The Benefits of Bespoke - Vintage Patek Philippe on Tourbe Brune Alligator

Hi strap lovers,
I'm very to share these photos I took of Eric's vintage 18K gold Patek Philippe on newly completed Tourbe Brune Alligator strap.  This strap is a very thin and minimalist strap with no stitching which gives it a very clean finish.  However, just because it's very thin does not mean that it can't be very strong, which is why I've given this strap like all our ultra thin straps a vegetable tanned Kangaroo leather mid-layer (this is commonly considered the world's strongest leather). I wanted to give Eric a super cool lining, so I opted for our exclusive SuperMatte Teju Lizard which is both very soft on the wrist and super moisture repellent (essentially waterproof) and just look very cool as well.  Overall I think this project turned our really great and I'm looking forward to seeing Eric's reaction.

(Even the back of this vintage Patek buckle is very cool!)

Pearl Blue Alligator for Cartier Tank Divan Diamonds

Hi strap lovers.  This strap Alligator strap in pearlescent blue looks just stunning on our customer's Cartier Tank Divan Diamonds watch.  With light padding at the lugs and stitched with metallic Silver thread, which just adds to the sparkle of it's case and buckle which features 120 brilliant cut diamonds.  I think it's perfect combination.  Remarkably, this watch, which sports a very wide strap (29mm tapering to a 20mm diamond encrusted buckle), comes with a black Alligator strap, which while dressy, gives this lovely watch a rather severe, dare I say masculine look.  The Paired with this beautiful Baby Blue Alligator with pearlescent finish, it's got a much happier, more feminine look to my eye.  One of things that I love about watches with white dials is that they look amazing with just about any color strap, but being the natural choice here due to this Cartier's Blued Steel hands. 

This Pearlescent Baby Blue Alligator is from a One of a kind hide from our premium France Croco Alligator Collection, (please see the full France Croco Alligator Collection here) as which we still have enough available for several straps, it's going fast, so if you'd like a custom strap made from it, please don't hesitate to contact me.

We also stock a limited number of 22, 24 and 26mm wide straps as well.  If you are interested in exploring these other offerings or would like complete details and pricing on any of the straps featured here, please e-mail me at Dangerous9straps@gmail.com

Jurassic Black Goat skin from our Safari leather Collection:

Featuring heavily grained and textured Black African Goat leather sourced from heritage British tannery Tusting & Burnett (1938) Ltd. This strap features thick padding at the lugs and is lined with beautiful Classic Tan, Tripon-Monterrey Kidskin leather. And hand saddle stitched with Steel Grey, French Milled, Au Chinois Câblé linen thread. Please note that our products are specifically made to order and will typically be shipped out within 2 weeks of sale.

This strap, like all our straps for 20mm strap will be fitted with high quality Spring bars for no additional cost and for a small premium can be fitted with quick Release spring bars as well, which allows for easier tool free switching of straps.

Satin Black Ostrich Leg skin: 

If American Alligator is the King of exotic leathers then to my mind, Ostrich Leg skin is surely Queen. Ostrich Leg skin is strong, soft and very durable and shows incredible patterning with large scales and small grain pebbling, which results in a unique and visually compelling strap. Our satin black Ostrich leg skin has just the right amount of shine to give the strap a beautiful dressier appearance. Designed specifically for Rolex watches, this strap features thick padding at the lugs, is lined with beautiful Tripon-Monterrey Kidskin leather in Classic Tan and is hand saddle stitched with Steel Grey, French Milled, Au Chinois Câblé linen thread. Please note that our products are specifically made to order and will typically be shipped out within 2 weeks of sale.
