    Thumbs Up My new custom Savage strap

    OK, I just got a new custom strap from Savage.

    It's a beautiful dark brown leather that is pliable and quite soft to the touch. It's very dark brown in some areas and lighter brown in others. It gets lighter when you bend it, almost like a pull-up leather, but not quite as pronounced.

    Scot used a new thread called "Chinese Rust" for this strap, since we both thought it would match the "train tracks" around the edge of the California dial very well. Let me tell you, it absolutely does!

    This strap is perfect for this watch, IMO. The thread color, as well as the brown of the strap matching with the dark brown of the dial give the watch a very consistent overall theme.

    Scot, I hope you're buying more of this hide, as I plan to order a couple more straps in this leather from you!

    As usual, the dead end stitching, side finishing and finishing on the strap keeper is all top notch. This, and all my recent purchases from Scot are without question on par with any of the well known custom strap makers that I've owned (SMAT/Walter, HK Tan, Greg Stevens).

    Scot, you've outdone yourself yet again! This strap is beyond my expectations in every category! It goes without saying that you were a delight to deal with, as always.

    Here are some pics:









    Thanks again, Scot! I really couldn't be happier.
