Brian's Awesome Grand Seiko in SuperMatte Blue Teju Lizard with Integrated Fit




Hi strap lovers, I am happy to share some wonderful photos recently provided by my good customer Brian of his awesome Grand Seiko "Snowflake" SBGA011. This watch is a real beauty with it's famous White textured Dial reminiscent of fresh falling snow, which really must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Brian chose our blue SuperMatte Teju Lizard with padding at the lugs and our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS), which provides and integrated fit between the lugs. I think this is a great choice for watches that have a curved case between the lugs and would otherwise have a large gap between a strap end strap and the curved watch case. I also thin the SuperMatte Teju matches well with the blued steel hands and of course the cream white French linen thread ties the strap together with its beautiful white dial. This strap has been lining with richly colored Mustang Saddle Kidskin, which I think looks really great here. Overall, I don't think one could design a more fitting combination for this watch.

A Word About Ordering Straps with our 'Thick Curved Lug System' upgrade:
Of course many of the more common brands such as many models from Panerai, Rolex, and Omega which the TCLS is often ordered for, I have these necessary information. However, if yours is a less common model watch and I won't have the benefit of having your watch in hand (this is most often the case) I should still be able to build your strap with our custom 'Thick Curved Lug System' and achieve a very nice integrated fit if provided detailed measurements out lined below. These are best taken if possible with a digital Caliper (this is the most accurate method):

​A = Distance between the center of the spring bar to where the bracelet meets the watch case between the lugs
B = ​Distance between the spring bar lug hole and the top corner where the lug joins the watch case.
C = The diameter of the watch case between the lugs.




Back to the great photos:

SuperMatte Teju Lizard

(SuperMatte: Red, Walnut and Black)

SuperMatte: Orange and Grey

SuperMatte Blue
(Please click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers, One of our most popular exotics leathers we offer over the last couple of years is Teju Lizard, which we offer in both satin and Supermatte finish. The SuperMatte Teju Lizard is a Dangerous9straps exclusive material. Based upon the success our our SuperMatte Carbon American Alligator, we worked in collaboration with our Italian tannery to develop this finish for Teju Lizard. We Currently offer SuperMatte Teju in Black, Red, Blue, Commando Grey, Orange and Walnut Brown and expect to be adding additional colors as demand is expressed - so please, if you would like for use to offer a color that we don't have, please let me know and I will certainly take your request under advisement. 

These colors have been very popular as both outer layers for straps and as lining leathers as well.  Due to their relative softness and moisture tolerance, they make ideal and extremely durable lining leathers are look very snazzy as well.

Here are some various straps with SuperMatte Teju Linings:








We are extremely pleased with the outcome. The finish a very durable and super soft to the touch. Additionally, many of our Teju colors such as Racing Tan, Tobacco, Walnut and Steel Blue are bespoke tanned by our Italian tannery partner and are exclusive to Dangerous9straps. If you would like to view a complete slideshow of all our Teju Lizard colors we have in current stock, please follow this link: Teju Lizard by Dangerous9straps.
