Custom Dyed Orange Alligator for Audemars Piguet Diver

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers,  I am happy to share with you some photos of a recently completed custom dyed Orange Alligator strap that I recently completed for a Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph (modeled here on an AP Diver).  This is the first custom Orange dyed Alligator I've done and I think it has turned our really great.  This strap was made from undyed Alligator, which we stock in our Veneto Alligator Collection in order that I can custom dyed to just about any color our customer's desire.

To this: 

I have been using reinforcement of vegetable tanned kangaroo leather at the lugs of these AP ROOS watches for some time now and with great success. The original AP straps use brass inserts, however this design requires very thin leather (about .3mm) and combined with the sharp edges of the brass metal inserts are the cause of early strap failure of the OEM straps.  I have no need of your watch in order to build a strap to fit your AP Diver.
