    The Aftermarket Strap Thread

    Hey All:

    It seems like quite a few of us have put some interesting straps on our Ball Watches. So I thought we might be able to capture all of the great pics and straps in one thread. I look forward to the great pics everyone

    Trivia question of the month:
    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    Re: The Aftermarket Strap Thread

    Thanks Jeff!

    Here's the flip side of the FrankenBall project: Night Train in White Train case:



    I switched the watch movements back to their original cases soon after these pics, and then sold them. I just saw the White Train sell on eBay for way more than I sold it for. I'll bet the current owner has no idea that the watch had been disassembled for this project.

    So as not to shift off-topic, here are a few more Ball-on-aftermarket-strap pics:

    EMII COSC on notched 24mm Dirk strap:


    . . . on Hirsch Liberty:


    . . . on one of Jurgen's vintage holster leather straps (Swedish?):
