Horween Chromexcel Brown Calfskin Leather with Matching Lining and Hand-Stitching #INS-HOR81

Toscana's new watch strap is made with high grade Chromexcel black Horween leather. The Chromexcel dying technique results in an effect that when you twist or bend it, it changes hues. It features white color stitching and a matching Horween lining. Requires very little time to break-in! Perfect for your pilot watch or sport watch. Cut edge design. 2mm thick. Polished stainless steel buckle. 80mm x 120mm.

Chromexcel is the original pull-up leather; using time honored techniques and formulas that were developed nearly 100 years ago. Chromexcel is still produced in the United States using a bark retannage from a proprietary recipe, and then genuine hot stuffed with our secret blend of natural oils and greases. Chromexcel is characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand rubbed finishes. Made to this day with old world craftsmanship, modern Chromexcel carries on a long history of superior comfort and durability.

If you haven't heard of Horween, they have been based in downtown Chicago for the last century. Horween makes some of the finest leather in the world. If you've ever thrown an official regulation football, you've handled Horween leather.

    Great but thin

    Posted by Andrew on Aug 11th 2021

    This strap is very comfortable with an almost silky feel to it. This strap is also very thin for this style. I was expecting something thicker - rustic. Overall great product.

    Great service!

    As advertised, problem-free delivery. Perfect fit with the deployant clasp also purchased - initially I'd ordered 20mm clasp but at my request they double-checked against the buckle end of the strap and changed the clasp to 18mm to make it fit. Marc has always been great at responding to any questions... customer service obviously is a priority.

    Great strap. It's soft and malleable, the color is what I wanted and it looks great on several of my watches. The entire experience was great!

    Lovely Leather Strap Upgrade

    Posted by Melvin Hughes on Jul 1st 2019

    When I needed recommendations on a leather strap upgrade, the first on Marc's list was this Horween Chromexcel Leather strap. It is even better than Marc described. The leather is incredibly soft and literally changes before your eyes as you flex it. It is a great addition to my 20mm leather strap choices!

    watch band

    Posted by kenneth light on Oct 25th 2018

    would have given 5 stars but band holes are too small for spring bars.
