Hi strap lovers. I'm never satisfied with just making great custom straps for my customers. I firmly believe that in order to offer true luxury watch straps for my customers, I must continuously strive to improve my products and my service. To that end, I've been looking far and wide for a new lining leather for my exotic skin straps. These were the imperatives of my search: 1. This new lining leather must be strong and super flexible. 2. It must be incredibly , luxuriously soft. 3. It must be able to cope well with a moisture rich environment of a watch strap. 4. It needed to be between .6 to .8mms in thickness, so it can be easily incorporated into dressier straps and deployment clasps.
My searching has finally paid off. There is a certain tannery in France that is tanning locally raised lamb skin that is incredibly soft - ridiculously soft. In fact, I think it's perhaps the softest leather of any kind I have ever come across. It's not just the feel of this leather that is a wonder, but its strength as well. It's suppleness and pliability are in fact its great strengths. Where calf leather splits and can tare, lamb skin stretches. The color is a sumptuous tan with a velvety feel that must be experienced to be believed. Order your Dangerous9 exotic skin strap with the new buttery soft Lambskin lining upgrade today, and treat yourself to the very best feeling strap on earth.

Hi strap lovers, here's a strap that my good customer Jason from Oklahoma has been waiting for months for while the shipping box I send from California before my move to Deutschland was bounced back and forth across the Atlantic. This Orange Ostrich leg was a one of a kind deal, and none of my other suppliers could get me a replacement in this color so I waited...and waited. Jason waited too and for that - a tip of my hat. Just when I had given up hope of ever seeing these Ostrich hides again. they appeared and so I got to work. Here is the result. This Emergency Orange Ostrich is so bright it make really oranges seem green with envy. Seriously, cars will swerve around you in the street if you're wearing this Dangerous9strap. Not for the faint of heart, but I love it!!

Hi strap lovers, Here is the first strap Dangerous9strap made from Pythom for my great customer, Doug's PAM 183. The color on this skin is incredible running from light grey to cream white and deep chocolate brown. This strap is stitched with Chocolate brown linen, but other great colors would be natrual, Walnut brown, cream white and even grey. I've got a very limited supply of Python in stock, so if you're interested in having a fully custom Python skin strap made, let me know right away. Cheers!

Hi strap lovers. Here is one that I'm very excited about - my great customer Doug's new Nubuck Shark in Grey Moss. This is a very limited edition shark leather that I recently acquired from one of my suppliers and is exclusive to Dangerous9straps and once it's gone, It'll be gone for ever so it you're interested in having a strap made, using this amazing skin, you should contact me right away. The color of the skin is a soft grey/brown Nubuck that in some light looks like Moss Green and since it's Nubuck, is sumptuously soft and supple and yet I know from my experience with shark, will be as tough as nails and wear like Iron. Doug's choice of Butterscotch linen is a perfect contrast, but since this skin has so much complexity of color making subtle color shift depending on the direction of the light, it would look great also with Cream white, Natural, Slate Grey, Charcoal, Walnut and even black linen stitching. Can you tell that I love this skin? Doug's strap was made for his PAM 184, and is 27mms at the lug gently tapering to 24mm at the buckle. If you've got a watch that you think would look good paired with this beautiful Dangerous9strap exclusive Nubuck Shark, contact me today. Cheers!
