ART & HUSTLE

Our collaborative efforts have come full circle. We met the guys from Art & Hustle (A&H Magazine) back in 2013 during the launch of our first collaboration with Logan Zane. We have immense respect for A&H's drive and dedication, and they have inspired us with their uplifting stories/photos of life and business around the world.

With the launch of their first print edition in 2015, we started working on this collaboration inspired by their travels. The punchy orange reminiscent of the dying light during the sunset over the Ponte Vecchio, and the calming blues of urban explorations throughout American cities. Two contrasting places, two complimentary colors, two awesome watch straps. Check out both straps by clicking the links to the right.

TIME FOR A CURE

Time For A Cure was part of a a fund raising campaign by aBlogtoWatch, Marathon, and Crown & Buckle for the Ride To Conquer Cancer in June 2016. The 125 mile charity bike ride took place in Toronto, Ontario on June 11th. Continue reading the full story behind this project by clicking here.

UPDATE: $4,800 donated! Straps are still available, but we have already made the full charitable donation since the ride took place in June. Thank you for supporting this great charitable initiative!!

100% of every sale will be donated to charity, benefiting the Ride To Conquer Cancer and the Prince Margaret Cancer Centre.

OAK & OSCAR

The Sandford is the second watch design from American up-start Oak & Oscar. We were tapped to manufacture the nylon strap supplied with their first offering, the Burnham.

We are on-board again with their follow up effort, the Sandford. Our provided strap is a Premium-style NATO strap in Olive Drab with orange stitching to match the seconds and GMT hand on the watch. It also features prominent Oak & Oscar laser etching on the 6 o'clock metal keeper, with clear visibility while the watch is being worn. You can check out the watch here.

CROWN & BUCKLE x
AUTODROMO

This one was a no-brainer. Bradley at Autodromo has long been a friend of C&B, and we probably blurted out 'yes' before he even finished explaining his design vision for the exclusive nylon strap intended for Autodromo's new watch, the Group B.

The straps feature an element designed by Autodromo that we had never executed prior: a cloth tag sewn to the strap, meant to replicate the style of automotive racing harnesses. These wonderful straps are available exclusively with the Autodromo Group B watch, which you can buy at www.autodromo.com.

CROWN & BUCKLE x
MARTENERO

We were approached by Martenero in early 2013, well in advance of their public launch in 2014. New York-based Martenero's watches now encompass 4 models, each with a myriad of customizable options. Each watch has an beautiful and unique design aesthetic, and in fact our friend Zach from Worn & Wound lent a hand with some of the designs.

C&B supplies Martenero's nylon straps. Each strap has bespoke details picked by Martenero, and are a perfect compliment to their watch models (or any watch for that matter). You can check them out at martenero.com.

ANALOG/SHIFT

C&B's first collaborative strap with analog/shift in 2014 was very well received and has since sold out. In the fall of 2014 we set out to design a follow up collab strap. This arctic camo inspired monochromatic colorway is the result, featuring the same stripe pattern as the original strap.

This strap is an exclusive design only available here at Crown & Buckle. 20mm and 22mm sizes have sold out, but we still have stock of 18mm with polished, brushed, or black PVD hardware. We hope you enjoy this strap!

SUIGENERIC
SPRING 2015

NYC based Suigeneric burst onto the scene in 2013 with a collection of highly attractive hand-waxed canvas straps. Taking it a step farther, their straps feature a slew of patterns, many styled after the latest menswear and high fashion trends. Our interest was piqued, and after getting a chance to meet with them in New York City, doing a collaboration was a high priority for us.

This collection of patterns was designed by us, and built to our normal 3-Ring NATO strap specifications. They are manufactured by Suigeneric in South Korea. Each strap has a self-welt rolled edge, and is meticulously waxed by hand, adding to the durability and water resistance of the strap.

WOODNSTEEL

Dustin Case is the craftsman and mastermind behind Woodnsteel, a small dry-goods shop out of Indiana. Dustin had been buying hardware and buckles from us for a while, when we finally got in touch to see what he was up to.

It turns out he was constructing watch straps with a level of craftsmanship that really impressed us. These straps aren't just hand cut and sewn. Dustin buys natural raw hides that are tanned in the United States, and dyes them by hand. He even goes so far as to brush the hardware himself. The straps are finished off with durable waxed linen thread, also sourced in the U.S. These straps are going to be extremely durable and last for years to come, something that Dustin takes pride in.

FALL 2014

NYC based Suigeneric burst onto the scene in 2013 with a collection of highly attractive hand-waxed canvas straps. This our second (and far from last) collaboration with them.

This fall pattern/colorway was designed by us, and built to our normal 3-Ring NATO strap specifications. They are manufactured by Suigeneric in South Korea. Each strap has a self-welt rolled edge, and is meticulously waxed by hand, adding to the durability and water resistance of the strap.

ANALOG/SHIFT

Our on-going partnership with analog/shift is pretty well documented, so we won't get too far into the origins of this collaboration. This is a military inspired NATO strap that analog/shift designed, and we executed for them. This is a strap that really bridges the gap, looking great on just about any vintage or modern time piece.

The NATO strap is available in 20mm, with multiple hardware finishes. This strap has gotten a lot of love, and we will be considered doing more lug widths in the future. Not to mention some other great upcoming collabs with a/s...

LOGAN ZANE

We spent the first half of 2013 developing a leather NATO strap with Logan Zane, a fine leather goods purveyor in NYC.

After countless samples and revisions, tweaking every detail of the strap, we excitedly launched our collaboration with Logan Zane in June 2013. The first strap was the green camouflage. Limited to 100 pieces, it sold out in just a couple of weeks. In the process, it received a lot of mainstream media attention, something we were very proud of.

Each strap is proudly hand crafted in the United States, in New York City. All of our collaborative straps feature high quality leather sourced in New York city. Many of the leathers are United States tanned. Otherwise, the leather is Italian (such as the green camo).
