All our straps are made from vegetable tanned calf leather, sourced in some of the best tanneries in Tuscany, Italy. The leather that we use is exclusively top grain leather, which comes from the outermost part of the hide and is considered to be the best part both in terms of look and quality.
The pattern of top grain leather is not perfectly uniform, meaning that two straps cut from the same hide can look slightly different. This type of leather will also age beautifully, developing a unique patina that will add to the personality of the strap as time goes by.
Please be advised that the leather of our straps is not waterproof. You should, therefore, avoid contact with water.
All our straps are handmade in Italy by experienced artisans.
All straps are 2.4 mm thin and very supple. This increases the comfort experience when wearing, as well as when buckling and unbuckling your strap.
The thread used for stitching is 100% cotton, ecru color. Ecru is very similar to light beige.
Every strap comes with a 100% calf skin lining which forms a barrier between the strap and your wrist, therefore increasing durability. The Nero Biglia logo is embossed on it.
Every strap has 6 holes punched in it, each of them having a diameter of 1.4mm.
The side of every strap is finished with paint in the same color of the leather.

QUICK RELEASE SYSTEM
The quick release mechanism (or quick release spring bars) is a system that allows for the quick removal or installation of a strap to your watch. A small oval hole is performed on the strap with a special tool and a spring bar with the quick release mechanism is inserted in the strap. By sliding with your fingernails the oval head to the right, installing and removing a strap becomes an operation that can be done by anyone in a matter of seconds. This system is as safe as using classical spring bars. Many high-end watchmakers, including Patek Philippe, sell their watches with this feature. If your strap is not equipped with the quick release mechanism, you will need a special tool to change your strap, and it is very easy, even for experienced persons, to ruin the strap in the process and/or even worse, to scratch the case of your watch.
Our packaging consists of a matte black sliding box, with a black ribbon to open the box. The Nero Biglia logo is embossed on the box in white color. Inside, the strap is inserted in a 100% cotton pouch of light grey color. All our packaging is Made in Italy.
