Making an Equus Handmade Alligator Watch Strap

Making an Equus Handmade Alligator Watch Strap

See our Alligator (and other) watch straps here –

Take a glimpse in to the Equus workshop as we make a handmade leather watch strap from start to finish with the traditional hand skills and tools of the saddler and sellier. The work is deceptively simple yet incredibly precise, the materials beautiful yet durable, timeless yet ever changing. The techniques we use are time consuming and take years or decades to master, our products are a labour of love. In an age where luxury is often defined only by a logo and price tag an Equus strap is different, handmade, hand stitched quality, made to last, made with passion and craftsmanship, not with a machine.

  1. Y LOVED IS #1 COME TO PUERTO RICO ❤💙💚💛💜💛💚💙❤👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  2. Working with leather myself I find this an enormous treat… I think visiting you guys would be on the top of my wishlist if it were possible. Just amazing…

  3. Beautifully done but I have to ask myself, poor guy is probably getting pennies on the dollar for that strap while the company rakes in the bulk of the money passed on to the consumer. I'd rather pay him directly then a multiple of middle people that jack up the price. Just my 2 cents.

  4. Wow Great Project! Maybe you are interested in my Handmade Blue Leather Watch Strap:

  5. As ugly and quite unfashionable i find alligator leather to be, you guys made me want to buy one of your watch bands purely based on this video and witnessing the level of craftsmanship that goes in behind it.

  6. good evening! I really like the process of creating the product by you. And besides the process I was very affected by the sound. Can you please tell me what microphone was recorded sound?

  7. wow!!!! I now appreciate more every leather item i have. Salute to everyone who make such an amazing item. it's a craft an art. RESPECT 🙂

  8. Do you sharpen your own tools? I imagine that is a fairly simple looking process that is actually difficult and takes a lot of precision work.

  9. Is there any Equus Leather store in India? How can I get these beautiful leather products?

  10. I can spot an Omega from a mile away! Planning on making my Planet Ocean am orange gator strap this year!
