Hi strap lovers. Here are some great photos of a new Dangerous9strap that I build for my great customer Stephan who's local here as was able to pickup his strap and allowed me the opportunity to that a few photos of his new Tan & Slate Grey linen "Weekender Series" by strap all mounted up to his great PAM351. Great looking watch and I think the combo is just killer. I'm currently offering the Weekender Series nubuck straps in light Tan (which you see here), Coco Brown, Vintage Black and a really great light Grey (New this week).

Hand Antiqued Alligator strap by Dangerous9!!!

(Click on any photo to Enlarge)

Hi strap lovers. Dangerous9straps is very pleased to announce that we are now able to offer a totally custom hand antiqued American Alligator strap, which will be one of a series of Hand Antiqued Alligator alligator straps. These straps will be built to the same high standards as all Dangerous9 Exotic skin straps, but with the addition of Antiquing that is applied by hand in a multi-stage process that results in the exquisite strap that you see here. we have been experimenting with Antiquing Cognac Caiman since the very beginning of our introduction of that material, however, the hand antiquing process shown here in American Alligator is completely new in that every single scale is individually hand dyed to achieve a finish that truly must be seen to be believed. Given that each strap is individual, based on the individual scale pattern and add to it that each scale of each and every strap will be hand dyed and stained to achieve this incredible finish, these straps with out question will be one of a kind masterpieces of the stapmaker's art. The prototype strap you see pictured here is called Antique tobacco and has also been upgraded as a "SuperExotica" strap with super fine hand saddle stitched using Chocolate 4 ply Irish waxed linen thread and Ultra Luxury Eel skin lining. In total, these design concepts are only offered by Dangerous9straps. We are committed to offer the very best and most distinctive watch straps on earth! Offering only the very best hand build, hand stitched straps, using only the very finest leathers and exotic skins in the most interesting combinations to make one of a kind custom watch straps.

Arnaud's Ostrich Leg strap for Hamilton

Hi strap lovers, here is a newly complete Dangerous9 strap for my good customer Arnaud from Nice. This strap is based on his design request to have his strap widen and wrap the lugs. He was kind enough to provide me exact measurements of the watch so I was able to build his strap for a really great fit. These sorts of straps are always difficult to accomplish well without the watch, but this one turned out to have a stellar fit and I think looks really great on the wrist. I just love the Desert Tan Ostrich Leg skin, which is without question my favorite exotic skin. Made to fit an aftermarket deployment clasp I would like to thank Arnaud for his wonderful design and these great photographs of the strap and watch togther. Looking at his pictures taken in the gorgeous sunshine of the French Riviera, it makes me home sick for my Southern California home.

Ilan's 1899 Swiss Ammo strap for his new Magretta Bronze

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers, this is a strap that I build for my good friend and customer, Ilan from Tel Aviv. It's made from a very rare Swiss Ammo pouch dated 1899 That's right this pouch is 111 years old. Considering the age of the leather, I think it turned out remarkably well and is only showing some surface cracking (as we all will at 111 yrs). Build with Dangerous9straps exclusive Vintage style, flat "D9" logo buckle it's a great combo with this strap. And, I think it's a great combination for the Magretta Bronze with it's classic lines and beautiful brown dial. Ilan was kind enough to have the watch delivered right to me from the manufacturer to have the strap mounted and to allow me the oportunity to photograph it for him. Thanks again Ilan for all you for your generous offer to get my hands on your watch!!

Here is the full slide show of the completed strap:

(click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers. Here is an amazing new Dangerous9 strap I just finished this week for my good customer Tim for Singapore. He's got a new Panerai 359 that he wanted to have this very special strap made for. Made form one of my newly acquired collection of Tilapia skins, the color is an incredible golden brown and will look great with the vintage tan colored lume of the PAM359 sandwich dial. Lined with super strong and moisture resistant Kangaroo leather, it'll be perfect for the moist environs of Singapore. I can't wait to see the photos of this strap mount on his watch!

Mark's polished Emergency Orange Stingray for BR01 Orange LE

(click of any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers, I've been a really busy strap maker and have a lot of really Dangerous9straps to share with you from the past couple of weeks, but first up. I wanted to share a strap that I build to Mark from the US for his Bell & Ross BR01 Orange Limited Edition watch. This strap is just awesome and was a lot of fun to build. Made form Emergency Orange Stingray and incorporating the eye portion of the skin and lined with Australian Kangaroo, I also polished as per Mark's preference to give it that great mottled look that is so appealing about polished stingray. polishing Stingray skin is a bit of a tricky affair don't sand enough and you don't get the great look that you want, but take too much and the piece is ruined! And to the fact that this is a one of a kind skin and if I ruin it, there is no getting any more (I do have enough of this skin to make many more straps, but not with the "eye"), it makes for nail biting work. Luckily, Mark was happy with the final strap and so am I. He was kind enough to send along some great photos of his strap nicely mounted to his beautiful BR01-94 Orange Ti Limited Edition. Looks great Mark, Thanks for the effort of sending me these photos!
