VC strap marking

My VC leather strap has the number 081178 stamped on the back side near the watch, on both halves of the strap. What does that number signify? And on the side with the punched holes, also on the back side, there is the phrase "[something I can't decipher, about 5 letters long] main". What does that mean? Thanks for demystifying this!
the numbers are reference numbers so they know which strap goes on

which watch. The wording is "cousu main" which in French means "hand stitched"
Thanks! [nt]

Best of all, it's as good as it gets, including ABP. Miki
