Custom Ostrich Leg skin strap for Breitling Chronomat with UTC module

Hi strap lovers, I am happy to share some great photos just provided by my great customer Richard of his vintage Breitling Chronomat with UTC module.  These UTC modules make fitting an off the shelf aftermarket strap impossible due to the requirement of having a much shorter long side strap (unless you have a very larger wrist) and the fact that the lug width of the strap at the watch must be 20mm tapering to the 16mm OEM buckle and the width of the strap at the UTC module is only 18mm, tapering to 16mm.  Yes, bespoke is the way to go for these watches!

This strap is made from our Satin finished Black Ostrich Leg skin with thick padding and cream white stitching.  The strap is lined with super soft and durable sky blue lambskin.  I think this strap looks super sexy on Richard's watch.  Thanks Richard for these great photos, yours is our new 'Watch of the Week'!

Row Stone Stingray for Bell & Ross BR02

(click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers.  Row Stone Stingray is something we have offered for over a year now, but it seems to just be catching on as a material option with my customers recently.  Here is a version that I just completed for a Bell & Ross BR02.  This strap is done in black Row Stone Stingray and features a high shine finish (sanded matte finish is also an option is less bling is what you're after).  Padding at the lugs to give the strap an even more substantial look, which I think works very will with Stingray straps in general and is particularly suitable on the thick BR02 dive watch.  This strap is also lined with one of my favorite exotic materials - SuperMatte Teju Lizard, which since it's got a rubberized finish is essentially waterproof and while extremely soft to the touch is super low maintenance - requiring just a wipe-down with a wet paper towel to clean.

I'm been making straps for the BR02 since the very beginning of Dangerous9straps and have made hundreds of straps for this model, and I must say, this is one of my favorites.
