The Water Resistant Alligator

Posted on May 15, 2009 by Linde Werdelin

Our talented strap supplier developed a brilliant new technique for our alligator straps. The new technique offers a water resistant surface which also protects the strap from dirt and sweat.

This new technique results in a longer lasting alligator strap and is a great benefit to our watches as these are meant for sport and leisure and hence exposed to a lot of wear and tear. Also the new technique keeps the strap nice and soft, contrary the consensus that a leather strap gets stiff and hard over the years.

The pictures shows one of these new straps after being kept in the water tank for 24 hours – and the result is impressive!
