Great publicity, Roland...just a reminder to manage expectations, of which many have been built already

Dangit Roland!!! Wake up and give us the surprise!!!! :)
Hey man it's just 6:30 AM out here on the left coast!And it being Saturday I wouldn't expect him up before 9:00am(lol)...
Well...the time has come guys. I had been promising an update with some really great surprises, and its finally here! After launching last month the second most asked question besides "will there be other dial colors?" was "FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD WILL THERE BE STRAP OPTIONS!" For the former I opted for a blue, brown and no date dial options, and couldn't leave those wanting for straps out to dry! I had been waiting for a package to arrive full of strap samples for me to try out, and it finally arrived yesterday. So today I made an impromptu studio set up so that I wouldn't have to go to the office on a Saturday [its the little things] and snapped away. There are a LOT of pictures in this thread, prepare for the long haul. You can also see the 2.0 version of the bronze buckles in the pictures. Some of you that have ordered buckles in the past few weeks might have already gotten these, the 2.0 versions have a channel on the underside of the buckle to let the buckle hug the strap. They are also thicker.
The news that might excite the most of you is that the guys over at ISOFRANE are letting me get their straps for Olivier! Contact me for more details! Anyone that has an ISOFRANE knows what im talking about when I say that they are bar none THEE rubber strap. They are just super comfortable and the support it gives even the heaviest watches makes them feel great on the wrist. I will be able to offer them as an upgrade strap with my watches, and as you can see, I've already got the bronze isofrane sized tang completed. There will also be a isofrane specific buckle available that Ill debut when its all finished. Yes, black AND blue isofranes will be available! Contact me for more details !
I was also able to find a great THICK brown leather strap with very cool stitching. I think it looks fantastic on the bronze / bronze diver combo, and might be exactly what those of you who pre-ordered the brown dial are looking for. I am also waiting on the same strap in black with white stitching, as well as a dark brown waterproof leather strap. Details on those when they arrive.
I was also happy to find a great soft black leather band with white stich. I love how it dresses up the watch, and it feels fantastic on.
I also sourced some great sailclothe straps in black and blue. I love sailclothe, and think they really look perfect on these bronzes.
Let me know what you think, this is just part 1 of the accessory straps for the Bronze Diver, I am still actively looking for more options and will post another update when I get other options in!
would love to see a wrist shot of the brown strap!
