Early production Dangerous9straps

Hi strap lovers.  Like most production business, we have some old stock and early production items hanging around.  in our case these straps tend to be straps that I build early in my strap making career that or some prototypes or items that have been returned for whatever reason or were never sold and are in a small pile taking up space.  These straps are (luckily very few in number) for sale and upon request, I can provide a link to a slideshow where you can take a look.  One of those straps is featured here.  These photos sent by my good customer Dave of his great looking Paul Smith Automatic paired with a vegetable leather strap in Marine Cordovan with Ecru linen stitching.  It's a pretty rustic strap when compared with straps I'm making today, this strap was from 2010 and was probably among the first 50 straps I ever made.  But a 4mm + thickness of vegetable tanned leather and stitched with monster 7 ply waxed Irish linen thread, it will last for ever and will look pretty good while doing it.  Thanks Dave for the great photos!

Ricardo's Oris Small Seconds Diver on Grey-Moss Nubuck Shark skin

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers.  Here are some photos I took of a recently completed strap for my good customer Richardo from right here in Germany.  He was kind enough to send me his beautiful Oris small seconds Diver for fitment. I think it turned out about perfect. This strap features custom dyed French milled linen and Eel skin lining to match the light Orange Dial indices.  The super soft Nubuck Shark skin has been heavily reinforced at the lugs to assure a perfect fit and prevent stretch over time. I think this makes for a stunning combo.

Ostrich Leg skin Rally strap for Blancpain 'Tribute to Fifty Fathoms'

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers, Here is a really unique strap for a very unique watch - the limited edition Blancpain 'Tribute to Fifty Fathoms.  Owned by my very good customer Roger, that watch features a historic 'No Radiation' symbol from the days when the watch industry was transitioning away from luminate material that was radioactive.  This was important enough a feature of the watch to warrant the addition of  this symbol as an assurance of it's safety. This strap features rally holes as per Roger's request and our 'SuperExotica' upgrade with super fine hand saddle stitching using our finest black French Fil Au Chinois Lin Cable Thread and custom dyed Exotic Eel skin lining to match the orange of the 'No Radiation' symbol.  I think this strap is going to be look incredible paired with Roger's very special Blanpain and he has promised to send some photos it his watch and new strap very soon.
