...as an example we'll use an Ostrich Leather Watch Strap from BARINGTON. The brand BARINGTON uses the traditions of EULIT-Werk Staude & Co. KG from Baveria, Germany to create high quality Leather Watch Straps.
By looking at this example you will see how many steps are involved in manufacturing a quality leather watch strap. The products quality is obviously also influenced by the pedigree of the leather used and where it comes from. We therefore especially recommend watch straps made in Europe.
