Hi strap lovers. I've been a bit overwhelmed with great photos from customers so much so that I find it difficult to post them all up in a timely manner. However, these photos from my good customer Mathieu, being so great, I couldn't resist posting them up right away. This strap was made for his great looking Rolex GMT Master II 126710BLNR, which is watch collecting circles is simply know as the Rolex 'Batman', which give the color theme of the ceramic bezel is entirely self-explanatory. This one is without question my favorite GMT Master II version, as I think the blue and black bezel makes for an exceedingly striking combination. Mathieu ordered this strap on the occasion of the birth of his daughter 'Alice' and upon his request, I stamped her name into the lining of the strap. Congratulations to Mathieu and his Wife on the arrival of new baby Alice!
The strap is made from our SuperMatte Carbon Black Teju Lizard and features padding at the lugs and out 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) upgrades to provide an integrated fit between the lugs. Stitching in black with Light Royal blue accent stitching at the lugs and painted with Royal Blue edge paint to match the blue of the bezel, I think this strap looks very special with this strap indeed. Finally, this strap was lined with our Blue SuperMatte Teju Lizard, which is both soft on the wrist, very durable and well as looking very cool. Mathieu's GMT is certainly my 'Watch of the Week'.

Hi strap lovers, I wanted to share the latest material we recently received from our Italian suppliers. We call this color/finish 'Vintage Dakar'. It's a wonderful vintage brown with tan highlights and I think it will make fabulous straps. The finish is a great semi-matte with just a tiny bit of shine - which I think is perfect for watch straps. The end result will be a wonderfully rugged look that I think will look great with just about any watch. As you can see in these photos, the color of these hides also varies a bit between more brown and more rust color.
I only have 10 of these hides, so perhaps enough for 20 straps, so if you like what you see, please don't hesitate to order right away because I think these will go fast!

Hi strap lovers. I want to share a strap that I've just completed for the recently released Rolex Sea Dweller 126600. This strap was made from Ebony Alligator. I have dubbed this our 'Million Dollar Black' Alligator because every strap I've made from this looks like a million dollars. This strap also features padding at the lugs and our exclusive 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS), which provides an integrated fit between the lugs. This strap also has been built to fit the Rolex OEM bracelet Glide-Lock Clasp. I just love the Glide-Lock clasp and think building the strap to fit this clasp is well worth the modest price of this upgrade (actually the same cost of a new aftermarket deployment clap we offer). This strap is lined with our black motorcycle Kangaroo leather for which is just butter soft and one of our most durable lining option and has been hand saddle stitched in matching black to add an understated appeal. Taken together, I think this strap offers a uniquely custom strap for the Rolex that just can't be beat.
