1 Vintage leather handmade strap for my 99.1 on Tue Feb 03, 2009 2:06 am

A big friend of mine works with leather. He loves to find vintage bags, cut and cut again and release customized watch straps. I ask him to think something for my 99.1.
He found an old bag from 70's and create this strap for me: the colour is dark brown, a little bit dark than tobacco, I think it is simply fantastic! What you think about it?
Once installed I will post pics in Roger's topic

2 Nice strap! on Tue Feb 03, 2009 8:02 am

That's a very handsome strap. The color is rich and the leather has nice character. The cut edges are quite masculine. Are the buckle ends wider than the Dornbüth signed buckle?

I can't wait to see this on your 99.1!

Unfortunately yes...original strap is 22/20, but I decided to release this one 22/22 becuase I love straight straps.
Probably I will use a Panerai OEM brushed buckle like this one:



but I have not decied yet... Crying or Very sad

Look forward to seeing photographs of it on, Andrea.

It's undoubtedly a beautiful quality strap but I wonder does it look slightly too rugged or robust for the elegance of the 99.1?

I'll reserve judgment until we see the final result!
