Holding items is an option, but not always followed thru with. Several month ago I had a delivery on a day we were to be out of town.

We didn't leave home (as planned) because my Bride became ill - when they caught us by surprise.

You can bet your sweet bippy on that ...
today I overheard my bride talking to FedEx about why her package wasn't being delivered.

The short answer was someone placed "this address" on a "vacation hold".

I'm with Strap up there, the bronze BB is absolutely loveable. I hung on the bronze with the slate grey dial, but it seemed less practicle and the something about a steel (silver) bezel just sits right with me. I love what you've picked up, it's sure to aquire looks with age in my opinion.

I suspect the source of the leather (cow, shark, elephant, etc) plus the thickness determines how stiff it is; but I'd further speculate there are things the maker can do to the hide to soften it. I consider this ostrich strap (after a few days of break in) to be reasonably supple.

Q? How thick is your current strap? I just calipered my ostrich along several points. The thinnest point was 4.11mm, the fattest point was 4.39mm. I also have several other straps (Horween leather from another source) that varied along the 3+mm mark - they were significantly better / stronger, yet still pliable vs. those (eBay / Amazon bargain straps) in the 2mm range.

No guarantees he'll drop in but I'll ask the StrapSmith to comment - I've found him very helpful with my questions.

I love the BB bracelet and the quality of the leather strap and buckle with my BB, but the strap is thin, I'd like to feel it on a strap twice as thick yet equally as supple. Love the bronze!
I would be happy to help you get a thicker leather strap that is still very supple. Email me at [email protected] and I can give you a few options. Thank you.

Just when you think a watch couldn鈥檛 possibly look any better. 馃榾馃槑
Seriously, I just love how an epic strap can turn a watch into an
extra extraordinary special edition Wrascal. 馃槈I mean this watch
was already special, but a strap like this kicks up any and every
kind of watch. With this Tudor teaching new heights now !

Ridiculously nice, keep on enjoying !!!
