Recently we are seeing many straps with fancy designs, beautiful, modern, new trends, the world of straps is a new hurricane is all for such innovations. But many times we need, any strap more typical for not stolen protagonism to the watch, without losing the quality an wearing a good wrist strap.
This is the case of the strap “Grey Arillo” by Gunny manufacte. A simple strap, with the composure of traditional 5-hole strap and stitching in vintage style, with Italian Leather.
The price at the website of Gunny Are: $179.99 include standard buckle.
Thickness: approx. 5mm on padded area and thin down to 3mm. You can request for thinner if you wish. (The strap in the review are without padded area)
Gunny manufacture, has aged the strap and just giving an exquisite vintage touch. The strap is thin, with a thickness in my opinion a bit small (if we talk about a watch “diver” in 47mm) but yet for a vintage watch is perfect
The color of this strap its grey/brown, with a amazing patina vintage, the stitching are in a pearl dark grey with brushed buckle.
Well. ok.. the strap is Ok, but, the real big deal of this strap are the small details. Many people ask to me for what Gunny are my favourite brand in straps, and it´s easy; THE QUALITY.
I know the manufacture of Gunny Straps in person and know the way of the making, awesome 100% hand made, and every strap are unique. But the most important are the finished of the straps, simply perfect like a machine creator of straps. See the pics.
ALL the work you see here its HAND MADE. Probably you see the stiching and think are made in a machine, but the reality is made a hand, same of the vintage aspect. The real leather are new, but after make, the department of patina make the miracle for make a older piece in a new leather. Thats great and amazing work.
If you are collector or expert in leather straps, I don´t need explain mjore about the work in this strap. The “Arillo Grey” is not a Outstandig strap in design, color or aspect, but, are one GREAT scenification of the sober straps with style, returning to “The innocence” of the world of straps…
