    Sinn Shell Cordovan Strap

    Iím looking to purchase the Sinn Shell Cordovan Strap but canít seem to find any real life pictures of it. The watchbuys website makes it look almost a yellow-brown but was curious to see actual pictures.

    Can anybody that has this strap chime in with some pictures/overall impressions? I know thereís probably better options out there but not many offer quality straps in short lengths.

    Thanks!!

    Buy custom. Not much more than the Sinn. There are local strapmakers in many countries and Cordovan leather is a common material today.

    For the money, I think its pretty good. My experience with custom makers is that they don't get the smaller/thinner straps right. Maybe I've missed some of the US makers that do this well but the 22/20 and 20/18 sizes are tougher to do.

    Awesome!! This is exactly what Iím looking for.

    And I completely agree, Iíve had 3 or 4 custom ďshortĒ straps made from recommendations on the forums and the workmanship is always lacking. Especially with the taper and for some reason 20mm actually means 19.5 to them so thereís always gaps that show the springbars.
