    Damasko Custom Strap Recommendation Please

    Hi,

    I finally received the confirmation that the Damasko watches I ordered a long time ago are ready and will be shipped very soon.

    I ordered the Damasko DA36, and DC57.

    Damasko DA36:



    Damasko DC57:




    I cannot use the supplied straps because they are too small. I have big arms, I need slightly more than 9" for a comfortable fit because my wrists are big and I like to have the watch pushed back below the cuff.

    I am planning to use these watches as my weekend watches because of their anti scratch metal property. So I need a strap that will look good with the watches, and at the same time will be tough and can stand lots of sweat and heat. I sweat alot in the heat.

    Both watches are 40mm diameter and have lug width of 20mm.


    Any recommendations will be appreciated.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I have a couple or Rhino's and some Nato. I personally prefer the Rhino because they are thicker.

    What I am looking for however is some elegant leather straps.

    Any other recommendation?



    Kind Regards

    Hi, I am a strapmaker. I got an email from a fellow about 3 months ago, who is looking for a strap for his Damasko. My suggestion to him was black horsehide with yellow stitches. if you are looking for more exotic, then try black sharkskin, croc, ostrich or ostrich leg.

    regards
