Hi Strap lovers. I'm happy to share these photos from my very good customer Mike of his IWC Big Pilot on his newly arrived 1962 Swiss Ammo strap. This strap was made featuring the Big Pilot strap shape with notched tapering, mitered strap tip, stitching pattern, as well as our, recently arrived custom screw-back style rivets milled from solid stainless steel.
I must say, I think the IWC Big Pilot watch looks naturally wonderful on a Swiss Ammo strap, the vintage leather is a really great looking combination. Either is this standard IWC Big Pilot strap shape format or with padding and our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS), which you can see here, this watch pairs perfectly with the look and feel of vintage these vintage leathers derived from Swiss Army Ammunition pouches.
I currently have a very nice selection of Swiss Ammunition pouches from which I would be happy to build a custom strap for your watch
Thanks again to Mike, who was kind enough to send along these wonderful photos to share, yours is definitely our 'Watch of the Week'.

One of the great Joys of my business is that occasionally, my great customers send along some wonderful photos of the Dangerous9straps on their watches for me to share. That they would take the time out of their busy lives to make these photos and send them is an unending source of joy to me. Thank you one an all for doing so.
