It's our exclusive Grey-Moss Shark skin, which is one of my favorite exotic we have and look tops stitched with Royal Blue linen to match the cool blue of his Helson Sharkediver. I have to say that this looks about the perfect combination for this watch and Michael's photos are just incredible.

Stephan's PAM343 on 1953 Swiss Ammo strap

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers, When Stephan contacted be to build a Swiss Ammo strap for his beautiful Panerai 343, I was very happy to hear from him, as we had build a black stingray strap for his PAM343 in the year previous for which he'd provided some great photos and I was keen on getting a more from him this time whis his watch mounted up with a Dangerous9straps' Swiss Ammo. Of course Stephan didn't disappoint with his photos and I think he choose a really great design: tapering nicely from 27mm at the lugs to 22mm at the buckle and with just accent stitching in black 4 ply waxed Irish linen, this strap shows elegance of design while at the same time highlighting the rugged patina of the 1953 Swiss Ammo pouch. Paired with his rare and beautiful PAM343, to me this strap and watch make for just about a perfect combination. Thanks Stephan for these great photos and your continuing business!

Scott's Graham Silverstone on Double stitched 'Weekender Series' strap

( Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers, I wanted to share with you a few photos of my good customer Scott's Graham Silverstone on his latest Dangerous9 'Weekender Series' strap. The 'Weekender Series' Nubuck leather has turned out to be one of the most flexible leathers we offer in terms of the diversity of design applications. From the most casual to very formal, the leather looks great made into just about any kind of strap from the large scale Paneria and Bell & Ross style strap to the narrower, smaller scale strap featured in Scott's graham. Scott's strap is only 20mm wide and looks great with double hand saddle stitching using super fine 3 ply waxed Irish linen thread in Royal Blue and Grey to match the colors of Scott's great looking Graham Dial. This is some of the finest stitching we've done yet with the stitch line you see here being less than 2mm apart. Heavily padded and with curved lugs to form fit the Graham Silverstone watch case, this is strap strap Graham should have offered with it's watch. Thank you Scott for the wonderfull photos, your Graham Silverstone is our 'Watch of the Week'.

Marc's Antiqued Cognac Caiman Leg skin for Jeager Lecoultre

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers. I wanted to share with you some great photos from my good customer, Marc from Prague. I love this Jeager Lecoultre Master Compressor Chronograph (as I do virtually their entire line) and think the Antiqued Cognac Caiman is a great. This strap features thick padding which I think looks great on these Caiman leg strap, Australian Kangaroo lining and charcoal 4 ply waxed Irish linen accent stitching. Fitted with double keepers and an aftermarked brushed stainless steel deployment clasp that combinations is, as you can see from these photos a real stand out. Thanks Marc for the great photos. Your JLC is my 'Watch of the Week'!

Doug's 1966 Swiss Ammo strap for PAM243

(click any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers. When Doug contacted me to build a very special Dangerous9strap strap for his very special PAM243, I was more than happy to help. He wanted a 1960's Swiss Ammo strap, but wanted it to have a great color and patina. After considering several different pouches we settled on 1966 Swiss Ammo pouch that had just right color and patina. Combined with Olive Drab 4 ply waxed Irish linen and our exclusive 'D9' logo upgraded Vintage style, sewn-in buckle, I think you're agree that this strap is special indeed and will look great paired with his PAM243.

Patrick's Vintage French Ammo strap for Lum-Tec 300M- XL

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers. When our very good customer Patrick contacted us looking for a very special French Ammo strap for his father I was intriged. When he then related that his grandfather had been active in French resistant during WWII and that he was looking for a very special Frence Ammo strap from that period for his Father's new Lum-Tec 300m-XL, I was inspired to do whatever I could to find just the right leather to make a great strap. Here is the resulting strap. I think you agree that it turned out really great. The leather is very supple considering the age and has a great patina.
