Z-Matten is handmade from vintage Swedish ammo pouches and is one of the best aging custom watch straps I've ever made. Z-Matten is made with a comfortable backing leather, making the strap quite comfortable on the wrist. This is a firm strap with just a little bit of sheen to it. It breaks in wonderfully and after some regular wear develops a gorgeous patina. Like any genuine ammo-leather strap every Z-Matten is unique and will make your Panerai or any other watch a unique, one-of-a-kind item.

The Z-Matten shown in the pictures above is a representation of Z-Mattens, but not an example of the exact strap you will receive. Every Z-Matten will be 100% unique and have it's own color, patina and style. If you prefer a lighter or darker Z-Matten you can let me know by emailing me after ordering and telling me your preference.

Color: Medium ammo that patinas very nicely
Texture: Smooth, with occasional light texture
Thickness: 4mm (Thicknesses are approximate)
Stiffness: Firm but pliable
