SHELL CORDOVAN, JUST THE RIGHT THING FOR CONNOISSEURS
The Winterhude and Eppendorf models are distinguished by their Shell Cordovan leather, which is one of the finest leathers in the world. It is made from a very special piece of skin from the back of a horse. Only the leather from this piece may bear the name Shell Cordovan. Everything else is simple horse leather.
Shell Cordovan leather is extremely durable and is often used for leather shoes. Due to its high fat content this leather is also very water-repellent. If the temperature changes significantly - for example, when you take your Cessna out for a spin or enjoy the view at Mont Blanc - you may notice a whitish coating on the strap. This coating comes from escaping fat. You can simply polish it away with a soft cloth.
It shows you that you are wearing a very special bracelet made of very special leather.
