    Baseball glove strap with a beach feel.

    Hello all.

    My customer was wanting a strap for an Orange Monster with a beach feel. He even mentioned the concept of a beachside bar with an old pinball machine. His comments made me recall a summer I spent at the beach as a young teen with an old canvas float that was blue and orange.

    The customer was game to let me have some fun. I've been wanting to do a two colored stitch line for a while and this was the perfect opportunity. I also tumbled/stone washed the buckle to make it feel like it washed up on shore like beach glass.

    Other than sealer on the calfskin lining and an oiling early in the glove leathers life, everything was left raw.

    Anyhow, here it is, the last two pic are courtesy of the customer.

    Thanks for looking





    You can watch something happen, you can make something happen, or you can stand there wondering what the hell just happened.

    And I couldn't be more happy with it. Seriously, if you're thinking about having a custom strap made, don't hesitate to out your faith in Dave. I love it!

    Looks great, I am a big fan of strap changes. It is lot cheaper than buying a new watch!

    Sadly I think I might have to part with the strap. I sold the Orange Monster to get something else and the new owner wasn't a fan of the custom strap. I'm thinking it will be hard to sell since it's so specific to the OM.
