Hi Strap lovers. I'm really excited about this strap that I just completed today. In keeping with my theme this week of finely made straps, I offer for your appreciation this Ostrich Leg Skin strap in Desert Tan for an IWC Portuguese chronograph. This handmade Dangerous9 strap is build to a finer scale than a lot of the Bell & Ross and Panerai straps at 22mm at the lug and 18mm at the buckle it tapers nicely and together with the padding, it's a realy beauty. Please notice this stitching done in 4 ply linen. With 8 stitches per inch, it's the finest I've done yet. I really enjoy making the finer straps and hope that this will be a real growth part of my business. The ostrich leg skin is a perfect material for making these finer straps. It's butter soft and very supple and just the right thicknes for a dress strap. As I venture into doing custom, handmade straps for such brands as Rolex, Breitling and IWC, I expect that I'll be working in Ostrich more. Thanks for looking!!
