    How It's Made

    I just saw a segment of the TV show, "How It's Made" on the Science Channel. They were showing how leather strap watch bands were made. It was very interesting and I didn't realize how much actual hand work was done. Anyone else see it?

    They show that episode on occasion and it is interesting to watch the craftsmanship that goes into making a good strap.
