This solid leather cuff is handmade from a single piece of thick, quality 8 to 9 ounce Italian cowhide. The cuff is watch-capable, meaning you can mount a watch on one of the two bands, or just use it as a cuff bracelet. This cuff features a Norse Helm of Awe design, a protective and intimidating bindrune. The ægishjalmr, as it is named in Old Norse, was magical iconography that the Vikings would inscribe on the inside of their helmets, to ward off their own fear and to inspire fear in the hearts of their enemies.
SIZING - This cuff is adjustable for wrist sizes from 6.75" to 9". The body of the cuff is 2.5" wide.
We offer two inner strap sizes, to fit different pin sizes of watch if you are using the cuff that way:
The STANDARD inner band fits watch pins 15 to 19 mm.
The WIDE inner band fits watch pins 20 to 25 mm.
If you aren't using the cuff to mount a watch, choose the standard inner band if you want a thinner strap and smaller buckle, or the wide inner band if you want a wider strap and a chunkier buckle.
If you are mounting a watch, ensure your watch face is no more than 50 mm (2") in diameter (from pin to pin), and that there is some space between the pin and the face for the band to weave through.
Generally most watches designed for leather or replaceable bands will fit just fine. If you are unsure of fit, consider bringing the strap to a jeweller or clocksmith, as they will be able to point the right faces out to you and mount them for you.
When applying the watch face, simply weave one of the inner bands through the gap between the pin and face, underneath, and up through the other pin, then down into the slot.
If you find you have extra inner band after finding your comfortable setting, note that we make the inner bands with a waterproofed leather, so they can be trimmed without needing to be resealed.
