To manufacture these watch bands, we use calf leather with a smooth finish. To manufacture this kind of leather, tanneries have to do an exhaustive selection of leathers removing those that have stains or scars as in this kind of finish they cannot be hidden.
In Diloy, we use only stainless steel buckles to fulfil all european regulations. We try to choose the design we feel is the most suitable for every model taking into account whether it is sporty, vintage, classical, etc. If you need a different kind of buckle for your watch, you can take a look to our buckles section.
Style and details
The shape of the leather watch bands, the stainless steel buckle and the stitchings make this strap specially thought for sporty watches.
We use a technique called 'cut' that consists of cutting, glueing and joining every parts of the strap as it was a sandwich. Side edges of the strap have been dyed using a paint special for leather. Diloy applies 5 layers of that paint and we must wait different hours between layers until it is completely dry. Unlike our competitors, the result is that we get an edge of the strap really smooth to touch.
We do not recommend wet the watch bands and, even less immerse with it. We strongly recommend to avoid salty water or chlorine from swimming pools.
Straps are designed to wear a watch in your wrist, avoid bending it in the opposite direction to normal use or bending it more than the natural curvature of the wrist.
Many dyes from leather industry are fat-soluble, so we do not recommend to use lotions in the surface of the straps. Lotions can enter the leather and affect the dye. This happens specially with all colours that have red pigments and even more in those leathers with matt finish than shiny varnished.
