    My Latest Creation 1/18/09!

    Hey Guys,
    I haven’t posted a strap since Thanksgiving Day, but I have been working on a couple, and here is the latest. This one proved to be quite a challenge and took way longer than I expected. I made this one for a mate who resides all the way down in Australia. Anyway, I hope he likes his strap and I appreciate his understanding with the wait. Due to the holidays and the complexity of this strap it took me till last week to get it finished! A Pam style strap this was not! I never worked on this one unless I was “feeling it” because there was little room for error due to the construction of the strap where it meets the watch head. From the photos you can see the watch has an unusual attachment system which caused great pain and suffering here in the ‘ol strap shop!

    The strap is a relatively simple design, save for the lug side, and was made to the fake Alligator/Croc factory strap’s dimensions. The Arbutus watch is really cool, (I like the power reserve feature), and I think the simple black leather with silver stitching strap sets it off. Let me know what you guys think and as always, I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Some time invested in that bugger.

    The watch owner should be happy. Your strap looks cool and better than the authentic.
