Hi strap lover, I'm happy to share these wonderful photos made by my good customer Oliver of his Maurice Lacroix PONTOS S EXTREME Chronograph in his newly completed strap. This strap is made from SuperMatte Teju Lizard in Carbon Black with accent stitching in green to match the accents on his watch. Featuring thick padding at the lugs and green calfskin leather lining, the strap really brings the piece together to become a united whole.

Oliver, thank you for your great photos and your is certainly our 'Watch of the Week'!

Great Customer Photos of PAM364 on Deep Atlantic Blue Ostrich Leg Strap




Hi strap lovers.  My very good customer Audie has been kind enough to send along some photos of his great looking PAM364 finally paired up with the strap that I made for his a couple of months ago.  His PAM364 had been on an extended European spa holiday in Switzerland taking some much needed 'me time' (read Panerai Service center) and has finally returned refreshed and ready for action.  I think it looks great on this strap (Read full details here), which features padding at the lugs, our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) upgrades, which provide an integrated fit between the lugs.  Also featured is our 'SuperExotica' upgrade here with soft and extremely durable Commando Grey SuperMatte Teju Lizard lining and superfine hand saddle stitching in Steel Grey French Linen.




The SuperMatte Ostrich, which we currently offer in Deep Atlantic Blue and in Carbon Black is exclusively tanned for us in Italy and is extremely well finished and offers a beautiful hand feel.  based on the overwhelming success of our SuperMatte Alligator and SuperMatte Teju Lizard, we had been looking for a supply for a couple of years.  We couldn't be happier with the results and are expecting to add more colors this year.

Audie's strap was made with keeper loops made from contrasting Carbon Black SuperMatte Ostrich and has been outfitted with a stunning buckle from one of the real masters in buckle making none other than Scott Namken of SN Metal Works (if you've not checked out Nicks website, you really should, his work is stunning).

Batches - Bespoke straps for PAM526


 'Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio PAM 526':






(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers.  One of the things that I like most about my work is my collaboration with clients to design unique and many times one of a kind straps for the watches that they love.  What makes this even more special is to build batches of straps for the same custom (and often for the same watch), giving my customers the ability to change between straps as the mood strikes them or to suit different occasions.  Here a great cases in point and for two very different watches.


The design process can take time to get all the details just right, combining different outer materials, thread colors, and linings in photos for client approval resulting in strap designs that are in perfect harmony with my client's vision and with the design of the watch:











My great client Gerald is fortunate to own what is certainly a grail watch for many of us the Panerai PAM526 Also known as the 'Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio PAM 526'.  This chronograph flyback specially designed for time regatta yacht racing is extremely sporty with Orange and blue center chronograph second hands set on a beautiful black Panera cutout sandwich dial.  This watch is massive and while milled from titanian to reduce weight, does benefit from our 'Fully Integrated Fit' (FIF) which offers integrated fit between the lugs, a pre-curved strap shape and notching to bring the width of the strap to the outside line of the lugs. the strap is then tapered back to the buckle width of choice.  In addition to looking very cool, this upgrade offers a much more secure fit on the wrist, cradling the wrist to achieve the perfect fit. 



I have made several straps for Gerald's PAM526 over the last three years, featuring some of my favorite exotic leathers and with Double Row stitching, interesting and durable exotic leather linings and Exotic wood and Mammoth Ivory buckles made my Ingo of FineWatchBuckles.  Absolutely No corners were cut with the design and building of these straps using the very finest materials and most expensive build options to create sets of straps that are entirely unique and second to none.
