Code 1159 Strap

May 16, 2023,15:06 PM

I was seeking more details about the “new” AP Code 1159 straps as I really like them (to add on other watches).
I believe those are actually made of rubber that emulates the structure of a canvas / cordura strap? And the lining is made in soft leather.
Would be thankful for an owner to confirm as it’s difficult to find a definite answer online (at least for me!).
PS: and I would assume JRousseau would make the straps?
Thanks and best! Patrick

yet upper material is different (sailcloth vs rubber). I am always amazed how a strap can change a watch anyway!

I see

Now I know what you mean, I believe I’ve seen a strap like that by Patek where the top part looks like sail cloth while it feels like rubber and the inside lining is black rubber

rubber material

Hard to tell for sure but your description seems to fit. It is a rubberized weave pattern with hand-stitched calf underside ("cousu main"). ...
