Josh's Swiss Ammo for BR01

(click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers. Here is a really cool strap that I made recently for Josh from the US. He'd wanted a 1940's Swiss Ammo strap and also incidentally has 9+ inch wrists. This was a bit of a math problem as these straps are only about 180mms wide and based on the limitations of the build by virtue of the location of the stampings I really had a very small area in which to punch the holes for the tang buckle. The solution? I made the short side about 100mm long! I also delayed the taper of the strap by about 5mms on each side to give the strap the same proportions that we mortals of normal wrist size enjoy about the BR01/03 strap design. Josh has also chosen to have his strap build with my recently arrived Vintage style, flat, custom "D9" logo sewn-in buckle, which was really designed with swiss ammo straps firmly in mind. The matte PVD finish is just about a perfect match for the black BR01 watch case and suits the proportions of his strap perfectly. Josh, Thanks for sending along the great photos! Your BR01 my Dangerous9 "Watch of the Week"
