Hi strap lovers, I'm happy to share a few photos of my good customer Nick of his great looking Breitling Cosmonaute with his newly arrived 1936 Swiss Ammo strap. These straps are traditionally paired with Panerai watches, but we at Dangerous9straps believe these vintage leather straps also look stunning on many other watches as well. And as you can see Nick Breitling Cosmonaute is among them. Thanks Nick for these photos, yours is definitely our 'Watch of the Week'.

Hi strap lover, we just received a new shipment of skins from our Premium Alligator supplier France Croco. These skins were hand chosen by me and Andrea on our last buying trip to France Croco's Milan Warehouse and very special indeed and in some cases are one of a kind, so for instance on the Etain Gris and Barbados and Martinique Bleu are one of a kind skin and probably won't have the possibility of restocking so it you're interested in having a strap made from these, don't wait long to make your request.
More on France Croco:
France Croco is a Normandy based Alligator and Crocodile tannery who's hides are among the best available and was recently acquired by Kering (formerly PPR) a holding company that owns such brands as Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQeen, Sergio Rossi, and Girard-Perregaux. We are proud to have France Croco as a supply partner enabling us to offer the finest Alligator skin available. The colors and overall quality of the France Croco skins are the best I've yet seen.

'Etain Gris' or Pewter Grey is a beautifully finished medium grey with a hand rubbed antiqued finish that results in this unique and one of a kind color. As with a number of our current offerings from France Croco, this finish is hand applied by highly experienced master craftsman at their tannery in Normandy, France.
Martinique Bleu is quite simply one of the most beautiful Alligator skins Andrea and I have ever seen. This hide is a unique hand applied finish that has been done in a multi-stage process and in a one of a kin color. Featuring a stunning turquoise blue center scale section that has been hand rubbed with a earth tan antique stain between the scales, it's an absolutely stunning example of the tanner's art:
Is an incredible aqua blue color with earth brown and sea grass highlights. The color transition is much more subtle that the Martinique shown above:
Tourbe Brune is a color we've offered for about a year now and it's become one of our most popular colors. We're now stocking it in a lighter grey/brown and a darker color to offer a bit more diversity.

Hi strap lovers. This strap was made for local customer Bernt's Rolex SDDS ProHunter edition (Also modeled here in the standard Rolex SDDS). I features our exclusive 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) to provide an integrated strap fit to the watch case, Thick Padding and our 'SuperExotica' upgrade, which includes black linen super fine hand saddle stitching and exotic red Eel skin lining. I think is look awesome on the Stainless SDDS and even better on Bernt's Prohunter version.
