Newly Arrived - Huge Shipment of France Croco Alligator Hides

Stain Lucia in Larger Scales)

Vintage Cognac


Hi strap lovers.  I'm very excited to announce the arrival of one of the largest shipments yet of Alligator hides from our ultra premium Alligator supplier France Croco.  We personally selected these hides from France Croco's Milan Warehouse on our last trip to Italy at the end of May and am very to present them here.  Many of these hides of one of a kind skins (samples and prototypes) so if you see one that you'd like us to use for your custom strap, don't hesitate, because once they are sold out it is very unlikely that we'll be getting these again:

Saint Lucia is a color we already offer, but this skin is larger - perfect for larger straps such as Panerai or Bell & Ross watches:

Vintage Cognac, is a color we already offer, but I believe this is the last of this color in the France Croco warehouse:

Antique Chestnut: This is a total one off color (tons of character here) that I couldn't pass up on it's a larger hide, which will be perfect for larger straps such as for Panerai and Bell & Ross

Acid Bleu:  Is a very unqiue blue with heavy antiqued finish

Caramel Brûlée:  This is a stunning color and finish - great for those who like the Vintage Cognac and Caramel d'Ore, but want a more Antiqued finish:

Bamboo: This is a beautiful light tan color with loads of character -

Nubuck Espresso: This is a stunning very Dark brown with a beautiful Sueded/Nubuck finish

Opalescent White in two finishes: One that is a more pure White Opalescent with a more matte finish and one that is a slightly more Ivory white with a bit of a glossy finish:  

 Tourbe Brune:  This is our all time favorite dark brown with just a hint of grey and one we've been offering for a while and perhaps our most popular color:

Audemars Piguet Diver on Vintage Swiss Army Rucksack Canvas and leather strap

Hi strap lovers.  This strap is one I've completed a few months ago destined to be fitted to a customer's Audemars Piguet ROOS Safari.  Sadly I didn't happen to have that beautiful model watch available, but before I shipped the strap took the opportunity to model it on an Audemars Piguet Diver.  I think the strap looks pretty great, however, if I were to build this model strap for a Diver, I would recommended instead that the leather be black instead of the vintage brown leather shown here.  Otherwise, I think it looks spectacular.  These Vintage Swiss Army Rucksack straps require quite a bit of work and attention to detail (the keep alone can take over an hour of work to complete) But I think the uniqueness of the design and the striking results are well worthy of the effort.

Newly Arrived - SuperMatte Teju Lizard in New Colors!!

Hi strap lovers, I am very happy to announce the arrival of a new batch of SuperMatte Teju Lizard in the Standard Carbon black finish as well as Red and Walnut.  These leathers have a very cool and modern feel and make the perfect straps for sport chronographs military and modern dive watches where a when combined with a contrasting stitch make for a very sporty strap.

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 are extremely pleased with the outcome. The finish a very durable and super soft to the touch. Additionally being bespoke tanned by our Italian tannery partner, are exclusive to Dangerous9straps.

This will make wonderful straps as are extremely soft as well and so will make for wonderful strap linings to compliment your strap with another exotic leather as well.  My favorite aspect of using these leathers for lining materials is that not only are they very soft on the wrist but the SuperMatte is very similar to a matte rubberized finish and his therefore essentially waterproof.  Also the small scale pattern in addition to looking very cool as a lining,  promotes air circulation between the strap an the wrist for better comfort.  This surface treatment is also extremely easy to maintain with just a swipe of the clean, wet cloth or paper towel, it looks like new again.

(SuperMatte Carbon lining)

In addition to the Carbon Black, Red and Walnut you seed here, I am looking forward to ordering additional colors in the coming months as well: Steel Blue, Orange and Yellow, and perhaps Olive Drab.  The possibilities are nearly endless..
