Shell Cordovan is the top tier leather available, before the category of exotics. It comes from the hind of a horse, and because the fibres are packed so densely together, the leather that results from that is incredibly durable. While Shell Cordovan is usually a stiff leather, when made in the Slim style, it is very flexible and a great companion to your dress watch.

The Shell Cordovan we use comes from Shinki Hikaku tannery in Japan. Typical of most shell cordovan, it has a high gloss finish. Unique to Shinki Shell, the surface is extremely uniform and clean, with a beautiful depth of colour. This leather is so durable that it is likely to last as long as your mechanical timepiece!

Excerpt from Strap Guide by Sam: "Between its lustrous finish, excellent durability, and deep coloring, I really like shell cordovan. The blue is a unique hue, and unlike other versions of “shell” straps I’ve encountered, this one does not feel overly dressy. I also appreciate the subtle blue-blue contrast stitch, it’s a fun touch."
