Our local customer was kind enough to leave his wife's 1970's vintage Patek Calatrava with us to fit the new strap. She wanted something a bit more relaxed from the black Crocodile strap that was on the watch, so we came up with something new. It's a glossy finish Cognac Ostrich Leg skin with Beige French linen hand saddle stitching and Eel skin lining. This Vintage Patek is THIN at about 5mm, so the strap had to be very thin as well, so to give it some strength and durability, we used about a 1mm mid-layer of vegetable tanned Kangaroo leather. I think it's a pretty great combo.
