Awesome New Alligator Skins from Ultra Premium Supplier France Croco!!!!

Barbados

Martinique Bleu 

Tourbe Brune: Light and dark
Etain Gris

Hi strap lover, we just received a new shipment of skins from our Premium Alligator supplier France Croco.  These skins were hand chosen by me and Andrea on our last buying trip to France Croco's Milan Warehouse and very special indeed and in some cases are one of a kind, so for instance on the Etain Gris and Barbados and Martinique Bleu are one of a kind skin and probably won't have the possibility of restocking so it you're interested in having a strap made from these, don't wait long to make your request.

More on France Croco:
France Croco is a Normandy based Alligator and Crocodile tannery who's 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 the best I've yet seen.

Etain gris: 
'Etain Gris' or Pewter Grey is a beautifully finished medium grey with a hand rubbed antiqued finish that results in this unique and one of a kind color.  As with a number of our current offerings from France Croco, this finish is hand applied by highly experienced master craftsman at their tannery in Normandy, France.




Marintque Bleu:
Martinique Bleu is quite simply one of the most beautiful Alligator skins Andrea and I have ever seen.  This hide is a unique hand applied finish that has been done in a multi-stage process and in a one of a kin color.  Featuring a stunning turquoise blue center scale section that has been hand rubbed with a earth tan antique stain between the scales, it's an absolutely stunning example of the tanner's art:




Barbados:
Is an incredible aqua blue color with earth brown and sea grass highlights.  The color transition is much more subtle that the Martinique shown above:



Tourbe Brune:
Tourbe Brune is a color we've offered for about a year now and it's become one of our most popular colors.  We're now stocking it in a lighter grey/brown and a darker color to offer a bit more diversity.

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.

Introducing Newly Arrived Alligator: Saint-Tropez Bleu from Premium Alligator Supplier France Croco!!!





Hi Strap lover, I am very excited to introduce our most recently arrived Alligator Hides from Ultra Premium Alligator Tanner: France Croco.  Given the overwhelming demand for our Martinique Bleu, we ask France Croco to check their warehouse for additional hides that might be in that color range.  What they came up with are these 2 hides that I think, while slightly different, are just as incredible.  While these skins don't show nearly as much antiquing at the edges and on the tail section as the original Martinique Bleu, they are overall the same beautiful turquoise blue with light antiquing between the scales as the most desirable center belly section of the original Martinique bleu hide. We are naming these hides Saint-Tropez Bleu.  If you wanted to order a Martinique Bleu strap from Dangerous9straps but were to late, our new Saint-Tropez Bleu is your second chance, but don't hesitate, these skins are going to go very quickly!!

The colors and overall quality of the France Croco skins are by far the best I've yet seen. Have a look at this slide show of our France Croco skins.

SuperMatte Alligator for Audemars Piguet Diver






Hi strap lovers.  I'm happy to present the latest version of our SuperMatte Alligator for Audemars Piguet Diver.  This sporty finished Alligator is a perfect combination with this watch.  This is the second strap I've made for the Royal Oak OffShore Diver and I must say the fitment is even better than the first strap I made from our Racing Black Teju Lizard - the fitment at the lugs being perfect on this strap - including an even cleaner finish in the strap back at the lugs.  Featuring super fine hand saddle stitching with our best French black linen thead and   lined with soft and durable Tripon Kidskin in Baltic Blue, this strap has a wonderful luxury feel on the wrist.  Reinforced at the lugs with vegetable tanned Kangaroo leather for strength, I'm confident this strap will last for many year and look great while doing it.









The SuperMatte Carbon American Alligator is and awesome material - soft, but with an extremely durable finish.  Part of our premium France Croco skins collection, France Croco is a Normandy based Alligator and Crocodile tannery who's hides are by far 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 the best I've yet seen.
