    Planet Orient leather strap

    Just bought a preowned orange bezel planet orient (FEM00002B0) but I really wanted the leather strap rather than the metal. After checking out the price online for the strap ($79!) I am thinking about trying my hand at making one (or several until I get one correct). Does anyone have one they would be able to take multiple pictures of? I am concerned in that the photos on line show that the case side appears to have multiple layers of leather to make fill the machined notch. Photos and measurements would be greatly appreciated.

    Have several thoughts on design, like the black/orange of the original, but maybe a little more orange? Like orange stitching, and perhaps layered back over orange with the black having "rally holes" to showcase the orange underlayer?

    Re: Planet Orient leather strap

    Still looking for some information on this strap and suggestions on how to proceed. Presently I am actively considering doing a catch and release on the Planet Orient. Dislike the metal strap, the replacement leather strap represents almost 75% of my purchase price (yes I got a deal) and I am not confident enough in my strap making skills to try and duplicate Orients design.

    Did you review the sticky at the top of this forum at the list of on line strap vendors to see if any of them carry this type of strap?
