Know How - Established Techniques of Manufacturing

Full Rembordé Strap:

In this process there a lot of craftsmanship involved. In the production of a rembordé (or full-wrapped) strap, the upper leather is turned around the breathable natural cotton fleece and glued and molded. Then the folded upper leather is glued to the lining leather as deep as the fiber to make the strap more hygienic & skin friendly. In the end, all components are stitched together. The strap is very stable, soft and durable.

Semi-Remborde' Strap:

In this process the upper leather is pulled to the bottom line of the lining leather (not-underneath) and is sealed there. The glueing is what holds the strap together, the seam is only for decoration.

Cut Edge Strap:

The leather is punched out or cut into the shape of the strap and then glued. Then the open edges are sealed with colour. This labor intensive technique is reserved for the most exclusive straps. An additional layer is placed on top of the strap. Virtually any leather can be used on this layer, which would be too stiff for conventional techniques. Then the strap is compressed, the edges are smoothened by using heat, sanded down and then painted with edge dye. Loops and buckle flaps are stitched by hand.

Integrated Strap:

In this method the strap is integrated to the watch case, construction of the strap is modeled in such a way that it seems to fuse with the watch case and showcases the flow and design of the watch case. At the production stage plastic accessories are tooled and inserted to give the continuity and visual flow to the case. This aspect of manufacturing can also be incorporated into-Full Rembordé , Semi-Remborde' and Cut Edge Straps.
