The birth of a good watch is more than a highly precise mechanical process. In today, people need to fashion, design and other elements of the harmonious deduction of high-quality goods. The wristwatch strap is no longer a simple watch accessory, a detail that watchmakers demand by the standards of the leather industry. They make the straps on your wrist with the painstaking care of making a bag.
Only the perfect combination of machinery and fashion can meet the needs of this era. In addition, the growing personalized requirements of global customers are constantly emerging. The production of the wristwatch strap is like a wonderful ballet of passion woven by a group of craftsmen. It is a living leather production process. In the world of clocks, few people know this process. It's like a wonderful ballet. Overture, leather is stored in an airtight, moisture-retaining, thermostatic warehouse, which, like the leather of a leather bag, is by no means a corner-material for making leather. Inventory contains various materials: goat skin, calf skin, buffalo skin, ostrich skin, and alligator skin. Now, we'll kick off the ballet with a beautiful wristwatch strap.
Delicate, all - made, repetitive labor. It's no less expensive than making a leather bag. The key is to wear it on your hand to match your highly intricate, delicate mechanical object, and to let you truly feel the comfort and dignity of a watch.
The leather is selected strictly and the specification is cut
Act 1: the process of pre-tailoring the watch with two pieces of perfectly textured leather: the longer section of the watch strap is at six o 'clock in the case, and the other end is cut to a fine point. The holes in the watch strap are cut at the same time as the cut. The shorter end of the band is in the twelve o 'clock position of the watch case, and the buckle is on the other end. The process of selecting leather is very strict, and leather with folds, cracks or scratches cannot be used. Also, make sure that the appearance of the two leather bands is the same. For example, the size and appearance of crocodile skin should be the same.
Complete and modify
Act 2: complete and decorate. Peel the skin gradually and evenly until the center is full and the edges are as thin as a piece of paper. Eliminate too thick leather.
Act 3: bonding.
