PRODUCT & STOCK

Why should I buy a watch strap from Jacob Hill?

We take pride in our work and make sure that you are getting an amazing, one of kind piece at a fair price compared to others in the market. If you are just looking for something cheap, we are probably not your guy. But if you want something that is made right, and will be a conversation starter, then we would love to take your money.

How do you make your straps?

All of our straps are hand crafted in the USA using traditional techniques and only the finest materials sourced from qualified vendors in the US and around the world.

How Long Does it take to receive my strap?

Shipping times will vary depending on the strap you buy. All ready to ship straps will ship within 48hrs of ordering. Custom order watch straps will take 10-14 business days to produce, then 2-3 days for quality control before shipping to you. Some complex customs will take longer and will be discussed before you order.

Can I get your straps wet?

These are leather products so you should avoid getting them wet. The occasional splash of water should not harm them however as with all leather products, color changes can take place if not cared for adequately.

Where can I find your size guide?

To measure your wrist , take a piece of string, strip of paper or other material that is flexible and wrap it around your wrist until it meets end to end and mark off the distance. Lay that material flat next to a ruler to get your measurement. For a more exact fit, please follow our guide found here.

 

TECHNICAL

Can you put my original buckle on my strap for me?

Possibly, please note that all of our straps taper down in length by 2 millimeters so your current buckle may not fit on our strap. Many original watch straps can taper down as much as 4 millimeters in some cases. However, we maybe able to accommodate your request so please call 205-532-4653 to discuss.

Do you make straps for deployant style clasps?

Possibly, please note that all of our straps taper down in length by 2 millimeters so your current buckle may not fit on our strap. Many original watch straps can taper down as much as 4 millimeters in some cases. However, we maybe able to accommodate your request so please call 205-532-4653 to discuss.

How thick are the straps?

Our traditional straps are generally 2.0-2.5 mm thick.. We feel this thickness is ideal for any size of timepiece without being too thin on larger watches or too bulky on smaller watches. A lot of focus group time went into this.

Do you ship outside of the U.S?

We will currently only ship cow or bison related leather products internationally. All exotics will only be shipped domestically due to CITES limitations currently making exports cost prohibitive. This may change in the future.

 

What is CITES?

CITES stands for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna. This convention was first established in the 1960’s as an international agreement among governments that ensure that the international trade of exotic skins is ethical and does not threaten the animal’s survival or sustainability for the future. These programs have brought several species back from the brink of near extinction, provided jobs in rural communities around the world and given locals the ability to control and protect the habitats in which they reside. While some may disagree with the use of some of these species for food consumption and/or products such as fashion items, in most cases these species are now far more ethically treated than they were prior to CITES regulations having been implemented. The companies that utilize the products derived from these animals have been the driving force behind more and more robust ethical requirements in raising these species and nurturing a growing habitat.
