    Need a custom strap for an IWC

    Hi all -

    I want to get a custom strap made for my IWC Aquatimer, which has those annoying custom end links. I am buying a velcro strap with these end links and am then need to find a strap maker who will replace it with a textured blue leather strap.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a custom strap maker who can do this and who has a good selection of blue leather to work with?

    TIA!

    You should get a number of strap maker replies,but my suggestion would be CADStraps, a member here on this forum.

    Thanks, I'll give him a shout.

    I've email 3 custom strap makers:
    - 1 hasnt replied
    - 1 has declined the job b/c he thinks it wont look good
    - 1 person isnt sure how to attach the leather to the IWC custom end links, and wants me to send him a photo first - which will involve the strap coming halfway across the world, me taking a few photos and then sending it all the way back.
