Hi strap lovers, I'm happy to share with you Dangerous9straps' latest very special Swiss Ammo strap dated from 1918!   Swiss Ammo pouches from this era - early in the last century are getting pretty rare and this on even more special in that the color was amazing the the stampings large are very readable.  This strap was made for friend and long time customer Clinton Jackson for his PAM273 and I've very happy with how it's turned out.  These very old and special pouches are one that I set aside for special customers that want a strap this is extremely historic and unique.

Polished Fuschia Rose Stingray Strap Modeled on PAM049


Tim's Anonimo on 1960's era Swiss Ammo strap

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers.  I wanted to share this great photo of my very good customer Tim's Anonimo Millemetri Polluce on his newly arrived 1960's era Swiss Ammo Dangerous9strap.  This strap is made from the front of the pouch and has no stampings, but still shows the really beautiful leather that makes these Swiss Ammo strap so desirable.  Also, since these leathers have been given a bath of waxes and oils as part of the original pouch manufacturing process, they are among the most water resistant leathers we offer.  So it you're planning to swim with your strap, the Swiss Ammo leather would be my top of my recommendations.

Dirty Denim for BR03 - our latest addition to our Safari Collection!!

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi Strap lovers.  I'm really happy to share the latest addition to our Safari Collection - Dirty Denim strap for Bell & Ross BR03.  This classic watch is becoming a strap collector's dream because of the relative ease of switching straps and it's basic, no nonsense design is ideal for dressing up with many different straps that can totally change the look of the watch.  Case in point is our latest completed strap for our Safari Collection  - Dirty Denim from our British bespoke tanner Tusting and Burnett.  This leather is simply luscious in a dark Blue-Grey with wonderful grainy texture.   Stitched with Butterscotch 4 ply waxed Irish linen thread and lined with our newly arrived Australian Chestnut Kangaroo leather, it's and all Commonwealth content strap.... well except that it's been handmade by and American in Germany:-)  Did I mention the Chestnut Kangaroo is buttery soft on the wrist?

Hand Antiqued Cheval Brun Alligator for IWC Portuguese

France Croco - Cheval Brun


Hi strap lovers.  I wanted to share a few photos of our newly completed France Croco American Alligator - This color is Cheval Brun with our special Hand Antiquing upgrade.  France Croco is our newest ultra premium Alligator supplier that we are very excited about (read all about them here). You can see from looking at the original skin (which is very beautiful in it's own right) and the final strap what a difference the 'Hand Antiquing' finish makes in giving the strap a real vintage Alligator look.  The strap you see here also features our 'SuperExotica' upgrade with super fine hand saddle stitching using fine German milled Linen thread in Royal Blue and custom navy blue dyed Eel skin lining.  I think the is going to make an incredible combination for our customer's IWC Portuguese Chronograph!
