist. It’s still a tough leather, though: it’s hard-wearing and will hold its shape over time. The leather has a subtle pebble texture to give it a little personality and make for a strap that’s not too dressy. However, the tonal (matching) stitching of the Gambier keeps the look subdued.
And look at those colors! From bright blue or green to the more subtle tones of brown and black you’d expect, there’s a Gambier option for every occasion, especially when you consider its hypoallergenic and sweat-resistant characteristics. Take a closer look at our newest strap collection in this edition of The Spec Sheet.
