    My Benarus BRONZE /SNPR strap combo

    After deciding it was time to do something interesting with my father's 53 year old baseball glove, all i had to do was find the right watch to match it with. Well, the Benarus Bronze Moray was an easy choice. very well constructed, keeps almost perfect time and you can get one within 3 days of ordering it. i chose the brown, which looks great. it changes color depending on the light, sometimes it looks more Army green, Very Cool !! dealing with Steve at Benarus was a true pleasure.. Now for the challenging part, who will I trust to make me a strap out of my fathers glove. My dad used this glove in many local baseball leagues that he played in and i also used it for many years in my own leagues. After doing my research, I decided that Joe at SNPR would be the perfect choice. love his work and he lives in one of my favorite beach towns. ( Long Beach Island, NJ) The straps are more than i hoped for and my Dad was amazed with the result. I had a second strap made in 22mm that i put on a Steinhart.. Thanks Steve, Joe and Steinhart for providing outstanding products. now on to the pictures!!!!!

    Wow, nice strap, and what a wonderful, sentimental reminder of you and your Dad's shared love of the sport. It's especially cool he's still around to see it.

    Absolutely AMAZING combo, and perfect choices for your Father's 53 year baseball glove (how incredibly cool is that!!!)

    Love the Benarus Bronze combo the most (and Steve is always an absolute pleasure to deal with), but the Steinhart Mil combo is sweet as well...(Straps look killer, and are extremely well done IMO).

    I've been meaning to have Joe at SNPR build me a great strap, and this post reminds me that I need to get on with it.

    That's a fantastic looking diver-strap combination! I like the using of a baseball glove for a strap, it gives the watch sentimental value as well. Well done!

    Ahhh so it's you who got the nicest baseball straps ever made !!

    Joe posted the beautiful creations he made from the amazing glove you provided in another forum.

    They really are phenomenal straps and its awesome that they also have a family history and a meaning behind them.

    I bet they feel like butter on the wrist.

    Beautiful! Just beautiful!

    I just learned of this thread. Jason, thank you so much for placing your trust in me and my ability to make for you these straps. I hope they bring enjoyment to you and your father for years to come and remind you of all the fond memories made when looking down at your wrist.
