Hi strap lovers, Today's feature is a strap that I made for my good customer Vivian's Rolex Sea Dweller 126600. Upon its completion, I had the good fortune to have another customer's watch in the shop for a strap build and was able to take some photos showing the excellent fitment (A Big Thank You to Stephan of allowing me to use his watch as a model for these photos!). This strap made from our SuperMatte Carbon Black Teju Lizard with padding at the lugs and our 'Thick Curved Lug System' (TCLS), which provides the strap with an integrated fit between the lugs. The SuperMatte Carbon Black Teju Lizard is a material that we developed a few years ago in collaboration with our Italian tanners base upon the success of our Alligator of the same finish and has quickly become one of our most in-demand strap materials. This strap is paired with a custom blended deep red edge paint, accent stitching at the lugs and Dino Red Kidskin lining to match the deep red 'SEA-DWELLER' printed on the dial. All in all, I think this strap is just about the perfect combination for this watch.
This strap has been made to pair with our aftermarket (unbranded) Omega style deployant clasp which I love because on the wrist it shows very little metal and since the long side strap tip tucks to the inside of the wrist, this strap requires no keeper loops, resulting in a very streamlined look.
