Who we are
Hello and welcome!
My name is Antonio, I am a watchmaker and I live in the USA and I am the founder, with my wife Maria, of Milano Straps, a family business that creates high quality straps that are not found everywhere. We are here to offer a unique experience for watch enthusiasts around the world.
I have been a passionate watchmaker since 1972. My passion for watches grew, so I started my first watchmaking business in 1984 by opening a vintage shop in Milan.
I had no choice but to devote myself to a family tradition, always guided by a love of watches, of course.
Here is the brief history of how Milano Straps was born
I grew up surrounded by watches. My dad was a watchmaker and since I was a kid, I'd wandered around the watch shop and organized watch straps by size and color. It all started since then when I discovered that watch bands come in a very limited variety of colors and styles. I was blocked by the rules. This made my job, even as a child, a bit boring. But it also triggered my creativity and made me want to create something that was different.
Thanks to our background of recognition of excellence in style and craftsmanship, we have developed a concept store.
Our mission is to #breaktherules and to bring watch straps to the center point of the wristwatch.
We work to make it more than just an accessory. We deliver it to be a key piece of personality for the wearer,
The Italian tradition of high quality craftsmanship is an essential aspect of what we do here at Milano Straps. We combine rich Italian culture and history with modern designs and fresh ideas to create exquisite accessories for your watches.
In a world where so much is getting boring, we bring back the thrill of discovery
unique pieces of artwork that complement the fine watches with the best Italian leather straps.
"Milano Straps is where passion, obsessive attention to detail and quality simply merge".
All straps are created from the love we put into our work, from the collaboration with some of the best Italian artisans and from the use of high quality Italian leathers. Each strap is carefully tanned, without the use of harmful chemicals and is ready to land perfectly on the wrist of a watch enthusiast.
Our collection of leather straps consists of vintage leather watch straps, embodying small pieces of history transformed into modern cutting edge Italian watch straps. Vintage suede straps complement luxury watches with their softness and suppleness, making them suitable for any special occasion.
Apple leather adapter bands come in various colors, styles and materials. They are handcrafted by Italian artisans with extreme attention to detail and only from the best Italian quality materials.
In addition to the Milan leather straps, you will find a range of Nato watch straps. These eye-catching straps are durable and ready for adventure. This collection is carefully crafted with sturdy NATO materials and stainless steel buckles for an attractive look and fit.
Travel with us to a place where watch straps become the center of the wristwatch. From luxury vintage straps to new and innovative designs and genuine Italian leather straps, anything can be possible for you watch lover.
