FOR THOSE ABOUT THE STRAPS...I SALUTE YOU !

Welcome to my blog. A blog that is as much about straps as it is about passion, enthusiasm and commitment .

I have been making leather watch straps for quite a while, time in which craftsmanship improves a lot and strapmaking become from hobby, full time occupation. Leather used is quality calf, mostly vegetable tanned in oak barrels. All straps are entirely handmade by me, from designing, tailoring, aging treatments, to old style saddle sewing, no other people are involved in the process.
I just use quality Italian linen thread for durability and a long life.
All straps are fully customizable upon customer order, so series you see are not necessarily need to be done exactly as in pictures, you can choose between different thread color, surface finish, edge finish, padding, tapering, custom orders are not involving additional charges.

I have only praise for the options Cris offers and the straps he supplies. I've lost count of how many he's made for me now.

All are great and i know i will buy more.

Chris,

I found one of your straps while kicking around for options for my Raven Deep Tech...

Can you make it for me? - it's the Russian (green/khaki) canvas...

I'll need it in 22mm width - standard length (I have a 6.5" wrist, and the lug to lug on the watch is about 52mm...

My email is dsfeight@gmail.com

Thanks for your time,
Dave Feight
