We recently restocked our Kangaroo Leather NATO straps, part of our American Made watch strap collection. Due to supply issues with the leather, we only have a very limited amount of the brown straps in stock. Black straps also available. Shop now in our American Made section.
While inventory lasts, take advantage of 20% off select straps in our Spring Clearance Sale. No code is necessary, and sale prices can be combined with our free domestic shipping offer. Act fast, there are some great options in the sale that will sell quickly.
Have you ever been curious to know the story of how Crown & Buckle came to be? Thomas Lathrop, C&B's founder, recently sat down for a heart-to-heart with Nick from Watch Patina. What was documented is not a history of watch straps, or a review of our products. It's simply a look at what lead Thomas down this path and how Crown & Buckle got its start.
The article is an enjoyable read of a story that up until this point was largely untold. You'll find it interesting if you are new to our brand, and even more so if you are a long-time supporter. Click here to read.
Thanks go out to Nick from Watch Patina for the honor of featuring Thomas and C&B, and to Neil Watson of A&H Magazine for the photo of Thomas on this page.
On January 17th, 2016, the United States Postal Service put into effect it's planned shipping rate increases. Notably, domestic Priority Mail had the highest tangible increase, going from $5.95 up to $6.80. Domestic First Class and Express Mail options also increased, but more marginally. First Class now starts at $2.65, up from $2.40 previously.
Thankfully First Class International, the most popular overseas option used on our web site, has not increased at all for the time being. International Priority Mail and Express Mail rates did increase, with an average increase of 10-12%.
