The leather of Sturgeon: use and characteristics, examples of straps watches, complete color chart ABP...
Watch straps and skins of Sturgeon.
When we say "sturgeon" you inevitably think "caviar". Nevertheless, you should know that this fish skin (that can live up to eighty years) is also used in luxury leather crafting, especially in wristwatch business.
Watch strap in sturgeon skin.
The sturgeon is impressive long-limbed noble fish animal -which lives alternately offshore and in river- has a snout with sensory barbs. Of course this is the female fish that supplies the famous caviar (Sevruga, Osciètre and Beluga whale). It can be up to three meters long, weigh up to 300 kg and live up to 80 years! We list about twenty species in the world. At ABP, the sturgeon leather comes from breeding fishes based in France (Gironde) and is used to make watchstrap. This skin is marked by a character so powerful as the imagination which gets free of it. Warm colors, vintage and old-looking leather, as marked in the hot iron. And of course, the major "caviar" cliché associated to this fish that you’ll not miss to emphasize during a cocktail party or special occasion such as Christmas or New Year’s Eve… Testing in the same time your spoon of Beluga whale from Petrossian.
