Great Customer Pics: John's PAM422 on Barbados Bleu Alligator

Hi strap lovers, I am happy to share some great photos that recently arrived from my great customer John of his new arrived Barbados Bleu Alligator paired up with is PAM422.  This is a really stunning combo.  The Barbados bleu from our ultra premium France Croco Alligator Collection is essentially sold out (I may have the material left for one last strap), but I wanted to share these photos because they are so fantastic.  As you can see, the depth of color of the Barbardo Bleu Alligator like all the hides from France Croco, is just breathtaking and make for the finest Alligator straps I have ever seen.

This strap is lined with our exclusive Verona Gold round scale (I may also just have enough for one last strap lining).

With thick padding at the lugs and featuring French Ecru linen thread - super fine hand saddle stitching, I think this strap is just about a perfect combo with John's PAM422, Which will  be our latest 'Watch of the Week'.  Thanks again John for the great photos!

Newly arrived Alligator for Premium Supplier France Croco

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers, I have recently received a new batch of Alligator hides from our Premium Alligator supplier France Croco and realized that I never made a blog post to announce their arrival.  Yes, I've been so backed up with work I've not been able to post here regularly.  These hides were personally chosen by me and Andrea at France Croco's Milan warehouse on our last trip, and in spite of my delay, I am very excited to have them on hand and ready to make into beautiful custom straps.  As with most of our offering from France Croco, these are limited offerings and most likely we won't be getting these exact colors in the future, so if you want a strap from these, I recommend you not hesitate!

France Croco is a Normandy based Alligator and Crocodile tannery whose hides are among the best available and was recently acquired by Kering (formerly PPR) a holding company that owns such brands as Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQeen, Sergio Rossi, and Girard-Perregaux. We are proud to have France Croco as a supply partner enabling us to offer the finest Alligator skin available. The colors and overall quality of the France Croco skins are consistently among the best I've yet seen.

Caramel D'or: Similar in color to our France Croco Armagnac, but with an even more luminous golden hue, these hides are simply stunning.  The light/dark areas within and between the scales is extraordinary and what gives these hides their incredible beauty.  These are the hides that really blew out budget, but the moment I saw them, I new I hand to have them, cost be damned!

Starry Night: Andrea loves this strap and is certain the other ladies will as well.  Starry Night is a dark mid-nigh blue with a beautiful fine metallic flake finish, giving it a formal pearl like appearance.  I think it could also look great on a mans watch for more formal occasions.  It's very subtle and in some light, will look black - very difficult to capture the beauty of this hide in photos.  This hide is really a one of a kind deal for us and so if you are looking for a deep blue dress strap for formal occasions, I recommend ordering right away.

Dark Olive:  This hide is very cool, a nice dark Olive (Army Green) with more of a matted finish and great color variation within the scales.  This is perhaps one of the most masculine colors I offer in any leather.  If you've got a military watch that needs a strap, you can't go wrong here:

Cognac: This is just about the perfect color for Cognac and will make a stunningly sophisticated strap that would look great with a suit and a pair of tan or cognac loafers or brogues and can paired casually as well with jeans.  The depth of color is stunning with a darker, antique color than the Caramel d'or above.  This hide is also larger than the Caramel D'or, which will be perfect for larger watches like Panerai and Breitlings.
