Ever felt your metal strap catch the hairs on your arms? Or never completely fit the shape of your wrist? You can do so much to make a metal strap comfortable but at the end of the day, it will never be as good a soft leather strap. A full grain leather watch strap will mold to the shape of your wrist. 


The majority of watch enthusiasts would say that the most hardwearing type of watch band would be the metal straps and they wouldn't be wrong. However metal bands scratch very easy meaning that they can look scruffy quite quickly. Full grain leather watch straps are as hardwearing a skin. When they do get scratched, the scratch will fade over time. As long as its looked after correctly, a leather watch strap can last many years.


Leather watch straps are by far the most customizable watch straps. You can pick the colour and finishing of the leather. The colour and style of the stitching and the buckle. Occasionally, you will find a black or blue metal watch strap however these show scratches very easily. There is little out their as customizable as a leather watch strap.
