Ian's stunning Breitling MontBrillant Navitimer on Vintage Cognac Alligator

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers.  I'm very excited to share some wonderful photos from my good customer Ian of his tasty Breitling Montbrillant Navitimer on his newly arrived Vintage Cognac Alligator strap.  This Vintage Cognac is from our premium France Croco Alligator Collection.  We are lucky enough to be able to make personal visits to the France Croco Warehouse in Milan a couple of times per year in order to hand pick the Alligator hides we'll be offering.  Never knowing what we are going to find, we nearly always over spend because invariably, we find some incredible and often one-of-a kind hides that we simply can't pass up!  The Vintage Cognac was on such offering.  This hide just exudes old school masculine class (think paneled walls, leather club chairs, cigar smoke and a good whisky or think vintage sports cars and driving gloves).  It's hard to believe that after all these years in the business that an Alligator hide can conjure up so many associations, but there you are. Needless to say, I had to have it!

In any case these beautiful photos from Ian have captured his watch and new strap to best advantage and highlighted the beauty of both. The Vintage Cognac Alligator has a very subtle grey Antiquing at the edge of the scales that matches well with the bronze dial of the Breitling.

This strap features high domed padding at the lugs and our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) to give the strap an integrated fit between the lugs.

  Thanks to Ian for these lovely photos, yours is most certainly our new 'Watch of the Week'!!

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers, here are some great photos from my good customer Daniel's Omega Planet Ocean Co-Axle Chronograph on his newly arrived Caramel Brulée Alligator strap. Caramel Brulée is from our ultra premium France Croco Alligator Collection. France Croco is a Normandy based Alligator and Crocodile tannery whose hides are among the best available and was recently acquired by Kering (formerly PPR) a holding company that owns such brands as Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQeen, Sergio Rossi, and Girard-Perregaux. We are proud to have France Croco as a supply partner enabling us to offer the finest Alligator skin available. The colors and overall quality of the France Croco skins are the best I've yet seen.

This strap features Padding at the lugs and our 'Thick Curved Lug System', which gives this strap an integrated fit between the lugs. Also worthy of note on this strap is our 'SuperExotica' upgrade featuring exotica and highly moisture resistant red Sharkskin lining and and super fine hand saddle stitching in Orange French linen thread. All together this makes for a truly eye catching combinations for a truly eye catching watch. Thanks Daniel for providing the wonderful photos, yours is most certainly our 'Watch of the Week'!!

SuperMatte Alligator with Fully Integrated Fit for Rolex Submariner is an instant classic

Hi strap lovers.  I am happy to share several photos of a recently completed strap for a vintage Rolex Submariner modeled here on a modern Rolex Submariner Ref. No. 114060.  This strap features padding at the lugs and our exclusive 'Fully Integrated Fit' (FIF) option which not only offers and integrated fit between the lugs but also is notched bringing the width of the strap to the outside line of the lugs.  This gives the strap a much beefier look than a standard straight strap.  The strap then tapers back to 22mm at the buckle.  Super fine hand saddle stitched with the subtlest of contrasting Charcoal linen thread, and lined with matching Charcoal kidskin.  This strap has been fitted with our custom 22mm 'D9', screw-in, Pre-V buckle.  This strap will  look excellent on any Rolex Submariner and is (I think) and instant classic.
