1965 Swiss Ammo Skulls strap for U-Boat with Roller Buckle and extra metal keeper
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.
