Hello all you wonderful strap lovers out there and thank you for visiting my blog. Today I want to show off some a couple of my most recent caiman straps built for Bell&Ross BR01/BR03 (one with stitching and the other without). These turned out really nice. My personal favorite is the stitchless strap made from the leg of the caiman. I usually don’t go for stitchless straps because 1 – I usually like the look of stitching and think it really compliments nearly every strap and 2 – I enjoy the stitch work; it’s one of my favorite parts of building a strap. But in the case the pattern on the caiman leg skin is so complex and beautiful; I think it would have really detracted from the overall visual presentation of the strap and so no stitching. Have a look and let me know what you think. And thanks for any feedback. As alway, if you are interested in purchasing these straps or any straps you've seen in my blog, don't hestiate to e-mail me right away. Cheers!

latest word from one of my many great customers:
"John, it just took 3 days (to Netherlands). Super duper fast eh?! And it looks absolutely stunning . I just put in on my watch and wrist and it won’t leave the wrist for the coming days. Very easy to install, because not too thick leather near the lugs (other straps on the BR gave me a headache because of that).The lining is perfect and I love how the color of the blue linings and the dark brown strap color combination turned out.
I have had quite some straps from different makers and in terms of finish and build quality yours truly belongs to the top. Not many can compare. Maybe it is even the best…. Also some very smart things in it, f.i. the holes in the strap, not too small so that it won’t be torn by wearing and putting that tine metal through it (what’s its name? J). And also a very smart floating keeper. Most I see have the same width on each side, but yours is bigger on the side of the watch head, due to the strap’s shape: simple and so genius.

Man, it is just awesome. Maybe if I find some time this weekend, I could make a few photo’s.

In the meantime, have a great weekend and it has been great experience buying the strap from you. Top notch!"

Thanks for the great review! Cheers!!

Thanks, John. Talk soon!

No, Thank you Tony!! This feed back is going to keep me juiced up and working hard for a good long while!
