Made of 316L steel, Everest’s incredibly precise stainless steel end link is made to perfectly connect the leather watch band to a Rolex case. While other after market straps leave an unsightly gap between the case and the strap, Everest bands are designed to fit your luxury watch seamlessly and perfectly. The steel end link pays homage to the original oyster link on a Rolex bracelet because keeping the essence of a Rolex is a key feature.
The leather is Italian vegetable tanned leather. Vegetable tanning is an old tradition. The secrets are passed down from generation to generation that transform hides using methods combining old world tradition with a little modern day technology. Italian leather is the only choice when it comes to choosing an elegant and high quality watch band for your Rolex.
The vegetable tanning process begins with an ingredient called tannins. Tannins are known for their antioxidant properties and are a natural one found in various plants. The hides used were from animals that were used for meat products; they weren’t killed specifically for tanning. The process takes an average of 40 days from start to finish to produce a fine vegetable tanned leather product. The result is nothing short of a luxurious leather product.
From there, it takes another journey involving a leather craftsman several weeks to turn it into a beautiful watch strap worthy of the Rolex it’s attached to. The craftsmanship is slow and methodical just as it was centuries ago. One of the reasons why these straps look so beautiful is over time it absorbs the proteins of the person wearing it and will add to the unique look that is unmistakable quality. After all, this isn’t just another strap of leather, this is a watch strap of impeccable time honored quality and tradition.
The steel end leather watch strap is finished with a 316L stainless steel buckle. It mimics the oyster style look of the end link. The buckle is secured using a strong spring bar.
