Bespoke handmade lizard leather watch case
These bespoke lizard leather watch cases are designed and entirely handmade by Christopher Clarke in his Shropshire studio. Chris chooses the most select area of the lizard skin to ensure the natural texture and arrangement of the scales are used to their full advantage. The lizard skin is laminated onto Italian shoulder hide from Santa Croce sull’Arno in Tuscany. The hide’s thickness gives the cases their rigidity. Internally the cases have a soft, vegetable tanned, pig skin cushion which is padded with organic fleece and forms the lining to the case’s back. Designed to hold either one or two wristwatches, there is a removable leather separator which can be used to ensure that two watches are kept apart from one another. Also included are two black leather hide bracelet protectors – these leather tongues can be placed between metal bracelets and their watch heads to prevent scratching to case backs.
Where two watches are to be stored simultaneously, we recommend these cases for leather/fabric strap watches with case sizes up to 38mm in diameter. Bracelet watches are generally best stored individually in the cases or in combination, i.e. one strap watch & one bracelet watch. Where two watches are being stored, one is placed head first, whilst the other is positioned strap first.
Christopher Clarke has a passion for vintage watches and has been making leather watch straps for many years. His exceptional watch cases, made exclusively for Black Bough, manage to seamlessly combine luxury with utility and are ideal for stowing in a jacket pocket or bag.
