Don't miss out on our 2016 Cyber Sale! It will be running from Friday, November 25th until Monday, November 28th. Full details to follow!
We were long overdue for some new limited edition straps, so in advance of the re-launch of our American Made line, we made two limited edition 3-ring leather straps. Both are made in America, and feature a suede lining, full stitching, black PVD hardware, and black painted edges. Each color is available in 20mm with only 10 straps per color, and the distressed is also available in 22mm with 5 straps available. These will not be restocked, so grab one before they're gone.
In October, Crown & Buckle was honored to have a booth at the Wind^Up watch fair in New York City. This was only the second year for the show, yet over 15,000 people visited in just 3 days! Wind^Up is easily the largest watch fair in the United States, and we are thrilled to have had a part in it for two years running.
The Crown & Buckle booth was in a great location within the venue. On display were selections from all of our product lines. A large part of our booth was our new Black Label line. It was really cool to see in-person reactions to the Black Label products. Nobody could get over how soft the leather watch rolls were, or how impeccably constructed the straps are! The entire line was very well received.
We also had on display a selection of our renowned nylon straps, leather one-piece straps, our regular line of two-piece straps, and watch tools. Throughout the weekend, we were fortunate to meet a lot of new people, and to see familiar faces that come visit us year after year in New York. We met a surprising amount of attendees that traveled (even internationally) to come to the show!
Big thanks go out to worn&wound for organizing this great show, and having us as a part of it. We can't wait for next year!

All of our Black Label watch rolls and travel pouches have been restocked, with each of the 5 colorways currently available in 1, 4, and 6 watch carrying capacity. Each rolls is expertly crafted in the United States and features plush suede lining to protect your favorite watches while you travel.
Hurricane Matthew is headed right for our area, and we've been busy preparing for the storm. As a precaution, we are closing early today and we will remain closed on Thursday, October 6th and Friday, October 7th. Barring any serious damage or power outages, we are hoping to reopen with our normal operating hours on Monday, October 10th. Please, bare with us as we prepare for and recover from this major hurricane. We will be posting updates over the next few days on our social media accounts.
Our prayers are with all who have been and will be affected by this storm. Stay safe out there folks.
UPDATE 1 (Friday, 3PM EST): Hurricane Matthew has safely passed us. We were very fortunate that a slight deviation east was enough to keep most hurricane-force winds off-shore of our location. With only slight flooding and typical downed branches in the area, we are glad to report we will be re-opening as planned on Monday, October 10th. Thank you for your patience!
UPDATE 2 (Monday, 10AM EST): We are back open! Thank you for your patience with our closure.
