The bund strap is a stylish and functional watch accessory with a rich history. Originally designed for German pilots during World War II, the bund strap is a protective leather pad that is placed under the watch case to protect the wrist from extreme temperatures.

Today, the bund strap is still a popular choice for watch enthusiasts who appreciate its vintage style and functionality. This bund style is named after Paul Newman, the famous actor and race car driver, who was known for wearing a bund pad with his Rolex Daytona.

If you are looking for a functional and stylish way to wear your watch, then the bund strap is a great option. Pair it with our 2-piece watch straps to give your watch an instant vintage look.

Cut from high-grade full-grain Italian vegetable-tanned leather from one of the best tanneries in Italy. It features a gorgeous random camouflage pattern, as well as natural textures like wrinkles, marks, and pores. Over time, the leather will develop a rich patina, creating a look that is uniquely yours.

Unique Leather Variation

Each COZY handmade leather bund pad is made from a different piece of full grain leather and is hand-dyed, so no two pieces are exactly alike. The color and texture of each pad will vary, making yours truly one-of-a-kind.

Care Information

As long as the leather does not expose to harsh elements such as prolonged exposure to heat and water, you can care for it as little as once every 6 to 12 months. Refer to leather care page for more info.

Additional Notes

Bund pads add thickness to watchstraps, which can make them wear slightly shorter by approximately 1 hole. If you are concerned about the fit of your watchstrap, please order a size larger than you normally would.
