Welcome to Toshi Straps, bespoke leather watch straps handmade in the South West of England
My leather watch straps are completely handmade – no machines are used in the manufacture of a Toshi Strap. Each strap is cut, sewn and finished individually by hand and made to my customer’s specification using traditional techniques used in the UK by leather workers for centuries. No part of the process is outsourced either – it’s just me and my hand tools working with premium quality leathers to produce the best watch strap possible for you. I am passionate about making watch straps and I believe my passion and attention to detail is obvious from my work.
Although I am best known for making straps for watches such as Panerai, Rolex, Anonimo, Breitling and U-Boat, my straps are suitable for most watches.
If you are new to the site please take 5 minutes looking at the frequently asked questions page. This should tell you everything you need to know about me and the leather watch straps I make, but if there is anything I haven’t covered please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for visiting.
Some recent customer feedback
“One word is all that is needed to sum up the two straps = OUTSTANDING! Highly delighted ……thank you!”
“I picked up my strap from the post office today. I love it. The leather looks even better in person than in the photos on your site and even straight out of the package it feels nice and comfortable. I’m trying not to go strap crazy right away but I’m sure I’ll order from you again sometime in the future.”
“Thanks again for the very high quality. These 2 straps just arrived today. Just as informed. I think Toshi Straps has the best customer service which I have faced from any “web shop”. Thanks, Rich!”
”I’ve fitted the vintage leather one to my PAM372 and it looks wonderful – the greater thickness compared with the standard strap balances out the size of the watch head nicely and makes it appear less massive. I’d say your buckle is slightly narrower than the stock one and again, this makes it less obvious. The leather colour compliments the colour of the hands and indices too. The quality is top notch and your service is excellent too. Needless to say I’m delighted!”
“I thought you’d like to know that I’ve awarded the strap a BBB rating – Beautiful Beyond Belief!! I was quite staggered when the strap arrived and frankly didn’t know whether to put the strap on my watch, buy a better watch, or simply frame the strap and hang it up as a work of art! Wonderful workmanship Rich, and a credit to your skills! Absolutely first rate service and communication, rare in this day and age”
“Just letting you know that I have recieved my strap and I am simply blown away by the quality and craftsmanship of your straps! I never though a watch strap could be such a joy to look and hold.”
“The Dakota strap for my Panerai is impeccably made and the leather feels very high quality. Thank you Richard and keep up the great work!”
