(Click on any photo to enlarge)
 Hi strap lovers. I've got a customer that's got this Dangerous9strap made from our Premium Swiss Hides Ebony Alligator for a Breguet Marine big date available for sale. It's dimensioned at 130/85 in length and 22/18 in width, and is set up to work the the Breguet OEM deployment clasp. Featuring thick padding at the lugs, this strap is lined with our black grain Kangaroo for comfort and durability and finely hand saddle stitched with our finest french linen thread.  This strap is a real beauty. Unfortunately, my customer's is the smaller version Breguet Marine that takes a 20mm wide strap, so this one is for sale unused and ready for immediate delivery. Anyone who's interested, Contact me right away for an awesome deal on a handmade Alligator strap.

Skull Rivet Available for your Dangerous9strap!

Hi strap lovers, we have made a number of straps with skull rivets over the past year or two and have collected 3 different designs at our customer's request, which you can order for your Dangerous9strap.  Up to now we have only used these rivet in ammo straps, which makes sense, in that they tend to go very well with the rustic design of this style strap.  However, we can add these rivets as an accent to straps made from just about any material (with the exception of  Hornback Alligator, Stingray and straps that feature padding at the lugs) and think these could look really cool with any of our Exotic skin straps as well.  Also, while these example straps all feature accent stitching, there is no reason that these couldn't have made with full saddle stitching as well.

If you have an idea for a strap featuring this fun and unique hardware, please let me know, I would be happy to work out a design with you.

Silver finish Skull & Cross Bones 12mmx12mm

Ian's Light Tan 1960's Swiss Ammo with TCLS for MKII

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Ian was kind enough to ship me his MKII Nassau to have me build this custom strap made from 1960's Swiss Ammo leather (No Stampings Please). He requested our lightest shade of tan and black stitching, which I think looks great on his watch. He also requested our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) for a perfect integrated fit at the lugs, which I think I achieved for him in spades. Thanks again Ian and thank you for giving me the chance to check out your great MKII in person. My Wife and I both agree that the MKII Nassau case with it's long tapered lugs is much more elegant that the modern Rolex Sub case. If you would like to check out all the MKII offerings on their website, you won't regret it: MKII Watches.

IWC Big Pilot on Jurassic Chocolate African Goat from our Safari Collection

Hi strap lovers, Here are some photos of my friend's IWC Big Pilot on a Jurassic Chocolate African Goat from our Safari Collection.  I Really like these Big Pilot watches on a leather strap with somt heavy texture and this African Goat leather from our bespoke traditional British tanner Tusting & Burnett (Estb. 1938) Ltd. really fits the bill.  With it's deep grain texture and wonderful chocolate color it's a perfect pairing with IWC BP's classic Military look.  This strap features flat squared profile IWC style padding at the lugs (as opposed to our typical high domed rounded padding) tapering from 22 to 20mm at the buckle and has super fine hand saddle stitching using fine French Fil Lin Cable Au Chinois linen thread, which is the world's best.  This strap has been lined with our Special calf skin lining in Olive Drab, which is both in keeping with the military spirit of the watch and also super soft on the wrist.  Altogether, I think this strap is a really great match for the IWC Big Pilot and will be our 'Watch of the Week'!

Wen's customized Rolex SDDS on SuperMatte Alligator

Hi strap lovers, I'm happy to share these photos I received from my great customer Wen of is customized Rolex SDDS.  I've had these photos for a while now and I can't believe I've somehow never posted the.  Wen's strap featuring our Fully integrated fitment and SuperExotica upgrade with super fine hand saddle stitching in french red linen and exotic Red Eel skin lining. I think it's about perfect with Wen's modified Rolex SDDS with red second hand and date wheel. The buckle wast brilliantly done by SNMetalworks in Colorado.

Our Fully Integrated Fit (FIF) upgrade, which includes our 'Thick Curved Lug System' ('TCLS) for an integrated fit between the lugs as well as notching to bring the width of the strap to the outside line of the lugs and is then tapered back to 24mm or 22mm wide at the buckle. This design was inspired by the Rubber-B straps for Rolex SDDS and is extremely challenging to accomplish in leather. Of course, our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) upgrade can be ordered separately if you don't want the notching at the lugs and the extra wide strap.
