How a high-quality leather hide becomes a masterpiece of craftsmanship

The satisfaction of our customers is the guiding principle of everything we do.

Bavarian craftsmanship

With this in mind, Fluco has been manufacturing fine watch straps 100% in Germany since 1952. Ulrich Fleischmann is the third generation of his family to run the manufactory that his grandfather, a fine bag maker, founded almost 70 years ago in Furth im Wald.

Deeply rooted in the Bavarian Forest, where values such as consistency and appreciation are not just empty words, the family business takes the term “honorable craftsmanship” literally – there is no room for pretense here. Fluco offers luxury that is not dictated by price.

The highest standards of quality begin with the transparent selection of leather. For example, the Alran tannery from France, the Haas tannery from France and the Perlinger tannery, also from Furth im Wald, are among the family company’s in-house suppliers. When it comes to Cordovan products, Fluco takes the leap across the pond: the fine hides come from the Horween tannery in Chicago, an established name and seal of quality.

Carefully selected leather and numerous colors and embossings, coupled with a high standard of quality, turn the watch straps into pieces of jewelry that underline the individuality of their owner.

Manufacture in the Fluco factory

100% of our ribbons are made in our factory in Furth im Wald. Over the decades, we have continuously improved and perfected the production of watch straps. The current hall was built in 1990 and still stands for a place where quality is created.

In almost 60 work steps, small masterpieces are created in our manufactory under the skilled hands of our qualified and experienced employees. To get a small insight into the elaborate production process, we recommend watching our video about the production of our Instrmnt ribbons.

Species protection

Watch straps made of reptile leather and the trade in them are subject to special laws that have been developed in the interests of species protection in accordance with the Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. This stipulates that watch straps made of reptile leather must be legal to purchase.

All reptile watch straps are marked with an IRV flag (species protection). In accordance with the provisions of the Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, this guarantees that the leather is a species-appropriate article.
