Hi strap lovers. We here at Dangerous9straps love building vintage Swiss Ammo straps for all kinds of watches, not just for Panerai. It seems as though just about any man's watch with some heft looks great paired with the vintage leather and if combined with the right stitch color, can be a stunning combo. Case in point is this 1945 Swiss Ammo strap build for my good customer Per from Stockholm. His is a great looking yellow Breitling Avenger Seawolf paired with the great 1945 vintage Swiss Ammo strap and has been hand saddle stitched using our soft yellow linen, which I think is a really great match for the yellow dial of the Seawolf and really makes his watch 'POP'. We could have used black linen, which would have looked good as well, but Per went with the bold choice and it's really paid off the an eye catching combo. Notched at the lugs, the strap is 24mm overall, which gives his Seawolf a much beefier look that a standard, straight 22mm wide strap. I think this combo is worth opening a bottle of the good stuff to celebrate. Thanks Per for sending along these great photos!! Your's is our latest 'Watch of the Week'.
