Hi strap lovers, here is on of the latest custom straps from Dangerous9straps . This strap as you can see is very customized to fit the watch case of the Panerai 193 in order to look like an integrated strap. Eric contacted me from Indonesia indicating that he wanted to have a vintage black strap that looks with notches at the lugs and that he wanted to have the strap look like it was one piece with the watch case. As luck would have it, I happen to have access to a PAM194, which shares the same or very similar case and lug profile with the PAM193, so I was able to use it as a fitment model. This strap features not only my custom thick curved lug upgrade, which is designed to minimize the gap that would typically exist between a straight end strap and the watch case, but also notching at the lugs to give this strap and extremely beefy look on the watch, being 35mm wide to match the total width of the lug. The strap then gently tapers to 24mm at the buckle. This strap like all Dangerous9straps is build from natural cream colored vegetable tanned leather then dyed to the custom color requested by the customer. In this case Eric wanted a very distressed/vintage black color. I think the color of the leather looks great with the titanium color of the PAM194 watch case and also looks great with the vintage character of the rustic natural heather colored waxed linen thread. I'm really pleased with how this strap turned out and my good customer Eric is very please as well. I can't wait to see photos of this strap mounted to his awesome PAM193.
