Hi strap lovers, I've been a really busy strap maker and have a lot of really Dangerous9straps to share with you from the past couple of weeks, but first up. I wanted to share a strap that I build to Mark from the US for his Bell & Ross BR01 Orange Limited Edition watch. This strap is just awesome and was a lot of fun to build. Made form Emergency Orange Stingray and incorporating the eye portion of the skin and lined with Australian Kangaroo, I also polished as per Mark's preference to give it that great mottled look that is so appealing about polished stingray. polishing Stingray skin is a bit of a tricky affair don't sand enough and you don't get the great look that you want, but take too much and the piece is ruined! And to the fact that this is a one of a kind skin and if I ruin it, there is no getting any more (I do have enough of this skin to make many more straps, but not with the "eye"), it makes for nail biting work. Luckily, Mark was happy with the final strap and so am I. He was kind enough to send along some great photos of his strap nicely mounted to his beautiful BR01-94 Orange Ti Limited Edition. Looks great Mark, Thanks for the effort of sending me these photos!
