Hi strap lovers, One of the joys of my work it that it occasionally allows me to interact with really great customers and their incredible watches. Case in point is my good customer Peer. Having the chance to meet my custom in my workshop and to design a strap in collaboration my customer in person is a rare treat and affords me the opportunity to handle the watch and compare and contrast different materials to arrive at a design that most ideal for both the watch in question the personal taste of my customer. If you ever find yourself planning a trip to the Munich area, I would love to make an appointment with you to design a strap in person. The hundreds of material options available can result in thousands of possible strap combinations, so you can really geek out on your strap design. Ideally, you will come away with a strap design that should have been the strap that should have been offered with the watch from the manufacturer, while at the same time reflecting your own unique personality.
Peer's stunning IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar and Rose Gold is simply a stunning watch and these photos just do not do it justice. Paired with a strap made from Carbon Black SuperMatte Ostrich Leg skin (one of our newest materials and one which I'm very excited about). This strap features padding at the lugs and our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS), which provides and integrated fit between the lugs, Steel Grey French milled linen thread (super fine hand saddle stitching) and our soft and extremely durable Commando Grey SuperMatte Teju Lizard skin lining. I think the combo is just perfect for this watch.
