Watch Strap How-To
One of our best selling items is our watch strap. It’s a minimalist design that uses a simple button screw to secure the strap in place. It looks great and creates less bulk than a traditional buckle. The leather is soft on your wrist, but due to the oils in the leather, it retains good strength and durability to the outdoor elements. All great qualities for a watch strap.
How to wear it:
Since the button does have a little depth to it, we recommend positioning the button so it sits on the outside of the wrist. This is not only for comfort, but it looks great in that position as well. This means you’d place your watch face near to the single punch with the slit in it and that hole to the left of your watch face if you wear your watch on your left wrist (opposite for those of you who wear your watch on the right wrist). At this point you can decided where to position the button screw and place it in the correct hole so it fits you perfectly. Any remaining part of the strap will be underneath so it’s tucked neatly out of the way.
Keep the Button Screw secure:
We love the custom fit the button stud screw offers, but realize there is a drawback - keeping it tight! Once you’ve determined the best position for the button stud, hunt down some clear nailpolish. Remove the button stud and put a light coating of nailpolish on the threads of the screw and replace the button on the strap (being sure you get it back in the correct hole you’ve choosen for your perfect fit). Give it a little extra snug tightening with a screwdriver and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes to ensure it’s fully dried. This should keep the button in place so you don’t have to worry about it coming loose. Additionally, this is not permanent, so if you need to change the position of the button, with a little extra effort, you can unscrew the button and change it’s position at a later date.
