A close look between four quality HIRSCH watch straps
The Crocograin watch strap is composed of shiny calf skin with an original crocodile embossing. The natural 2 tone finishing gives it a sophisticated, high end look of a higher priced watch strap.
The strap is available in a huge range of colours making it a popular choice for a variety of watches. Both men and women can take advantage of the Crocograin as it is available in lug widths from 8mm all the way to 22mm.
At only £18.95 the Crocograin is a great choice for those who are looking for the stunning look of a crocodile strap but with the much lower price point of a calf skin watch strap.
Even at it’s lower price point the Crocograin looks great on high end watch brands such as Omega & Cartier. It won’t disappoint in comfort either as it features HIRSCH’s soft glove lining leather, which even after prolonged wear, remains comfortable.
HIRSCH Genuine Croco
Cites is the Convention On International Trade In Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora who’s aim is to ensure that the international trade of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.
HIRSCH is fully committed to the CITES Convention and works closely with related authorities to ensure the principle of “protection through collection”. HIRSCH solely uses alligator and crocodile skins which are processed according to CITES rules and regulations.
At first glance you may not notice the difference between the Crocograin and the Genuine Croco watch straps. The finish on the Genuine Croco is noticeably brighter and much shinier than the Crocograin.
The strap is very pleasing to the eye and goes particularly well with vintage watches (either in black or brown).
The Genuine Croco is made from real, South American Crocodile flank, which is reflected in the price of the strap (£96). Each strap features a mix of smaller and larger scales which gives the strap a very high end, sophisticated look.
The strap tapers down by 2mm from lug to buckle end and features a high quality buckle in either gilt or brushed stainless steel.
HIRSCH Louisiana Look
The Louisiana Look is a popular strap from the HIRSCH range and is available in an impressive 10 colours. The strap is available in plenty of vibrant “summer” colours (red, white and orange) as well as the more traditional black and brown.
Both women’s and men’s watches can facilitate the Louisiana Look, as the lug width ranges from 12mm all the way to 30mm.
The Louisiana Look is made from quality calf skin and features an authentic alligator embossed finish (with a large scale pattern). The straps underlining is comprised of HIRSCH’s softglove lining leather, which ensures a comfortable contact with the wrist.
HIRSCH Viscount Alligator
HIRSCH only use crocodile and alligator skins which are processed in accordance with the CITES rules and regulations (please refer to description under “Genuine Croco” for more information).
The Viscount Alligator is the worlds first watch strap which is water resistant to 100 meters. The strap itself is made from precious, genuine Louisiana alligator skin, which is brushed by hand to give a silky smooth surface. Even the strap loops are embossed further adding to the overall character.
The strap is available in 5 deep colours which work extremely well with the contrasting, white stitching.
Some aspects of the Viscount Alligator are finished by hand, including the bar seam and the safety stitch on the loose loop.
The strap itself is very durable and features a thick padding between 5.6mm and 7.2mm (depending on the lug width of strap chosen).
The Viscount Alligator is perfect for accompaniment to high end watch brands such as Breitling & Omega. The strap is available to order for: £195.
