I just wanted to share some a great photo that was sent to me from my good customer Sergio from the great state of New Jersey. He's really happy with his new Dangerous9strap. He came to me via a recommendation from Nelson of Paneraisource.com - big thanks for the referral!!

Here is a strap that I recently completed for my good customer here in Irvine, California for his Choppard mille miglia. He wanted a rally strap in black and red and this one turned out to be a beaut. If you have an idea for a custom strap for your Chopard watch or any other brand, please e-mail me right away and we can come up with a design for a strap you'll love. Best of all it will be completely handmade by me to your exact specifications. Each of my straps are signed and serial numbered, and no 2 are exactly alike.
Hi guys, above is my new DSN Big Egi Homage that just came in the mail last Friday. I think it's real looker and it's running very well. At 52mms, it's a size that while quite large for me, is not clown like (as I'm sure the 60mm version would be)
This watch is running the Swiss 6497, which I think will be reliable. I really like the clean look of the sterile dial. It reminds me of the RWC Egi homage, which is a great watch, but at $1100 is to rich for me at the moment. I really prefer the sapphire crystal. I know it's not "vintage", but I just don't really like plexi.

Since this watch doesn't have the small seconds hand, the Nightwatch vintage dial mod is not possible, so this watch is not going the vintage route. If I decide to do a vintage Egi in the future, I'll go ahead and buy the other DSN Egi and have one of each.

The watch arrived with a strap, which was awful, and so was put on an Extra D9 strap I have lying around with no home. Even though this strap was not designed for the Egi, I think it looks great. The no stitch strap really looks great with the minimalist sterile dial, so I think this is the combo I'll be happy with for a while.

The watch also arrived wit an extra solid case back, which I was not expecting and is a really nice bonus - Thanks Davidsen! (Although I do like looking at the movement, so it'll stay with the glass for now I think).

Last thing: the lume on this watch is incredible! It's among the very best I have and is comparable to the lume jobs done by Zig, Vac and Kent Parks!! It's nice to get a watch in this price range from a manufacturer that doesn't need a lume job:)
So here are a stack of photos I took this Saturday (can you tell I'm really happy with this watch!!) :

Here's a strap I made for Pete my very good customer and watch collector from the UK. He saw the Britsh tan and Royal blue strap I had for sale a while ago and wanted me to make a duplicate for his BR01 White dial. I must say I really love this watch and the strap combo is killer! I you're interested in having me make you a strap for your Bell & Ross like this or in any combo, please let me know. I'd be happy to work with you to make you a strap you'll love.

Darren's BR02 with D9 strap

Here is a great strap combo I make this week for Darren in the UK. He'd requested a vintage/distress black with grey stitching. I've got to say I wasn't completly sold on the combo, but seeing these photos he's made has totally changed my mind. Darren's obviously got a much keener eye for a great color combo than I do. Thanks again Darren for the great review on TZ-UK(link to complete review on TZ).

Nelson from Paneraisource.com just completed a review of a strap I sent him about 3 weeks ago. He's been really happy with his new strap and I want to share his review and show some photos of the strap I sent. This one is a real beaut. Thanks again Nelson for the "highly recommended" rating.

Rediscover Black and White

Here's a strap I made for my customer John from Hollywood, CA. John contacted me a couple of weeks ago. Turns out he's local and lives in Hollywood just a few miles from my wife's apartment. I agree to meet him a couple of Saturdays ago and swing by his house. He's got a nice little bungalow off Sunset Boulevard with a nice garden where we sit and have a nice chat about life and watches. Turns out he's a Brit and a film composer working for Television. It's funny, my wife is in the "business" as an independent film editor and she has quite a few composer friends. Anyway, he was looking for a strap for his Pam 111 and decides on black with white stitching. I've done quite a few Pam straps, but oddly not in this rather classic combo. As a strap maker and one that really likes to go "hog wild" with staining and "antiquing" my straps, Black leather doesn’t really offer much of a challenge from a technical perspective, so I really don't give it much thought. But I have to tell you that I really love how this strap turned out. The white stitching with the "outstitch" at the lug really looks sharp and I think my "D9" logo buckle really looks great too. I'm really looking forward to seeing it mount to that Pam 111.
