RIOS1931 is a family business founded in 1931 and currently in its third generation that still maintains the same philosophy of their founder, Oswald Riemer - "to preserve skilled craftsmanship while focusing on fashion and meeting the technical requirements of the day."
The craftspeople at RIOS1931 dedicate a great deal of time to making each watch strap. The leather is elaborately processed by hand in the manner of traditional leather craftsmanship. Gentle procedures guarantee you natural, environmentally friendly, leather products- each one representing a unique masterpiece.
EACH STRAP IS A PIECE OF THE FINEST CRAFTSMANSHIP
Each RIOS1931 watch band is given an astounding amount of time and attention throughout the production process. In fact, depending on the model, each watch band will undergo a production process of fifty (50) to one-hundred and seventy two (172) production steps!
In contrast to machine sewing, the hand-stitched or Saddler's Seam uses only a single thread, which is drawn manually from one side to the other with two needles alternately. This creates a particularly even stitch pattern. It takes approximately 40 minutes to produce such a seam, which gives a watch strap a longer service life compared to machine stitching. An exact hand seam requires all the skill of a master leather artisan and thus represents a piece of the finest craftsmanship.
