Newly Arrived: Commando Grey SuperMatte Teju Lizard in 22mm lug width

(Click on any photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers, I know I've been posting a lot of Teju Lizard straps recently, and this post is going to be a continuation of that trend.  The strap in question is our newly arrived Commando Grey SuperMatte Teju Lizard.  This color and finish is a Dangerous9straps' exclusive having been developed just for us in collaboration with our Italian Tannery.  This strap represents the latest addition to our Manufacture Collection straps.  Beautifully handcrafted for us in Italy, these straps have all the great built features of our Dangerous9straps bespoke straps:  Thick padding at the lugs, vegetable tanned saddle leather mid-layer for strength and long strap life and black Kangaroo Gloving leathers lining for extreme moisture tolerance and durability.  These straps like every dangerous9strap ever made has been hand saddle stitched using the highest quality French Milled linen thread (in this case in cream white).   However, knowing that my customers love little extra customizable touches, we have ordered a few of these strap with no stitching,  So for a small charge, I can stitch your strap in any color you prefer!

I think the combined attributes of these straps is second to none and are in every detail worth of the Dangerous9straps name.  I think these straps will look great on any number of watches that take 22mm straps including Breitling, Omega and IWC just to name a few.

For pricing on these or any other straps you see here, please e-mail me at: Dangerous9straps@gmail.com

As you can see, it's been modeled here on a Breitling Sea Wolf and it looks great!

Width: 22/20mm,
Length: 125/80mm (to fit wrists measuring 6.75 to 7.75 inches) 
Exterior: Commando Grey SuperMatte Teju Lizard

Gary's Great Looking Omega Planet Ocean on SuperMatte Teju strap in Carbon Black with SuperMatte Teju Lizard lining

(Click on any Photo to enlarge)
Hi strap lovers.  Once in a while, I'm provided with photos from a customer which are truly exceptional.  Case in point are these beautiful photos from my good customer Gary of his great looking Omega Planet Ocean 600m Co-Axial Master Chronometer 43.5mm paired with his newly arrived SuperMatte Carbon Black Teju with Orange SuperMatte Teju Lizard lining.  This strap features padding at the lugs and our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS) which provides an integrated fit between the lugs.  Hand saddle stitched with cream white French linen when combined with the Orange Lizard lining gives this strap just the right amount of 'Pop'.

SuperMatte Finish Perfected:
The SuperMatte Teju Lizard is a Dangerous9straps exclusive material. Based upon the success our SuperMatte Carbon American Alligator, we worked in collaboration with our Italian tannery to develop this finish for Teju Lizard. After much trial and error, we have finally arrived at a finish that we are absolutely thrilled with.  We Currently offer SuperMatte Teju in Black, Red, Blue, Commando Grey, Orange and Walnut Brown. We are extremely pleased with the outcome. The finish a very durable and super soft to the touch.

Perfect for leather linings:
Our SuperMatte Teju Lizard range is fast becoming one of my favorite lining leather options.  Since the SuperMatte finish essentially waterproof (and sweatproof), this is our most durable lining option requiring little in the way of maintenance beyond the occasions swipe with a damp cloth to keep looking new.  Additionally, since they can make this finish in just about any color, offer a really great flash of color to just about any watch/strap combo is possible.  And last but certainly not least, the Lizard leather pattern not only looks very, very cool but its texture promote a bit of air circulation between the strap and the skin adding to the comfort of the strap.  So what we have here is a win-win-win-win!

Omega style deployant clasp:
I've recently become a huge fan of the Omega Style deployant clasp (we offer this style unbranded in 16, 18, and 20mm widths and in brushed and polished stainless steel and can get them in Yellow and Rose Gold finish as well).  This thing that I find most appealing about this style claps is that since the long side strap tucks to the inside against the wrist, there is no need of keeper loops, giving the straps a very clean finish on the wrist.  Also, since this style clasp requires no clamp closure which can damage the finish of the strap (Like the Tag Heuer style clasps) or strange crimps (like the Breitling style deployant clasps), I think it will add to the overall durability of the strap.

New Addition to Our Alligator Offerings from Premium Alligator Supplier France Croco

Hi Strap lovers, Digging through my Alligator Hides, I came upon one that had been shipped to me last year from our premium Alligator supplier France Croco that I had neglected to make any of my customers aware of either via a blog post or by adding it to my France Croco Alligators slideshow!  This oversight creates a bit of an opportunity for my customer to get a fresh crack this one-of-a-kind hide for their custom strap project.

So color is called 'Vin du Vieux-Port' (old port wine), and this is an apt description, as it really is the color of old port wine (Just about a perfect mix of Brown and Burgundy).  This hide is not so large, so I'll be lucky, to get 8-10 straps from it - this making it very exclusive.  If you've been looking for a unique color for your custom strap project:
