Default New Tudor Black Bay Custom Strap being made!! Cant Wait.

I bought my Black Bay on bracelet and really wanted a killer strap option as well. I have a new custom strap being made by Drew over at Drewstraps...He is the man! He sent these pics last night while he was making it,,,its going to look awesome IMO. I think he's going to stick the small pre v buckle on it and also send along the thumbnail buckle. I really liked the roller buckle but he felt the thickness of the strap wouldn't play well with it.

I really like the OEM strap, but have to say I think for me I will like this even more.

It was old leather from a saddle shop near his area. Cant wait to see it on my Black Bay!! He makes killer straps, his canvas are well known as some of the best around too.

First The Black Bay:




Now the Strap in process of build:

Im really liking that roller buckle Eric...maybe have him send you both so you can check them out. For this watch, I personally think the roller buckle would look better.
