The Original Racing Speedy

We collaborated with Kaufmann, one of the manufacturer of these exact racing leather straps that were sold on the Speedmaster in the 60/60s, combining the original tools and craftmanship with our vibes. To honor and recreate this awesome design we selected the finest black calf skin with the exact tiny bit of gloss to give rise to the perfect sports watch heritage.
Handcrafted in Germany. Want to use your own spring bars? This strap is also available without a Change-It system, please follow the link

Care instruction

Our leather straps are made of all-natural vegetable tanned leather. There is no chemical coating or waxing on top, which is why they are so very soft and comfortable. This natural quality also causes aging of the leather by sunlight and everyday wear. Every strap gets its own individual patina, which is something we love. Please don’t treat the leather with oil or wax as it ruins the whole nature of the strap. This also comes with a warning: avoid direct contact with water, as it may cause stains. So don’t wear your strap in the shower or when swimming and be cautious of heavy rain or perspiration. We recommend not wearing the strap in the gym.

Installation advice

We advice using a high quality spring bar for installation of our straps. Especially with newer watches, the gap between the case or bezel and the spring bar may be more narrow than on older pieces. To avoid scratches on the leather, we advise you to treat the strap carefully and without force when installing it on your watch. If it does not seem to fit at all, you might need curved spring bars or a different watch strap altogether. If you're unsure about this, feel free to consult with us before placing your order.

Seems a bit loose? Here’s why

As vegetable tanned leather tends to shrink a bit when worn, all our leather watch straps are intentionally designed with a tiny bit more width to prevent them from feeling or looking too small after some wearing. When first installed with your watch, the strap might appear a bit snug – but after a while, it will stretch and fit perfectly between the lugs. For Bulang and Sons, this is a mark of quality and proof of our traditional and natural approach.

Great watch strap

I ordered two leather watch straps from Boulanger and sons. This company is in Europe and I'm in Canada. The straps were ordered on the weekend , that same week they arrived. The straps are top quality leather and craftmanship . You always take a chance on orders site unseen. In this case Bulang and sons exceeded expectations. Excellent says it all.

Delighted with the quality and fast shipping

I’ve been researching and searching for a special leather strap for my Speedmaster so what better than a period strap handmade by the original suppliers of these straps to Omega in the 196o’s. I ordered on Xmas eve not expecting to receive my watch until the new year due to the Xmas shutdown and strikes in the UK so how surprised I was when it arrived in the UK from the Netherlands just 2 business days later. The strap is sublime and has that unmistakable sheen and smell only quality leather has. I chose the short and its perfect for my 6 1/2” slim wrist. I’ll be wearing it for sure to welcome in 2023 in Edinburgh!
Great strap by B&S and Kaufman great job shipping by FedEx.

Quality product with prompt delivery and follow up.

Will definitely buy from Bulang and Sons again. My Racing Black Speedy Leather Strap was exactly what I was looking for. Quality product. Great design. Excellent service. Thanks Bulang and Sons!
