Introducing Tobacco, Peanut and Stout Model 2 Premium Watch Straps
Words by Windup Watch Shop

The Model 2 Premium was designed to be the ideal strap. Just the right thickness, just the right taper, available in interesting colors and durable. They are made out of only the best leathers from Horween and Wickett & Craig tanneries, and are cut, sewn and painted in NYC. Since first released in 2016, they have become the mainstay of the Worn & Wound line of straps, as well as many a watch collection. Today, we’re excited to add three new and excellent colors to the collection - Tobacco, Peanut and Stout.


Tobacco is a unique medium brown built out of Horween’s Dublin leather. The top surface features veins of dark brown that randomly cut through and shift as the leather is stressed and worn. Because of the waxy surface, this leather also picks up scars and scratches overtime, giving it a gorgeous, worn in look after some wear. The Tobacco Model 2 Premium is available now in 18, 20 and 22mm.


Peanut suede from Horween is one of our favorite leathers, and we’re excited to finally bring it to the Model 2 Premium line. A gorgeous golden brown, Peanut suede features a heavy nap giving it a rustic, rugged appearance. Basically a perfect strap for the Fall and Winter, it looks great on tool, vintage and casual watches. The Peanut Model 2 Premium is available now in 18, 20 and 22mm.


You know how when you have a pint of Guinness or Left Hand stout, it looks black, but if you look at the edge of the liquid wear it pulls up against the glass, warmer tones are revealed? Yeah, we named this strap after that, as it’s the darkest brown we’ve ever seen. A charming color, it’s warmer and more subtle than black, and features a pronounced grain from tumbling, adding depth and texture. The Stout Model 2 Premium is available now in 18, 20 and 22mm.
