10 Great Horween Watch Straps for Timepieces New and Old

February 28, 2018 Style By Photo by Worn and Wound

Made with traditional methods (and a few logical modern production upgrades), Horween leather is the material du jour for menswear staples of all kinds. With both durability and a patina that wears just so, it’s an artisan leather that works particularly well as a strap material for both vintage and new watches. Before you scoff at the “a” word, consider this: Chicago-based Horween is the longest continuously operating tannery in America. If that’s not worthy of pairing with your watch, what is?
