OBBI GOOD LABEL MILITARY WATCH BUND LEATHER STRAP IN BLACK (TEA-CORE)
INSPIRED FROM LUFTWAFFE (GERMAN AIR FORCE)
The leather bund (leather piece under the actual strap) was designed by the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) in the 30s to 40s, before WWII. It functioned as a protective piece between the wrist and the metal underneath the watch because aircraft were prone to cockpit fire back then.
We recreate the true meaning of the leather bund by adding onto a Zulu-style Military watch strap, re-designed the securing mechanism to 'Pin-and-Hole', thereby allowing it to be remove quickly yet full secured on wrist.
The leather used on this is from Italy (Tuscany) - Yankee Leather. Full grain, tea-core dyed in strictly environmental friendly tannery (with certificate). Tea-core dyed leathers will reveal original core colour (natural) after some use, resulting in outstanding fading properties, coupled with the natural grains forming patina characteristics.
Dimensions of the Leather Bund: 50mm Diameter.
Dimensions of the Watch Strap: Fitting for wrist circumference 16mm to 19mm wrist.
Recommended maintenance: Use Les Travaux Mink Oil 3 monthly.
