Hi strap lovers, here is the a prototype meant to fit a vintage Rolex Sub or other smaller watch from our 'SuperExotica' line of straps using Dangerous9straps exclusive antiqued American Alligator technique. The vintaged alligator, we think will match well with vintage Rolexs. Back story: My wife is working on a movie project (she's a film editor) with noted Germany film director Niki Muellerschoen, with whom I share a love of watches. His passion seems to be primarily in the area of vintage Rolex Subs, which are a little rich for my wallet, but he's asked my to build some straps for him, which are in the works. He's also arranging a meeting with the owner of a Munich vintage watch shop. So, I thought I should build a handful of straps that are proportioned appropriately for these smaller dimensioned watches, while still exhibiting all the character of a Dangerous9straps.
This strap features thick padding at the lugs and our exclusive 'SuperExotica' upgrade with super fine hand saddle stitching using small gauge 3 ply waxed Irish Linen and very supple, exotic Eel skin lining. it's 20mm at the lugs and 18mm at the polished pin buckle. This is a stunning example of the series and will be a great match to any number of vintage or dress watches.
Here is the completed strap slide show:
