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.
