Vintage watches paired Crocodile Grain watch bands from Strapcode

Crocodile grain leather watch straps or Crococalf watch bands have become increasingly popular among watch enthusiasts due to their premium quality and unique texture. The crocodile skin pattern embossed calf leather using on these watch bands are sourced from Italy, guaranteeing that only the most superior leather is utilized in their manufacturing. The end result is a remarkable feel and texture, making them a preferred choice for those who desire nothing but the finest.

Genuine crocodile skin is widely regarded as the best leather for watch bands, but it is also prohibitively expensive for many people. Crocodile grain leather watch straps offer an affordable alternative that captures the look and feel of genuine crocodile skin without the exorbitant price tag. These watch bands pair well with vintage or classic watches, such as vintage Jaeger Lecoultre 1901 Ultra-Thin (17mm), vintage Vacheron & Contantin 18k Thin Dress watch 6100 (18mm), vintage Omega Seamaster or Omega Seamaster Geneve (lug 18mm) , vintage Bucherer Chronometer Ref. 1530A (18mm) , vintage Longines Ultracron Date vintage cal.431 (18mm), vintage 1964 Bulova (18mm), vintage Eberhard Fiat Time-Only cal. 262-1 (19mm), those with thinner watch cases. They bring a sense of refinement and grace to any vintage or classy watches, elevating its overall visual appeal.

Crococalf watch bands come in three main styles, each with its own unique features and benefits. The first style is a flat profile strap with a slight taper of 1mm. This style is available in a super rare lug size of 17mm, making it an ideal choice for watches with smaller lug widths.
