Love the colors Big, but I can't pull it off. T hat first one is beautiful, what is it? Nice watch.

The shark's rockin' Al.

I was psyched to grab some tools last week after reading your thread. I stopped at a farm & home store where I'm working out of town and nothing, no dice. So, still all jacked up to get the ball moving I looked for a "perfect" piece of leather that is a crazy heavy black distressed jacked I've had for a dozen years but haven't worn in most of that, nope, no dice again. After sitting on that thing for yrs, my wife took it up with shoes and such to give away last end of last yr.
There's a real town an hour from my stay, if work doesn't ruin me I'll make a trip there this week tool shopping. It's country, there's bound to be a leather shop of sorts. Google will tell.

Holy cow, those straps would make any watch look amazing to be
honest with you there ILEB, and Al !! 🥇🥇o_O🤯 I_Love_em !!😉😀
Hey, and it's fantastic that you are going to try, and make a strap,
or two also Cameron ! :D (y) It has to be a lot of fun just thinking
about doing it, or what you might want to do I would imagine. Just
the anticipation of everything has to be incredibly cool for you.

Because to tell the truth, it's pretty terrific just on this end hearing
about what you, and the guys are doing, or have planned !!! 😲

Thanx AW! The top one is Green Python... I thought it brought out the lume in the Panny (PAM 027, BTW)!

It’s fantastic. I’ve been approached to do stingray and ostrich but haven’t yet. The beaver is my favorite. There’s a couple good snake leathers but haven’t used any yet.

Thanx! FYI... I had a strap made out of Ostrich and it was the worst wearing strap, I have ever had (and there have been a few). Never again. This one was full quill, I have heard that the skin from the leg is a lot stronger/better.

Would you mind PM'ing me if you are taking any orders?

I prefer good leather straps or rubber straps. I own some medal straps and prefer titanium for light ness strength and comfort. Hello to those who may remember me from 5-6 years ago... I enjoy hearing your reviews and suggestions...

Just wanted to share. Quite proud how this came out. I wish it was mine but I just made the strap.

Boy oh boy, wow, yes, can see why you are proud Al ! 🤯😲🥇🏆
Had thought that this was some super cool extra awesome strap
that you picked up at first glance, and was amazed. However, after
a second realized that you made it, and evidently gave it, or sold
it to someone with this Panerai?! :cool:

Well that is pretty spectacular, and whomever has this on their
watch now is very lucky imho. Because the strap looks like a
million $, and it's a watch that looks like a million $ !

That's two million $ !! 😊😀..Holy cow, tremendous job sir !
Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us !!!
