Who is Jacek Kozubek?
If you’re a collector of vintage watches, then you would have undoubtedly heard of Jacek, you may have bought a watch from him. He is everything a watch dealer should be and over the last 15 years he’s built a stellar reputation as one of the best. He has a soft spot for early 60’s submariners and some of the most important pieces from that era have passed through his hands. His ethos that “collecting is a very personal thing and shouldn’t be about what other people are wearing”, runs though his life. His relaxed and happy go lucky nature makes him an absolute pleasure to deal with and to spend time with. A true collector at heart, you’ll find his San Francisco home adorned with modern art and 70’s furniture.
Our 5th L’Atelier project represents Jacek’s brand colours for his company Tropical Watch LLC. We took one of our best selling leathers, Grained Hunter Green and gave it the Tropical Watch treatment, with a fabulous sunburst yellow lining and accents and as Jacek so perfectly put it, “the strap.. is a reminder of not taking yourself seriously”.
Our Grained Calf Skin is produced in France. It’s an exceptional leather that will remain resilient and hold it’s form over normal usage. The leather deals well with scratches and is also easy to care for and can be cleaned with a simple wipe using a damp cloth.

A little care can go a long way in not only protecting your strap but also extending it’s life. The first and most important rule is to make sure that you avoid water at all costs. Water is the mortal enemy of leather and will stain, discolour and weaken the fibres. So no showering, swimming or exercising while wearing your strap.
Like a good pair of shoes, if you get the chance to rotate your straps then this will allow you to enjoy them a little longer.
When you’re not wearing your strap, then we suggest storing it in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight and excessive heat.
