Vintage Pilot Bund Leather "Onyx Black"
This design came way far back from the 1920s and got really popular around the 1970s. The leather cuffs were designed in this way to prevent discoloration of brass watch cases from sweat. Worn by pilots because the thick leather pads can prevent the bare wrist from getting uncomfortable when the cockpits of fighter and bomber aircraft gets very hot or cold inside.
Meticulously handcrafted with top-grain Italian calfskin which produces slight patina overtime. Smooth finishes with subtle patina over pulls and bends over a prolonged period to create a vintage and distressed graining to accentuate the look of the watch.
An excellent choice to pair with your vintage or modern or chronograph pieces - Omega Speedmaster, Rolex Daytona, Tudor Heritage Ranger, Seiko Chronographs.
