    My Latest Creation THANKSGIVING DAY STRAP!

    Hey Guys,

    I finished this one up this morning just in time for Turkey Day! I think the colors fit the holiday and I think the strap mates well with my orange- numbered Marina Militare. This one has my usual specs - 150 x 90 x 24 x 5.5mm and is stitched with some thread that was sent to me by a mate all the way from London town! Orange thread seems to be rare as hen's teeth for some reason so he hooked me up with some. Thanks again Kidge! The thread is a bit on the thin side, so I double stitched the strap to beef-up the look of the stitching. This one seemed like it took forever to stitch since I was in essance doing the job twice. Oh well, I think it turned out nicely!

    Hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving!

    Great color combo and I dig the subtle break in the stitching on the buckle strap. Another great job!

    Hey 316L,

    The thickness is 5.5mm. Some may think that to be too thick, but I think it balances out the wide and thick watch head well. I have made thicker straps, but I am starting to prefer this thickness now.

    Archer,

    I was hoping someone would notice that! I guess every possible stitching design has been used by now, so I have been trying to do some subtle things with my personal straps lately.

    To All,

    Thanks for all the nice comments guys!:thanks

    I have to say - I noticed it too! Nice, subtle touch. Looks great on the watch! I doubt every possible stitching design has been covered, but I could be mistaken! :)

    A man with two watches is never quite sure.
