Straps by bros Manifatture of Italy
As I've stated in many prior posts, one of my main objectives is to continually provide a wider selection of straps to the watch enthusiast community. .
This philosophy is evidenced by my introducing 10 new Bros straps to the US Market in the last 9 months:
• Cuiou Volanato
• Cocco Louisiana Opaco
• Cocco Summer
• Principe de Galles
• Vecchio Cuiou
For the many of you who have emailed me over this period complimenting these new additions, thank you very much. I absolutely love getting emails like that and gives me more incentive to continue to make new additions to my lineup.
All Bros pricing includes free delivery in the US*, a fresh set of matching spring bars and a free mini spring bar tool (for straps $25 & over, add $1.00 if you'd like one anyway (sorry, vendor just increased the price)).
PS. Here's a shot of the "mini spring bar tool" (and it's big brother, the regular length "gold" series). The "mini" is shaped like a regular size spring bar tool, but only about 3" long. Both have an "ultra small" forked end for easy strap removal and poker on opposite side. I found this type about 6 months ago after a great deal of due diligence and been giving them away ever since, for free! The "Mini" is available for all strap purchases $25 and above.
Thanks for looking.
This is a cut edge strap characterized by a medium/heavy pad and made in volanato leather. Very detailed stitching with a contrasting color tone (lighter tone then the leather). The extra stitch at the lug end adds a little character to the strap & is visible when wearing your timepiece. Available in 18mm, 20mm, & 22mm in black, Bordeaux (center - brown with a hint of red) and medium brown = NEW 20mm blue. $35.00 each with the usual freebies.
Here's a nice shot of the Cuoio Volanato in action…
NEW! I named this one. Semi-remborded, padded, matte Louisiana Alligator grain, comparable to the Oklahoma per Bros spokesperson. Larger keepers and stitching in detail. Thickness about 4.9mm, lengths 70mm x 115mm. Suitable for all watches including sport. Available in 18, 20 & 22mm in Black, Brown, Med. Brown and Gold. $29.
This is a waterproof, anti-allergic leather strap with an eco lining. It is just awesome. Not much of a taper on these, perfect for large watches, sport or dress. Excellent construction with stitched keeper. Colors: black, brown and cognac. Sizes 24x22, 22x20, 20x18…$25.00 each with the usual freebies.

Toro - Buffeleder
This is a padded strap made of buffalo leather. Similar to the popular Volanato but in bull leather, a noticeably different texture and a heavy white cord stitch. But, this strap is also available in extra long
. 20mm in black, brown and gold in regular (75x115). & xtra long (85x125). $30.
NOTE: 20 gold, 20 black XL and 20 brown XL are sold out.
Vecchio Cuiou NEW SIZES ADDED!
I am just going to call this "the vintage". This strap looks like it was made back in the 40's or 50's. You won't believe how soft and pliable it is. Perfect for your vintage watches. Now available in 18, 20 & 22 in black, brown and gold.
Thickness: 4.0+, lengths 75mm x 120mm.
This is the highest priced leather strap produced by BROS$35
Also, these straps take nicely to a little sandpaper if you want to subtract a few decades (or is it "add") to the vintage appearance of the strap. You may also take advantage of my FREE STRAP WRECKING
Magnum (Breitling Style)
