Seagull1963.org presents: a first exclusive collaboration with Hovini, a new premium leather straps brand. The 2 brothers behind Hovini have been in leather processing for years, but have always been under the radar, with no online presence whatsoever. That’s why we are very proud to announce part of their ‘official’ collection: “the Cross Pattern Leather collection”.
The Cross Pattern Leather is actually 'Saffiano' leather, a leather kind that is known for being used in many fashion designer products (well known for being used in Prada's handbags).
The name Saffiano comes from the crosshatch print that was pressed into the wax that coated the leather after it was heated to about 70°C. So the Saffiano or 'Palmellato' pattern is machine pressed into the leather for 10-15 seconds and finally treated with a protective wax finish rendering the leather very resistant to stains, scratches and water. It is supposed to be water-resistant, if not at least waterproof. We like to play it safe and say: don't swim with it, but washing your hands while wearing a Saffiano leather strap should be no issue.
We keep our stock in Belgium, so we will always ship to you within 1 day using DHL Express. In this way we can ensure 1-3 day shipment within Europe and 5 day worldwide shipment so you will have your watch faster than anywhere else!
Hovini straps are handmade with the finest leather available of its kind.

I Got the 38mm version of the 1963 about 6 weeks ago and wanted to wait and see how I liked it after I’ve worn it for a couple of weeks and I must say, everything is still great. I did change the nato strap a the leather one and it feels a lot better on my wrist. The watch itself is perfect and I wear it daily ever since I got it.
