This is our most totally unique and limited edition watch strap! These are made from an ultra unique and extremely rare dark brown Swiss army pouches, used in 1930th/1980th. The pouches have really rare stamps with the year of the pouch production. Let us know in the comments field if you prefer the band without the stamp, we will cut it from the different part.

They range in many shades of brown from a very light orangish tinted brown to a very sophisticated dark brown. The leather thickness is about 4 mm. The watch bands' leather is soft and will not break during wearing. The watch bands will last a lifetime, even through the toughest of conditions. We keep the construction very simple with 1 piece of vintage leather and your buckle of choice.

Width (lug/buckle): 20/16 mm, 22/18 mm, 24/20 mm

Length:

small 110/70 mm

medium 120/80 mm

large 135/80 mm

custom (please, comment)

Free custom color stitching.

Every leather piece is unique and might differ from the image. It is totally unique watch band and you will never meet the other the same watch band. Images are from the made-to-order watch bands, each is unique and is hard to repeat since all leather pieces are different in tone.

We need 5-10 business days to get the ammo watch band ready (due to extra leather oil processing).

Swiss ammo is very soft and durable. It is waterproof, however, swimming in leather bands is not recommended.

PS The watch is not included in the listing. We sell only hand-made watch band.

PPS Please, mention in the comments if you prefer more orange or darker leather. This listing is for the band in a similar color and thickness. In case you want a plain band, without army stamps and holes, leave a comment when placing an order.

NB! Ammo straps are made of real vintage leather from 1900th-1980th. The leather might get dry and requires special leather care balm to avoid drying and breaking. The leather balms also increase longevity of the leather straps and make them softer. We have tested and highly recommend applying small amount of natural Smith's Balm (made of organic cocoa butter, beeswax and 100% pure sweet almond oil) weekly to the valuable Ammo watch band.
