The distressed example that is seen here was in daily (ab)use over a period of 6 months to see how it evolves. The strap was really pushed to its limits, and it shows! As long as you don‘t wear your strap whilst building a house with your own hands or doing heaps of dishes on the daily, it will certainly not age like this. But if you’re going for this look, you will really have to go all in!

This strap is also available with 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.

Worth the money so far.

Great looking strap. Really dressed down in a good way. I have mine on a white dial Aqua Terra. Looks super casual now. Hardware is good not great. Stitching is great, super comfortable with very little break in. Curious to see how long it lasts. Shipping to the US was quick. Ordered Saturday, was shipped same day and arrived Wednesday with standard shipping.

Absolutely perfect

Just purchased this for the second time. The first one I found used not too long ago. I loved it so much that I made sure to get a second one from the Bulang and Sons website. I now have a ripstop strap on two of my main everyday watches. Comfortable and beautiful at the same time. Shipping was fast to California. My long search for the perfect everyday strap is finally over. Thank you Bulang and Sons.

Very Nice!

The Ripstop is a VERY NICE watch strap. I wasn't sure what to think about cloth in the beginning, but man, I'm so glad I got this one. Love it. I hope it will stay that way, but currently I don't see any reason why it shouldn't. Going for another Bulang & Sons strap soon. At a first glance they might appear to be a bit pricy, but they are worth every penny. Bulang & Sons are now my go to strap source. Shipping is very fast from Germany! Vielen Dank
