Bell & Ross ~ Brown

Bell & Ross ~ Brown

Designed and made primarily for B&R watches they will of course suit many other large watches with similar lug configurations. Available in 22 and 24mm lug widths and in any section length. Manufactured from bleached veg tan leather, hand stained, burnished, oiled and stitched. 

Straps are 4mm thick and I incorporate a lead in, which is a thinner section on the tail to aid strapping up through the keepers. Strap is fitted with a chunky thumbnail brushed buckle via spring bar and finished with thick tan stitch. 

IMPORTANT : Colours are approximate. Because of the nature of hand staining leather and also the differences in computer monitors I cannot guarantee 100% there will be an exact match to what you have in your hand and what is shown on your screen. 

RETURNS : I am confident that you will love these fantastic leather straps and enjoy wearing them over the years. Returns/refunds will be accepted only if the strap comes back to me unworn and as new.

Present lead time for all bespoke items is around

2- 3 weeks 


Depending on what is in front of your order this lead time may fluctuate either way a little so please be aware of this when placing an order. 

Please also note,  for all GGB BESPOKE goods the green IN STOCK tick only means I have materials to make up your order.

When I have reached capacity and to reduce backlogs I will close off orders to all bespoke made goods but you will then have the option to be notified when I 're-stock'


Lead time does not affect 'off the shelf' items such as Phoenix NATO's and tooling which will go at the next postal run from order date   

Emails : I get a lot of email which I struggle to keep on top of sometimes. I do try and answer in a timely manner but please give me a nudge again if I do not respond within a few days.

Wrist measuring guide
When measuring the wrist for your wrist size it is important to get this as accurate as you can to help save any issues with fit.

Please measure the wrist with the tape measure touching all the way around the wrist but not pulled too tightly.

Please do not be tempted to add any to the finished length. I build the straps around a metal wrist/Jig that I set to the wrist size you give me.

Lug-to-Lug explained

Simply measure from the centre of one spring bar or tube, across the watch (north to south) to the centre of the other spring bar or tube. This is your Lug-to-Lug measurement.

Strap Adjustment

Each gasgasbones strap is made to your wrist size. I incorporate around 10-15mm of adjustment in each strap for use between warmer and cooler days.


The build process represents around 1.5 to 2 hours per strap and is completely hand made from start to finish here at GGB HQ, Surrey UK.

Each strap is hand cut from bleached veg tan leather using the correct template.  It is first thinned where required at the tail lead in and scoops taken out for the bars or screw. The end sections are glued into position ready for the next stage. Keepers are thinned and made ready for colouring and the strap has its thread holes and buckle holes punched.

The strap is then stained in the correct colour and set to dry. The next stage is to feed the leather with some leather feed and then burnish the edges to smooth them out. I do this with a hickory stick and good old fashioned elbow grease. This process also imparts subtle tones in the leather meaning unlike off the shelf pre tanned leathers, no two GGB leather straps from this range are ever the same.

Once the strap has been dried and oiled the strap is stitched and size stamped. After a final check and rub over I apply a spot of dubbin to further feed the leather and also impart a lovely shine.

All you need to do is strap it up and enjoy.

 ***  I will be OPENING on the 26th Aug for all bespoke GGB goodies  *** 

 When open bespoke orders will be queued in the usual way. However, from the 26th Aug I am taking a holiday so I will not be able to ship off the shelf goods if they are ordered in this period. 

If this is your first time here, GGB is run by just myself and it is usual for me to have sporadic opening times and to have various items enabled or disabled.  I need to do this to throttle orders and keep leads times to an acceptable level. If at any time I'm closed or you find an item 'out of stock' and you would like to be notified when I open up again then please use the 'be notified' function in any of the strap pages (under item price)  This will ping an email to you the instant I re-enable ordering.

I thank everyone for their continued support and patience.   Carl 'Bones' Evans
