Hodinkee Cooper

Dress Up Your Tool Watch With These Hardy Leather Straps

January 6, 2020 Watches By

Watch authority Hodinkee’s new Cooper leather strap collection, according to their announcement, “might just be the most durable strap we’ve ever produced.” It’s made of the same type of leather that’s used for horse saddles and harnesses, with premium materials and labor-intensive techniques. The result is soft but sturdy, with a natural grain, and it’s the type of tasteful strap that’ll make you want to dress up a fancy tool watch.

Specifically, the Cooper straps are made using select hides from North American cattle of European stock and undergo a “hot stuffing” process. This means they’re saturated with natural waxes and oils to hold up better to things like sweat and humidity. The Cooper straps come in a range of hues and sizes with different stitching options, and they range in price from $155 to $165.
