    Handmade straps showcase. Let's see em.

    Been muddling straps together for a little while now and i gotta admit i really enjoy it.

    I find it quite therapeutic and it fills a few hours nicely if i'm at a loose end plus you end up giving your watch a nice personal touch not to mention a fresh new look.
    You don't necessarily have to be a Pam head either to benefit from your creations as i would recommend it to anyone with a watch which looks good on leather.

    Especially those with Speedies. (nod nod wink wink.)

    Anyhoo i'v been trying to make just the right tan strap for my 111 for a while and they always came out a touch too "clean" for my liking until today when i found just the right cut of Italian leather and distressed it lightly then finished it with a little branding from a soldering iron to finally achieve the tan ammo style i'v been chasing.

    Really digging it and it will be a while before it goes back on the stock strap.

    I also know that many are out there also quietly beavering away making their favourite pieces pop with some custom touches so now's the time to come out of the woodwork and show us your handmade beauties.

    As much as I love to hang out on this forum, I am still a sucker for a well made bracelet, and that is what I have been buying lately. Love straps, but bracelets work better on this boy's skinny wrist.

    However, one from the archives.....

    Very nice Nokie. That stitching brings it all together. Pops against the brown a treat as well.

    I would have thought straps would suit the more svelte wristed gentlemen of this world as they are a little easier to adjust but i guess they can hug the wrist making it appear slimmer.

    Gotta admit, very partial to a good bracelet as well. Not quite as easy to make though. ;) I enjoy fixing and refurbishing them just as much as strap making to be fair.

    I've got a pending project in the form of a Rolex 93250 which has a bar sheared in the non removable link section. Should be interesting, gonna need to figure out how to retrofit it to my 14060m as well as it's far from a direct fit, but the thought of having SEL's instead of the rattly ole 501's has got me all a quiver about the whole affair.



    I think i need to get out more.

    Re: Handmade straps showcase. Let's see em.

    Ladies & gentlemen, i'd like to introduce to the stage Crazyfingers. Was wondering when you would show up to the party! Better late then never. ;)

    That blue is divine. Again, that stitching pops. Bet it wears well with some jeans and a T.

    I do secretly love matching my straps to my belt, shoes or Jacket. (or anything i'm wearing to be fair.)

    Again.....


    I need to get out more.

    At least when i do finally do, i'm gonna be cutting some serious style moves. ;)

    That light brown one would look just the ticket on a Speedy but i'v got a bit of a fetish for brown leather on those damn moonwatches. mmmh

    @All in the timing - thanks for those kind words! I'm with you on matching straps to belts. I also agree on the light brown strap on a Speedy. I don't have one, but have seen many many pictures of a Speedy+brown strap and it looks brilliant
