Hi strap lovers! I'm very proud to announce my latest and most exciting strap series to date - "SuperExotica" from Dangerous9straps.

The Idea is direct in its aproach and elegant in its execution - The most Exotic skins inside and out, build to the most luxurious standards.

My first prototype is a strap made for the Bell & Ross BR01 using rugged looking Bullfrog skin in Black, lined with super soft Eel skin lining. Hand saddle stitching using extra fine 7 stitches per inch with Butterscotch 4 ply Irish waxed Linen thread. The "SuperExotica" series from Dangerous9straps is now available for all watches using many of our ultra exotic skins such as American Alligator, Stingray, Cane Toad, Bullfrog, Ostrich Leg, Python and many others.

Hi strap lovers, I just wanted to let everyone know that I've been collecting some rare and unusual exotic skins and leathers over the past couple of months to offer you to make some really great looking and unusual straps, including Salmon skin, Talapia leather, and Eel skin (Can be great as top of strap or super luxury lining), and Cow's belly leather/Rumen leather (which has and incredible pattering). As you can see from the slide show below, these leathers come in wonderful colors and textures and will make wonderful and one of a kind custom watch straps. If you are looking for something completely new, you should really give these a close look. Additionally and not unimportantly, like all Dangerous9 exotic skins and leathers, these are from sustainable sources and in most cases are byproducts of the food industry and in and in every case are from animals that are in no way endangered or threatened, so you can wear these straps with a clear consience as well.

Fine American Alligator for Michael's Dubey & Schaldenbrand

(click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers, Here is a really terrific American Alligator strap that I made for my good customer Michael. It's to be paired with a really wonderful Dubey & Schaldenbrand Aquadyn with a dark blue dial. I've been admiring the D&S watches for a really long time, I just love the art deco design of these watches, but allas, I've not been able to scrape together the $$ to buy one for myself (ah, so many great watches, so little money:-). Anyway, If I was to buy one, I would get the blue dialed version that Michael has and build myself a strap just like this one that's going to Michael. It's a really beauty, with nice substantial padding at the lugs and finely hand stitched with 4 ply Irish waxed linen in Royal Blue to set off the blue of the dial. Man, what a combo!! Lined with Dangerous9strap's exclusive French Lambskin for comfort. This strap drips luxury, which is fitting for a super classy watch like a Dubey & Schaldenbrand Auqudyn. I hope Michael sends me some great photos of his new American Alligator strap all mounted up to his great Dubey & Schaldenbrand. And if he does, I'll be posting them here pronto, so you can see for yourself what a great combo this is.

A Couple of Ostrich Leg straps for Tom's Breitling

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers, here are some photos of a couple of straps that I recently completed for Tom's Breitling with a deployment fitment. I really like how these Ostrich strap look and it's currently my favorite exotic skin to work with. I think you can see why. These skin colors are called Serpentine (Grey/blue) and Sunrise both are hand stitched with Royal blue linen to match his watch dial and lined with Dangerous9strap's exclusive French Lambskin. I'm currently on back order with the Sunrise Ostrich, but hope to have it back in stock soon. The Serpentine, I have in stock now, but if you'd like a strap made from it, I wouldn't hesitate, because it's in limited supply.

Here is the full slide show of Sunrise Ostrich with Royal Blue linen:

Ilan's Grey Moss Nubuck Shark for Armida A1

(Click to enlarge any photo)

Hi Strap lovers. Here is a strap that I just completed this week for my friend and good customer, Ilan from Isreal. He found the Armida A1 based on my recommendation and then ordered a strap to match my own. We've development a great friendship over the last few months trading ideas about watches, watch straps and more importantly about life, so I feel a very special bond with him and am very happy that he ordered the same Armida A! "Super Dome" with Orange minute hand and that we'll be sharing the same strap combo. I think every time I strap on the Armida, I'll think of him over in Isreal perhaps doing the same. Anyway, Thanks to Ilan for his business and his friendship and I hope he gets as much enjoyment from his Armida as I have mine. Now for some great photos:-)
