Batches - Bespoke straps for PAM526


 'Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio PAM 526':






(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers.  One of the things that I like most about my work is my collaboration with clients to design unique and many times one of a kind straps for the watches that they love.  What makes this even more special is to build batches of straps for the same custom (and often for the same watch), giving my customers the ability to change between straps as the mood strikes them or to suit different occasions.  Here a great cases in point and for two very different watches.


The design process can take time to get all the details just right, combining different outer materials, thread colors, and linings in photos for client approval resulting in strap designs that are in perfect harmony with my client's vision and with the design of the watch:











My great client Gerald is fortunate to own what is certainly a grail watch for many of us the Panerai PAM526 Also known as the 'Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio PAM 526'.  This chronograph flyback specially designed for time regatta yacht racing is extremely sporty with Orange and blue center chronograph second hands set on a beautiful black Panera cutout sandwich dial.  This watch is massive and while milled from titanian to reduce weight, does benefit from our 'Fully Integrated Fit' (FIF) which offers integrated fit between the lugs, a pre-curved strap shape and notching to bring the width of the strap to the outside line of the lugs. the strap is then tapered back to the buckle width of choice.  In addition to looking very cool, this upgrade offers a much more secure fit on the wrist, cradling the wrist to achieve the perfect fit. 



I have made several straps for Gerald's PAM526 over the last three years, featuring some of my favorite exotic leathers and with Double Row stitching, interesting and durable exotic leather linings and Exotic wood and Mammoth Ivory buckles made my Ingo of FineWatchBuckles.  Absolutely No corners were cut with the design and building of these straps using the very finest materials and most expensive build options to create sets of straps that are entirely unique and second to none.

SuperMatte Teju Lizard for Omega Planet Ocean 45.5 Co-Axial




Hi, strap loves and Merry Christmas!  My good custom Mike has been kind enough to send along some photos of his great looking Omega Planet Ocean 600m  Co‑Axial 45.5mm with orange numbers on his newly arrived SuperMatte Carbon Black Teju Lizard strap with Orange contrast stitching.  I have darkened the thread with dyed to better match the deep orange of the dial which I think turned out really great.  This strap also features padding at the lugs and our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) which provided an integrated fit between the lugs.  This strap has been lined with our soft and durable Blaze Orange Kidskin which offer a great visual contrast for this strap (even though the lining can't be seen while wearing the watch, I find that a matching lining adds a bit of enjoyment while putting on and taking off the watch).







This strap built to fit Mike's Omega OEM strap deployant clasp, the design of which is really like since the long side strap end tucks to the inside of the wrist, precluding the necessity of keeper loops, therefore offering a very clean, streamlined look.  We also offer this style clasp in an aftermarket (unbranded format) for a very reasonable price for those watch owners who don't have the Omega branded version



All in all, I think this strap is about the perfect combination for Mike's Planet Ocean.  Mike's is certainly our 'Watch of the Week.
