One of our most common requests has become a reality! CHEVRON™ adjustable straps are now available in 19mm widths! To start out we have four of our most popular colorways available: Night, Stone, Night + Crimson, and Night + Harvest.
Black Label Season 3 straps are discounted 15% off while supplies last. All Black Label straps are only made in one run, so once they sell out, they are gone for good. No code is needed; the prices are marked down on our site.
We are making way for Season 4, which is going to be the strongest collection yet. Coming soon-ish.
FedEx 2 Day Air shipping is now available for all domestic orders. Coming in at just $6.99, it represents a great value for expedited shipping. This new service includes door to door tracking, advanced intercept and hold for pick up options, and up to $100 of insurance included at no extra charge*.
As always, orders placed Monday through Friday will ship the same day if placed before 3:00 PM EST.
* Up to $100 of insurance included at no charge, provided by FedEx. The value of insurance provided equals the value of the contents of the package up to $100. For example, an order for one $32.00 strap would have $32.00 of declared value on the package. The customer is responsible for filing the claim and seeing it though to reimbursement. Filing an insurance claim can be done online on the FedEx web site.
Meet Chromexcel Ruby. She is fire engine red, makes a statement, and will easily pull out any red accent in your watch. Chromexcel leather is very soft to the touch and has a slight stretch for comfort. It's made right here in the U.S. by Horween Leather. If you have a watch with any red details on the dial, this leather NATO will be the perfect compliment!
The Walnut Boxcalf is a C&B staff favorite. This is a strap we're truly proud of. We used "box calf" leather, known for having virtually no stretch and great characteristics for a watch strap. The leather takes a few times of being worn to break in and mold to your wrist. Once it does, you won’t want to take it off. The Walnut Boxcalf strap will effortlessly take your favorite watch to the next level.
You may have noticed that over the last week or two our stock levels of Chevron straps were depleting rapidly. At this time we are completely sold out again. Thankfully, we have a new shipment expected to arrive in late January. The shipment should also include the much sought after Night + Harvest color, as well as the brand new Stone grey color.
Head over to the Chevron section of our web site and click on any of the colors if you would like to sign up to be notified as soon as they are back in stock. This does not sign you up to a recurring newsletter or anything like that. Just one simple email will be sent once that product is back in stock. You will find the signup link in red text, to the right of the description, underneath the photos.
We appreciate your patience and the outpouring of support we've gotten for this awesome new product line! We expect the next shipment to last us 4-6 weeks of being in stock. However, we do anticipate we will fully sell out again before the following shipment arrives, due to extended factory closures during the Chinese New Year. Fingers crossed that after CNY, we should be smooth sailing for the rest of the year!
Unfortunately, some time right after the New Year, Crown & Buckle's shipment confirmation emails started getting caught in Gmail's spam algorithm. The first order confirmation email will reach the Inbox fine, but the subsequent shipping confirmation email will likely go to the Spam folder.
Please rest assured that we are still shipping out orders same-day Monday through Friday by 3pm EST, and weekend orders ship out the following Monday. If you use Gmail for your order email, please expect it to land in your Spam folder.
When you find the email in Spam, it is helpful to us if you mark it "Not Spam" so it goes back to your Inbox. This will help the Google algorithm "re-learn" that the shipping confirmation email is not spam. Thank you!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Crown & Buckle! As we celebrate with our friends and families, the C&B offices are now closed until Wednesday, December 26th. New orders will be shipped out and emails will be replied to when we re-open on the 26th. In the mean time, we wish you a holiday season filled with warmth, comfort and good cheer!
As a side note, we are running low on Chevron straps again! Our next restock will not be until mid-to-late January, so be sure to get your orders in for Chevron straps. Some models will undoubtedly be selling out within the next week.
