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.
 
 

Details

Inspired by 1920’s – 1960’s styling and firmly embedded in the roots of heritage, spirit and authenticity, Alexander Leathers recreates these jackets, previously worn by icons of the big screen and the military heroes of WWl and WWll for the enthusiast, the fashion conscious and for future generations to enjoy.

Our method of manufacture is very labour intensive, each and every jacket we produce is individually hand cut and crafted by one of our artisans right here in Selkirk, Scotland. Our team are not constrained by either time or cost in preparing each individual jacket. Our commitment is to ensure that each and every jacket that leaves our factory will become a valuable companion, built to last a lifetime of wear for a customer who values the highest quality craftsmanship over inferior materials and cost cutting production processes.

 !!!  OPEN  !!!

After an extended closure to catch up and then take a break, GGB is now open !  I expect a rush and do not know at this stage how long I will be open before I need to snap off the ordering proccess for the next catch up phase. I suggest you be quick as I expect a rush !!  :-)  Anybody with email requests I will get back to ASAP, please do give me a nudge if you do not hear back within a few days. 

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
