Hi strap lovers, We're happy to announce the arrival of 10, 1960's Swiss Ammo Pouches from our Swiss Supplier. These pouches are all in exceptional condition and run from a very light tan (the lightest I've ever seen) to a really nice dark rust. If you've been considering ordering a 1960's Swiss Ammo strap from Dangerous9straps, now is the very best time - first come first reserved!! I look forward to hearing from all of you and Happy Holidays!!

Hi strap lovers, I am very happy to share with you a new strap that I just completed for my Graham Chronofighter Oversize that I picked up earlier this year, and that I love with it's large case and rather elegant panda dial, but hasn't gotten much wrist time because to be honest, the trigger chronograph pusher I found to be quite uncomfortable to actually wear. I've been trying to figure out a custom Dangerous9strap for it and finally decided to take action to build myself a real show stopper of a strap backlog be damned! Well, here is the result. First of all it features a custom asymmetrical bund strap underlayment (discomfort issue resolved). Made from our newly arrived and quite stunning Dark Tourbe Brune Alligator from our ultra premium France Croco Alligator collection (the first strap from this collection that I've made for myself). And also features our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS)for and integrated fit between the lugs, Padding and also our 'SuperExotica' upgrade with Super fine hand saddle stitching in French Ecru linen and lined (including the bund underlayment) with our exclusive SuperMatte Teju Lizard skin (buttery soft and extremely durable). I photographed the strap this evening, and wasn't able to capture the Teju lining, and will try to get some better photos of the strap in day light tomorrow. Of course the bund underlayment is removable so if I want, I can wear just the strap portion if I like. All in all this strap at 65mm wide at it's apex is a beast on the wrist with the big 46mm Graham, but with the Teju Lizard lining extremely comfortable. The Graham Chronofighter is designed to make a powerful statement, isn't it only fitting that it finally has and equally powerful strap to match?

Hi strap lovers, I want to share with you all a 1965 Swiss Ammo strap I just completed. This strap features thick gauge French Ecru accent stitching and Skull rivets in Antiqued Bronze finish. The new think that I would like to direct your attention to is the use of our recently arrived nickle finish Steel Roller buckle and extra metal keeper loop. This is the first chance I've had to show these buckles off (we have them in 18, 20, 22, 24 and 26mm widths). The strap featured here is 20mm wide and is using a 20mm roller buckle with an extra metal keeper loop, which I think gives the strap a real vintage pilot watch look. These buckles are very traditional nickle finish, which is shinny, but as per my customer's request, I have given the buckle and loop a brushed finish. I think is look pretty damn good and I think it's going to look great on Justin's U-Boat watch!!
These buckles are available in 18, 20, 22, 24 and 26mm widths with or without the extra metal keeper loop and give the strap a real vintage Pilot/Military look and are also great with leather Nato straps.
