Max's Omega Planet Ocean on Commando Grey SuperMatte Teju Lizard with Integrated Fit

Hi strap lovers.  Straps for the Omega Planet Ocean model watches have become a staple for us in the last few years.  The fun thing about making straps for this model is that while the typical build architecture is the same, the materials and colors can typically be keyed to the watch in such a way as to really offer a super custom uniquely custom look.  Case in point is Max's Titanium 45.5mm Omega Planet Ocean in blue.  This is a great looking watch and very worthy of a special strap.  Made from our Commando Grey SuperMatte Teju Lizard, the color is an ideal match to the Titanium watch case.  Combined with our SuperExotica upgrade - here featuring True Blue french Milled linen thread (superfine hand saddle stitched of course) and blue Sharkskin lining (the color, not the species), the color combination is really what Omega should have offered with this watch. 

This final details here are padding at the lugs which adds some great bulk to the strap to balance this very substantial watch and our unique 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) upgrade, which provides an integrated fit between the lugs.  I think you will agree that this strap is about the perfect combination for this wonderful blue and Titanium Planet Ocean.  Max's will certainly be our 'Watch of the Week'

Strap in Matte Finished Army Green Stingray for Ressence Type 5 DLS Diver

Hi strap lovers.  Here is a strap, which I had made more exactly a year ago for a local customer Benjamin's Black DLC Ressence Type 5 Diver.  These watches are truly spectacular to look at and when I had first seen them several years ago at Munich Time, I was bowled over by the curved Saffire and oil filled presentation.  It looks for all the world that the hands are floating on top of the glass. Or more accurately, that there is no glass at all and if you touch it that you'll actually be touching the dial and hands.

In any case, this awesome diver with its black case is a study in minimalism and does have a military feel about it and so this matte finish Army Green Stingray just works in furtherance of that impression.  I think its a really great pairing and together with the super soft and extremely durable SuperMatte Teju Lizard lining, while also keeping with the paired down theme of this strap, also offers a subtle luxury that only a bespoke strap can offer.  One thing to note for the type 5, have extremely short lugs, curved lugs and spring bars are a requirement for this watch, which necessitates a custom strap.   Benjamin's is certainly our 'Watch of the Week'

Vincenzo's Panda Dial Omega Speedmaster on Matte finished Black Row Stone Stingray

Hi strap lovers, it's rare that I have the opportunity to feature more than two white dial watches in consecutive blog posts, but this is number 2 of a trifecta.  My good customer Vincenzo has been kind enough to send along great photos of his exotica panda dial Omega Speedmaster paired with his just arrived Black Row Stone Stingray. 

I think this combo looks incredibly striking together, the large white Row Stone Pearls of the stingray mirroring but in counter charge the black subdials of the watch.  This Stingray strap was given a more subtle and less flashy matte finish and features a super soft and moisture resistant red Kangaroo leather lining, which sets off the red center second hand and 'Speedmaster' print.  Thanks to Vincenzo for providing these great photos, his will certainly by my 'Watch of the Week!
