Watch strap in patinated gray crocodile, entirely hand-sewn with a saddle stitch using slate-colored linen thread, lined in gray peach skin. Made to measure, to suit your watch.
Your watch strap in gray patinated crocodile was crafted with the traditional saddlery and leathercrafting know-how of Duret Paris. We have been bringing our exacting quality, subtle style, and eye for perfection to our unique and authentic leather goods for over 25 years. The quality of our leathers and skins is paramount to us, since they will be the cornerstone of the watch strap or accessory you select. The leather of your watch strap or accessory is then dyed the desired color, gray, using natural pigments. A hallmark of Duret Paris, a patinated gray can also be achieved through the application of beeswax. You can pick the type of buckle that best matches your gray watch strap from our choice of gold, palladium or ruthenium finishes. Your gray leather watch strap is equally suited to daily wear or special occasions like a wedding or award ceremony. Whether you choose it from our Classic, Bold, Timeless or Top Notch collections, your gray leather watch strap can be monogrammed with your initials – or someone else’s, if it is to be a gift.
Our watch straps and accessories crafted in crocodile skin have won devotees right across the world – elegant people who appreciate the added value we bring through our superb craftsmanship. Duret Paris has built up a precious store of know-how over the years, and we are experts in handling this hard and durable skin. To make your crocodile watch straps, we use the skin from the belly of the animal up to its tail, but also from the flanks, because these are the thinner, more supple cuts of skin. Most saddlery products and leather goods made with crocodile leather use skins from farm-bred Nile crocodiles or saltwater crocodiles. To do justice to this noble raw material, we dye it with natural pigments that can yield colors ranging from hot pink to the deepest black.
Exquisite patinas have been the hallmark of Duret Paris for over 25 years. The entire patination process is carried out by hand by Mickaël Benarroch and his team of skilled leather artisans, who apply natural pigments and beeswax to achieve the desired effect. Putting a patina on leather is a way of imitating the natural ageing of the animal skin. Patinas can have a classic appearance, or be intended to create effects like old wood, or the marble look of our museum calf. All types of leather can take a patina, and we have applied patinas to belts from leathers as different as calfskin, lambskin, crocodile, python and even ostrich. So whichever of these leathers you choose, Duret Paris can add a patina that will make your belt a truly unique and luxurious accessory.
