New Review on PaneraiCentral.com - SuperMatte Graphite Blue Alligator

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers, I'm really excited to announce the posting of a new review by PaneraiCentral.com of a strap made from our exclusive SuperMatte Alligator in Graphite blue.  This strap is very unique featuring our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) providing strap strap an integrated strap/watch case interface.  Lined with custom dyed Turquoise Eel skin and stitched with matching French linen thread, this strap has striking good looks and I think look incredible on Khalil's PAM312.  For more photos of the watch and strap head over to PaneraiCentral.com and read the full review!

Here are a few of my photos of this great looking strap:

2 Stingray straps for PAM48.

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

I built these 2 stingray straps for my great customer Kim from the US and I'm really happy with how they've turned out.  In Petroleum (which is sort of a Green-grey color and which I really love) and Ocean Blue, both with Central pearls, you can really see from these, that no two central pearl areas form 2 separate Stingray skins is the same (these are from the same sized hides as well).  The Petroleum straps is shown here lined in Red Eel skin, but was ultimately switch out to bone upon customer's request.  I think the red Eel looks great.  The Ocean Blue Stingray strap is lined in Bone Eel skin, which has been and extremely popular combo since Khalil from Panerai Central's review last year.  Before I shipped these out, I always check the fitment if I can, here using my wife's PAM51 as a stand-in.  I couldn't resist snapping a few photos to share.

Early production Dangerous9straps

Hi strap lovers.  Like most production business, we have some old stock and early production items hanging around.  in our case these straps tend to be straps that I build early in my strap making career that or some prototypes or items that have been returned for whatever reason or were never sold and are in a small pile taking up space.  These straps are (luckily very few in number) for sale and upon request, I can provide a link to a slideshow where you can take a look.  One of those straps is featured here.  These photos sent by my good customer Dave of his great looking Paul Smith Automatic paired with a vegetable leather strap in Marine Cordovan with Ecru linen stitching.  It's a pretty rustic strap when compared with straps I'm making today, this strap was from 2010 and was probably among the first 50 straps I ever made.  But a 4mm + thickness of vegetable tanned leather and stitched with monster 7 ply waxed Irish linen thread, it will last for ever and will look pretty good while doing it.  Thanks Dave for the great photos!

Ricardo's Oris Small Seconds Diver on Grey-Moss Nubuck Shark skin

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers.  Here are some photos I took of a recently completed strap for my good customer Richardo from right here in Germany.  He was kind enough to send me his beautiful Oris small seconds Diver for fitment. I think it turned out about perfect. This strap features custom dyed French milled linen and Eel skin lining to match the light Orange Dial indices.  The super soft Nubuck Shark skin has been heavily reinforced at the lugs to assure a perfect fit and prevent stretch over time. I think this makes for a stunning combo.
