Art of work

Good is not good enough

Good is not good enough

With this philosophy Fluco has been producing fine watch straps since 1952. Ulrich Fleischmann, the third generation of the family, now runs the company that his grandfather, a Portefeuiller, founded almost 70 years ago in Furth im Wald. When he was a young boy, he spent every free minute in the leather workshop, fascinated by the craftsmanship of his grandfather, under whose hands small leather works of art were created. It wasn’t long before Ulrich put his own hands to work and, at the age of not even 10 years, proudly wore his first self-manufactured watch bracelet. The passion for fine craftsmanship never left him, he completed his apprenticeship in the in-house manufactory, learned everything worth knowing about the texture of fine leather and took over the family business at the age of only 21 years after his father’s death in 1990.

Puristic Design

Driven by his passion for this craft, he continued the business in the same spirit as his grandfather.Deeply rooted in the Bavarian Forest, where valuessuch asconstancy and appreciation are not just empty words, the family business takes the term ” respectable craft ” literally -beautiful appearance has no place here. Fluco offers luxury that is not dictated by price.The high demand for quality begins with the selection of the leather. Finest leathers from renowned tanneries mainly in France, Italy, Spain and Germany. For example, the Perlinger leather factory, world-famous for its first-class handcrafted calfskins and also based in Furth im Wald, is one of the family business’s in-house suppliers.

One watch, unlimited opportunities

Fluco takes the opportunity to jump across the ocean when it comes to horse leather: the fine hides come from the Horween tannery in Chicago, a constant and seal of quality.In almost 60 work steps, Fluco creates small masterpiecesunder the skilled hands of its qualified and experienced employees: watch straps that enhance favourite watches, give them the appropriate setting and also emphasise the value of fine timepieces.Carefully selected leathers, as well as numerous coloursand embossings, combined with a high standard of quality, make the watch straps into pieces of jewellery that underline the individuality of their owner.

Species protection

For watch straps made of reptile leather and the trade in them, special laws apply that have been developed in the interests of species protection in accordance with the Washington Convention on the Protection of Species, which is valid worldwide. In this it is mandatory to prove that watch straps made of reptile leather have been legally acquired. All reptile watch straps are marked with an IRV flag (species protection). According to the provisions of the Washington Convention on the Protection of Species, this guarantees that the leather is an article that is flawless in terms of species protection law

Top quality, perfect service and delivery. I had to send one back because I didn't like the color of the strap. But it was absolutely no problem for Fluco. If bracelets then here!

I ordered a cordovan leather watch strap. The quality of the bracelet is exceptional and the exquisite craftsmanship is evident. It's great that something like this still exists!

Franziska Greinke

 I recently ordered a watchcase for my 2 watches here and I have to say that I am more than satisfied. You won't get any other product of this quality for this price. Fluco should still work a little on its marketing, but the products are already great.
