    Stone Creek strap on Blancpain Bathyscaphe

    Got a custom stingray leather strap from Stone Creek for my Blancpain. Normally leather is frowned upon for a dive watch, but I think this one fits the theme just fine. Obviously I will change the strap to go in the water.

    I really would recommend Jeanna's work for your custom strap needs. I am very happy with her results

    Stingray straps look cool... but they also give me a bit of trypophobia - I'm not sure I could ever wear one. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trypophobia)

    Gives the fifty fathoms a even more of a nautical theme. Very interesting!

    Too bad they did not do a rubber backing to the strap.

    I had thought that would make it waterproof too.

    However, the Stingray itself isn't waterproof despite being fish scales. From my understanding, it is tanned similarly like leather to keep it soft and 'bendy'. Soaking it would, like with leather, shrink it and make it brittle as it dries.

    I am also considering a sharkskin strap.
