About Us

DIAMETRIS

Founded in Montreal in 2014, Diametris is constantly looking for balance, technique and comfort.
From design to completion, our enduring handcrafted designs incorporate modern details and elevates watches from all eras.

 
 

KNOW HOW

DESIGN

Whether standard models or customized models, the design allows us to determine the style, sizes and options of the strap. The preparation consists in carefully selecting the leathers and materials to be further processed and skived using a machine. Subsequently, the assembly of the strap consists of placing and gluing each part prepared with precision.

PRODUCTION

The cut is made by hand or by tool depending on the model of strap chosen. Secondly, the strap is burnished, which consists of manually highlighting the edge of the strap with a burnishing iron to allow the strap to solidify and add a harmonious visual element. We then proceed to wax edge finish. It is applied and sanded manually several times over until smoothness. This allows the strap to have better resistance over time.
 

SEWING & HOT STAMPING

The sewing of our straps is mainly machine made, but it is possible to offer the option of traditionally hand sewing on request. We use hot stamping to identify straps because we believe this traditional method is the most elegant on leather.
 

PACKAGING

Once our straps have successfully passed the verification stage, they are carefully packaged with a box designed and manufactured in Quebec with recycled materials by Plumepak.
 


OUR LEATHERS

Our selection process for leathers and materials is simple: only full-grain leathers or suede are used to make our straps.
We select and import our leathers from France, Italy and the United States.
