Great new (for me) forum for Bell&Ross fans!!

Piers the owner of BR-AVO.com invited me to register in has website and to list some straps that I've made for my BR02. And some customs that I've sold. So I stayed up until 2a.m. building a sales thread and loading everything. When I woke up at 7, I check the BR-AVO website and He had given me a front page article not just on the sales forum, on the hole home page for his website!! Needless to say I was floored and very grateful. I've really been working hard on my straps and have gotten a lot of great feed back on my work from many of the members and even owners of other forums and of course my wonderful customers, but never expected to be greeted so warmly. So to Piers and BR-AVO.com I say thank you!! And for everyone reading this, I really encourage to you head over to the BR-AVO.com http://www.br-avo.com/forum/ forum and see what a great community of watch and strap lovers they've got going on. I expect you'll be glad you did.

I've recently added even more thread color options that you can choose from for you bespoken watch straps that I'm very excited about. I now have a wonderful new heather, red, chocolate brown and charcoal grey. And will be adding more in the next weeks. Remember that all my threads are made of natural waxed linen, which is either 7 or 4 ply depending on color availability and is, I think the very best thread available anywhere for any price. Cheers!!

I packed up the car with my beautiful wife and Daughter Amelie and drove to Newport and Laguna Beaches on Saturday. My wife is very patient with me to have let me take a long some of my straps and watched to take even more of our precious family time to do a photo shoot at the beach in preparation for a future website I'm going to start building. Anyway, since I can't sit on a good thing to long and I think these photos turned out pretty good, I though I would add a few to my blog. These are photos of my BR02 on a Dangerous designed strap stitched in Royal Blue. I'll be posting many more photos of my photo safari in the days to come, so check in often. Cheers and Thanks for looking:-)

More Caiman - I'm loving it!!

I just completed a strap where I've taken the Cognac caiman and antiqued it. I've got to say this caiman shin takes color very well and I think this turned out beautifully. I'm going to add this treatment as a regular color option. This particular strap was stitched in 4 ply linen that I doubled for extra strength. I think that with the antique brown and the charcoal grey, this is a very sexy strap:-) Let me know what you think.

Intro special on all Caiman straps!!!

Hi all,

I'm loving working with this new Caiman. It's really butter-soft to the touch, like Kidskin glove leather but bumpy and with scales. Also, a bit of a challenge to work with, as punching the holes for the thread and keeping them straight is much harder than with regular leather. But I've got to say I'm really happy with the results.

If you'd like me to make a Caiman strap for you. Please don't hesitate to contact me. I'd love you work with you to make a strap to your exact specifications.

I'm running a special intro price on these straps - $135 usd plus shipping I think my usual price will be $165 usd. This price won't last forever, so please don't hesitate.

This just in!! yummy Caiman skins!!!

These stunning Caiman skins just arrived this week. I've only had the chance to make 1 strap so far essentially as a practice run, and I'm still learning to work with this terrific material, but I'm very excited about the new straps that will be coming soon. If you have an idea for a custom strap that you'd like me to make, please don't hesitate to e-mail me right away. You can get the part of the skin you find most attractive.
