The Touchstone Leather Band is part of Meridio's Vintage Collection, and is made from soft and elastic calf's leather with a decidedly antique-looking patina. Calf's leather is a particularly practical material that develops a beautiful, unique finish over time. Deep gray band with light gray stitching.
Italy is among the ‘big-four’ fashion capitals of the world: Paris, Milan, London and New York. Italian leather, however, is in a class by itself. Distinguished by its selection of high-quality hides and a centuries-old leather-making tradition, Italian leather can cost upwards of six times that of a lesser leather.
Florence is particularly famous for its leather and happens to be the capital of Tuscany where Meridio — makers of luxurious accessories for the Apple Watch — is located. Meridio’s small assemblage of artisans hand-makes its bands in an ancient tannery there. The company prides itself on combining the practicality and innovation of the Apple Watch with the inherent quality of Italian leather manufacturing.
Available in 42 mm Apple Watch size only with a choice of six adapter colors.
Each of Meridio's straps is produced in compliance with international laws regarding animal protection and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
