BullFrog for Linford's Ennebi

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers.  I wanted to share one our latest strap build's for my very good customer Linford from the US.  Bullfrog is a really great Exotic skin for watch straps, thin and strong with a really interesting patterning and texture, it's not like any other exotic out there.  Linford's strap was made to be fitting to an Ennebi watch and I think it's going to look really great.  Linford's strap features Dangerous9strap's exclusive 'SuperExotica' upgrade with a beautiful, soft and exotic Ebony Eel skin lining and super fine hand saddle stitching using top quality German milled linen thread in Beach Sand color (new thread for us) from our ever expanding thread collection.

1944 Swiss Ammo strap for Akira's BR03 Phantom

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers.  I wanted to share some photos from my very good customer Akira from Japan of his BR03 Phantom pair with his recently arrived Dangerous9 1944 Swiss Ammo strap.  This strap was stitched with our very rare Authentic WWII era Swiss Army linen in vintage earth (which we have in extremely limited supply) and pared with our custom manufactured vintage style flat buckle with matted PVD finish.  I think this watch is a real beauty and the watch/strap combo is really killer as well.  Thanks Akira for these photos.  Yours is our 'Watch of the Week'!

Dangerous9straps: OEM strap maker for Kaventsmann Triggerfish A2


(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers.  Dangerous9straps is extremely please to have been chosen to build the OEM strap for Kavenstmann's recently released Triggerfish A2!  While this model has been sold out (in record time), I strongly recommend you stay tuned to the KaventsmannUhren FaceBook page for their next model.  These watches are really incredible and released in very limited numbers (the Triggerfish A2 was limited to 30 watches) and highly collectable.  Here is a look at the second installment of 15 straps made for the Triggerfish, which I think turned out fantastic and should be every bit a durable as the Triggerfish A2.  Entirely handmade from 4-5 oz vegetable tanned leather and hand stained and dyed our custom Antique Walnut finish and custom stamped "Handmade by Dangerous9straps for Kaventsmann" then hand saddle stitched using Miliary Green 4 ply waxed Irish linen thread, these straps are a fitting compliment to the Triggerfish A2.

Hi strap lover's.  I want to share some photos sent by my very good customer Tony from Thailand.  Showing off his newly arrived Swiss Ammo strap on a PAM0005 and French Ammo strap on a PAM000.  Of course like all our straps they've been completely handmade and hand saddle stitched - in this case using 4 ply ecru Waxed Irish linen.  These are really beautiful examples of how great these straps look on the watch.  Thanks Tony for your efforts providing us these.  Your's are 'Watches of the Week'

Ebony Hornback American Alligator for PAM233

Hi strap lovers, I wanted to share the latest custom Dangerous9straps Hornback American Alligator strap for my very good customer Serge from Vienna.  This one is stitched with black 4 ply waxed Irish linen thread for a more subtle look and so as not to distract from the big beautiful horns.  Upgraded with our exclusive 'SuperExotica' featuring a really beautifull Charcoal Eel skin lining - one of our latest new Eel skin colors.  As you can see, the Alligator Hornback section at the lugs has been spliced with carefully matched Alligator belly skin lower down on the strap.  Building Hornback Alligaotr straps this way is a great deal more work.  In fact to get a really good match, requires careful selection of the belly skin portion and a lot of skill to make the splice look natural.  We have begun splicing all our Hornback Alligator straps with belly skin where the strap interfaces the buckle, which results in a better functioning strap and one that is more comfortable to wear, is more durable and that works better with a buckle.  Additionally this allows the option of double keepers (1 sewn-in and 1 floating) and even the option of a deployment clasp.  I have only seen a couple of strap makers that have the skill and patience to build their Hornback straps this way, but I think the results are certainly worth the effort to not only make a better looking strap, but also one that functions better and is more durable.

Great looking and super smooth Charcoal Grey Eel skin lining:

Hi strap lovers, Here are a couple of recently completed German Ammo straps for my very good customer Syed from the US for his PAM312.  These old leathers are quite beautiful and very vintage dated 1911 and 1941, these are showing incredible color  and character as is appropriate for pouches that have seen so much history.  Hand saddle stitching using Ecru and Butterscotch 4 ply waxed linen thread,  both straps feature our custom 3mm thick 24mm wide vintage style flat 'D9' buckle with a polished finish that I think looks really incredible with these truly historic leathers.
