Lot's of gurus here, whos straps I would like to have on my Breitling. But I decided to make one myself. For the beginning I cut my wife's old leather shoes (well, I've got her permission, they were pretty old) and digged into this forum. I have sharpened knifes, bought a leather glue and awl.
I can not find any coating for leather. No one guy (at least english speaking) in London shoe-repair stores knows what is it. Can anyone explain me what is it like and who might know in London where to get this thing. OR - are there any home-made secret recepies for finishing the edges. Thank you.
