More than an accessory
Vintage design remains one of the biggest trends in watchbands, reports G.P.F.’s General Manager Vittoria Failli. And vintage styling is precisely what to find at G.P.F. because this company offers an extensive selection of vintage wristbands and many other products. G.P.F. specialises in exotic leathers, such as alligator or python skin. All products are certified by CITES, an international agreement among governments to ensure that international trade in species of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.
“A wristband is more than an accessory. It is an essential part that adds personality to every watch,” Failli says. She therefore places great importance on the fact that all of G.P.F.’s products can be individually designed to satisfy each customer’s choice of colour or leather, for example. All straps are manufactured by hand, using traditional, natural methods. This Italian company, which has been in business for 30 years, supervises every single phase of each individual item – from the design and technical drawings to the creation of the exclusive and unique straps.
